You Win Some You Lose Some

You win some, you lose some.  Jen's birthday yay, Donald Trump wins the election, oh no
Austin Texas' famous Alamo Drafthouse Cinema opened up a location in downtown brooklyn and we went to see "The Handmaiden" Park Chan Wook's latest.  They still have a few kinks to work out but I'm looking forward to soaking in a lot of not you average films here.

their bar is a house of wax

Jen's Birthday at Mission Chinese and their Twin Peaks Laura Palmer hallway downstairs playing the creepy Laura Palmer theme with a photo of her at the end.

The famous Phil Khallins drink with coconut milk and gin

the piano and fishtank are cool but Mission Chinese has been ultra hyped and maybe that effects my judgement, overall I'd say it's "OK" and expensive for what it is.  Other friends defend this place and have been multiple times though.

Jen's birthday celebration day coincided with election day 2016, Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton.  Clinton was a sure win and someone even got a permit to hold a gathering at the intersection of President Street and Clinton Street near our house.  

We went to check out the scene but at that point things were going down hill and Trump was projected to win, everyone was gone and seconds later this food truck left as well.  The party that was supposed to happen at the intersection of president and clinton was not to be.

Back at Abeline the reality is setting in, the mood in the bar is dreary, people start going home.  Me Jen and Micela went to our house and stayed up past midnight watching the numbers come in.  The next day the world was blindsided and Trump won the election.  Now in December he has one the electoral college as well.  I hate politics but this one is significant because I'm not white and Trump has been a very bad example for bigotry towards many groups of peeps including minorities.  I could give a sh!t about politics, basically I just don't want to be the victim of a hate crime or slander or prejudice or other injustices that are now running amok in Trump's America.  Because I have in pre trump's america and can see it happening more in the future.  I seriously fear for this new America emboldened by Trump out in the open.  Sad to think this has been festering all this time.  I'm not a trump basher or someone that feels superior making snarky comments and talking down to trump, I just don't want to get ching chong'd more than I already am.

what do they need this huge mobile boiler for in Red Hook?

Steven tries the Bull Penis at Kenka.  It's gross.  After many drinks I wake up the next day with a fever and full blown sick (Yoon was visiting and I knew I was almost there and this was the death blow).  From here on out i've been of middling health with another full blown sick outbreak even!  Is this how winter will be for me now?

The Other Half on a saturday to buy beer for thanksgiving, this Fully Frothed was delicious.

arty commentary on America photo.

tried the new fancy pizza place in red hook, pizza moto, good stuff.

halloween happened we gave out candy at our house and watch a scary movie but that's it.  No one wants to get into halloween now, I offered the motivation but no one took it.  I had the perfect costume too.  3 diglets and when we stand together we would form dugtrio (pokemon)  It's brilliant and no better year to do it thanks to the pokemon go popularity.  You guys suck.

Citibike has made it to brooklyn and now these new stations take up 3 parking spaces all over the place and add more bikers and tourist bikers to the streets.  sure bikes are great but are the trade offs worth is?  This one is at the end of our block.
