thanks to all who posted, turns out work got suppa-tough and we had little time to hang out-- we accomplished 2 things only in the realm of "fun":
1) arrive late to the knitting factory to see circle, miss oneida completely, and catch only 2 songs plus th encore of circle's set.
2) eat kebab & that place in macdougal street-- truly awesome, especially after some drinkies.
the rest was work & sweat & junk food & little sleep. but it was like a vacation, exciting to work in new york, and the 6-day workout was great.
