When it comes to sex, just let your freak flag fly!

As we were doing some holiday shopping this past season down by Mercer Street we happened to pass by Babeland and decided like stupid giggling kids to drop in. Yes, because nothing says “Merry Christmas” like sex toys! Just be sure to label the presents correctly or you might give mom a heart attack as she unwraps the Orgasmatronic 3000 Anal Destroyer!

Whips and chains and cuffs and lube and vibrators – Ohhhh Myyyyyyy!

Boinggggg! Or as in the immortal words of Wayne and Garth – SCHWING!!! Continue reading Whips, chains, sex toys – Oh My! Babeland NYC!

A spot of Tea & Sympathy in the Village NYC!

Tea, scones, and clotted cream!

Can someone please please please get me a 100 gallon bucket of clotted cream for my birthday? Also, don’t forget about including around 500 scones to go with it, and plenty of tea to wash it down. Check on me a few months later to see if I can fit out of my apartment door. You might need the jaws of life to help rescue me! Tea & Sympathy would be dangerous if I lived closer to it!

Finally had a chance to drop into Tea & Sympathy recently late afternoon on a Sunday for a spot of tea. It was nice and empty and we got a spot right by the front window which was great for people watching, expecially since it is located in the West Village neighborhood, and was as usual hopping with all types of characters.

Balls of steel at Modern Pinball NYC!

Every time I walk into Modern Pinball this famous song sung by The Who pops into my head –

Ever since I was a young boy,
I’ve played the silver ball.
From Soho down to Brighton
I must have played them all.
But I ain’t seen nothing like him
In any amusement hall…
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pin ball !

He stands like a statue,
Becomes part of the machine.
Feeling all the bumpers
Always playing clean.
He plays by intuition,
The digit counters fall.
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pin ball !

He’s a pin ball wizard
There has got to be a twist.
A pin ball wizard,
S’got such a supple wrist.

How do you think he does it? I don’t know!
What makes him so good?

Modern Pinball is a pinball lovers paradise! So many great machines here! Continue reading Balls of steel at Modern Pinball NYC!

Punk rockabilly surfer tiki bar. So much kitsch. So much fun. So many tattoos!

I started off another of my epic bar crawls at Otto’s Shrunken Head for happy hour. It’s kind of fitting that they have $3 pints of PBR of which I downed a few along with a shot of Jameson while listing to the DJ play an eclectic mix of punk, surfer, goth, and rock tunes. Since it was early still I had a chance to chill out as the crowd was sparse save for a sexy tattooed bartender who dug my Star Wars dancing Stormtrooper t-shirt, and the two tattooed ladies in cool throwback Bettie Page styled outfits that asked me to turn around and model for them. The crowd that was in there ranged from older sexy tattooed cougars, to younger hipsters, to fun music types, to punks, to rockers, and other kinds all mixed into one giant flaming tiki bowl of personalities. Half the crowd looks like they want to kick your ass, including the bartender if you piss her off, and the other half looks like they would be fun to get drunk with as they are all here for that one sole purpose. It’s a fun diverse crowd in a fun eccentric retro tiki themed bar! Continue reading Otto’s Shrunken Head – kitschy tattooed tiki fun in NYC!
