I am thrilled to say that this weekend was our last wedding of 2015. As much as I love any cocktail hour, the commitment of attending weddings this season was a bit much. Jordan and I were happy to say goodbye to black tie at Cipriani on Saturday night. Sunday was spent roaming around Brooklyn, drinking beers at The Diamond in Greenpoint for The Brooklyn Mutt Show. After the winner was crowned, J and I took down two wood oven pizzas at Paulie Gee’s. A perfect end to wedding season.
We headed to Paulie Gee’s at 5:30 but there was already a 40 minute wait. With time to kill we walked around the corner to one of Jordan’s favorite record stores, Academy Records. Nothing beats the smell of old vinyl and the thrill of the hunt.
With a new/old Steely Dan album in hand, I convinced Jordan to go into a well curated home store on Franklin Street called Adaptations NY. There were amazing vintage finds in great condition for reasonable prices. We almost walked away with multiple midcentury items but settled on very totable vintage drink stirrers to use at our next cocktail party.
Every New Yorker has their favorite pizza place, and Paulie Gee’s is certainly mine. Nothing beats the Hellboy with hot honey, except maybe the smokey Porkeypineapple. The atmosphere can’t be beat and Paulie himself can usually be found working the crowd with gratis limoncello in hand.
Cheers to the end of wedding season and the beginning of fall in NYC.
