Last Friday, a bunch of us got together for dinner in Hoboken. It seems to be a central location for our friends Rob and Jeanette (Hackensack), Donny and Susan (Long Island) and Patty (Mahwah). We started out at a restaurant called O’Neill’s where we had way to many Stella’s (even though only some of us could get the cool glasses.) We also plotted Donny’s Bachelor Party…which is expected to now include people jumping out of a perfectly good airplane.
Afterward, we headed to another bar (name unknown) and had more Stellas.
This year Jen and Tom spent Easter with her cousin Anita. While we spent most of our time in adult conversations with Norm (Jen’s dad), Anita, Anthony, Brian, Liam and Amanda…surprisingly most of the pictures are of Amanda and Liam’s son, Colin.
Earlier in the day, Jen and Tom worshipped with the rest of New York city at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Afterwards, they participated in the Easter Parade, trapsing down 5th Avenue admiring all of the interesting headgear (yes, those are Peeps).
Jen thinks Tom is a little obsessive about this whole Chrinitoid thing. But the good news is that is has been found! A kinetic sculpture by George Rickey, the Chrinitoid, otherwise known as Two Rectangles, Vertical Gyratory Up, Variation III, was a campus landmark when Tom was at Rensselaer, but disappeared in the summer of 1984. After a long search, Tom has discovered that it has been in front of the UBS headquarters in Zurich since 1990.
Way back in the pre-Tom days, Jennifer worked at Morgan Stanley where she met friend James Boyle. Since those days, James and his lovely wife Gerri have had three children: Eamon, Brenda and most recently, Denis. Jen and Tom were invited celebrate Denis’ Christening at Charlie’s Inn in the Bronx. With 33 little children running around, a clown and a surprise visit by The Cat in the Hat, how could you help but have fun!
