I love my coffee. I am a caffeine whore and not ashamed to admit it. Yet, I am not one of those coffee snobs that refuse to enjoy a spot of tea now and then. I am an equal opportunity caffeine jolt addict. I do like many types of teas, and there is nothing better than experiencing a high tea with your choice of scones, sandwiches, desserts, and assorted tea flavors. Mmmm……stick a pot of tea in front of me with some biscuits and clotted cream. Orgasmic bliss. A caffeinated food coma bliss, but happy nonetheless. That is why I wear sweatpants when hitting up a tea house. Don’t judge! Guys like me need room to breathe. Continue reading A spot of tea with Lipton K-Cups Review and Giveaway!
I have officially signed up to enter Tough Mudder on July 12th in Andover, NY. Yup, I’m putting my body on the line again for a terrific cause. I’m taking on Tough Mudder to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Serious running, gym sessions, training, and conditioning is starting this week. 10-12 miles and over 20-25 military style obstacles encompass this event so I better get in shape. Now, I know what people are thinking. It’s the holiday season coming up. There will be all types of evilly delicious bad foods and sugary delicacies all around and ready to ambush me at every turn. Dude, half your blog is food porn! Actually, for me it’s the perfect time as it will offer a good reason to not be lured into all the bad eating and drinking. I am sure I will be enticed along the way and succumb a bit. I am a sucker for seduction! Thanksgiving and vacations are coming up. Hey, I still have to enjoy life you know!
Please join in, and help me reach this goal.
As a relative of those who have served and are currently serving it is an honor to help with this amazing cause. We need to support our wounded servicemen and women who have given so much to protect and fight for our freedom. Tough Mudder is all about overcoming obstacles, together. Your support will help me reach this fundraising goal and help others overcome their own obstacles.
I salute all those who have served and overcome so much, but know that many still have a long ways to go. The Wounded Warrior Project is a wonderful cause and does so much to help these people who have sacrificed so much for our country. Continue reading Tough Mudder / Wounded Warrior Project – putting my body on the line again for another great cause!
Recently I had the pleasure of being invited to a pre-grand opening night at the new Bottomzup Bar and Grill located in the Murray Hill/Kips Bay area of Manhattan. Being that this part of town is also known as “Bro Hill” because of all the frat bars in the area I did not know what to think of another bar opening up along 3rd Avenue in the 20’s. Well, when I walked in my mind was blown! All I could see were flat screens as far as the eye could see. 45 sixty inch flat screens! Stadium-like sound system. Photos and pictures of famous athletes, teams, and sports shots placed floor to ceiling. A sushi and raw bar. In a sports bar! Full bar area with their own specialty cocktails, drink specials, and plenty of seating. 14 beers on tap and even more in bottles. Super friendly and attentive staff. No matter where you sat there was a birds eye view of any game you wanted to see. This is the ultimate football and sports watchers bar!
As a guy that has followed New York sports my whole life, and as a sports fan in general, I can truly appreciate the attention to detail and planning that went into a bar such as this. There is so much to look at here! Along with plenty to eat and drink. Continue reading A Big Ass Man Cave Bar Opens Up In Murray Hill NYC!
Female Focused “Liberty Prime” Steakhouse
Opens In Jersey City
Presenting Steak in its Rarest Form: Fashionably
Grand Opening Monday October 14th: A new kind of Steakhouse comes to Jersey City.
Liberty Prime Steakhouse will be located at 111 Montgomery Street, in the heart of downtown Jersey City, within walking distance from the Grove Street & Exchange Place PATH station and just minutes from Hoboken and New York City.
A little background about the owner – George Makrogiannis has been a restaurant owner for years, and has always had a vision of bringing his own steakhouse to Jersey City. He has joined forces with the famous Moran’s restaurant in Manhattan and the Davenport group to launch Liberty Prime and make his dream a reality. His familiarity and expertise in the restaurant business makes him extremely selective, choosing only the best quality cuts of steaks in the metropolitan area. The opening of Liberty Prime is a tribute to George’s hard work and dedication, as well as to his passion for the restaurant business. Like every great steakhouse, Liberty Prime makes quality meat its priority, but unlike every other steakhouse, they also pride themselves on their female friendly focus.
