Yeah I loaded up on martinis and bought some - they weren't even that fresh tasting (i was supposed to wear them in my lapel or something. i'm not getting fucking soil on my jacket, no sir).

I'm not a joiner but I'm constantly getting asked to join.

One was a hispanic guy who said he needed bus money to get to where his friend was going to pick him up. One was a guy allegedly from an organization called helping hands or blessing hands or something that offered people sandwiches and juices if they were hungry. you could have it for free if you really needed it, but if you could afford to pay he was accepting donations.

so apparently my girl got hit up by the same couple at port authority. it's a blond lady and a brown haired dude both caucasian, with a red stroller luggage, and they told the same story and asked for the same $17

yeah. I figured as much. Nobody carries $17, so it is an easy $20 score for them.

I finally have something to contribute to this thread and I think it deserves to go to the top of the list....

Yeah, it really does make me mad because I like his films, but he's a huge racist douchebag.

He's such little bitch. I love his movies. Bottom line is rather then make his area nicer he moved out of BK cause his wife wanted to live in Manhattan. Then when the young (and white) moved in he starts bitching. He's a fucking hypocrite.

Core Club seems pretty damn nouveau riche from when I've been.

My friend recommended going to Momofuku tonight. Not really interested/don't care for David Chang. Is there perhaps a different noodle place I can suggest?

Ippudo.

Ippudo West usually has a shorter wait time than the original location. Totto now has a slightly shorter wait time as a result of Ippudo West moving into their turf.

i actually prefer Momofuku over Ippudo, but overall wouldn't bother with either unless somebody was bothering me to tag along.
