    I figured there was. I grew up on the east coast of Canada and wasn't sure what the beaches looked like in N.Y.

    I thought the LCBO really upped their game with micro brews. Has anyone brought back the stubby?

    Thank your stars you don't have to deal with the coupon books from the days when the LCBO was patterned after Consumer's Distributing.

    The LCBO and Brewer's Retail really sucked if you lived in a tiny town. Odds were 50/50 that when you walked in one of the workers would know you. Hard to buy underage booze when that happens.

    Beaches in NY blow compared to California.

    Also, it's a myth that there are beautiful women everywhere here. Actually most of them are hard-bitten hags. Over-made up, leathery tans, gaudy clothes. I've always been partial to hippie chicks but last week, the three UCSC grad students cleaning dolphin urine and seal poop at the Long Marine Lab were prettier than all the Manhattan career wenches I saw today.

    You need to spend more time downtown. There isn't a good looking person north of 23rd street

    Brooklyn and LES aren't all that attractive either. Even when I loved going to NYC and was single I was blown away by what passed for desirable there. Can't say I've shared Manton's experience of beautiful women north of Santa Barbara however.

    At lunch I saw about a half dozen women who were so attractive that it ruined my whole day.

    at least reserve that judgment for after you go to a NY beach.

    +1.

    though I'd expand it a bit to say "you need to spend more time between Chambers St. and 23rd St"

    The Atlantic ocean coast is surprisingly nice actually given the proximity to NYC. Pain to get to (getting back to why NY's transpo infrastructure sucks) but it is lovely when you get there.

    Jones Beach is the best in the nation for used condoms and heroin needles.

    Ocean Beach in SF which is sunny about 1% of the year is nicer than any beach around here. Seabright is the best beach in the US.
