New York, New York - Part 1

December 8, 2004

Oh man! It's the 8th of December and I haven't updated yet this month? How the heck am I going to make my goal of 100 blogs by the end of the year? Oh well... the reason I haven't updated is because I spent the weekend in New York City. It was my very first visit, and let me tell you, it was a TRIP!

Here are some of the places I visited while I was in the city:

McSorley's Old Ale House

You walk in. You get two choices: Dark or Light. The drink of choice? Good old-fashioned ale. Hardcore. The place was PACKED to the brims, Henry Houdini's handcuffs were attached to the bottom of the bar in front of me. Rumor has it that Abraham Lincoln downed a few way back in the 1800's. The beers are served two at a time and you can hardly hear yourself think over the roar of noisy revelers. An amazing place!

JAS Mart

Strangely enough, my favorite location through my travels was a small little Japanese grocery store in the East Village. I was psyched to find packs of Nori (the outer wraps in sushi rolls) for $1.50 for 10 sheets. That beats the best price I've found in Greensburg of $6 for the same amount. Kickass! Anyone want to come over for sushi? Speaking of sushi...

Susha Samba

I didn't actually eat at Sushi Samba but I did burst into tears there. Sweet! (don't ask, it's a long horrible story)

Sushi Mambo

We did actually eat dinner at Sushi Mambo and the food was AMAZING! We had edamame (soy beans) and miso soup for an appetizer. I ordered the Spicy Combination which was, I believe, spicy tuna, salmon, and yellowtail. Delicish!!

I'm so jealous. I haven't been to NY in about 5 or 6 years. Last time I went my friends and I didn't even make it a mile outside of Penn Station because of all the shopping we did.

I also miss the hell outta sushi. Good for you for having some. Remember me the next time you bite into a roll.

I envy you Moira! I haven't had good sushi in what seems like forever. NY may not be Europe, but, it's better than good 'ol Greensburg!

NY was amazing. One day I will tell the story of my horrible first night that almost made me hate New York City. Luckily, the next two days were so amazing that I decided to give the city a fair try. It's not NYC that I hate but happy hour(s). God, I LOVE sushi! I'm going to do a post just about sushi ;c)

Sandy - It was great to finally meet you! I did have a fabulous time and I've been meaning to email you to thank you for planning out a great evening! I wish we would have had more time to get to know each other! If you are every in Greensburg, doll, my place is your place! ;c) And thanks for the offer on the sushi wraps! I'll probably take you up on that considering that since I've been back all I have eaten are poorly rolled sushi rolls. ;c) Thanks again!!!!
