Citi Field, May 24-25, 2014 & April 19-21, 2014

Yup – that’s how far back this goes. I like to go in order. Did I mention that I plan on going to more baseball games this season? David Wright’s first at-bat of the May 24, 2014 game. Cheese’s brisket sandwich from Blue Smoke; we were both surprised to see that it was chopped brisket (though my photo of the menu indicates that it says it is chopped), but he seemed to enjoy his sandwich. I’ve been craving ribs lately, so I opted for the ribs. for $9.75 this is actually a fairly decent value – I found them satisfying, [...]

Pok Pok Ny

Yep, that’s me – a Taste Maker.   A few weeks ago, I was invited to dine at Pok Pok Ny – the Portland transplanted restaurant in Brooklyn – with none other than Ted Allen, sponsored by Pepcid AC, and Tanqueray. I don’t suffer from food-related heartburn (to clarify: I was diagnosed with stress-induced acid reflux 10 years ago, took medication, and have only experienced the same very very sporadically over the years since then), so I can’t say that part spoke to me. But I like to eat, and eat I did: sai ua samun phrai, a sausage [...]


This might be one of the fastest turnarounds for a post, ever. (I say one of because I know once upon a time, I would attend food festival events and bust my butt to get them out by the next day.) Honestly this is because I have run out of material to post. Ahem. ST visited NYC this past weekend, and since we’ve been talking about going to Talde since forEVER (or since we first started talking), we finally made a trip… and waited… for over an hour for a table. Y’all know that I don’t like waiting for things [...]

Told you I was going to try posting this more often! Driving down to NC to visit my girl Aimee, stopped at Cracker Barrel for my favorite chicken fried chicken covered in country gravy, sauteed veggies and hash brown casserole. YUM. Nachos at El Senor. It’s becoming a bit of a tradition to end the trip with WAFFLE HOUSE!!! BLT with my smothered, diced, capped hash browns. YUM. Pork stir fry over rice! I discovered a fantastic stir fry sauce that I made myself. I’ll share the recipe soon. Brunch at Agora Tavern with my bestie. Chicken noodle soup and [...]

Football Snacks

The really observant among you may have noticed that I didn’t talk much about baseball this past season. No, I was obstinate in my cold shoulder towards baseball, so when football season started, I was ecstatic. Over the moon. I continued playing fantasy football [poorly], and began obsessively watching games. You know what’s a great part of watching games? The food. The snacks. Also… call me weird, but I vastly prefer watching games alone. When you watch with other people, they actually expect you to socialize and like, pay attention to them when they talk. Ugh. So I make a [...]
