Fall weekend in NE Pennsylvania

Spending the weekend at the house in Long Pond, PA...a very warm saturday (80s) but by late afternoon it started cooling down. Leaves are changing from green to burnt orange, pale yellow, bright red.
We escaped the neighborhood and went to an early dinner at Max on Avenue B. The outdoor garden (with clothes hanging to dry) was open so we dined alfresco on rustic italian dishes, a delicious salmon with garlic spinach, chived mashed potatoes and a semi-wonderful black ink spaghetti in a semi-spicy tomato sauce with nuances of sweetness (shrimp was overcooked and tough, bummer).
Interesting interaction with the couple seated next to us: couple chatting, then man-boy's cell phone rings, he picks it up and proceeds to talk for 15 minutes at the table. Date leaves to use restroom, man-boy still talking. Food arrives and he wraps up the conversation. Date brings up her displeasure and discusses cellphone etiquette. Man-boy gets defensive and walks away. .V tells the date, "You're better off without him...."
Feasting at our favorite local sushi joint Kura Sushi in the East Village.
One of the reasons why we maintain a disciplined practice of yoga, spinning and (now)pilates classes is so that we can eat guilt-free and enjoy the wonderful treats the season has to offer. Today marked the first day of pumpkin pies on sale at The Little Pie Company....worth the wait? OF COURSE!!
