On a hot afternoon, swing by here and grab some delicious Mikes Ice cream. They have a fun variety of flavors... may I suggest coffee and red velvet cake! Super rich and creamy! Small cups start at $3.50
This cute little coffee shop also offers some local art to enjoy while waiting line, and if you like it, at home. It's right next to Mitchell Delicatessen and within walking distance of a few other cool vintage/artsy shops.

I am always on the prowl for great chinese food. Thanks for the tip!
I find it interesting that these guys are ok with protesting this way, although I also understand. I would assume that a lot of vegans, though not all, probably support abortion. Why is she bringing up abortion, you ask, keep reading please. I come to this assumption from A) knowing a lot of vegans throughout my life, and discussing a variety of topics, and B) a lot of vegans, again not all, are "forward thinking"' which usually means they support abortion. I bring this up, because most pro-life rally's use these same tactics (lare graphic images and protesting), and I have heard many people scoff, in disgust, at the tactics that pro-lifers use to plead their case against abortion, many in the "forward thinking" camp. So, how is this different?
I understand that vegans /animal rights activists really believe that eating meat (or raising animals inhumanely) is morally wrong. If they really feel that way, it comes as no surprise to me, that they would protest in the most graphic way possible, and I applaud them for standing up in what they believe in. I would hope that they, in turn, would respect what pro-lifers are trying to do.
I know abortion is a touchy subject, and again, I'm not trying to start an abortion debate. This is just about the way people protest things. I do not want to offend!
Oh how I wish I could afford that ticket. It sounds like an amazing one!
I think these polls are silly, but interesting. First of all, there are a lot of variables they don't take into account, i.e. economic status, gender, age, place living now, the way/place someone was raised, and most important, personal tastes. Second, it is a small group of people they poll, so it really isn't a true representation of either side. I didn't get a phone call or survey in the mail. I would assume that most people dont fall exactly in line with their political party when it comes to taste. Third, they left Liberatarians out altogether. Do they not count/deserve to be included in this poll?That said...
I like donuts, bagels and croissants, depending on what mood I'm in. I love Chick-fil-A because it's delicious; Oh, how I love those chicken biscuits and waffle fries. I don't care for KFC, but will eat there if I need to. I have no problem with vegans. We are all people who can hold our own opinions on how to live, as long as it doesnt hinder someone else's life (i.e. murder, rape, theft, etc.). I don't like diet soda! I don't really like soda, but if I'm gonna drink one, it's gonna be the real thing. I hate fake sugar. If you don't want the extra calories, don't drink soda. Olive Garden is not real Italian food; To be fair, most Italian food here in the states is not real Italian food. I was lucky enough to be exposed to a wide variety of foods throughtout my life, and to travel the globe. A lot of people don't get that chance, so for them, Olive Garden is something different and exciting. More power to them!
So that's me in a nutshell... I like all nuts too, well not walnuts... well maybe, sometimes.
Don't get me wrong, I love NYC. It's a unique city loaded with driven talented individuals, who create an amazing culture. But lets face it, New Yorkers live in a bubble and sometimes they forget about the rest of us. Hello New York, the thousands of other cities in the other 49 states, the ones in the south included, also have raw talent. We non New Yorkers, know how to cook, make art and music, etc. I think it's curious that people feel, you haven't made it unless you live in the big apple. Not true. So I'm glad to see that the honors have been more evenly distributed.
Now, I want to add, that I am not for equal opportunity awards, especially of the James Beard variety. If, truly, the only restaurants that deserve these coveted awards are in New York, then so be it. But, come on, that just can't be true. Maybe the judges decided to look beyond New York to find great talent among the rest of us. Although, on the other hand, our society more and more, wants to hand out "participation awards" to make everyone feel special, and that dilutes the whole point of an award of excellence. So, I hope it's the former, otherwise, down the hole goes the reputation of James Beard.
I used to work at Trader Joes and I hated shopping at Kroger or Safeway. I could almost always find the same products at TJ's (especially cheese and olive oil) for a few dollars less. To be fair, I think most other grocery stores "store brand" items are the same thing; name brand items marked down in price because you don't know the name brand. The psychology behind this is so interesting to me. Some people swore they liked the name brand over the Trader Joe's brand, even though it was the exact same product. Trader Joe's is a great store and they have a lot of amazing food! I highly recommend making the drive into green hills every once in awhile.
hahaha... great review! it sounds like it was an experience, to say the least.
