Alta/Snowbird are good for decent skiers with decent cheap on mountain hotels where drinking is par for the course. Co is generally more expensive. Jackson Hole, if you can find a cheap ticket, is incredible.

Some parts suffer from not enough interconnects between different lines, forcing you to take long subway trips to get from point A to point B, which are located very close...
go to Bar Pitti or Pepolino.
Quote: Originally Posted by Milpool I saw a mention about more protein than rice and beans. My serving of rice and beans for 30 to 35 cents has about 18 grams of protein.

So I guess if we really want to figure out how cheap food is, we need to break it down to cost per...
Yes, nice place. Across from Lincoln Center, more Upper West Side than Times Square. Ed's Chowder House, the in-house restaurant, is pretty good, although not really worth what they charge. Nice bar. Good subway access at 66th and Broadway. The Metropolitan Opera is performing La Traviatta and the Philharmonic should have a new years eve performance as well. Bar Boloud is close by and great for drinks and charcuterie. Grey's Papaya is five minutes away and worth...
buy cheap. this isn't the time to spend a ton of money and be concerned about where your jacket is, whether you should wear it out in bush, or anything of the sort. NorthFace and Patagonia both make sub-$100 waterproof shells.
ride the bicycles that are parked outside of every metro station; try and have lunch at Cafe des Musee..
The prime beef used in restaurants that even use prime is solidly below that which used to be graded as prime. The number of steakhouses nationwide claiming to use prime, and their need to be able to consistently source beef, has driven the degradation of the USDA prime designation. Cows just don't produce enough truly prime beef to satisfy the demand. Beyond that, I prefer my beef to be dry aged. Wet aged beef makes me sad. It has none of the mineral taste of well...
Patagonia merino wool baselayer items (both long underwear and top in either turtleneck or mock-zip). Patagonia wool socks. Mid-layer fleece top, generally as tight as possible and with a zipper. Then a light outer layer for waterproofness and windproofness. The point is that you want the wool, which wicks away moisture, as close and tight to your body as possible. It'll keep you warm even when it gets wet, and it will pass the moisture to the fleece, which will...
Ssam has the Milk Bar, right next door (between 2nd and 3rd Avenue). It's where you'll wait for your table if you go near prime time. They serve the buns there. Walk in, wait three minutes on line, and order two buns. Enjoy them, then leave. That's pretty much the highlight of a meal at Ssam, although their fish and crudo dishes are pretty good, and the rice noodles with kimchee and sausage (Asian Bolognese sauce) will blow you away. If you eat a full meal here...
