New York City
So nice they named it twice. So big it needs it's own thread.
Home of the Big Gig, The Ear Inn, Nathan's Famous, Yankee Stadium and countless potholes and manhole covers.
High & Dry
Goodness... The cheese factor in that video is about 550%
Prefab Sprout used to be one of the best, most innovative bands of the 80s...
BMW of Manhattan, everybody's favorite dealership. Just ask Bubba, Orlando and Snoone to chime in with their tales from the crypt.
As soon as I open my mouth about that lovely place this thread would end up in the doghouse.... I'll tell you this, I live over 2 hrs from Max's and that's where my bike is now getting almost $3,000 worth of work done... BMW of Manhattan has allowed that to happen right under the nose of corporate headquarters. They could care less about the perception that their flagship dealership is wholly incompetent in every aspect of their business...

I'll be in The City this Sunday for a once-a-year holiday concert. We start with brunch at the Delta Grill on 48th and 9th; blackened catfish and a bloody mary with live music. It's a Cajun place and you could try alligator here if you want, but the gumbo and jamulaya are also good.
Then off to Lincoln Center where the Canadian Brass do their holiday concert. They hook up with the brass section of the NY Philharmonic for a variety of types of music - Carols, classical, even some Klezmer.
Finally, on the way back to the train station, a stop-off at Pigale, a French restaurant at 48th and 8th, for Leffe brune on tap and mussels.
A perfect day in the city.

Enjoy! Should be nice and chilly this weekend (it's currently in the 60s! Go figure).
Actually you should get started.
