After that, we hied down to the park, to wander around the Harlem Meer (where we saw a most excellent drum circle -- I took some video that I'll post once I pull it off my phone) to the conservatory garden, which was lovely as always.
Then we headed over to the Graffiti Hall of Fame, which is part of a schoolyard full of some excellent graffiti from artists around the city. It's a cool place for them to ply their trade without being nailed for vandalism..... After that, we went over to Bier International on 113th Street for beer and sausages before I sent Tina back on home. I had two pints of Bronx Pale Ale, because -- well, I'm a Bronx boy, and they had it on tap! Just a delightful day.
This morning, there was a kids tournament at the dojo, for which I served as one of the judges. All the divisions performed well, in particular a yellow-belt kid who is tiny but incredibly talented and strong, as well as one of the advanced brown belts. The best, though, was the black/brown belt division that included three teenagers, who did superbly, especially in the point-system fighting.
After a quiet afternoon, which also included a long walk for Scooter in the park, we're heading out soon to see Choirfly perform at the Way Station. The latter is a steampunk/Doctor Who-themed bar in Brooklyn, the former a geeky a cappella group. And hey, if you can't make it to Brooklyn, the event will be streamed on Gander TV.
