Making My Taste Buds Sing at Saigon Market NYC

Wow, this place brought back amazing food memories of their old sister location that used to be up by me on 88th and 2nd ave in NYC. We were craving some of their wonderfully tasty plates after discussing some of the good eats we had there before the spot by us closed. Well, sometimes wishes do come through when gluttony is involved!

We were recently down by the Union Square area and my girl remembered that Saigon Market was close by, and being that it was dinner time we decided to forgo the normal Seamless route or cooking at home to head over here and feast! Continue reading Making My Taste Buds Sing at Saigon Market NYC

Miss Saigon on Broadway – a NYC Experience Not To Be Missed.

As the cast took their bows and the curtain dropped I knew I had just witnessed brilliance.

Wow. I have no words. Stunning performance. Damn onions under our seats making me cry.  This run of Miss Saigon on Broadway is for a limited time only, and a must see if in NYC.

Triumphant! Absorbing! Emotional! Powerful! Moving! There are so many feels I experienced while sitting though this performance of Miss Saigon. Even though the base story is kind of sad you still could not deny the uplifting soul of this musical. The talent of the cast coming over from the West End in London shines during every act. The singing soars. The stage design is perfect. The costuming superb. The special effects are truly what makes Broadway magical. I read many positive reviews of the run Miss Saigon with this cast received across the pond, and it did not disappoint. Continue reading Miss Saigon on Broadway – a NYC Experience Not To Be Missed.

This terrific NYC cocktail joint made me say – Attaboy!

Even this beer guzzler of a dude can enjoy a libation made from the finest ingredients now and then. The boozier the better I say. Living well is so choice.

Attaboy NYC! I could not believe that it had taken me this long to partake in the wonder of a liquid refreshment at this establishment. A good friend of mine asked me to accompany him on a bro-date and embellish in an evening of cocktails, conversation, carousing, and devious behavior. Who am I to decline an invite of such stupendous possibilities?

I have a soft spot for Speakeasies, as they take me back to a more civilized time of NYC history. When gentleman had manners, broke the law, and drank in secret during the idiotic Prohibition years, while keeping it all hush-hush. Honor among thieves for sure.
