That Trip To NYC | Donger Need Food

Last month the wife and I drove up to New York City to walk around and eat. Its not often we get to travel with out the pixie. That means several things. I can use profanity, I can day drink, I can stay up late and go out, I can sleep in.

We are going to start up a business where people pay my wife (hey you perv, get your mind out of the gutter)  to suggest where to eat in certain cities. I came up with that after she took me around NYC with a list of places to eat. 100% of her spots were amazing.

Here are the pictures from our trip:

Always enjoyed the rock structures in Jersey before we cross the river. 

 First look at the new Freedom building.
 The boss on the ferry. We parked at my cousin's and took the boat over. Only fish I saw was a Coney Island White Fish.
 Walked past this place. Meatballs on top of your Christmas Tree!
 My first trip into Central Park. Bumped into this guy fly fishing. I got a few casts in. Lots of bluegill.

 The boss.
 This guy was displaying some fantastic raunchy porno spreads.
 Me casting.
 After a few drinks the wife decided to play hide and seek in the hotel.
 Our first eat was at Halal Guys. Then off to the slurp shop.

 Ramen. this stuff is legit.
 A lady in a horse head buying a falafel. Cus why not.
 Then desert at a David Chang place. I was not impressed.
 I love the old architecture of the city.
 Post dinner slice.
 Cool ovens and fridge.
 The wife had to eat here. I passed. I don't do sweets at breakfast.

 Off to the High Line. This place was awesome. So tacticle and visual. Every grass had a different hue and feel. Look for this show
 This section was my favorite.
 Trees through the rail tracks. Red berries if you can't see the color red.
 These lounges are on the tracks and can be moved back and forth.
 Asteracae in bloom and at seed. Every plant is in a specific place for a specific reason for their color, height, seed, berry, etc. It really is artwork.
 Fall crocus. Didn't know it existed.

 Hey now.

 "Two Weeks"
 Blueprints and bulbs.
 Always glad to have a camera to capture moments like this.

 Always get excited for Equisetum

 First beer of the day at the Corner Bistro.
 These were about 90% vodka then some tomato juice.
 Robert DiNero and Anthony Hopkins trailers for a movie.
 Blind Tiger ran out of TP. This stuff only happens to me you see. I sat there on the terlet and texted and called the boss. She didn't pick up. Then I called the bar 3 times and it was busy. Then I got through. The bar tender handed me a stack of tiny 4"x4" cocktail napkins. Then the wife noticed I was gone. She thought I was trapped. Then I hear someone else say 'is he trapped' then another person. It was starting to draw attention. Sigh.
 Craft beer.
 I sat next to an amateur photographer from Portland. We had a lot to talk about.

 I always visit the west Village when in NYC. My parents lived there in the 60's and I consider it part of my family's neighborhood. I was threatened and kicked out of  John's Pizza on Bleaker when I was a kid. I was all decked out in Red Sox swag. They did not approve.
 Then off to Buvette. Damn. I mean seriously. I could have spent the entire day there.

 My neighbors and a pheasant.
 I only do pate when I have wine. This was brilliant.
 Salad nicoise. I grew up eating this.
 They have this at Whole Foods. Buy it.

 Then we walked around the city. This TV show was being taped live. I made goofy faces at them.
 Then off to this noodle joint.
 This was spicy. This guy does not like his chicken this spicy. Glad there was a napkin dispenser in front of me. I was schvitzing gallons. It was terrible fun. This must be the same fun one get from having a chick beat them with a whip.
 Too much cumin for me in this lamb burger.

 View from hotel.
 I had to get a falafel.

 Remember that I just ate dinner? There is always room for falafel.

Walked by Philippe's poster. That was funny.

What a selection of bourbon.
 Wanted to steal it.
 Picking up order for my dad.

Back to Jersey. They know how to make a sandwich in Jersey.

 I was pleased.
 Water on the way back. Never seen anyone fish these tidal salt ponds. Why?
