On Silver Linings

Today was a bit of a fail. Among my other weekend errands, I wanted to do two things: pick up a book I had on reserve at the Pacific Branch Library and get a slice of pie and a coffee at Four and Twenty Blackbirds. Unfortunately, I found out the hard way that they were both closed today - Pacific Branch because the Brooklyn Public Library is cutting back its weekend hours to save money and Four and Twenty Blackbirds because the staff is baking pies for a friend's wedding. Fortunately, my stroll around Gowanus was soundtracked by Arcade Fire's new album The Suburbs, so it wasn't a total wash.
