found a sweet bike for Jen on craigslist
The carriage houses of Hunt's Lane in Brooklyn Heights.

Ran into illustrator Alex Eben Meyer and child at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

this vintage Schwinn is in great condition and refurbished and tuned.  It feels really solid and smooth and it even came with suicide breaks.

Folksbier tasting room's new look.

hardening off the seedlings gradually over a week.  This winter has gone into spring and since I have no experience with this I inadvertently killed a bunch of seedlings because it was still too cold outside to even start hardening them off.

the all grain BIAB beer me and bob brewed is the best tasting stuff we've made yet (Jen says the prior batch was better, maybe cuz we used different hops).

my hairbrained hoophouse plan.  That in the end works

watching Sandy's dog Pudge, an Asa Lhapsa.  He's great cuz he will fetch the ball and bring it back and throw it back at you

the oppressive midtown office scene, seen from Shillington's prior graduating class's exhibit.  It's the design school Jen's going to

for steven.  Also frequented by Shillington staff because Shillington started in Australia.

the hops rhizomes finally came in.  We're growing Centennial (ex. Bell's Two Hearted Ale uses centennial), and Cascade (ex. Sierra Nevada pale ale uses cascade)

we spent way too many hours putting this together and messing it up and engineering it and drilling new holes etc...  I tried to design it so i could unscrew nuts and bolts and store it away and not use screws that would destroy the wood over a few seasons.  I also needed it to be lightweight so I could lift it up daily to tend to the plants.

Freddy's has some Amelie like sitch going on with their side kitchen who has a screen at the bar that is of a live video camera of the order numbers that are ready.

Bob didn't get to see the final product, just the frame.  Here is your satisfaction bob.

lashed together these two bamboo trellises.

Another brew sesh

Another April Another DC

A Karaoke party at Celine and Yoon's apt and Kelly Koo was there for a conference.  exactly at the stroke of midnight a neighbor down the hall knocked and said they could hear us through a wall a wall a wall.  In hindsight I don't know how anyone thought it would be ok to have us all singing at the top of our lungs

directly across the street from the whitehouse.

The Obamas portraits were revealed recently at the National Portrait gallery but they aren't the first to have non-standard portrait styles.  JFK by Willem De Kooning

Bill Clinton by Chuck Close
Barak Obama by Kehinde Wiley

Michelle Obama by Amy Sherald

an ad on the metro for the F-35 Lightning II fighter jet.  Don't know why or who they are advertising to other than touting 'Merica

the USA Science and Engineering Festival.  Zackary passed by all this cool stuff because all he wanted was to see the "body" stuff.  This thing shows where your veins are.

some new Raider helicopter.  This was a STEM festival for kids with lots of coding booths, and other sciences but there was also a huge section for military booths because it was put on by the department of defense.  Recruiting them early?

Jen's crowning life achievement.  She was obsessed with finishing this 1000 piece puzzle so we had no choice but to help her.  These are Disney's Tsum Tsums, some clever person's way to sell a new product line of disney charcters in this cute simpler style.  


JP, Jong Pil came to New York from Seoul for 2 days as part of their honeymoon
quick stop at Cafe Steinhof in park slope for some German sausages

coffee at Cafe Regular

like half of the beers at the Other Half right now have lactose in them

Fat Cat adult playground.

JP got thrashed
it's said that Joe's Pizza is the best slice in NY, it's pretty good but I would argue even table 87 is a better slice but I guess its not a traditional slice place.

JP's dream would come true the next night

we got a drink upstairs at the Olive tree cafe and bar and saw several famous comedians hanging out at the bar and in booths

Bagel Hole is a gross name and the place doesn't look like much but it is the best bagel in the Parkslope/Greenwood/Gowanus/Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill area and Mayor Bill De Blasio's favorite.

the pizza slice Louis CK eats before he runs down into the comedy cellar in the opening credits of his show Louie.  We saw Colin Quinn at the Comedy Cellar then at BBQ at Mighty Quinn's (not very good!).

welcome to NYC JP.

we drank some craft brews at home and then JP and Emi were off to Cancun in the very early morning.

transplanting into larger containers.
