The Perfect Pint! One of the Thee Best Irish Pubs in NYC!!!

8 Nov

Foodie Alert!!!!!!!  Beer Lovers Alert!!!!!!

Hanging in the city…after a very important business meeting in Manhattan, it was asked,”How about a beer? It’s mid-afternoon and you look like you need to relax!”

I didn’t think it showed, but I was so nervous and quickly said..Why not!  So walking fast (33 degrees outside), heading towards the East side I quickly found myself right in front of the The Perfect Pint East, located at 203 East 45th Street (between 2nd and 3rd Ave)!

The atmosphere was lively, the staff was great and most of all the ale was terrific!  Get this! I had a Goose Island I.P.A. ~ A highly hopped ale, really nice tasting and surprisingly fruity! The first time I actually tasted it…then all of a sudden, I had two!

What did I eat with it? I went with a traditional burger… you can never go wrong with a burger!

It was an excellent; cooked to perfection and I shared…it was humongous!

Operation RELAX accomplished!

The Perfect Pint also has a roof top for more entertaining, where at night the city’s lights would be such a great backdrop!

And, there are two convenient locations one on the West side and the other on the East side! Cool marketing!

So if you are ever in the theatre district and want a great choice of beer varieties; plus great food with a cool atmosphere!

I highly recommend the The Perfect Pint!  

Make sure you call or go on-line to book a table!  We were lucky to get in, for it was crowded!  I will be back very soon!

Michael Agnew, Beer writer, Certified Cicerone® and is the owner of The Perfect Pint and believes there is a beer for everyone; just have to try it!.  If you are interested to know more about the restaurant and menu items – log on to http://www.perfectpintnyc.com and also check out his blog – which of course is named A Perfect Pint! http://www.aperfectpint.net

Dinner or Supper, What a Debate!

26 Oct

question markThere is so much going on in the world, who would have ever thought that a mere dinner date with six friends would turn into a 30 minute debate; without a moderator!

Before we even ordered!! So annoying that the topics that we would usually talk about did not ever get talked about because of a mere formality of a word. It all started by us sitting down at one of our favorite restaurants, Saju Bistro – here in NYC; right on 44th in the theatre district!

Everyone arrived on time and one person said “I am starving, I am so ready for supper!   The other person said “Supper?”, who in the hell says that, you mean dinner?” With the reply, “I never say dinner, you’re wrong – it’s supper”.

We went on to order appetizers and few cocktails!  But oh no, it could n’t be left alone. Upon ordering our entrees it started again, this supper dinner thing!  It got to the point where I said, “Who gives a flying mosquito”! For I couldn’t think of anything better to say, there were little ones at the next table!

The most important thing to me, was that there was food; that I who wanted to eat…because I like the food and I could eat! Simple?  So, I thought! Until the cell phones were pulled out like swords and the searches began; this really matter to everyone???  CRAZY!!

Everyone was now curious on what is the difference.  Now, I’ll be the first to admit I have used both in the past; however DINNER for me is the runner-up.

Dinner refers to the most significant meal of the day, which can be the noon or the evening meal. However, the term “dinner” can have many different meanings depending on the culture; it may mean a meal of any size eaten at any time of day.
Supper refers to the lite evening meal, often the principal meal of the day.  Or it can be an evening social event at which a supper is served to raise money for a church, charity, etc.

The more they read, it still didn’t resolve anything!   Until the words, ENOUGH was said by the quiet one in the group with a loud voice.  Thank goodness, cause we would have been still talking about it!

The disagreeing parties surrendered and then the topic was turned to the World Series!

I was ecstatic and the mood finally changed! You might be saying, who cares!!!!!!  I couldn’t agree with you more!

But I bet you, when you hear the word dinner now, you’ll notice!  I am so glad we did not talk about the word AUNT!  Gheez!

By the way, I’m heading home and just a few moments ago, I’d received a text from my friend – it said  “you know it’s DINNER! ;)”  Friends, you got to love them!
