Here at ArtsEcho Galleria, we love funny. And, luckily, we're in an area in which many jocular people live (not to mention shop, gotta get that in here somewhere...)
We were chatting with some of the engaging folk who stop by our charming little Galleria, and one of them commented on the proliferation of Thai restaurants in the neighborhood. He told us of a recurring nightmare he has in which he comes home and there, lo and behold, (...I always wanted to say that) was a new YumYum restaurant, right in the middle of his bedroom. Waking up in a cold sweat at this point, he then can't get back to sleep as the aroma of nam phrik is so powerful...
As I write this, more surreal things are occurring by the moment. The Great Blizzard of Monday is melting in Friday's 44 degree weather...and enormous bunches of gorgeous balloons (from "Balloon Bouquet" next door) are walking by on their way to Times Square and all those New Year's Eve parties.
Happy New Year to all! May you have good health, enough money and love in your life, and just as important as all the rest, lots of funny stuff to make you laugh.
Sandra, Zoe, Chandra, and the hard-laughing ArtsEcho Galleria team
