Cruising on the water along the east side of Manhattan island while rocking out to good music and seeing some terrific sights on a beautiful night is always a plus. Doing this for free is even better!
Not too long ago I received an email from Goldstar with a free offer for tickets to attend a Rocks Off Concert Cruise. I figured it would be cheesy good fun for me and my girl to enjoy a night out, especially when she is a Journey and Bon Jovi fan, and a cover band called “BonJourney” was performing on the boat. Yes, I am serious. This was just too funny!
The weather was absolutely perfect for this that night. The crowd was certainly mixed and was almost cartoonish. Younger rockers, older women in outfits they have no business to be wearing, middle aged people pounding down overpriced drinks, a group of older Asian ladies hanging out and eating food they snuck in, a group of loud drunk Russians dancing horribly, cougars on the prowl and mauling some of the younger guys the drunker they got, older married women acting like groupies as if this was the real band, etc. It was a sight to behold, and made you chuckle as if you were observing a really bad reality show competition. This was people watching perfection! Almost like a train-wreck people of Wal-Mart television show. Continue reading I’m on a boat! Rocks Off Concert Cruise!→
Ready to bang my head and rock out with my c**k out!!!
Rock of Ages is a blast from the past. This show absolutely rocks! Man, it brings back memories of long hair, great music, spandex, concerts, great rock clubs, hooking up with girls, lots of drinking, and fun times. I lived this life as did many of us back in the era when the bars were hot, the music scene was hotter, and the babes were scorching! It was just a non-stop optimistic party scene and if you missed out on the 80’s you truly missed the most fun decade of outrageous music and clubbing. Continue reading Rock Out With Your C**k Out! Rock of Ages Broadway!→
It’s about time that the far Upper East Side where East Harlem meets starts getting spots like this that you would normally find only downtown. Earl’s Beer & Cheese is located in a pretty vacant stretch along Park Ave and 97th where the train overpass meets the tunnel underground. Not much of a view but who cares when all you need to look at are your terrific beers and wonderful cheese plates.
As others have mentioned the place is insanely tiny. Personally, that does not bother me as long as I can grab a seat or spot to enjoy my brew. For others I can see where they would become claustrophobic quickly. When we arrived here around 6PM on Saturday there were only around eight people there, but by 7PM I had counted around 25 and it was jammed packed. This place has become popular very quickly in this neck of the woods, and for good reason.
Chalk up another one for The Gluttony Files! You have to figure that with the amount of bars and fun drinking holes all over NYC that I would end up polluted at a good amount of them. This one involved a whole lotta rum!
Did I really ride a purple unicorn over rainbows while dropping acid last night?
Cienfuegos had me tripping the light fantastic. I still don’t know what happened but I hope I can show my face in public today without getting arrested.
A decor that looks a fairly land scene from True Blood. Everything is pastel colored, sparkling lights, large over sized chairs, and candle lit. It is almost like entering a speakeasy with it’s narrow stairway to the second floor and being greeted by a statue of the Blessed Mother. Huh? Ok – bless the hangover I will end up with after this!
