So instead of doing a bunch of different reviews, I’ve lumped together a few places I’ve visited in NYC.
Dallas BBQ’s – mmmm mmmm, love their wings! I make it a point to eat at BBQ’s every time I’m back in NY. I took this place for granted while living there. There are none in PA and now, I miss this place. Good cheap food and drinks. This is a place where you can just go and kick it with some friends and pig out. No need to get cute.

Club H20 (24th Street btwn 5th and 6th Avenue) – So, I went here on a Friday. Good mix of music with various DJ’s – I personally feel any place that plays “dollar wine” is good times all the way. Very NYC in that they held the line (why do places do this?) and the drinks were way too expensive (paid $5 for water and not fancy water, Poland Spring). The ambiance was nice also. There’s just one floor and one bar, a lot of tables and what appeared to be some kinda VIP area behind curtains. It wasn’t overly crowded unless you were on the dance floor. Biggest turn-off: No toilet paper in the bathroom!!! Not even a square to spare. I’d recommend this place on a Friday for people that wanna dance except ladies BYOTP – bring your own toilet paper, yuck! They eventually put more paper in there but c’mon now – that’s NOT a good look. I say recommend on a Friday because one of my friends went the following night (Saturday) and didn’t have a good time. Cost: $20.
Caroline’s Comedy Club – I can’t believe I’d never been here before in all my years of NY living. The name speaks for itself, it’s a comedy club and a very famous one at that. Many of the big names come back here. This is where a lot of the major players got their start. I saw Paul Mooney. His show was looong. He was aight. Not knee-slapping, tearing up funny all the way through. After a while my friend and were kinda like, when is this going to be over? His show reminded me of that old man that just loves to tell stories – he got a million of them.
Apparently I am the only person that feels that this dude was wrong. I have a problem with people from other countires disrespecting MY d@mn president like this. Only WE can do that. I can say that I was proud of the way the president avoided that shoe on some bob and weave like he was on the basketball court. End Aside.
