    Another good catch up

    Sep052010

    Last night wasn’t as hectic as Friday night, but I’d a good night all the same. I met up with my friend Joanna who works in a bar down off Wall Street – the Full Shilling. From there we went to a bar where another friend works – the Sixth Ward. It’s over on the Lower East Side.

    A good catch up

    Sep042010

    Yesterday, after spending most of the afternoon getting footage for a new video which will be available on the site soon, I’d a great catch up with my friend. Hadn’t seen him in a long time.

    Over the last six months I’ve started to use Twitter a lot more than ever before. Both from the @hostelworld account and also from my own @colmhanratty account. Through this, I’ve got to know a few people. Last night I met them as part of a ‘tweet up’. Sounds sad I know, but it turned out to be a great night.

    At the US Open – my first visit to a ‘major’

    Sep022010

    This entire trip has been a last minute one, but when I found out a couple of weeks ago when I booked my flights that the US Open was going to be out in Flushing Meadows I thought I simply had to go.
