Ya mon! Dis be an epic hole in the wall for tastee Caribbean food!

I felt like I was back in The Islands, as I was washed away to Jerk Chicken goodness. As we were at the nearby Brooklyn Museum on a Saturday night for a few hours our group was famished and needed some nourishment – stat! It was recommended by a friend that we hit this place up as the food is off the hook, and she was more than right!

Yes, there always seems to be a line at this place, and a hustling take out business going on. We waited for over an hour to get a table in the small upstairs dining room, and it was well worth it. The whole place is the size of a shoe box. It’s the epitome of “hole in the wall”. I love these kinds of spots. The upstairs attic dining area has about four tables in it, and a low ceiling that you almost bump your head on.

Cheap beers in cans. Pretzels. Divey hipster atmosphere. SKEE BALL!!!!!!

Yup, a bar dedicated to that world-wide Olympic sport of Skee Ball. Well, not really a sport, or world-wide, but it should be. I remember pumping in many quarters at numerous arcades and seaside boardwalks over the years playing this game. Sometimes I am good at getting the balls in the hole, and sometimes I play like a blind man. It’s always a fun game and kind of addicting as anyone can play it.

Four gloriously pristine Skee Ball lanes. Don’t eff with these ballers as they are serious about their sport! Continue reading Let’s go ballin’ in Brooklyn! Skee Ball Mania in NYC!

Heavy Metal Love in NYC – Duff’s Brooklyn!

l

The BEST, and only TRUE HEAVY METAL BAR in the NYC area! F**KIN’ YEAH!!!

You are entering the portal to Hell when you walk through the door of this basement entombment of a bar dedicated to all things Heavy Metal. If you live, or crave, the metal lifestyle Duff’s is your Valhalla. Walking in we were greeted by the music that we love from Iron Maiden to Black Sabbath to Pantera, happy hour with $1 PBR’s until 9pm, a hottie no nonsense bartender, cheesy horror and old porn on the tv’s, horror movie and rock posters and pictures everywhere, with all sorts of horror and metal memorabilia on every square inch of this place. If I ever had a house with a finished basement bar this would be it! Continue reading Heavy Metal Love in NYC – Duff’s Brooklyn!

There is nothing like a good sausagefest! So I proclaimed over and over while shoving loads of delicious meaty sausage into my mauf! Give me MOAR!!!
