When a Vietnam Veteran Predicts All


"We met through friends one freezing winter evening - Not yet an East side convert, I vetoed his Murray Hill lounge suggestion for Above 6 in Columbus Circle, and he was on board (flexibility, check). We bonded over lychee martinis during an epic 8 hour first date where we befriended a Vietnam veteran who thought we were engaged and gave us a scratch & win card to scratch off at our wedding (which Niren unfortunately lost) and a lucky $2 bill (which we still have!). We ended our night with obligatory late night eats and a 90s music sing along. Though neither of us would admit it at the time, we both knew on our first date that the Vet was onto something!"
