  1. Hi all,


    So it's been quite some time. Just want to let you know I'm alive and doing well and no, I didn't get chased away from the forum or get disgusted by it what so ever.


    It's been a crazy year. I use to log on a lot because I worked in an office and I would just have the forum open on my computer and then when I got home, I'd check in as well. I haven't logged in for several reasons.



    I was working for a hospitality business that included event venues, restaurants, and hotels. Of course COVID took a big hit on it. I was laid off for a bit. Eventually when things started to open I was one of the first to be called back. My team was a fraction of what it use to be and I was asked to open up all most of the location by myself. I was working a lot and that was the last time I logged into the forum.



    I also realized that the industry I was in was probably not the best industry so I put my name out there and was recruited by a new company that specializes in biometric data and I took the job. Being a security company that holds sensitive data, I have to use a computer that is locked. While I can work around it, I decided to be the good company boy and not log in while working. Starting a new job and also learning new technology also means I'm just as busy as well.



    When working, we some times get so immersed in our works that we forget to look up. During my year sitting at home during lock down I realized that I was not as involved in my children's lives as I should be. So I no longer log in after work either. On weekends, I always try to do something with them.



    I also purchased a second home as an investment property. It's a multi-family home that I rent out. As a "slumlord", I had to also had to fix up the house so it would be fit for tenants, go through the renting process, and now do occassional maintenances there, etc.


    Anyway, hopefully everything should eventually start to settle down and I'll check in more often but the odds of me being as involved as I was before probably won't come soon.


    Oh, and apparently my login is all funky. Fortunately, I never logged out of TapaTalk so I can still check in every once in a while with it.

  2. My passwords aren’t working and the recover password feature isn’t working either. Luckily, I never logged off Tapatalk.

    You still have my number Tacks? Text me who and what I owe and I’ll square up.

    And I’m your 12th man fellas.

    Will get everyone up to date if I can ever log back into the forum from a computer. I’m not typing out some message on my phone.

    Every time I go to Arthur Ave (Bronx) I pass right by the Fordham Road White Castle. I am constantly drawn by the “crave” but fight the temptation since I’m usually heading for Full Moon pizza or Borgattis, etc.
    If I end up at the Bronx DMV (love that place!!!) I will hit The WC on Tremont.

    I've passed the White Castles at Fordham a bunch of times but only stopped in twice.  Both ended badly.  Yet, I'm tempted to stop in a third time.  Third times a charm?

    You know the upper west side well! Food sucks though. You know the East side has way better restaurants. Best Italian imho is Elios - 84th & 2nd. Carmines is family style & loud as hell. Prefer Benjamin’s for steak on 41st street & Madison.

    I've always lived in the west side of the Bronx off the 1 line or in Washington Heights/Inwood area most of my life so I prefer the west side due to convenience.  The city doesn't make going cross town easy with going above ground.  Benjamins is good.  They're a Peter Luger style steakhouse which is different from the regular steak houses and I actually prefer Benjamin's over Peter Lugers.

    Also, Churrascaria Plataforma is pretty good too for a different kind of steak house.  It's a Brazilian style steakhouse and it's all you can eat.  Their cheese stuffed bread is good too that it's dangerous because you will eat so much of the bread that you won't leave enough room for the different steaks that comes out dim sum style.  I once won a bet there that I couldn't keep my card on green for 20 straight minutes and my plate had to be clean before the next cart comes by during that span.

  5. Because there are so many good eats near the museum but the food in the museum sucks and is over priced.

    Good breakfast/brunch near the Museum.

    Sarabeth's (high end brunch place)


    Good Enough To Eat


    Pio Pio is a nice lunch/dinner spot but more for a group.  It's Peruvian food and the green sauce for the chicken is awesome.  Great sangria deals too.


    Dessert places, Insomnia Cookies is really good but Levain Bakery has the best chocolate chip cookies hands down bar none.  In.the.world.  People would line up on the street waiting for a bacth to come out and yes, it's best to be eaten still warm.  Both places are one block from the Musuem.

    Katz Deli for pastrami sandwich

    Johns on bleeker for pizza

    get a pretzel and hot dog from a vendor  

    Go to chinatown and haggle for some stuff  


    do the stuff that you cant do or get anywhere else  


    If it's a "dirty water" hotdog, it has to be SaBretts.  Look for that sign on the street vendors umbrella.  Must have the onions on them if you're a true New Yorker.

    Otherwise, go to Gray's Papaya on 72nd and Amsterdam and get the 2 dogs and a drink combo.  Make pina colada as the drink.  Very close to the Museum of Natural History so you can grab a quick bite before the Musuem and then save Carmines for after.  Nathan's is the last of the 3 hot dog triumphant of New York but it's all the way deep in Brooklyn.

    Museum of Natural History is between 77th and 81st.  Carmine's is on 92nd.  Not too bad of a walk.


    While in Chinatown, get an order of roasted duck.  The ones hanging on the windows.  They're awesome.  You can get them from where ever.  I usually get them from Noodle Town on the corner of Bayard and Bowery.
