Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer

Brian and I were near the Meatpacking District, I was getting hangry, and subsequently had this insane craving for a big, fat, juicy burger. We headed towards Black Tap and as we were walking, I saw this long line on the block. Naturally, I assumed it was a line for a show. Of course, I realized too late that these people in line are actually there for the burgers as well.

Mid-Panic, I asked Brian to buy us tacos from the truck across the street (LOL) while I waited in line for a table. The line was almost half a block and we were told that the wait was going to be 40 minutes. 40 MINUTES! 10 minutes in, Brian came back with two pork tacos and after scarfing them down, we both agreed to wait another 5, after that we were going for a slice. Not even two seconds later, the hostess came in and said they had bar seating for two! PERFECT. Click through to continue reading!

Saw Hayao Miyazaki‘s The Wind Rises last week but not before heading into Schnipper’s for a quick dinner. I used to always order lunch here with my coworkers (back when I actually ate lunch haha) but I’ve never actually dined at their restaurant. I like it here – it looks and feels like a school cafeteria except the food is better. It’s funny because right as I sat down, this little girl kept staring at me. Finally, halfway through our meal, her mother turns around and says to me, “She likes your dress and purse and wants to know if you’re in college because you’re dressed so nice.” Sweetest thing ever said to me because I’m old, decrepit, and definitely not in college anymore even though I was pretty much eating like a noob who’s completely oblivious to the Freshman 20.
