Pictures of the Week

Pictures of the Week! And its Restaurant Week Too!

Hope everyone in Memphis is trying to stay cool. I am not going to lie, it felt pretty nice this week not sweating into my socks after our rainstorm earlier in the week. The Kid in the puffy coat still takes the cake, bless his heart. We are starting New York’s summer restaurant week that runs till August 18. In other words this is my Graceland or otherwise its like a fat kid eating cake!

daniel-profile-860x574Oh Grainbin Girl is going to be pissed now. Yep we are going to be dining with this man at not one but 2 of his joints for restaurant week.

IMG_1372I think it was best when Rebecca said that this person must be from Belize. It was 70 degrees out folks.

IMG_1365Shout out to Sandy and Rick our former Rowing Coaches – That is big balls rowing right there folks. That isn’t some little lake, it is the Hudson River! #Power #thatswhatshesaid

IMG_1363Need to make it over there one time. I hear it is nice

IMG_1366Now that folks is a Bar!

IMG_1360Went on a boat ride last Sunday. Nice shot of the Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan in the background.

IMG_1364Some Bitch in the Harbor! And S/O to Boris my new barber! My hair game was on point this past Sunday!

Be kind to each other this weekend.

Taking my ish on the road this weekend. I may be hooked up to the last picture by the time you finish reading this.

img_0348I ‘know’ a guy who has the same name and it didn’t get me anywhere on National Margarita Day!

img_0345So that is why traffic is jacked up

img_0343Not sure what they were shooting but it wasn’t Law & Order. Sorry A Cup

img_0185Funeral Mass procession

img_0189Me – “You got an Asian Fireman working today?” Fireman who about pissed himself because I ripped open the back door – “That Sorry SOB hasn’t worked in forever. He must be on the AB plan!”

img_0361Thanks to little baby sister for the V-Day gift. Better than a gold dipped rose!

vodkaGood thing I know a Baby Nurse and a Spinal Nurse who live downtown. They can hook me up to this Friday afternoon. I would ask my wife but her ass left me for Mickey Mouse !

Have a good weekend!

Random ‘ish’ On My Camera Roll

This new iFoam 7 has me all jacked up. I am back on Snapchat so I am now taking more pics than I know what to do. One of these days I am going to go Ass over Tea Cups down a Bilco Door Stairs into some produce like Samantha.

img_0152“Hurry your Drunk Ass Up CBT, I got to go home and Pee” Mrs. Trumpet is ready to go

img_0153Heading from the bowels of hell below E72nd Street.

img_0166I got called out by LZ about my new Subway line and I told her that it was a ‘game changer’. Here is my favorite chef in front of a mural of Daniel Boulud. Boulud owns a joint in the UES that is on our short list also. Hey AT – you know that I took this picture don’t you? #headexplodes

img_0156You win Nova, You win! I hate this shit! I prefer to sweat.

ba-and-annaThe woman on the left is Anna Hamilton formally of Anna’s Steakhouse in Bartlett. She was one of my clients when I slung groceries for D.Canale. She is now the night manager at the new Elvis Presley Guesthouse in Memphis.

img_2765Mrs. C and Ba with Mayor Strickland at the Elvis Presley Birthday Celebration

img_0124Wonder why they say don’t go into an empty subway car. Oh wait, what is that….OH GOT DAMN!!!!! I kid, it was empty by the time we made it to 68th street on NYE.

img_0158Still pisses me off for paying this for beers. And the fecking things were hot too!

Happy Bonus Post!

 

 

Tucker’s 50th Anniversary of circling the sun

One of the MoHo’s turned 50 this past summer so a bunch of us headed up to Beantown to see her, some guy named Big Papi and drink a couple Sam Adams beers. It was a good trip. Rather than pretend we didn’t pretty much eat and drink our faces off I will give you the pictures that are PG-13

img_2363Inside Cheers the Bar in Boston

img_2368Oldest Bar in Boston and Sarah

img_2366You got to get a picture of the sign, that is like going to Memphis and not getting a picture of the Grave.

img_2349The Sausage Guy sells exclusively in Fenway Park

img_2354Little Bit Rainy and Cold at Friday’s game

img_2356The Green Monster and the John Hancock Scoreboard. The stadium is very small and reminds me of Wrigley!

img_2357Kathy and Shobo

img_2383Me and Baby Fine Hair!

img_2372It was good to have Scott there to offset the hormones that were a flowing!

img_2379Are we a tad dehydrated?

img_2392Had to get me a Lobster Roll!

img_2373And here is when it went off the rails! Happy Birthday Tucker! We Love Ya!

We will be back to Beantown! Fun times!

 

Been kinda Bizzy!

Stop yelling at me ok? I get it that I am a slacker and haven’t written in a week. I could give you this sob story about how I am banging out a bunch of hours on the new job. Or that since Momma is pledging her sorority at NYU I have taken up the duty of cooking the evening meals. That on Sunday when I normally bust out a lot of these stories on the laptop but the internet was jacked up.  It certainly couldn’t be that I went to the West Side to drink Whisky and smoke cigars with The Banker. Nah it wasn’t that one, not at all.  let’s get you back up to speed shall we?

Yes, last week I was back in Memphis for selling tickets class for the Tour Bus company and I really didn’t have much time to play. I did some networking, I caught up with my former admin who now lives in Memphis and lived out off of Hack Cross Road for the week. I did ‘sneak’ downtown on Sunday and got to see some folks but this trip was so busy I didn’t sound the alarm so sorry if I didn’t see everyone. We will be back at Christmas so clear your calendar. Anyway here are some pictures that I had on my iFoam so here they are in no particular order. Yes they are way out of order too.

img_5525Those damned South Main Hipsters with their ManBuns……Oh wait sorry Gardo!

img_5533Your Father is an Eagles Fan, your mommy is a Cowboys fan…Let’s piss them all off shall we Lisa Marie? Let’s make you a JETS fan!

img_5534The Dog is thinking – “Who is this Northern Fecker who knocked on my door and camped out on my patio smoking a cigar?”

img_5542That kid is going to be alright. Already camping out under the bar on a busy Wednesday night.

img_5543So good to see these two!

img_5545I will admit that I miss the Memphis News a little.

img_5558Made a trip on the Q Train to Park Slope and walked by the Russian House in Neon

img_5559Congrats to Mr. 3 first names on getting a new title with the NYFD. We are proud of you and hope you will be in the UES!

img_5568Forgot to hit Send on this on Saturday. Thankfully we had Whisky Club on Sunday.

img_5517Still got to use these on Sunday night. Anyone else have keys to a bar in Memphis? I do….at least until Momma changed the lock.

I am off to Boston this afternoon to celebrate my Aruba Wife’s anniversary of circling the sun 50 times. Have a good weekend and I promise to do better.

 

Pictures of the Week from a different Island

So here are some pics that I can share with my 6 readers.  Busy day today, heading to 11 Wall Street.

IMG_2009Yes that is a scorpion in the bottle and No I didn’t partake in this!

IMG_2017The lead singer did not play. 6 inch F me pumps and she jammed!

IMG_2020Lots of kids with their families at Playa Norte. So much fun to be a kid on that island.

IMG_2024The Ernest Herbert Mellor Drink Combo (Margarita on the Rocks and Beer)

IMG_2036Post Sunday Funday Adult Swim. Yes everyone was wearing approved swimwear.

IMG_2041That damned Ernest Herbert Drink Special again!

IMG_2047RJ rented a bike for he and I to ride on to the beach.

IMG_2054The best we could figure out was that it was generic Bud Light. Of course $39.90pesos /16 to 1 exchange rate = $2.49 for a 6 pack or .41 cents a beer. GFY Natural Light!

IMG_2058RJ – I am going to bring the cart to BoBo’s. That way we have immediate seating for 4 at the bar.

IMG_2059She needs her hat with that outfit.

IMG_2060Another fun time at Bobo’s

IMG_2061I needed a little religion on Monday morning.

IMG_2063Damnit CBT, lay off the Katie Pictures.

IMG_2118Where we had dinner on the last night.

IMG_2119Fancy Wine Bucket here in Mexico

IMG_2121Someone’s Fun-O-Meter went kaput.

IMG_2128Not sure what it was but SG was pumped that he finally found it!

IMG_2130Isla>CUN>ATL>LGA = Depression mode in full effect

IMG_2131I want to go back to Isla Mujeres! This blows!

Pictures of the Week

It has been a good week and this weekend will be even better. We head out to Atlantic City to annoy our former neighbor and see which one of us can resemble a Christmas Tree the best. Have a good one folks.

IMG_1805“Excuse me, do you know how to get to 19 Bowery ?”
“Sure you go down this street and hang a left at the Unicorn on the Fire Escape!”
That man wasn’t lying when he said Unicorn on Fire Escape!

IMG_1794Let’s play a game, can we see how man sweaty tourists we can get to stand on the corner of Broadway and 34th Street.

IMG_1813Apologies to my favorite Hippo loving,  Todd Rundgren singing, Not for Profit working Jessie W if this song gets stuck in your head. #Robocares

IMG_1814Who knew that so many of my friends were Radio Head fans.

IMG_1818It really doesn’t suck being in a suite in the Garden.

IMG_1822Kind of cool having a 19K person sing-a-long!

IMG_1823I am not sure if I should be excited or offended that my client gave me this. I think she saw the sandwich I ate yesterday on Instagram.

IMG_1826Got to love the 3 dollar shoe shine joints in the Financial District

FullSizeRenderGet ready former Neighbor to raise your hand because you heard the same story from yesterday. Oh and you too KJ and JD! It is going to be on!

 

Pics from The Week

We had a good week this past week, the short work week ran me out of days so some of these pics are from the week prior to the 4th. Oh and I had to do some deleting of some pics because I am almost at my storage limit so not too many good ones.

IMG_1570What Southerner doesn’t own at least one seersucker or linen suit in their life? I think I have had over a dozen in my life. Sadly they get DESTROYED up here moving around here in the city so I found a joint that sells them cheap. Broke this bad boy out last week and had 2 tourists take pictures with me in SoHo. Wait till I get the straw Brooks Brothers hat for the Friday of Labor Day!

IMG_1564The Monkey Head’s Russian Groomer likes Willie Nelson too? I love this woman!

IMG_1606I would say that our Uber Driver is well connected. 3 smart devices running at the same time.

IMG_1651 [69414]It has been a tad warm here in NYC. God Bless my coworker who also “Runs Hot” because I have been drying myself off each morning sitting at this sucker.

IMG_1580

Yep, I think the Grizz will be pretty good this year!

IMG_1653 [69415]

S/O to my fellow Tavern frequenter on winning a very prestigious award in our company. I had 3 coworkers win the award and 4 friends of mine who work in other divisions of the company do the same.

We are going to be busy as we are hosting the first recipient of the Carl Lipbalm Memorial Caddy Scholarship this weekend. More on that later. Have a good weekend and make it count!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pictures from last week

We had great weather this past week and weekend. Little Baby sister came in town for the weekend with her husband and we got some of the gang together for dinner in Little Italy. Hope you had a good weekend.

IMG_1494Visited Bleecker Street Pizza this past week. Yep, it lives up to the hype!

IMG_1496The Stonewall Inn where the start of the LGBT movement started here in NYC. We bought the NYPD Counter Terrorism guys some bottled water.

IMG_1499Everyone needs a Consultant you know?

IMG_1500Figured my first Chef sighting would be Bourdain, not Anne

IMG_1502Shout out to my boys at Engine 39 Ladder 16 for getting some residents of our building out of the elevator. No I wasn’t the one stuck.

IMG_1513Shout out to my girl DCG!

IMG_1540Got to love an Eye-Talian joint that already puts out the spaghetti spoon on the table.

IMG_1538I wondered why I had MPH on Sunday

IMG_1541Little Baby Sister and her Husband.

IMG_1509Walking down to work temps were in the mid 60’s

 Have a good week!

 

Pictures from the past week

Happy Father’s Day to all those Daddy’s out there. Especially the ones who are first year Daddies and you know who you are!

IMG_1440I really need some inflatable pool floats for the pool that I don’t go to on Friday’s

IMG_1446How cool would it be to watch “House Of Cards” on that sucker. No LZ, & EM I won’t see if you can watch that crappy “Bachelor” show that you rot your brain on. And if either of you get Mrs. CBT to start watching that show it will be on like Donkey Kong!

IMG_1422Hell with shopping at Eataly, I prefer drinking on the roof of Eataly!

IMG_1415Sent this to Ernest Herbet last week and said that I sourced a great Pork Vendor in the Upper East Side. His reply was “Sheeet!”

IMG_1441Ahem MATA – One of your shitty Trolley’s escaped and was seen driving down 3rd Avenue. Oh when are you getting the ones that run on rails back up again? Yeah good luck with that.

IMG_1452My boy Haziff who runs the only drive thru Coffee Cart in Greenwich Village. This is also the same Coffee Cart that I let Will Arnett go in front of me to get a cup of coffee and he thanked me. I didn’t know who he was until a tourist told me.

IMG_1465Cherries are $17.00 a pound at Morton Williams across the street. Here they are $2.00 for a big ass bag of them. Care to guess where we get our produce each day?

Indecently, please don’t hate me if you start to see 3 posts during the work week. With my new position I find that I run out of time at the end of the day. You may start to see 3 posts a week and my pics of the week on the weekends. Keep it light and Happy Fathers day!
