Smashing Success

The unveiling of Spikus Aurelius was a smashing success. Lovely time had by all. Spike seemed pleased and I received a round of applause, several free beers and an inquiry from the proprieter about the feasibility of painting a picture of his restaurant.

I quit early, motivated by the waning sunlight and my need to ride my bike back uptown. The truth of the matter is, I shouldn't have been so concerned. The West Side Bike Path remains a safe thoroughfare even at dusk. The best part of the ride was stopping alongside the 79th Street Boat Basin to watch the boats bob in the gloam (gloom? gloaming?) and smell the air.
