Stop Making Sense

Some day the spring weather will arrive, but more importantly it’s choco matzo season! Super easy to make and super addictive to eat.

So here’s what you need:

  • 6 matzo
  • 1 cup butter (that’s 2 sticks)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar (light or dark, it’s up to you)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (use the real stuff, it tastes way better)
  • 1 bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 oven, preheated @350

line cookie sheets w/parchment paper, lay out matzo

cover matzo in melted butter, vanilla & brown sugar then into oven for 8 minutes

place chips on top, then back into oven for 3 minutes, take out and smoosh melted chocolate on matzo, let cool in fridge

Welp, tonight’s staff meal is now ready to go.

see you upstate!

Everybody Wants Some

Not one to pass up a little food porn, especially when it’s oysters. NYC Foodie shares his night hanging at our place. And drops an f-bomb…of the good kind.

hey thanks for the pix: nycfoodie.com

I never pass up a dish with sea urchin. The sea urchin here, is served with a raw egg, wild salmon roe, onions, butternut squash puree, and toasted points. You mix up the ingredients and spread it on the toasted points and have yourself an awesome little bite.  Check out his full scoop here.

Greatest American Hero

A dog walks in to a bar and says: hey bartender, how ’bout a drink?

Bartender says: sure, toilet’s right over there

Meet Grundy. He works over at Elsewhere Espresso, around the corner from us. He’s named after a zombie supervillain. And to think folks give us a hard time about BuckShowalter.

Whiskey In The Jar

Because we believe it’s an act of sacrilege to serve green beer, we’re embracing our Irish-ness with a special whiskey cake for tonight’s service. Faugh a Ballagh!

being Irish requires an entire bottle of food coloring

Life Is A Highway

BuckShowalter has four destinations programed into his GPS

  1. Washington Square Park
  2. Our shop (with a pit stop at Whiskers)
  3. The vet (yup, he’s weird)
  4. Old parking garage for our truck (he hasn’t caught on that our new garage is even closer)

Macho Man

There comes a time (or two) in a guy’s life when his manhood is truly put to the test. What makes a dude hot? As in how hot he can handle his mustard perverts.

Best hot mustard in the city? Our neighbor, the Polish G. I. Delicatessen makes it. Don’t let the chain-smoking, evil-eye glaring staruszka out in front scare you away. Sure she’ll probably put a curse on you but hey, that’s part of her charm.

Hazel Kiesewetter

So while some of us (husband) find their mustard to be too hot, we still eat it (a lot) because it’s just that good. Go get some. And happy nose burn.

See you upstate!

Waiting In Vain

Too cold to complain about the weather anymore. Way funner to check out some of the fancy photos you guys posted on our foursquare page.

Alright Alright Alright

Because we don’t have any TVs behind the bar, and aren’t all that interested we were fed Oscar info through the interwebs. Our favorite, snort out loud moment?

Always found the #EEEEEATS tag from the Immaculate Infatuation fellas funny. Tagging Brad Pitt chowing down on pizza?Priceless.

But then again, we still find your mom jokes to be funny.
