A few weeks ago I was stuck on the subway for a half hour. I know it could have been worse, but silly me just watched Pelham 123, bad idea! I was by myself and had my sketchbook and was taking notes of everything that was happening and coming up with solutions in my head in case something happened. After I found out that is was simply a mechanical disfunction I chuckled. Every New Yorker has to get stuck in the subway at least once in there lifetime!
Found a great place to go and be a five year old kid again! Fat Cat is similar to Chatterbox in Minneapolis, it is a bar/restaurant where you can play all sorts of games. They have ping pong, shuffle board, darts, board games, pool ect. This was a fun night!
The interesting thing about NYC is that there are so many fun restaurants. This one in particular had a very interesting bathroom setup. They had chalkboards for the walls and chalk was placed in cups in the bathroom. This way if you feel like spending a bit more time in the bathroom, you know make your date get a little uneasy, you could write or draw on the walls. I thought it was fun!
Mood fabrics loves me and hates me all at the same time! Finding the right fabric can be exhausting! An assignment I had at my internship was to find the exact kind of fabric that the client had for a promotional event. We were making 160 white jackets and we needed the fabric and jackets made in 1.5 weeks... that is what I call a time crunch! Running around trying to find fabric and a seamstress was quite the mission. But all and all it came together!
