Come to think of it, why are court sketch artists even employed?

i saw one in seoul too.

I stop by every so often to grab their smaller triple choc doughnut since the Chelsea spot isn't too far from me. I don't even know how much they cost, I just get it and have them swipe my card. So irresponsible...

Made it down to their original location one time like 5 years ago. I remember thinking "this trip was not worth it for some doughnuts."

I did this thing with a bunch of people last night that was pretty fun. They lock you in a room full of clues and riddles and such and you need to find the clues and break the riddles in order to escape. It sounds nuts, but it was a really good time. It was the "intro" course, but it only had a 20% success rate. Naturally my group was able to solve it.

Naturally....

That sounds super fun.

 

I think I've hit my limit with eating out on NY due to noise. Yesterday at brunch I could hear the conversation at each surrounding table and a few past those. Add to that the clash of the service bouncing off the walls and I was ready to scream though I doubt anyone could hear me. 

 

Does zagats have a sound rating?

My wife did one of those a few months back and really enjoyed it as well.

you will find it only gets worse, and you will get increasingly sensitive to it. each time you are subjected to it you will wonder why on earth you thought that this might possibly be an enjoyable experience. you will grow to dread the thought of going to a new "hot" spot. you will find that a quiet atmosphere more than compensates for minor culinary blips or snafus. you'll come to view a good, serene restaurant as a true oasis, and will return again and again. AND you will dread the day that one of your 'finds' gets a raving positive review and the descending hoards drive you away

as for zagat - see the section called 'senior appeal'

Drunk maybe….

Amazing that people actually argue it to be a lesser crime if they are only ripping off rich people.

Pretty sure I'm doing this on Friday.

I don't know what it is here. An equivalent restaurant in Paris is a pleasurable experience where everyone speaks with their inside voices. 

 

Dear NYers ... shut the fuck up.

 

love,
