Tag it, tag it.  Or something.

Nice, but you do know that its a reprint from an article that's now a year old right?  

 

Well, now I do - but I hardly ever read the small print.  I'm really good at being on time, though.

 

 

Not exactly timely, but the current (?) issue of Edible Manhattan/Brooklyn has an article entitled:

 

A Caribbean Food Tour of Crown Heights

 

Crown Heights has long been a mecca for West Indian food, a treasure trove of interrelated cuisines that combine South Asian spices with New World ingredients in unexpected ways. At the unexceptional-looking takeout joints along Nostrand Avenue, the neighborhood’s largely unchanged commercial hub, you’ll find everything from long-stewed oxtail and goat to buttery fruit-studded pastries to some of the best vegan food anywhere. The spots highlighted here are a very small sampling meant to encourage the new residents of Crown Heights (and everyone, really!) to look outside Mayfield, Barboncino and Chavela’s for dinner. It’s one of the great casual-eating neighborhoods in the entire city, a trip to the islands without leaving home.

 

 

 

Different neighborhood.  NOT around the Kings Theater.

 

 

Yeah, but I'm from Forest Hills (the unfancy part) originally, so cut me some slack.

That wasn't meant as any kind of snip at you; only to alert readers who aren't familiar with Brooklyn that the article doesn't address the area around the Kings Theater (now that this is all in a "Kings Theather" thread).

 

Sorry.  I didn't mean it to come across that way.

No, don't worry, it didn't. Just having some Friday fun before I head off to jury duty.

 

(What judge calls jurors back at 2 PM on a Friday?)

I don't understand what happened in that video.


I wonder if having Georgia walk through a series of disasters in total oblivion has anything to do with the fact that her father created Mr. Magoo?
