I just had the best cab ride ever in New York. Aleman from Argentinia picked me up by B.B.King’s and took me uptown to my hotel. She was blaring Colombian salsa and smiled and offered me Altoids. I don’t think it was my breath, but the fact that I dug the music.
We had a great show at B.B.King’s tonight. I was inspired by a lovely Caipirinha at Cafe Frida, see above picture, and the best Mexican food I have ever had in New York. I highly recommend it. Columbus Avenue at 77th Street. I followed the Caipirinha with some Sangria and by the time we arrived at the club I was in the perfect mood for some jams.
Funny thing about New York audiences is that they drop all of the “New Yorkness” at the concert and are so warm and welcoming. I love it. You know what I mean, New Yorkers are supposed to be jaded, they have seen it all etc… I find them very warm and wonderful.
Oh, and check out all of the photos Adam uploaded to the Flickr Pool – see link on the right side… He took a lot of pics last night and tonight. My thanks to everyone who came to B.B.King’s.
