After a weekend of hardcore thrills and excitement, and just when you thought Halloween was over ... Halloween night landed on a Tuesday … #bruh
How did that happen? To be honest, it just does. Even so, there were some great benefits to this occasion. Allow me to tell you my tale ...
I was finally able to make it to the yearly Halloween Parade that takes place in the West Village. Seeing crowds of people in costumes was definitely refreshing. Nostalgia settled in, reminding me of my younger days as a toddler. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not that old!! Lmao ...but, in light of that specific moment where memories flooded my brain, I felt like a little kid again.
Just think about it for like 2 seconds ...
You were this tiny human being that saw a world filled with giants. Not to mention, all the candy you received was GIANT in size. Just putting things in perspective here haha.
Anywhoo, the night wasn’t as I would have expected. An occurrence comparable to that of a terrorist attack filtered some of the excitement from the overall parade vibes that night. It wasn’t as noisy as I would have expected it to be.
Eventually, my childhood guys and I decided we should go to a local bar. "Off The Wagon" had a pretty dope environment that ended up turning into a pretty amazing event. We took the party to the 2nd level where we met the most awesome decoration ...
... the Hammock-Laying Tater Tot LOL ... (don't judge, just laugh)
Before you judge at the randomness, this thing was part of the party. The spider webs were hanging from the walls and a tater tot was simply lounging in a way we couldn’t imagine possible. It defied the laws of physics, similar to the dancers at the House of Yes in Brooklyn. hehe.
Moving on. Haha.
My friends went home and I decided to make my way home. On the way there, I decided to check out another group of friends. I ended up partaking in an unwanted adventure to Brooklyn because I took the wrong train. Yeaaaaap. Being as positive as I am, I decided this was a perfect opportunity to cross the Brooklyn Bridge on foot.
... And so I did!!
It was one of the most beautiful experiences i’ve endured in a while. Being able to see both skylines was totally worth making it to Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Bridge and I had a date that night; seriously, it was just the bridge and I on the 1st of November.
Alright, the rest of the night is history. Haha. I ended up meeting my long time girl homie in the Meatpacking District for another Halloween Party. Eventually after that, she told me we'd be heading to another place in the area. Apparently, we had a limo waiting for us outside.
I should have known ... once I stepped outside and noticed that it was actually an Uber XL ... my mind should have told me ... something was amiss.
Another Uber pops in to pick us up and takes us to this place called Ritz. Yea, I thought it was the Ritz-Carlton Hotel as well.
NOPE. I was at a pretty flamboyant bar. Bahahaaa. The community was great, but I felt like a girl in a men's locker room. Getting eye facked is something I can handle, but god bless all you women who have to deal with dudes touching you all over. Shyeeeeet!! This was a new level of embracing that culture. The older dudes there had a good idea that I was straight, but the younger one's ... oh boy. I don't mind chatting with people but keep your hands aways from the goods man bahahaaaaa.
Moving along, I made it home and went to work. Story is over.
I’ll end the blog there.
Sending you and your loved ones plenty of love!!
