After my reunion with my dear friend, he dropped me off at Housing Works Cafe to meet my lovely hostess, Karen, and Balie where we were going to listen to a discussion by Rolling Stone Magazine editors about long-form journalism. It's not exactly my kind of thing, but I enjoy learning about topics that fascinate other people. Knowing Karen and Balie enjoyed these kinds of things, I was curious what it was all about. In short I enjoyed the lecture/discussion and gained some insight into the journalism/media world. If you're in New York and enjoy a good bookstore/cafe/coffee shop, Housing Works Cafe is a great place to stop by. If not for their selection of books, visit Housing Works for its efforts to "fight AIDS and end homelessness".
(Afterwards, Karen and I had a tasty meal at Cafe Habana.)
