Long live “The NYC Rat” !

Tickets? Tickets? Anyone need Knicks tickets?

For those of us who live in the NYC area we have all seen our fine furry friends. Those fanciful creatures that roam our city streets at night. Crawl through our sewers. Rummage through our garbage by the sidewalks. Ride alongside us in the subway tunnels. For better or worse we are stuck with them. They will outlast us and always be here. Yet, I am not speaking of those dirty disease carrying rodents scurrying throughout our city. I am talking about those giant inflatable rats that seem to pop up overnight!

Black Friday Madness!!!

Black Friday. Those two words together just give me the willies. It really makes me shudder in fear. Sorry, but I am not a fan.

In an era when many new bars open up and try to cram as much modern technology into every nook and cranny like some Vegas mega-sports-bar-ultra-lounge Frankenstein monster it is surprisingly refreshing to walk into a place such as Nurse Bettie here in NYC.

Like a throwback to the 1950’s Bettie Page style pin-ups. Simple, chic, and sexy with free burlesque shows on Wednesday and Thursday nights performed by some pretty talented and hot temptresses. You can almost picture this place full of men in fedora hats and women dressed to the nines back in the day drinking proper cocktails while enjoying the visually arousing entertainment on the stage.
