Reasons why New York Sucks - Page 98

WF, overall, is a little meh for fish. And a lot of meh for shellfish that isn't shrimp. I find their meats are excellent and much more diverse than Fairway.

Citarella for meat and fish is far superior to both WF and Fairway. Produce gets the nod for WF. Olive bar gets the nod at Fairway.




I've seen some whole fish at Fairway that look way beyond death. I'll get a picture of this too.

Which neighborhood?

Clinton Hill. I love it here. I'm hoping to find a place close by.

I once got shushed by a bartender at Stonehome in Fort Greene because I got too boisterous in backing up my drunken assertion that if I were to have a son, Diomedes would be a fine name for him.

Just to clarify: NY sucks because you got boisterous or because you got shushed?

i believe this thread title should be changed to things that suck about NY. It'd be much more reflective of the content.

I thought getting shushed was lame, although I confess I can get rather obnoxiously loud after a few drinks.

I actually like the fish counter at the Fairway in Red Hook. Whole Foods is pretty damn expensive, and for the same price and quality, I'd rather go to my local fish monger or Union Market.

no.

For instance, it's four days from the official start of spring and it's still freezing.

THIS.

Holy Hell I hate St Patricks day, especially when you have to deal with all the drunk B&T assholes in Midtown. Thank God it's on a weekend this year so we can avoid them.

the fact that st. patricks day coincides with the NYC half marathon (which I'm running) will probably suck this year.

the boston marathon is basically an excuse to drink for people in Massachusetts (because its coincides with patriot day).. this seems like the ultimate in morning/day drinking debauchery synergy.
