After sleeping in, Mike and Kyle and I headed out to get some brunch. The need for caffeine took us to Blue Bottle Coffee, interestingly the same company whose excellent coffee satisfied me when I was in San Francisco. From there we went to The Bagel Store, where the toasted everything bagel with scallion cream cheese was exactly what I had wanted with the H&H Bagel. Advantage: Brooklyn.
We chilled for a bit at Kyle’s, caught up on SNL, and then I headed off to take the MTA to JFK. The trip took about an hour, and was pretty smooth and uneventful. I got to the gate a little over an hour before my flight was to start boarding, and before you knew it, it was back to Los Angeles!
