Yesterday I saw something so buoyant and bright yesterday I couldn't help but become buoyant and bright myself. A parade of delivery folks walked along West Broadway about 2 PM, each one of them with
a huge cloud of golden balloons suspended high over their heads. Evidently they were delivering them to one of the expensive hotels or restaurants that are out neighborhood for a big midnight balloon drop. Under the sun and extensive patches of blue sky of the afternoon, in which the balloons did shine like gold, it was an uplifting sight.
Today and tonight -- another party, uptown, and more Cuban music, downtown, at SubRosa and a midnight rumba at the Zinc Bar.
