Republican Convention Preview

I was biking on the west side highway this morning and headed back dowtown. I was engrossed in the new Streets album, when I was stopped in my tracks by a huge crowd waiting to get into Pier 94 (57th and the west side highway). I started looking around and saw TV crews, secret service guys, policemen, and a bunch of helicopters in the sky.

It wasn’t obvious what was going on but I knew there were politicians to blame for my snap back to reality.

I googled a bit and found out that it was John and Theresa Heinz Kerry hosting some breakfast (it must have been one huge breakfast) at Pier 94 this morning.

I can just imagine what NYC is going to be like in late August/early September. I plan to get out of town for that one.
