The night started off when I was invited to BAM Rooftop Films to foodblog a car —Carpingo, a new rental service (similar to Zipcar) coming to New York later this month. The outdoor film was The Comedy, starring Tim Heidecker of Tim and Eric. Interestingly, the movie is so dark and sad.

I didn’t want to take anyone’s seat since I didn’t pay, so they ended up throwing me into the FIAT Carpingo car with sushi and wine. It was like a drive-thru, where I was the only car parked behind several hundred people. At one point the headlights flashed on and I didn’t know what to do. I panicked, but then it turned off. I kept imagining what if the car started to drift. It’s been so long since I’ve driven, I couldn’t remember which pedal was the brake. I figured I had a 50/50 chance of saving everyone’s lives or plowing them over. Luckily, it didn’t happen. But being behind the wheel really made me want to start driving again.

Carpingo is giving out free memberships with driving credit if you Text “Carpingo” to 90210.

I didn’t know about this Rooftop Film screening until that day and it sounded interesting, so I ran solo. But it turned out a lot of my friends were there. It was good running into them. I even ran into my ex in the bathroom line …so it was a little embarrassing how long I took in the Porta-Potty. I could hear two people go in and out in the one next to me. I swear I was just peeing.

Then I went with my friends around the corner to Cafe Habana Outpost for tacos and drinks. This place is awesome. It has a large outdoor patio. Perfect night for that. Draft beer is only $2.75!

Tory and I got four tacos to split. Our order was called up with another girl’s. The whole time I thought she was part of our group of friends. Dang, she must have been really confused why some weirdo wanted to take a photo with her and her food.

We really liked the catfish and pork tacos vs the chicken and steak. Maybe only because the latter ones were cold. I had a good time at Habana Outpost. I even ran into more friends there. It was crazy.
