Max Hits the Lower East Side

Last weekend Debra and I and the Cutie Pie Guy went to New York City. We went to our friend Jen's surprise 40th birthday party.

Jen's husband Marc had all her friends to to a neighborhood bar to surprise her when she and Mark stopped in.

The bar was Manitoba's on Avenue B, which is owned by the obscure punk rock star Handsome Dick Manitoba. This is a great bar in one of my all-time favorite bar hopping neighborhoods.

Also, they let Marc play videos of Jen as a teenager, to her mortification.

Max got to meet many of our old friends.

Jen gave me a tip that there is a store on Avenue A that has Ramones onsies, so Max and I went on a quick shopping excursion. The baby clothes were sold out, but we did find somebody painted a nice mural on the wall of what was once King Tut's Wah Wah Hut.

I am making that expression because it is hard to compose a picture that you are going to take yourself through the viewfinder of the camcorder pointing the wrong way.

Max spent most of the time at Jen's party dancing and hitting on the bartender. He is such a heartbreaker.
