I've been actively complaining IRL and on twitter, don't worry.

If you want to save yourself some cash get ahold of a 9-10 ft soft top and and just teach yourself to stand up before you start paying for lessons.Every thing is on youtube. If you already surf and are looking to advance your skills well never mind

See, I'd normally take this exact approach, but a 2 hour lesson + all equipment included is only about $100 or so (would be a group thing, I already have a group, etc). It's just to get started with the 101 and be lucky if i could travel 5 feet upright. I do not surf but would like something physical that is more fun than cycling.

Need recommendation for Thai in Union Square area? Vegetarian would do as well.

Laut is good for Thai/Asian

ABC Kitchen good for vegetarian. Aldea is good for pescatarian.

Thanks. The vegetarian I'm taking out just wrote me to say, "that restaurant, Sylvia's, looks like it has some vegetarian dishes."

 

Yes, if you don't mind vegetables rolled in butter and pork fat then deep fried in buttered pork fat.

Nix sounds like a good vegetarian place near Union Square but I haven't been. I do have reservations there in a couple weeks.

Maybe Republic if you guys are into noodles? Not really Thai, but I wouild say Pan Asian. A bit noisy though, but I like noodles and their broths.

I think the Spicy Beef was my go to.
post #11322 of 11479

Nix was my first thought, but couldn't get the last minute reservation. Republic was good 15 years ago when it was novel. Now, not so much.

 

Screw it, I'm going to take her to Sylvia's and let her try and find something to eat.

 

Thanks.

Try Uncle Boons.  I want to know if it's any good, never been myself. I know it's not really Union Square 

post #11325 of 11479

That was my wife's recommendation. Will check it out soon.

 

I talked her out of Sylvia's and into Ethiopian. It should be a quick meal. (Name that movie.)
