#779: Queens International Night Market

The concept?  A night market like those often held in other countries, or like the ones we have in NYC during the day but at night.

Good.

The execution? Read the rest of this entry »

#774: Eat a Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco

I used to think I would like anything with Cool Ranch Doritos.  I thought this having not previously eaten anything besides good old plain Cool Ranch Doritos.  But I love Cool Ranch Doritos so much I felt like I could know this with authority.

So when Taco Bell first came out with the Cool Ranch Doritos Loco Taco, I knew it was something I would love.  Despite not having had a taco from Taco Bell in at least 15 years, it was just something indisputable, like that chocolate is good, or puppies are cute.  I would like this taco.

However, while it was inevitable that I would one day try it, for some reason, I just never did.

#758: Queens Brewers Night

Queens may be the #1 place to visit in 2015, but I’m glad that so far, it doesn’t seem like Manhattanites are buying it.

#754: [sek’ənd sun]

If anyone would appreciate a restaurant’s name being written as it’s pronounced, like in a dictionary, I would.  But come on, a schwa? You’re trying too hard.

Of course, that can all be forgiven if the bar/restaurant is as good as it seems from the menu, happy hour (even on a Saturday!), and photogenic light-up “Queens” sign in the small back garden.

I’m not sure if it is. Read the rest of this entry »

#748: The Creek and the Cave

Unlike with most comedy experiences, I expected the one last night to be funny, since the comedian was someone with a fair amount of street cred–or whatever you get after being on SNL for 5 years.

And Colin Quinn did not disappoint. Read the rest of this entry »

#747: Brik

If you try to be something for everyone, you’ll probably become nothing to anyone.

I don’t know if that’s a well-accepted concept or one I just made up, but I do know it’s beautifully exhibited by Brik.

Touting itself as a sports bar, it’s lined with TVs and ready with beer specials during the games.

And yet, we could barely hear the game last night because in addition to the televisions’ sound, the speakers were also blasting out loud club music.
