Welcome to 2008!
I’d just like to officially be the last person to wish you Happy New Year. Did you have fun? What did you do? I went to some strange loft party in Bushwick, Brooklyn where they made a giant cardboard castle (not as cool as it sounds) and the DJ was so fucked up on blow that he kept skipping songs halfway through. I tried to incite a riot when he cut a Smokey Robinson song short, but I was pacified by calming words and a 40oz bottle of St. Ides.
Now I’m sitting in my underwear on the living-room floor hung over from yet another night out on the town…my girlfriend’s holiday work party. Going to a function with an open bar usually sounds like a great idea but always ends with spending the next morning moaning about how stupid I was for drinking so much. I never learn my lesson….
But hey I did find something great that I’d like to share with you; it’s called Yonah Schimmel’s Knishes and it’s at 137 E Houston @ Forsyth in the Lower East Side. For a measly $3 you can get a gigantic knish that will just about fill you up. I think knish actually translates to “The best $3 I’ve ever spent”. Here’s a photo of the one I ate; it lives in my belly now…for the time being
