Sangria Makes It Better

As I mentioned, I had a date with a very dull man last night.  Lucky for me, he picked a great place for us to meet.  Someplace that would never have occured to me, before.  But it was such a good choice that I’ve decided it belongs on my Best Date Spots list.

At 70th Street right on the Hudson River is a park with a cafe (it’s called the Pier 1 Cafe). It’s one of the newer river parks (and hence one of the newer cafes).  I don’t know how long it’s been there. Maybe five years?  It’s a neighborhood that I don’t usually wander into, that southwestern bit of the UWS where Trumpland casts a shadow over everything for blocks.

Anyway, that cafe happens to have pretty fine sangria.  So on a beautiful night (like last night) you can sit by the river and drink sangria.  Who cares if your date is boring?  You’ve got sangria and the river.  What more does a girl need?

    You know, it’s always good to be able to find something to be grateful for. And if it can’t be your date, then it should be the booze.
