Minor dilemma
Before I jump into the issue on my mind (however small it may be), who's up for Ecotopia tomorrow after work? I've been meaning to go since it opened and I'm adamant on going tomorrow (because it's free on Friday =D ). I've also been putting off attending the Met to see the Cai Guo Qiang exhibit. Well this weekend will be my last chance so who's up for that?

Back to the dilemma, I signed up for the tour of NYC's abandoned City Hall Station earlier this week. I made the cut of 35 (sorry fellow archies) however I'm interested in attending a lecture down at the Credit Suisse main office. Both take place at the same time.

This feels like CMU all over again. I'm torn between the two. The City Hall event may be wasted on me since I'm not an accomplished photographer compared to Kevin or the other guys who have digital SLR's, but when will I ever get another chance to see the place? As for the lecture, I'm actually more keen on going to this because 1) she has a great background and anything I take away from the lecture should be of great value, 2) she worked for Reebok (now owned by Adidas) which sponsors the NFL. Could you imagine the perks?! What to do...

Update: Ecotopia was pretty cool, recommended and plenty of time left to go see it. Cai Guo Qiang's exhibit turned out to be a dud, none of the works on display approached my expectations (from viewing his works online). Piano's lecture tonight, leaning towards the Tam lecture over the City Hall Station tour.
