Beautiful Saturday in spring
Andy and I met his college buddies Jake and Cesar for a shopping expedition to Soho
First stop: the Puck Building. In the lobby, a display of antique printing plates
Andy shopped for glasses at Warby Parker, the hip n groovy store that sells cheap frames and books
Clearly modeled on the Apple Store, Warby Parker swarms with friendly smart salespeople who look like reg’lar folks, conduct sales with handheld devices, and eavesdrop on conversations, eager to answer free-floating questions
Shopping for a wallet, I poked my head into Pearl River Mart. I didn’t buy this one.
We wandered through the arty throngs looking for someplace to have drinks.
Jake and Andy
We wound up at Pera Soho. Cesar wrangled the blistered shishito peppers.
Kim showed up after her pole-dancing class in time to share some charred octopus.
