Riding Hell in a Handbasket all the way to NYC

151-hell-in-a-handbasket

You ever go through a day and wonder where has all the time gone?

It’s become one of those days that even if I cloned myself there would still not be enough time to get everything done. I am sitting here taking a breather while wolfing down lunch just to type this while on another window trying to answer all my emails. It’s a repetitive vicious cycle that never seems to end. On one side I feel as if I’m all caught up and raring to go as if I’m pumped up on Viagra and Red Bull, and then on the other I’m all limp as a wet noodle running in quicksand and just can’t get invigorated enough to jump over the hump. My brain feels like a bowl of jello, and not one of the good flavors. More like that green lime monstrosity that no one really seems to like. Maybe I need a mental health day soon. A day to chill out with a few drinks and lay in the sun. I really don’t take enough days off. Maybe it’s just me but I feel that if I take a well deserved day off now and now everything will end up as “Hell in a Handbasket”. Then it’s more of a shit show to deal with when I get back. I need a day soon.

Sweet Grass Grill in Tarrytown NY – a tasty train ride away!

l (2)

Sweet Grass Grill is a terrific choice for dining along Main Street in Tarrytown with the look and feel of being fancy, but it’s rather quite casual with a down home vibe. It’s a quick train ride north of Manhattan and makes for a wonderful day trip on a weekend. The town itself is quaint and historic as it’s also the home of Sleepy Hollow where Washington Irving lived and wrote the famous story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” which has been made into movies and a popular TV show which I really enjoy. Even though it is a small town there is a lot to see and do here. Mansion tours, street fairs, quality dining, and some nightlife along main street.

When we were here for a recent weekend jaunt we dropped in for dinner before heading home and grabbed a table outside since it was so nice out. The menu is not too expansive but offers a diverse selection of plates to choose from. I like that they go local and seek out farm fresh ingredients from the nearby area. Also, there are seasonal soups, salads, and a changing roster of entrees. Vegetarian options too for those non-meat eaters. In fact, they have Meatless Mondays with a special vegan tasting menu on hand. Brunch is also served, and they have a decent wine list and micro brewed beers too!
