Tonight, we met two of our friends for dinner at a Filipino restaurant downtown, and then we went to their apartment close by for a night of board games and drinking. Our friends have a fairly large apartment on the east side, so they oftentimes invite friends over for meals, games, and just hanging out.
When I lived in Elmhurst, I would have loved to invite friends over more often… but I lived in Elmhurst, which is a place most people never wanted to go to since it wasn’t in Manhattan or in a trendy neighborhood in Brooklyn. Now, we live on the Upper East Side, but our space is a bit too cozy to have lots of friends come over at any one time. Even our alcohol stash in our fireplace is being cramped. I’m looking forward to getting a bigger place so that we can host friends over more often this summer.
