Upper West Side, Amsterdam Avenue at 83rd Street

After work on Thursday, I met Barbara at her apartment on West 88th Street and we walked down Amsterdam looking for a place to eat. Finally settled on Fred’s. It was all right, we sat outside on a nice cool evening. It’s getting dark earlier and as we sat there, the street lights came on, giving a little kick of excitement. The margarita helped. I had a pulled pork sandwich and Barbara had a Cobb salad. Meanwhile, across the street . . . were they having more fun at the Hi Life? The cocktail glass flashed off and on.

Later, while I was inside, Barbara entertained herself by watching the goodlooking shirtless man in the apartment above the Hi Life make up his bed.

Although the Hi Life looks like a 1950's throughback they have sushi on the menu and items that seem a cut above the basic uninspired bar food at Fred's.

Mary, while it's still outdoor dining weather let's eat at the Hi Life - you can get a shot of Fred's.

What a clever way to get us to click to enlarge. Where is the guy in the window?

In any case, I love this photo, of course.
