Now Playing at @DeliNYC: "The Game Gets Old" and reflections on campaigning #MayorThurston


While catching breakfast and talking to the staff that make Delicatessen the special place it is, the above song came on the sound system. It seems appropriate for this moment in our venue's history.

I speak for my administration and I'm sure my opponent Jennifer Magnolfi's campaign when I say we don't want the game to get old. We don't want to run the same old, uninspired, ooh-look-at-me-I-checked-in-again Foursquare campaign. Anyone can do that. We don't aspire to the uninspiring.

So we're keeping our campaigns fresh, whether it's custom off-menu drinks or t-shirts or rallies or debates. The people may not demand it, but they most certainly deserve it.
