Well, as per usual, I got so drunk early Friday afternoon I had to leave Fifth not long after 4 and came back for a Domino’s Pizza (4 Stagioni, medium, 12 euro) and then passed out to sleep. Woke 7 or 8pm with a raging hangover and no desire to go back to Fifth, or Cine Paris, or Empire. Some soothing classical music (Klara Radio) then back to sleep till 430am, and awake since then. The morning then just dragging terribly. Finally I can take it no more and get dressed at 730 to go to get a McDonald’s and something from the snack shop next door at least but both are still closed. A rainy, drizzly, dark black Saturday morning. I content myself with a Red Bull in the Max lounge for now. Sad to see the little chip shop next to McDonald’s has also closed down. What with Cine ABC and California Peep Show still standing as empty shells, this end of Adolphe Max is really becoming a wasteland. How much life, sleazy life maybe, the naughty places gave the street a few years ago.
