Can someone who is unemployed enjoy Labor Day?

You bet your sweet arse he can! Hope all enjoyed their time at the lake, football tailgate, beach or whatever it is you do when you have a 3 day holiday weekend. This past weekend was absolutely beautiful here in the city and just because “oh you couldn’t get away for the weekend, you poor soul” we took great advantage of it and hung with friends. I left you on Friday as we went and got some culture at the Met so on Saturday we journeyed up to Woodlawn in the Bronx to see our good friends and kids. A good time was had by all and we enjoyed some ribs, pork loin and an occasional cigar. Sunday we took our show on the and headed over to Park Slope to partake in some roof top shenanigans and hung with friends. Monday we found that there was a street festival on 52nd so we went down to midtown in search of a pronto pup. Sadly New Yorkers are not afforded the “meat on stick” delicacy that we were accustomed to but I assure you I made my Lipitor pill work overtime. This week we have a couple of interviews, a trip to Costco, and have some 9/11 events to partake in with the Pipes and Drums boys.

IMG_8790Got to love Harlem Shambles, all we had to do was pull these babies out of the bag and put them on the smoker.

IMG_8791Hey Ruthie and Chunky, I bet that Colin is looking down on us saying “Don’t burn them CBT!”

IMG_8800Damnit CBT don’t you dare put me in your blog! Ok, just lean out Doctor and don’t worry I won’t tell anyone that you are a surgeon.

IMG_8798Yes they still have these things around NYC

IMG_8807You can always tell that you are near the UN as there are a ton of Consulates nearby.

IMG_8808Do you know how much money we could make if we had a Chicken on a Stick or Pronto Pup stand?

IMG_8809I did have a killer Arepas with mozzarella cheese however, I bet you can’t get that at the Delta Fair!

IMG_8810The World famous Halal Brothers carts (6th and 53rd and also at 6th and 52nd) They line them up like Rockettes waiting on that food! What I hear is that the late night crowd lines are insane, noting like a bunch of half crocked New Yorkers waiting on street meat!

IMG_8813Today is the big day for the Stephen Colbert Late Show. Deep down I am going to miss Dave and Paul but I bet that this won’t disappoint.
