Caffe Reggio New York

screen-shot-2016-11-19-at-1-06-37-pm

Caffe Reggio is a New York City coffeehouse first opened in 1927 at 119 Macdougal Street in the heart of Manhattan’s Greenwich Village.

Italian cappuccino was introduced in America by the founder of Caffe Reggio, Domenico Parisi, in the early 1920s.[1] Inside the cafe, against the back wall, there is still the original espresso machine, made in 1902, that Domenico Parisi bought with his savings when he opened the cafe in 1927.

The Caffe Reggio has been featured in many movies, including The Godfather Part II, Next Stop, Greenwich Village, The Kremlin Letter, Shaft, Serpico, The Next Man, In Good Company, Inside Llewyn Davis and others. Many celebrities have been spotted or photographed in this location. In 1959, presidential hopeful John F. Kennedy made a speech outside the coffee shop. In 2010, the cafe was honored with a Village Award[2] by the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation for its status as a beloved and essential part of the neighborhood.

Caffe Reggio has a bench from a palazzo of the Florentine Medici family of Renaissance fame. The bench is not roped-off and guests can sit on it and admire a painting from an artist of the school of Caravaggio.

Bourbon Old Fashion Cocktail

 

 
An Old Fashion and New Orleans. Two things I Love dearly. And drinking Old Fashions in New Orleans and Bourbon Old Fashions to be more specific is a favorite pastime of mine, especially at such fine Bars as Napoleon House, The Long Bar at Tujague’s, or at Arnaud’s and Galatoire’s.
The first thing i order from my waiter at my beloved Galatoire’s is a Bourbon Old Fashion. They make them perfectly here, muddling an Orange Slice with sugar, Maraschino Cherry, Soda, and Angostora Bitters before filling the glass with Ice and adding my Bourbon. The waiter brings my Old Fashion and I’m in Heaven. I’m at Galatoire’s in New Orleans. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in the World. I have my drink, sitting in the main dining room looking the menu over. “Oh Bliss.”
    What to have for lunch. Shall I get a Gumbo, Raw Oysters, or Oysters Rockefeller to start? Decisions, Decisions! And my main Course? Trout Almondine, Shrimp Clemenceau, or Filet Mignon topped with Fried Oysters and Hollandaise. Think I’ll go for a Cup of Gumbo, followed by the Oysters Rockefellor, and Trout Almondine for my main. They should go with my Bourbon Old Fashion quite nicely.
    What, “No Wine with Your Meal,” you ask. knowing what a Wine freak I am.
“No, not in New Orleans my friends.” I do not drink Wine in the Cresent City. It’s all pretty much Cocktails when I’m down there, maybe a Beer or two, but no Wine what-so-ever in New Orleans for me. Hey it’s the way to go in New Orleans. That’s what you do down there, Cocktails are preferred throughout the meal over Wine. And that’s fine by me. It just seems to go better. My Bourbon Old Fashion and all the fine Creole Cuisine. I Love it.
So, if you’re ever down there, in that wonderful city on the Mississippi, New Orleans, go to Galatoire’s, Antoine’s, Arnauds’s. Order yourself a nice Lunch or Dinner, and don’t forget to get a couple Bourbon Old Fashions to go with your meal. It’s a match made in Heaven, Creole Food and an Old Fashion in New Orleans, Louisiana. “Do it.”

Beast of Burden The Rolling Stones

Screen Shot 2016-11-17 at 6.01.19 PM.png

Mick Jagger, Ron Wood, & Keith Richards … The ROLLING STONES

 

Watch This Video for one of The STONES Best Live Performances ever .. Unfortunately the image quality isn’t very good, but Luckily the sound is  .. There used to be a better quality video up on Youtube of this particular performance but for whatever reason it was taken down  …  This video is of a Stones Concert in Texas 1978 around the time of the release of SOME GIRLS, one of The ROLLING STONES Best Albums of All-Time with such great songs as this Beast of Burden, Some Girls, Miss You, When The Whip Comes Down, Shattered, and The Girl with The Far Away Eyes …

So even though the video quality isn’t that great, you can still enjoy watching this great performance by The World’s Greatest Rock Band of All-Time, The ROLLING STONES …

Check out MICK jumping all around and dancing up a storm as only Mick can do. And if you’re a big guitar fan, check out Keith & Ronnie on their Dueling Les Paul’s (Gibson Les Paul Guitars).
