as long as i live in manhattan, i should:

230/365

there is a low, guttural call in the pit of my stomach.

it is the desire to spend a night in a basement bar dancing to nothing but bob marley (or any music that came out of paris in the 1960's).

to leave the bar only when forced and wander the streets of lower manhattan in search of breakfast.

this is entirely doable, non?

who's in?

Me, please!

Monique said...

Taylor said...

If now isn't the time to do it, when will it ever be?

Britti said...

I think it's one of the best ways to spend a night - dancing.
I do this once in while. It always screws up my day-nigth rythm, but it's worth it.

Sladjana said...

I am so IN! :)

Sounds like a fun night/morning....if only I was there I would dance the night away!! Read your blog often but don't comment a lot. I love it still!

Bel said...

i am coming all the way from sydney in october to spend 4 weeks in lower manhattan, so please let me know if you'd like some aussie company.

i guess i should point out though... i may not be the best companion when it comes to navigating my way around in search of breakfast. wandering aimlessly however is absolutely one of my top 5 life skills.

Natasha said...

I am so totally in.

Emily said...

Oh, yes please. I love the wandering search for breakfast as much as I love dancing the night away. (Which is a lot.) I'm in!

marissa (stylebook) said...

Lottie said...

If I didn't live across the pond I would be there with bells on!

Brittan said...

Ashley said...

Definitely in. There is no better time then now to do stuff like this. =)

Ana Magdalena said...

count me in, I get this desire far too often. sometimes Saturdays, I want to go pray in church, others I want to dance the night out.

kate said...

I'm so in! Just set the date.

Libby said...

Yes, please!!! Sounds like my kind of night!

Mary Grace said...

Oh I would love to join you! We would cheap coffee afterwards but a good laughter would definitely make up for it.

Katie Anderson said...

Go. Go do it now Meg!

look a little closer said...

yes!

Alex said...

Yes, please.

Anonymous said...

What?!?! No way!!!! Bob Marley's music came out of Paris in the 60s? Cah. Ray. Zee. I had no idea.

Erin said...

Totally doable! I like when breakfast comes without sleep. It's so much more interesting.

Rachel said...

meeeeeeee. I've been awfully tired of the west coast lately anyway.

Mackenzie said...

Emily said...

Bob?! I'm in!

paddle to shore said...

ha! I am SO in.

m.w. said...

i guess i just don't understand the whole blogging world, but there are all of these people above me here saying "i'm in!" and stuff like i'll buy plane tix to meet you and do this activity!" and stuff but really...

...all of these social agreements are just in a virtual world....none of these plans and enthusiastic agreements to enjoy the world with wild abandon (as you say in your post) will ever come to fruition, so....

i am left baffled. by the blog world. it's all fake. it's all just internet non-happening stuff. No one responding to this post is actually ever going to come join you in a basement bar dancing to bob marley or wander the streets of lower manhattan in search of breakfast. Everyone is just going to do it in their minds or on the internet.

Including you.

Blogging highlights why genuine human interaction is going straight into the existential void..........you're not ever going to really dance to bob marley in 3-D and then write about it afterwards. You're just going to slap the virtual idea of it up on a computer screen and not even have to do it in real life.....

this is gorgeous. i am in.
