If you're anywhere near H&H Bagels, can ya grab a baker's dozen of pumpernickel? Mmmm. They're on the Upper West Side, but you can get them at the cheese shop on Third Ave between 9th & 10th Streets. Cos, you know, I really, really like New York pumpernickel bagels. Y'know, depending on where you are.

I'm supposed to be down towards the lower east side, cooper square I think it is.. But after thinking about it I wouldn't be surprised if NYC postpones the visit due to storm clean up.. I'll be underground via a manhole part of the time.. Not sure if they'll be ready for that sort of thing by wednesday AM but they probably will be..

If you're at Cooper Square, the cheese shop is a couple of blocks north. It's worth the visit if you like cheese, and then there are the bagels. Before you go in, read all the signs. Once you're in line, KNOW what you want.

Spin the big cube at Astor Place (and note the beavers! in the subway).


Man, I think I should just move back, but where to store all the bikes?!

They hardly got any snow this time through. I lived there in '93 when we got 33 INCHES in the city, and I still went to work. There was a knife fight at Kim's video on Avenue A...it was great 'cos the rest of us just sorta stood around watching as these two idiots went at it, waiting to get to the back to the foreign films or the naughty section.

That's pumpernickel ;)

Plan on making it.. but I got a massive head cold.. too much snow shoveling I guess If I still feel like I have a water balloon stuffed up my nose I may have to take a rain check.

I'm out. the forecast is calling for snow tomorrow night, I won't be able to get home safely between that and the potential for icy roads.

Sorry, I was looking forward to the evening.

I am tentative. Fuel pump just let go on the truck and it depends on what needs to be done and when.
