Doc Holliday’s: Small Town Bar in the Big City

Doc Holliday’s gives me the impression that some rich schmuck got bored and decided to helicopter in a small Midwestern bar into Manhattan’s Lower East Side neighborhood. It might have something to do with the old school country music and classic rock springing from the speakers. Maybe it was the

Kate’s Joint, Vegetarian for the Meat-Minded

I’m not proud, but I experimented with some crazy-ass stuff in college; the #1 most insane being vegetarianism. Fortunately, it only lasted about 4 days and then I quickly made up for lost protein with a turkey/chicken/ham sandwich. Yes, I admit I love a good veggie burger but being a

Snack Dragon, Your Taco-Wielding Angel

During a recent almost week-long disappearance of the Endless Summer taco truck on Bedford, Brooklynites were outraged at being forced into unthinkable alternatives like “cooking at home” and “eating not-burritos.” It was a dark time, but one that may strike again. It’s up to you to choose to be a

Organic Soul Cafe at Sixth Street Community Center

In New York, it seems there are at least 20 new restaurants that open each week. It’s always been one of the most thriving industries of this city. Recession, smeshion, it’s not going to stop us from gobbling up pork belly and glorified pizza. And while I love to eat

Schnitzel Sundays and Open House New York

Ah yes October, home to two of my favorite holidays: Halloween and Oktoberfest. Oktoberfest is like St.Patrick’s Day, it’s all about boozing and celebrating your “heritage” but with way better beer and no lame ass food coloring. I’ve heard many tales of those who have actually attended the real deal
