Last Night in New York

Posted on 2008/11/12 21:57:32 (November 2008).

[Thursday 6th November]
Today the conference thing wound up - most of the major talks etc had finished by the early afternoon, and a lot of people were already heading home.

My flight was not until the following morning, so I, along with a handful of other people, had one last night in New York.

It wasn't a hugely eventful evening - I didn't really want to stay out too late as I had a very early flight in the morning. So again we meandered in the direction of Greenwich Village, where it seemed all the interesting bars and restaurants were, and found somewhere for dinner. This time it was a sort of Pan-Asian restaurant wherein I had an assortment of vegetarian sushi. It was very nicely presented, but not particularly inspiring taste-wise.

After that, we rounded off the evening with a drink at the Slaughtered Lamb "pub". It was another American attempt to imitate a British pub which reminded me once more what a special and unique institution the genuine British pub really was.
