The Money Shot of Hot Dogs – Crif Dogs NYC!

Now that’s a threesome to get excited about!

I never had wanted to shove a tube of meat deep inside me as much as I had when I encountered Crif!

Boy, that sounds soooo dirty, doesn’t it? The honest truth is that I loved swallowing every inch of this meat goodness down my throat.

Wait! What the hell did I just say? This isn’t a porn shoot!

Eating a Crif Dog does feel like erotic perfection though. Crispy bacon sexiness wrapped around an all beef hot dog, and engulfed with creamy toppings, and fitted into a soft bun sleeve. Alluring and crave-inducing they are like a fetish you secretly harbor. Armed with a recent Groupon deal of $5 for $10 worth of food I came into this den of hot dog debauchery ready to explore my inner meat craving.

PROST! An historic beer garden in Astoria, NYC.

BH_logo_final_225x180There are certain things that go into my mindset when trying to dictate if somewhere or something I am reviewing is to be worthy of my accolades. I might not have the most discerning palate, or extensive knowledge of food and wine, but I like what I like. I’m a regular guy and pretty easy to please. I enjoy tasty food and fun places to drink and dine at along with friends that have similar likes. I’m a big fan of Czech and German beer, along with the comfort food that goes along with it. One of the terrific and historic establishments in the NYC area is the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden. Not too long ago a group of us ventured out to this famous beer garden in Astoria, Queens, for a day of debauchery and gut busting beer fun. What transpired during our time there made for some fun memories, and has me hankering for a return trip soon! Continue reading PROST! An historic beer garden in Astoria, NYC.

To paraphrase the immortal words of Ren and Stimpy – “Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!”

That is the euphoric feeling I had when biting into these char broiled patties of meat goodness. We finally had a chance to drop by this East Harlem outpost of Joy Burger Bar and it really is up in no man’s land – kind of where Yorkville ends and Spanish Harlem meets. I applaud the owners for taking a chance up in this spot, and it seems as if they are being rewarded. The evening we feasted there were brisk take out and deliveries going on, and the dining area had burger lovers constantly filling the tables.

Butter Lane NYC – cupcakes & frosting & icing shots! Oh My!

Peanut Butter and Banana cupcake, Cream Cheese and Chocolate cupcake, Cinnamon Honey and Banana cupcake, and a French Chocolate and Vanilla cupcake.

OMG! Peanut butter frosting with mini marshmallows on banana cake cupcake for the win!

Yeah, this was another of my many drunken excursions while stumbling around the East Village. I figured if I brought some home I would not get into too much trouble. Thank goodness these Butter Lane cupcakes rocked, as my plan worked perfectly. Heh-heh-heh!

As I walked past this small little shop of sugary goodness I was drawn in by the aroma of baked glorious-ness! The concept is pretty simple when ordering up your treats – you choose a cupcake base and then choose a frosting. Cake bases are vanilla, chocolate, or banana. Frostings are a pretty wide range from vanilla, blueberry, raspberry to cream cheese, peanut butter, cinnamon honey, etc. So many choices to mix and match that I needed a little help putting my cupcakes together in the buzzed state I was in by the friendly counter lady.
