My First Adventure

 

IMG_4515The Crooked Knife.  This was my first “discovery” when I started exploring NYC on Wednesdays after work.  The first venture out all I did was take a different route to my commuter rail station (Grand Central, the most beautiful building in my opinion. More on that another day.)  I walked down a different street and found some cute restaurants.  It took a while, but I finally got up the nerve to go to the Crooked Knife all by myself.  (This was when I discovered most of my friends were not available to go out mid-week).  I sat at the bar, ordered dinner and basically took in the surroundings.  I’m no stranger to eating alone (being in sales and traveling often), but this was different as I wanted someone to come talk to me.  I’m not the type to cruise bars alone, so this was different for me.  My first adventure.  My first purposefully putting myself in an unknown situation.  My meal was nice, the people at the place looked “local” and I enjoyed people watching.  I left after eating.  I had conquered my fear of just trying something new without being disappointed if “nothing” happened.  The more fun result is that on future outings, I went to this restaurant with friends to eat meals in the restaurant area.  And the most fun was a reunion of former coworkers where unexpected people showed up and all the laughs we shared. And plans for future adventures together…
