Once in a while the need to escape NYC beckons. Don’t get me wrong as I love my city but there is a lot more to see and do outside of the five boroughs. Plenty of towns up north just a train ride away of only an hour or two ride.

After spending a day trip up in Cold Spring NY wandering around, shopping, snacking, exploring, and sightseeing we checked this place out for a mid-afternoon lunch. It was called Hudson Hil’s.

Great service.
Delicious food.
Quality portions.
Bright country-style decor.
Breakfast served all day.

Boom. Continue reading Day Tripping to Hudson Hil’s in Cold Spring NY.

WEBSTER HALL BRINGING A LITTLE COUNTRY TO THE CITY

EAST VILLE HOEDOWN ON SATURDAY, August 16, 2014

Hot damn I know where I will be at this Saturday! That’s right folks, they are doing it AGAIN!  Not too long ago there was a rompin’ stompin’ good time at East Ville de Folies and East Ville des Carnivale events. After the rip-roaring success of the last East Ville event, Webster Hall will host its 1st annual Beer, Whiskey, Moonshine, Bacon and BBQ event – called East Ville Hoedown. The countrified event is scheduled to take place on August 16, 2014 encompassing all four floors of Webster Hall!

YEE-HAW!

Now, I am the type of guy that enjoys a cold beer. Listens to live bands. Kicks back with a tasty whiskey now and then. Has partaken in a shot of moonshine or two. Of course, I love my bacon and BBQ! Yet, who has time to stroll out to the country? So, these good folks decided to bring the country to the city! It will feature your favorite Americana beers, the best whiskeys, bourbons and white lightning Kentucky and Tennessee has to offer. The event will also enable consumers to taste bacon in ways you never imagined along with mouthwatering BBQ. Hot dang! I am already drooling as I am typing this! Bacon!

YEE-HAW!!! Sweet Tea Bourbon Lemonade served up in mason jars. 

If you are looking for a Texas themed bar you can’t go wrong with this unpretentious watering hole down in the East Village called by the name Double Wide. Two rooms, one a lounge area, and one a bar area. Some flat screens with the game on. Cool, friendly, and sassy bartender chick who laughs at your stupid attempts at humor and mixes up a mean drink.   

Seriously, she seemed to fill up half the mason jars with bourbon – wow! At only $8 each of these are intoxicatingly affordable. Being that we were here during Yelp Drinks Week it was an outright ridiculous bargain at half off! I got a bit rocked off these! I do have to say I love drinking out of a mason jar. Makes me feel all country-like. Add in my bourbon love and I was about to get up on the bar and do a two step. Ride ’em cowboy! Continue reading Frito Pie! Come get Double Wide with me in NYC!
