Culinary capers in the core of the Big Apple - Part II

This is the second part of my recent culinary adventures in New York City. You read last week that I was there for a continuing education program on tax education. I brought my lovely wife Georgia, AKA G, and our two eldest granddaughters.

The taxi business thrives in the Big Apple

“Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.” — Voltaire

NEW YORK UNIVERSITY HAS A REPUTATION as one of the premier institutions for graduate tax education, next to the University of Denver of course, in the nation. So when I received the summer program for continuing education, I was anxious to return to New York for that, and perhaps a meal or two or ten. I decided to take G along. And of course G invited two guests. After all, we’ve only been four times in the past three years, and there are restaurants to try that we haven’t been to.

“The reason fat people are happy is that the nerves are well protected.” — Luciano Pavarotti

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, I left a restaurant out of my column that should have been included. Of course it had to be the Big One, my annual Welcome Back Legislators double whopper. I thought I made a mistake once before, but I was mistaken.

A fat man's prayer

By Victor Buono

Lord, my soul is ripped with riot,
Incited by my wicked diet.
“We are what we eat!” said a wise old man;
And Lord, if that’s true, I’m a garbage can.

Stuff - And lotsa of it

“The egg cream is psychologically the opposite of circumcision — it pleasurably reaffirms your Jewishness.”Mel Brooks

IT’S BEEN SOMEWHILE SINCE I WROTE A COLUMN ON “STUFF”, or potpourri or whatever you wish to call it. I call it ramblings, cuz that’s what it really is. There are facts, comments, observations and stuff. It’s also been a while since I’ve done some bashin’, so today’s a good day for that too.
