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.

Happy White People Getting Drunk Day! Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo

Happy White People Getting Drunk Day!

Here we are again at another borderline holiday that really makes no sense at all here in NYC, or in all of the United States really. It’s just another excuse for white people, bro’s and fratties, among legions of suburbanites, to go out and get shit-faced on cheap tequila, margaritas, and Coronas! Now, I’m not saying that myself or my friends have never done the sombrero crawl on May 5th partying it up for Cinco de Mayo, but I’m pretty much over the amateur hour of drunkenness to celebrate a long ago Mexican battle. The date is actually observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s improbable victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. It’s a sense of pride for many in that country. It is NOT Mexico’s Independence Day, which is on September 16th. Just sayin’.

Then again, does anyone really care here in the States? Not really, as it’s just another reason to go out after work and get polluted while eating at bad Mexican restaurants and feasting on nachos and tacos. We all love tacos! There are so many ways to make them – meat, fish, vegan – that there is something for everyone’s tastes. Helps soak up all the booze too. Here’s another fun fact – it’s also Taco Tuesday!

No Bro-Fisting. Just great cocktails at Middle Branch in NYC.

o
Yes sir! I’ll gladly have another!

I’m always up for a quality made libation! Very nice addition to the Murray Hill area close to where I work here in NYC. Middle Branch is the sister speakeasy cocktail joint to downtown Little Branch. Lacking the bro-fisting that is normally seen in bars around these parts it’s a classier choice to score a liquid refreshment. Heck, “Home On The Range” is a terrific cocktail, and at $12 a bit cheaper here than at most speakeasies in NYC!

Been here a few times now for an after work cocktail. As it’s kind of hidden in what looks to be just another residential brownstone you can easily walk by, but it’s not all that hard to find. There is a plaque on the face of the building with the letters MB along with a wrought iron fence that surrounds it. As it’s a two story place the open windows with patrons seen drinking during warmer weather kind of gives it away. Continue reading No Bro-Fisting. Just great cocktails at Middle Branch in NYC.

Creepy McDouchebag and His Dating Dont’s in NYC!

you-are-a-douchebag

Sometimes people watching in NYC can be real fun. If you look around and just listen a bit there are some amazing things happening around us. I walked into my normal neighborhood coffee shop this morning to take my usual seat, connect to the free wifi, and settle in with a hot cup of joe. Being that it was a crappy weather night out I just went to the gym and then stayed in. I finally hit the hay a bit earlier to get a good night’s sleep. On a Friday nonetheless! Lawd have mercy! I feel good and actually got up early to get in here while it was still empty save for a few other early risers. As I sipped my coffee and perused my emails I also wondered what to write about today. Sometimes I have a few ideas swimming in my jumbled mind about a subject or two to ramble on about. I had nothing today other than cobwebs that the coffee was slowly beginning to erase from my brain. Then it came to me like a ray of sunlight breaking through the clouds. Enter Mr Alpha Male Creepy McCreeperstein! Sit back and enjoy the show as he totally destroys a date with what seemed like a nice girl. Grab your popcorn and take a seat on the couch. See the douchenozzle in his natural habitat!
