Check out this really funny video all about cake.

At my office, we always get three cakes from the Little Pie Company for birthdays, baby showers, etc. People go buckwild for their carrot cake… like elbow-throwing crazy.

Lunch for Under $3

August 31, 2007

Lunch in Midtown is a nightmare—100 different versions of “Create Your Own Salad” get old real quick. And all the fast-food chains like Chipotle and Cosi have lines down the block. So I thought I’d try the semi-recently opened $.99 Fresh Pizza that I read about on Midtown Lunch. Supposedly, it’s decent pizza and you can get two slices and a soda for $2.75 ($2.98 with tax). I’d definitely say “decent” is a good description—the pizza is super doughy, which makes sense since they’re scrimping on the price. And it took 15 minutes to get my lunch—I think Chipotle might actually be faster! The worst part was the horrid smell inside the restaurant/small-box-of-a-pizza-place. If I wasn’t so starving by the time I got my slices, I would’ve thrown them out just because of the stench. But I have to say—lunch for under $3 is pretty impressive. And if I didn’t test it out, I never would’ve found the Blue Pig Homemade Ice Cream store next door… score!

I can count on one hand the amount of lobsters I’ve eaten in my life, I’ve never had caviar, and my idea of good champagne is a nice bottle of Asti Spumante in a plastic cup. But nonetheless, I love to eat. And even more, I love to eat in New York—especially in my neighborhood, the lower east side. There’s no better place to find a chic, cheap, cozy restaurant or bar. So I’ve decided that I’m going to write about all my tasty escapades…
