Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Illuminated Mexican Restaurant

We had quite the snowstorm here in New York on the same day I had to travel to Brooklyn for an Art Opening. Lovely. As much as the snow and wind created an unfortunate commuting experience, it did also make for an opportunity to take some nice photos. Pedro’s Mexican Restaurant, located at 73 Jay Street, at the corner of Front Street, is illuminated by exterior lights that change color in rotation, and I stood still just long enough to snap this photo just as the lights were turning Pink! Excellent.

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink City!

I have a friend at my day job named Darshan, who is from Mumbai, India. Darshan is a very fun and cool person who enjoys learning new American words and talking with me about delicious foods. Darshan rocks. Anyway, just yesterday, Darshan, who is only too happy to talk to me of life in India, told me that the city of Jaipur, which I have actually heard of before, is also called “The Pink City” because many of the city’s buildings are a shade of pink. This talk of a Pink City got my attention right away, of course, and I decided to make the Pink City of Jaipur India my Pink Thing of The Day! Yay!
