why did i drink so much crab juice?

If something important has happened to you in the last week and (by any chance) you're wondering why I haven't had the consideration to comment, it's because I was in New York. Yes, [personal profile] glockgal was headed out there to do her Racebending thing and wistfully mentioned that I should come too, and I checked my accounts and took a deep breath and bought a ticket. Because wow was I ever feeling like I needed to get out of this burg and away from everything for a bit!

Anyhow, we kept it on the down-low from friends and family because there was more than enough to fill up our brief time there (and especially with cathybites and celestialsoda, one of whom I've known forever and one of whom I just met for reals and whom I both adore). Back home now and tired but happy, too much to face scrolling back and back through the ol' friendslist, heh.

Things wot I was able to try finally:
- new york cheesecake
- chocolate egg cream
- new york pizza
- cannoli
- half-sour pickles
- new york bagels
- challah french toast
- corned beef hash (w/real corned beef)
- coffee from a bag (er, the coffee itself wasn't exactly new, but the experience of having my coffee cup placed in a brown paper bag was! in vancouver they just hand you the cup; a paper bag is not even an option)

We didn't manage to acquire celery tonic (being too tired and rushed to actually *eat* at Katz's), and I was too discombobulated to buy a cubano from the sandwich place, and I forgot about tostones and kugel and ssam altogether, but oh well. Next time.

Hope it's been a decent week for y'all! Apologies if I've missed anything very important.

That sounds really awesome! I have never eaten any of those things. Doesn't the coffee fall over in the brown paper bag? Is is a special New York bag?

Also I guess the only thing relevant to your possible interests is this Star Trek bridge crew as cats (http://community.livejournal.com/ontd_startrek/1247226.html) post I made?

Oh, man, that trip sounds delicious. Considering all of my travels always seem to revolve around eating lots of food, I highly approve of your summary :) I definitely need to go back to New York one of these days. I never tried the bagels or the cheesecake when I was there and I've regretted it ever since. Oh, and I want the famous subway pretzels.

I did nothing all week except I wrote some Jonny Lang/Zachary Quinto porn, which needless to say, no one needs to read ever. Plus, me writing porn? WTF?

*envy*!!
I'm trying to put together a trip to NYC later this year!

I have a bunch of restaurants I feel I have to visit and some vintage consignment shops and a few other things but having been freshly there, what would you recommend?!

\o/! I'm glad you had a good trip! Also, if you are ever hereabouts in future, poke me and I will share my Epic Food List with you. (It's really really long, and also mostly cheap!)

new york! new york! A. and i wanted to go there at some point, due to some strange obsession we had with some silly little band? i have no idea what we were thinking, but personally i'd go there for the cheesecake itself. surely it tastes better there than anywhere else, right?

glad you had a good time! might there be pictures?

!!

I was in NYC too last weekend, and also kept it on the down low because I was visiting my brother and stuff.

The coffee cups in a bag situation ALWAYS confuses me. I'm baffled how people don't spill everywhere.

Next time I also need to eat shit tons of dumplings in Chinatown.
