It’s Friday Bitches

This Town Sucks!

I mean there is not shit to do here in the summer! I am kidding because if you didn’t find something to do this past weekend then you really weren’t fucking trying. Friday afternoon we decided to meet up with UWS Holly for drinks. Now back in the days of us living and working in the UES it was kind of easy finding a place. But with momma coming in hot from Dirty Jersey, me being down in the West Village and Holly being in the UWS we figured that the Top of the Metropolitan Museum was only fitting.

The weather on Friday was prefect. Not too hot, not too cold and we didn’t have any rain on Friday! It was a win-win! Now there is a big ass disclaimer on attending any rooftop in New York City. Bring an ass-load of cash! Seriously it costs a lot of money to catch your buzz overlooking the city. I won’t go into detail on what a round of two glasses of wine and a specialty drink cost you but it does create a moment of pause when you think that you want to get your swerve on the top of the Met. It was fun and if you are here in the city during the summer I suggest you put this on the list.

IMG_3431It has been a while since I was in the proper Museum and we never went to the Greek Wing to get to the rooftop. We need to head back.

IMG_3429Notice that the folks on the rooftop dress up just like the Peabody Rooftop bars.

IMG_3430Looking towards the UWS and the Dakota is in the distance. Or is it the Ghostbusters building. I need to work on visiting the UWS more often.

IMG_3432Damn Nova even has her own building up here. She has the cool president, free healthcare, a building with her name on it but she doesn’t have Bud Light. So take that!

More tomorrow as Saturday we cranked up the Damn Volume and Ripped off the Knob!

Carbunkle Trumpet a fan of the Art World?

It is kind of strange to read that title isn’t it? Do you recall my post around Labor Day when we made a Trip to the Metropolitan Museum? We had said that if we were in town and didn’t have anything going on Friday afternoon then we would visit the museum and try to better ourselves. Believe it or not, this past Friday was the first Friday we had off since Labor Day that were able to go back to the museum. This visit we toured the French Impressionists and somehow ventured into the Middle Eastern art so that was a bonus. I have to come clean, I really dig it. The thought that I can walk 10 blocks and see some $hit that one would only see in movies or in books is so cool. Get over it if you are shaking your head right about now.

Now before you think that good ole CBT is trading in his clic reading glasses for some purple octagonal shaped glasses and a nerd suit forget about it! After spending an hour or so in the museum Mrs. Trumpet and I always head quickly to the bar to celebrate the weekend. On this trip we made it to the Met’s balcony for some red wine and symphony music. Again, we are not forgetting where we come from, the band didn’t know “Mustang Sally” or “Freebird” but they said they would get the sheet music for it.

 What’s the significance of this painting? This is Honoré Daumier from French Marseilles 1808-1879 painting appropriately named “The Drinkers by 1861” #hellokettle

 Sadly we did see the one that Thomas Crowne snagged for that sexy ginger Rene Russo


Imagine our surprise when we found out the wall murals that adorne the lobby of the Arlington Hotel are from this dude too!

 Pablo Picasso – Never heard of her

 Anybody think this should be a urinal?

 Here is Crete’s version of Larry, Curly, Moe, & Schimp

  Didn’t James Bond swim by this in “For Your Eyes Only”?

 Say hello to Goat Boy!

  Why is my favorite former Vet Tech & lover of San Pedro Belize and her parrot Cleo hanging on the wall in the Met?

 Art is hard folks.

Any friends who want to come see art like we do, give me a call.
