Bad decisions can affect the people around you. Our worst decision was to go skate in Manhattan close to RUSH hour. I’m sure how it happened and why no one put their foot down, but the session went downhill really fast. In the morning(afternoon) we skated various spots in Brooklyn and things were ramping up to be a very eventful day. Just as everyone was warmed up wasa when it happened. WE ANSWERED THE PHONE & AGREED TO STRAY FROM OUR SESSION. Now, I’m definitely not blaming anyone cause we have all had our fair share of SHIT SESSIONS, but little did we know that a big ball of nothing was coming our way. So, we meet up at the WALL ST. Ledges, KICKED OUT. New ledges on the water a block away, KICKED OUT 3 TIMES. Then, the idea to go uptown, BAD. I know I didn’t kill anyone but I quite possibly could of caused some car to car damage. We zigged and zagged to find our way uptown. FUCKING TRAFFIC. WE QUIT! Not one clip. Not one photo. Not one NOTHING. So we coward our tails between our legs and headed to the EAST RIVER BAR session. On our way however we passed this loading dock you see before you. We drove a block passed it before I stopped the car and “FUCK this, who want to get a photo.” David Johns & Wild Bill were quick to eat that cake. We posted up and started shooting. Luckily the two pretty ladies you see in the photos, CAROLINE & MEGAN, were there to help us work through our anxiety from our disastrous day! THANK YOU FOR BEING GOOD SPORTS! Anyway after the business deal was completed it was time to take a load off & meet up with all the BLADERS at the BAR BASH! WAHOOOO! Remember kids DON’T DRINK till you are 21 years old & DON’T SMOKE EVER!!!!!

      Looks yummy! I call this my “dhidheer bhaji” little time to cook and tasty too. many variations we could try with garnishes- mix with roast groundnut powder/ hung curd/ sprinkle basil leaves… even adding chilli-garlic sauce and soy sauce adds to the taste- makes it taste like “indian ch1#2se&n82ei;!!
