Yup, it’s a new year and I need to get a few things off my chest. In my daily travels around NYC there are some things I observe on a daily basis that just rub me the wrong way. Even though it’s the first week of 2013 with the air of new beginnings some things just never change. Experiencing a few of these first hand this week made me ponder a bit. It all adds to my list of Rantings & Ravings.

Now that Friday is here after a long work week the weekend is beckoning with evenings of bar hopping and debauchery. The afternoons will be swollen with pubs broadcasting college sports and baseball, while the nights will be overflowing with partiers. Beer will be flowing. Cocktails will be served. Dancing will be had. Debauchery will be on the agenda.
