I’m just sitting here on the couch tonight watching tv. Kicking back in my sweats and a beer at my side. It’s at times like these watching sitcom reruns that I start to crave some sort of munchies. My inner fattie craves pizza, Fritos, or a whole bag of peanuts, but what I really want dammit is a big-ass hot soft chewy pretzel! Yeah right, now that my ass has molded into this cushion on the couch and I’m all comfortable there is no way I’m getting up to go out and find a hot pretzel. I’m in for the night. It did get me thinking though about some really good pretzels I had lately.
Yup, my mind goes off on weird tangents when it comes to thinking about snacks. Here’s a short list of a few favorite pretzels and related pretzel things I have munched on in NYC.

I have to say I am a pretty happy dude living in Manhattan right now. With the recent winter storm Nemo dropping by for a visit dumping over 30-38 inches of snow in areas such as Long Island, Boston, Connecticut, and parts of New England it has caused a major headache. People are still snowed in their homes. Roads are still closed. Airports are playing catch up over cancelled flights. People’s cars are still stranded and buried under mounds of snow.

In a city where it seems you have to mortgage away your life savings just to live here sometimes you have to make some tough decisions when it comes to spending. Especially when it comes to nightlife, dining, and fun time! The majority of us are barely getting by as most of our paychecks are handed over for rent, bills, and the basic necessities of life. Hey, one must have enough toilet paper on hand at all times! We New Yorkers are a city of people that work hard and play hard. After a long work week we still find a way to go out and party, even if that means digging into our cash pile meant for bills, or we dig in the couch cushions and coat pockets for enough change to have some drinks. Isn’t it a thrill when you come up on some dollar bills you had stuffed into a pocket and forgot about months ago? Heck, I need to find some way to keep my thirst for good booze quenched!
