This was one of my favorites: Shimmering Substance by Pollack
We all go through phases when we are gung-ho, model tourists in our own cities, right? But it can be really hard to drag yourself out to see the cool concert or new fancy cocktail bar. When it feels so difficult, though, we probably need it the most.
On Friday night, Peter and I went to MOMA for the first time.* Walking around, chatting about paintings and architecture models and photographs -- it was very romantic. He held my really heavy winter coat the entire time, and if that isn't enough to make you melt, well, I guess you have higher standards than I do? (Plus, melt! Winter coat joke! Oh yes, pun intended.)
We also realized while wandering around that we'd never been on a proper museum date before. Oh my gosh, four years in and we finally realize we are cultural lame-heads. So sad.
Not to worry -- the situation can be remedied. Peter, Met date on Friday night? Or, you know, sometime before 2014.
*MOMA is free every Friday night! But I bet all you cultural non-lame-heads already knew that.
