you'll be fine that late....and it's not like you wouldn't be fine at any other time during the day, you'd just be presented with lots and lots of obnoxious behavior.

when we lived in alphabet city milano girl and I had a tradition of going to takahachi and getting a table near the window so we could view the nonsense from a distance.

I'm gonna go into every bar with a high number of Santas and mill about saying "Keep calm and Chive On" until somebody buys me a drink.

It later cited a law enforcement official as saying that what was believed to be an explosive device had been set off on a subway platform around 7:30 a.m. ET and that a person was arrested and had non-life-threatening injuries.

Obviously take all reports with a grain of salt this early on, but it definitely sounds like someone who tried and failed to set off a bomb and injured themselves in the process. I'm already at work, thankfully. Sounds like the commute will be a nightmare for lots of people.
