I realized a few weeks ago that I was a few thousand miles short of maintaining my AA Platinum level advantage account for next year so decided a quick round trip flight to NYC was in order. I’d get the miles I need as well as a few hours to hang out with friends in the city. Today I’m doing that, I fly out of LAX heading to SFO via JFK with basically a 16 hour lay over. Tomorrow morning I’m aiming to have breakfast/brunch/lunch in the LES with any friends who can make it out. I’m aiming for Atlas Cafe for sure and depending on timing there’s a few other spots I want to hit up before rushing back to the airport. If you are around and want to join, please let me know. See you then!
