Retracing my steps 

The evening outing is supposed to run 6-8 but at 8:30 there is still no clear exit strategy and people are wandering out on their own. 

I am glad now that I had something like the presence of mind to pay attention to landmarks as we made our way via parade to the evening festivities. Google is of course in my pocket also, so I’m not flying blind either way. 

The streets are busier now, drinkers and partiers on a Tuesday night, amid just everyday dinner-goers. Not yet to the pee-in-the-street portion of the evening, but I make my way quickly the handful of blocks back and am glad to be back indoors, air conditioning and an elevator ride away from packing up and heading to bed.
