25 cent wing night.. Woman walks in with a soda in her hand... I would like your 25 cent wings but, I do not drink... "Oh thats, fine, we have the wings on the menu but, unfortunately, you can't get the  25  cent wing special without purchasing a pint of beer"  "so let me get this straight, you are suggesting I break my 7 years of sobriety just to get your 25 cent wings"    "of course not, no one would possibly suggest that, I am simply saying, in order to qualify for the drink special, you must purchase a drink"  "Well, I hope you know I am leaving"  " i am so sorry, again, no one is suggesting you leave or drink alcohol, you will just have to purchase our wings at the regular price"

She'll now go and complain to the SLA that your special of beer + wings is just a run around the prohibition of more than 50% off at happy hour.  :wacko:

 

Offer a $15 NA beer.


sandwiches that are large and filling and do not contain tuna or prawns

Offer a mocktail or a fancy soda for the same price as an alcoholic drink. You would not be the first.

Or in Germany, water. 😂

So I'm coming back from visiting some friends in New Jersey, taking the bus with their daughter, who used to live in Crown Heights and now lives in Park Slope.

 

"Have you ever been to this place I discovered called Mekelburg's?"  she asked.  "The meat loaf sandwich is my favorite food in the world."

Sneak, do you indulge the Youth when they seek to impress you with their urban knowledge?

For better or worse, though, few of them catch the reference when I mutter, “‘Tis new to thee.”

Slightly off-topic, but last night I was sitting next to a couple of kids at Cervo's counter (it was their first visit). He started asking me about the wines and sherries I was drinking, whether I was a regular, blah blah blah.  I indulged because, well, his other half was really cute.

 

In any event, after a few minutes of conversation and finding out that her uncle had owned a "few restaurants" over the past 30 years, I asked who her uncle was.  And he is Pino Luongo - they were blown away by the fact that I knew who he was, and that he was a fairly important fixture of the NYC food scene back in the 90s.

wow, pino luongo, I may have mentioned I have everyone of his cookbooks and that he is a straight up inspiration of mine and the only reason I ever ventured to the upper east side outside of a going to a “special bodega” or two

He still has a few restaurants, including one on Sutton Place!

PL, oh yes!    His first book was instrumental in getting me to put recipes aside, consider flavor and the ingredients necessary to create that flavor, texture and what process(es) would result in that texture.    Life changing.

So Luongo's -niece- didn't grok that her uncle had been a legitimately big deal?

 

The young really are impatient to tread on our memories.
