Tonight's Dinner

Met up with Youthlarge, Zach Attack 2006, Nate, Heather, Adrienne, Big Eli, Patrick, Vino, Sus, Newell and Klara at the Magician (Rivington and Essex, NYC) for pre-dinner drinks. Had three Brooklyn Pilsners and 2 bites of Youthlarge's leftover scone from City Bakery. Afterward, we headed over to Lobster Night at the Essex sans Youthlarge and Patrick (YL had a work dinner at Freemans (I can't wait to hear all about it) and Patrick rode his bicycle off to where, I'm not sure).

Here's what I ate at Essex (Rivington and Essex, NYC, just across the way from the Magician):

3 Blue Point oysters
6 or so mussels w/ chorizo
Way more than my fair share of calamari served with yummy habanero sauce
1 1/4 lb. steamed lobster w/ roasted potatoes (sprinkled w/ Old Bay seasoning - YUM) and corn on the cob (I didn't want mine, so I gave it to Zach Attack 2006)
1 Stella

Fun, delicious and not too pricey. The bill came out to be $40 a head (there were 10 of us) with a generous tip. Wish I had been sitting closer to Klara though. Feeling tipsy and listening to the Pet Shop Boys right now, so I'm OUTTA here! Good night.
