Yes, sometimes you crave processed mystery meat burgers, grease laden onion rings, and something that resembles french fries, and nothing will stop oneself from attaining this type of meal and stuffing it down your gourd. No matter how much self discipline you think you have, and the intellect to realize that this is not an endeavor that you should really be partaking in, all sensibilities get thrown out the window as you happily shove that 7th or 8th burger into your mouth. Yes, White Castle will do this to a person like some mind control experiment gone horribly wrong.
As a group of us were sitting on the back patio of the Gaslight Pub one summer night enjoying many beers and shots at a get together thrown by a friend the indescribable feeling of hunger grew from within, and before we knew it, there was a mad dash across the street to the amazingly located White Castle. How ridiculous it is that this place is right across the street from a pub that will allow you to bring in outside food. Yes – winning! Continue reading The Human Draino of fast foods.

Big Fat Greek Wedding in Astoria style Jersey Shore fist pumping music dessert cafe.
Holy diabetes they have a ridiculous amount of desserts on display here!

As the evening finally brought with it some comfortable and better weather we decided to take a seat in the outdoor cafe part. I was ready for some sort of sugary sweet treat and this was a good find.
This place is a trip! Booming freestyle dance and clubby house music playing, colored lights change on the side of the building, flickering white lights cascade down the trees lining the sidewalk, our waitress had a thick Greek accent, and we were surrounded by Russian girls conversing over dinner while nearby a young guy in a stylish fedora had the staff sing happy birthday to his main squeeze.

There are certain things that go into my mindset when trying to dictate if somewhere or something I am reviewing is to be worthy of my accolades. I might not have the most discerning palate, or extensive knowledge of food and wine, but I like what I like. I’m a regular guy and pretty easy to please. I enjoy tasty food and fun places to drink and dine at along with friends that have similar likes. I’m a big fan of Czech and German beer, along with the comfort food that goes along with it. One of the terrific and historic establishments in the NYC area is the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden. Not too long ago a group of us ventured out to this famous beer garden in Astoria, Queens, for a day of debauchery and gut busting beer fun. What transpired during our time there made for some fun memories, and has me hankering for a return trip soon! Continue reading PROST! An historic beer garden in Astoria, NYC.
