Serge's Not the Concierge

[Tyler] Well, we made an important discovery yesterday afternoon. Our hotel has two lobbies! There's the downstairs entrance, which is not really the lobby and is where Serge works, and then there's the third floor lobby, which is where we checked in and where the concierge works.

Once we found the real concierge, as opposed to the doorman, a whole world of possibilities opened up to us. The nice concierge gave us directions to Devon Avenue, and gave us important tips on where to take the bus and when to get off ("when it starts looking all Bollywood").

Devon Avenue is the east Indian, Pakistani, and Orthodox Jewish section of town. We didn't have time to walk as far as the Jewish neighborhood, but we did get to sample some great Indian Kabob sandwhiches. Of course, by the time we got there, it was 3pm and we had 5:15 dinner reservations at Alinea, but that didn't stop Rob from stuffing his face.
