September 6. Brooklyn, NY. Moto Restaurant. w| my mom, sister, and her friends:
My mom and I met in NYC for Labor Day weekend to visit my sister, see several shows, and eat our way through Manhattan. Nancy and Dave made reservations one night for a restaurant near their apartments, in Brooklyn on the edge of Williamsburg. It was a stand-alone little place that looked from the outside like it could have been a speakeasy at one point. Or an autobody shop.
It had a cozy vintage feel. After we sat down, the band came in to set up. Right next to me. Now and then I chatted with the band between their sets. The food was amazing. I was with my mom and sister for the first time in a loooong time.
