(not so) Picky Eating, Evil Kitsch (Junk We Love)

Let’s talk about “Energy Drinks!” Before there was Red Bull, Full Throttle, and even Jolt Cola, there was COKE! The line between thirst satisfying beverage and stimulant addiction had been blurred long ago. I’ve always known that sugar is a drug, and that many of us are addicted to it.

It’s hot out there right? I wish I could say it was SUPER HOT inside the box of Hot Tamales I just bought. I LOVE Hot Tamales and was super looking forward to it when I picked it up this box. I think I got a stale batch, maybe? Cool box though.

Okay, so it’s more of a six degrees type of connection to E.T. (as the alien prank caller preferred the Pieces” version of Reese’s)but whatever. Elvis was famous for his love of penut butter and banana sandwiches and so his estate got together with Hershey to create the limited/collectors edition Peanut Butter Cups. While I […]

(not so) Picky Eating, About Last Night (Kiss & Tell), GOING OUT, Out Of Town!

If you want to talk about ironic, how about a city based on the idea of getting away from the “polluted” (meaning air quality and people of color) and crowded cites of the east ending up one of the most “polluted” city in the country? I’m talking about Riverside, California, where people came […]

And if you’re going to San Francisco, forget the flowers but be sure to stop by Rotee for some Indian/Pakistani grub.

It was a different world when Mr. Karcher opened up some hot dog stands back in 1941. Los Angeles was brewing with action, car culture was about to take over,and he would beat the McDonald brothers to the punch by a couple of years. Carl’s is no McDonald’s as far as volume goes, but combined […]

Leimert Park is famous and notorious for two entirely different scenes. The first is the vibrant African American community that surrounds the park with jazz clubs, dance studios, arts & crafts boutiques, and everything else that has prompted declarations of a “Black Renaissance.” The other is an association with a much more gruesome crime scene, […]

When we lived in SoHo I would made a routine of walking up Sullivan Street to Jamaican Flavors (240 Sullivan St., 212-254-3856). In the heart of the Village, the place gets really busy around lunch time, but if you show up too late they can run out of stuff and just close down. Getting delivery […]

It’s 2008 and things are already going great, and it has everything to do with my stop at Gray’s Papaya! Since 1972 Nicolas A.B. Gray has been feeding New Yorkers some of the yummiest hot dogs known to man. Now I’m not hear to tell you they’re healthier or better quality than Hebrew National or […]
