You wait at The DOG and DUCK playing the game.
She’s not far. It was your idea to meet at the bar.
You check your phone. You’re starting to think maybe she’s fled.
Just hold on, bro. Chill you’re at The DOG and DUCK. A Sunnyside neighborhood joint. Moonlight hits Skillman Avenue and comes through the gastropub‘s large windows. The room’s warm and cozy though the walls beg for art work.
Locals sit at an island near the front window. You hear them talk. You hear them laugh. You got your phone and you’re scrolling Tastoriaqueens. com
The door opens. It’s not her. You wonder–’tis the season when you’re heart gets broken?
So, what are you going to do?
Thirteen beers on tap. A selection of Red Wine, White Wine, Sparkling Wines and Andy’s Fall and Winter Cocktails with names like Figa, 46th Street Makers and Hair of the DOG (&DUCK). Isn’t that enough to keep you happy if you come down with a case of holidaze?
Or, maybe you want to choose from the DOG and DUCK’S full menu which includes Bar Snacks, appetizers, selections from the grill, from the sea, braised, roasted and stewed selections, rice, pasta and side dishes.
The barkeep comes over. You’re about to ask for a 46th Street Maker when your phone lights up. You get a text. She’s not far.
Your cocktail arrives. ( Makers 46, English Marmalade, Lemon, Vanilla, Sweet Vermouth, Angostura’s Bitters). Two sips later someone taps you on your shoulder.
Oh yeah, oh yeah.
Ain’t no holidaze here, Jack.
