Sunday – Funday at Coney Island

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know that this post is late. Do you know how hard it is to come up with Holy Week Lenten Jokes each day?  Last Sunday we decided to head on the Q to Coney Island since the boardwalk was officially open and because we had a fun time on our last Trip. We reached out to our favorite Russian who lives in the UES and we met her at the E72nd subway stop. The ride to the end of the line was exactly 1 hour. Stop laughing Maria and some of you New Yorkers, you are going to be jealous when you finish this entry.

We arrived at the boardwalk and promptly headed over to Nathans for some meat in tube form. Let me just say that I hope that Nathans was having some first week jitters because service was to say “a little slow”. Mrs. Trumpet had a corndog while I enjoyed 2 hot dogs with Mustard and Relish. Oh and the Bacon Cheese Fries are pretty damn good too. You read that Zsquared? They have M’effin Bacon Cheese Fries! After lunch The Russian mentioned that we should “walk of our wieners” so we checked out the rides and games on the boardwalk. No we didn’t ride the Wonder Wheel or the Cyclone this time but it is on the short list for next trip. We found a nice spot at Ruby’s on the boardwalk and enjoyed watching the patrons walking the boardwalk, got some sun and a buzz.

Later we found another establishment that is right up some of our Dive Beer fans called Red Doors Bar and Grill. $3 Bud Lights in a can and they were ice cold. Knock it off KLC, they had fancy beers there too. After a good afternoon of people watching we headed home with some Train Beers and ordered pizza for dinner. AKA – It was a good Sunday Funday!
