UNLIMITED SANGRIA BRUNCH FOR $20. YESSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

Was I pretty hammered after this meal? YESSSSSSSS!!!!!!!

Only twenty bucks. Twenty dineros. Twenty bills. Twenty dollars. A Jackson. Well, you get my drift.  Living on the UES close to Spanish Harlem we are blessed with some pretty delectable Latin inspired restaurants within a short walk or subway ride. We had been meaning to go to Don Pedro’s for quite a while now and finally had a recent Sunday open to try it for it’s amazing brunch deal. Well, now that I am sober and recovered enough to shake the cobwebs out of my head this morning I can fully appreciate the wonderful dining experience we had here.

Crispy foodgasm drumsticks – Bon Chon Chicken NYC!

l

Mmmmm….soy garlic chicken drumsticks! Kim Chi coleslaw! My taste buds and head were swooning in foodgasm over this crispy delight!

I don’t give a damn what anyone else has to say about this Bon Chon Chicken location. Really, I don’t. Just stop, please, stop your whining.

I did not have any problems with the service when I dropped by here for a late lunch today. In fact, everyone was quite nice, attentive, and my food came out quickly.

I didn’t use no stinking Groupon or Living Social deal or any dang coupons. Sometimes you have to just suck it up and pay the real price. Wahhhh – they did not want to accept by coupon. Wahhhh. Oh, just shut up already before I beat you with a chicken bone! Continue reading Crispy foodgasm drumsticks – Bon Chon Chicken NYC!

Sights and sounds of the NYC underground.

Sometimes when traveling underground around NYC and it’s outer boroughs I feel as if I am a rat scurrying around a maze with all kinds of twists and turns. Some passages I take are dark,  some entranceways are narrow, and some are just quite scary. Yet, among the hustle and bustle there always seems to be something going on to be entertained with. The amount of talented people who live in the NYC area is mind boggling. Sure, at times the subway performers can drive us crazy when trapped in a crowded subway car, but then you come across a few that really make you pay attention and take notice. There is so much musical and artistic talent that sometimes it makes you slow down and take it in for a minute or two. I just had to take a few pics of some while making my way to the next train or hurrying to get to work.

Not sure if these guys are mimes or what but they did look cool. Wonder if I could make a withdrawal at that ATM? Continue reading Sights and sounds of the NYC underground.
