NYC – 7/4/14 – Raines Law Room, Library Bar @ the Nomad, Narcissa, the Third Man

It’s so nice to have friends in town who love cocktails even more than I do. Even better is how absolutely deserted most of Manhattan is on July 4th. If only everyday was like this I would stay here forever.

Narcissa
The first time I was here I ended up horribly sick from a migraine and remember about 20% of my meal. What I remembered was good, although I wasn’t sure that I could trust my memory. Thank you friends for humoring me and giving me a redo.
