Bryant Park Cafe & Bar – an outside oasis in NYC.

o

Enjoying my Funemployment with a beer sitting outside on a beautiful warm Summer NYC day at the Bryant Park Cafe patio bar!

Yupper, I have had some major life changing developments over these past few weeks, and I now have some free time on my hands to fill my days, but that is a blog post for another time. As for now let’s just say that I’m taking some much-needed “me time” and exploring my options. Why not do it while enjoying what the city has to offer during the terrific weather we have been blessed with lately? Beer me baby! Continue reading Bryant Park Cafe & Bar – an outside oasis in NYC.

A little Tex-Mex love in an old familiar NYC space.

Avenida Cantina? Why does this place seem so familiar?

Cheap, filling, and tasty Tex Mex in the space Idle Hands bar used to be. In these days NYC is constantly changing and evolving, yet it still took me by surprise when we wandered in here for some post happy hours eats and realized it was an old haunt of ours.

Upstairs dining area is totally repainted and redecorated in a bright cheerful decor but we still recognized the layout of a bar we had some good times at. Oh, the drunken memories! Idle Hands had a solid beer and whiskey list, rock and metal bar in a hovel of a basement lair downstairs, burger joint and tater tots to chow down on upstairs, along with a bunch of Yelp events we attended here.

Well, Hola Everyone!

It’s been a while since I posted here as things have been in flux with my life. Job has been a bit stressful lately, but that seems to be the story with most of us toiling in the corporate world. Still waiting with bated breath for that big Powerball win. What’s up with that shizz anyway? Sparky wants to get paid, dammit!

Anyway, I decided to get back to writing here and offering up my chicken scratch for your consumption. Just about a month ago I ran in the Cupid’s Undie Run for charity. It was damn cold that Valentine’s Day weekend with frigid temps and wind gusts that would make even Santa Claus freeze his snowballs off. Even so, we persevered and ran along the West Side Highway on that cold but thankfully sunny day in our undies. Sure, I did sport my red heart decorated boxers, red Deadpool shirt (because it was a love story!) and red top hat, but I also cheated a bit and wore a terrifically warm fluffy red robe that I earned as an award for my fundraising. Heck, as long as I earned that thing I was going to wear it! No freezing my coconuts off for this kid! Needed any heat source possible on this day.

Come hang with Burt Reynolds at Joe’s Bar NYC!

Bowl o’ fries done right!

Hot dang, even though I have been here a few times now I’m finally writing a review for Joe’s Bar. What the heck is wrong with me? This is one of the best spots on the Upper West Side of NYC to chill out at! Just let me extrapolate on their attributes hopefully without sounding like a love crazed fangirl.

Tasty burgers. Even though I am no longer eating red meat I can still rave about the juicy goodness of their cheeseburgers here. Oh, and the bowl of fries is damn skippy too!

Great music – old school 70’s rock & roll, hip hop, and rap classics playing at any time. Man, it makes one realize how bad today’s music really is. Continue reading Come hang with Burt Reynolds at Joe’s Bar NYC!
