I usually go around 9:45 PM on weeknights or after 6pm on sunday for the "off-peak" hours on the driving range so it's rarely ever busy other than the odd dinner party getting out or party ship docking.

Pro-tip: If you buy the $100 driving range card (15% extra balls bonus) and go off-peak it's cheaper than the crappy driving range back in my hometown.

I blame the hipsters.

edit: oh gawd...I know exactly where that plant is. Its actually pretty futuristic looking and I rubberneck whenever I drive past the bridge going into Queens.






that plant also is on a "greenway" walk/bike path...

but then again considering the area... I still blame the hipsters for this...

Any suggestions for a good place to eat with young kids in the Meat Packing district?

sneaky2.gif Ed, that sounds like a trick question, but if you're talking about getting a snack/lunch go to the Chelsea Market (btwn 15th & 16th) on Ninth Ave. - lots of choices, many good, and it's a cool space. The downside is that it no longer the quiet backwater it once was BITD - depending on the time (& weather) it can be borderline unbearable. The Hog Pit was fun, but I'm pretty sure it closed...

I was given the name of Bills Burger and Bar or something, actually in the space that was the Hog Pit so I'll be going there.

Bills Burger is good. I was going to suggest it but wasn't sure you'd like a bar kind of place. They have a back room that will probably accommodate your needs.

i've noticed a LOT more taxis being pulled over by the fuzz in the past two weeks. I saw it twice on my way to lunch today.

Makes me happy.
post #1288 of 7136
That is indeed welcome.

I'm sure it'd be super awkward to be in the back of a cab that was pulled over though. Think the cop would let you get out and hail another cab?

Oh, I meant to write this yesterday.

Why does no one know how to drive on a highway/freeway in New York? You've had them since the Robert Moses era.

NYers seem to resent the idea that they should sort themselves by speed, slowest to the right, fastest to the left. Most such roads are three lanes and the slowest seem to be about 2/3s in the middle lane, 1/3 in the left lane. They can tie up traffic for miles and the bastards will not budge.

Also, and worse, NY drivers like to box you in as if a routine journey were a team Indy Car race. One in front, the other perfectly syched to one side. Sometimes three work in tandem. I gather you learned this from the mob? How to whack somebody without stopping your car?

Westchester drivers are like that.


I find that NJ drivers are the worst.
