TWA, a New Hotel Experience

Catching an early morning flight into JFK is a terrible experience. The trains are usually late, delayed, and/or running local, meaning you need to leave the house at an ungodly hour or dish out the $70+ for a cab. Both options quite frankly suck. Either you start out a trip on no sleep or you…

East Harlem Taco Crawl

South East Asia doesn’t know Mexican food.  Each port that had a “cantina” that served up something slightly resembling a taco or burrito, and the ship Mexican station was unsatisfactory to say the least with meat that looked like cat food and frozen guacamole.  Since being back in the USA, we’ve had an insatiable craving for Tex-Mex,…

Koronet, is Bigger really Better?

Saying something is larger than my head is underwhelming given the fact mine is very small.  But a slice of pizza from Koronet is about 4 times the size of my noggin, and I’ve never seen anything quite like it. When I first walked into this Upper West Side pizza joint, my jaw dropped at the…

Black Ant Happy Hour Review

The Blank Ant is a Mexican spot down in the East Village that has good drinks, good food, and a nice atmosphere with a patio and all.  Happy Hour runs 4-7 pm, and  while you won’t be getting $2 tacos or $3 beers, the price for the value reasonable. Margaritas are $8 down from $11/$12, and boy…

Katz Delicatessen: Worth it?

Katz Delicatessen makes just about every “Top Places to Eat in New York” list, and we finally decided to pay a visit to see if it lived up to the hype. The 1888 Jewish institution cures their own meats, and is particularly known for the pastrami, roast beef, and brisket.  Mile high sandwiches flood Instagram, but…

A Guide to Eating at Arthur Ashe Stadium

I worked the 2019 US Open at the Arthur Ashe Stadium as a brand ambassador for Chase with Two Dot Productions.  I was manning the booths and interacting with customers to promote positive brand awareness. To incentivize timeliness, being on time was rewarded with a $20 meal card for each shift.  Free is the ultimate frugal!!   With 17…

Smorgasburg: Worth the Hype?

Trendy, drool-worthy photos of food from Smorgasburg invade Instagram every summer. But is it worth the hype? We investigated and spent the $$$ and time so you don’t have too!
