I Got My Sandwich!

Thursday, June 21, 2007

Honestly, this picture doesn’t dothe sandwich’s size any justice!

On my way home tonight, I had to get my sandwich, particularly after regaling people with the story from earlier today. I stopped in at the Union Square Subway Restaurant Subway and I got more than I bargained for. The clerks were so nice and […]

Foie Gras Linked to Diseases

Wednesday, June 20, 2007

For those of us who love foie gras (yum!), today Wikinews reports terrible news. A recent study links foie gras consumption with Alzheimer’s, arthritis, diabetes, and other diseases.

You’ve probably seen them around the city… Rafiqi’s carts (link is to, a great site to know about), they’re seemingly everywhere, I know of at least six locations (and I think I spotted one in an outer borough the other day). Big carts, usually with a raised stand for their […]
