Immediately after returning home from my recent trip to Pittsburgh, I was back on the road (literally.) On a late Sunday night, I was driving up to Hartford CT for another audit. With all of our usual Ipe activities, I didn’t start the drive until 9 pm, but at least I got to enjoy a family dinner. I stopped somewhere south of Hartford for gas tank refill and a coffee break, where they gave me the all of their remaining Munchkins. Gladly, I was able to show restraint by only eating a total of three Munchkins. 😉 Guess they were throwing them away.
Unfortunately I was unable to find a decent hotel in the city of Hartford itself, so I grabbed a room at the Doubletree Hilton – Hartford – Bradley Airport. On our first night only (Monday), my coworker and I had time to drive into the city of Hartford itself for dinner at the City Steam Brewery. Service was slow on a slow night, food was decent. The hotel was okay, but the location (near the airport) wasn’t exactly scenic.
On Tuesday evening, we left Hartford and separately drove to northern Westchester, where we would be for more meetings. Once I arrived and checked into the completely underwhelming, dark and dingy, still being renovated room at the Holiday Inn – Mt. Kisco on Tuesday night, I got changed. I got casual, then hit the road to visit my friend Saji for dinner near Peekskill at Bangkok Spice Fine Thai in Shrub Oak NY. It was good to relax and dine with an old friend.
Wednesday was all meetings, then back in the car for the long ride back to NJ.
