Culture Hopping in Manhattan

What can I say about Matty? My sister said someone should follow that kid around with a pad of paper, when he was four! No surprise he's turned out a bit on the artsy side like, say, his Dad? First stop? Village Cinema for subtitled Swedish film about rebellious punk youth in  80s Stockholm.

Next, a stroll through the East Village, where we opted for spicy Ramen, gyoza, and delicious yakitori skewers at Japanese hole-in-the-wall Oh Taisho. 

Crosstown to Soho and the place is jumping.

Then, to complete the cultural journey, on Matty's cue a visit to Israeli-based Aroma for his beverage of choice, a sweet reminder of his trip to Israel this winter. 

I couldn't have asked for a better pre-Father's Day date!
