    Default New York, New York

    The New York planning meeting on Saturday was a great success. Thanks for all the hints n tips, particularly BGG , the idea of the laughter police in restaurants left everyone gobsmacked.
    I was making the cocktails for the girlies, Manhattens, JD mixers and chocolate mountains, and supplying them with bagels and hot dogs, and I was wearing a dicky bow. After an hour or so I took the dicky bow off and wrapped two feet of black ribbon around my neck.
    All the girlies were very impressed that I knew how to tie up a dickie bow properly till the missus found my 'dickie bow on elastic' and chucked it on the table

    Here's some restaurant tips for ya (Some of my favourites):

    Best steak in NYC (Possibly the world): Smith and Wollenskys. Book ahead.

    Best Mexican - Dos Caminos on Houston - they make fantastic Margaritas!

    Cool cheap eats - Cubana Cafe on Thomason, got to get the corn - one of the best snacks you will ever eat!

    Best fusion/cool crowd - Sushi Samba on Av 7 (Brazilian/Sushi fusion, better book ahead).

    Simply Amazing food - Spce Market in the meat packing district, book ahead.

    Bars - oldest in new york, still serve beer in two flavours in their own measure - McSorleys, well worth a visit.

    Anything in East Village is good usually (Edgier kind of area).

    Bars in Soho - where I lived. Merc bar is good, Sway Lounge, The Anchor)
    Off to a meeting, I'll think of more.
    Hang on - there is actually a place called Cheddar?? - cailin maith

    Any forum is a collection of assorted weirdos, cranks and pervs - Board Game Geek

    That will be a simply fab time to catch up for a beer. - Tay

    Have you ever seen somebody lick the chutney spoon in an Indian Restaurant and put it back ? - Cyberghoul
