I woke up around noon to a call from Jon Whitney… We had talked about doing something fun today, but he called a little earlier than I expected (which was fine, just a surprise :P). He picked me up around 1:30 and we headed down to Newbury St. because he had to sell some CDs. I found a cheap used copy of the 3-Disc “Bowie at the Beeb” limited edition, which was cool. We then headed to Kendall Sq. to drive by theater and see what time The Royal Tenenbaums was playing. We had to wait for awhile, so we went to a nearby place for a snack (since we couldn’t get dinner reservations until 9pm at the restaurant, more on that later).
We saw the movie around 4:30, and it was quite fun, and afterwards we headed over to the Museum of Science for a Laser Light Show (which we got into for free)… I had never been to one of those deals before, and now I know why… I mean, don’t get me wrong, it was cool, but door price was $7.50, which is kinda expensive… We had to leave early so we could catch our reservations at The Helmand, an Afghani restaurant. The food was outstanding, although I felt a little dressed down for the atmosphere of the place, but whatever… My money is good, right? :) It turns out that the guy who owns the restaurant (and another one in San Fran) is the brother of the new Afghani interim leader… Small world, eh?
