Mamoun’s Falafel


Founded in 1971, Mamoun’s has long been one of the best spots in all of New York 
to get great “Cheap Eats.” At just $4 for a falafel that for most is easily enough to fill you up at lunch, an in-between meal or even dinner. And as far as Great Late Night Cheap Eats, Mamoun’s just can’t be beat. I like get a Falafale-Baba (Babaganoush) Combo, at $5 it a inexpensive, fast, tasty meal that I can get anytime I like, as my apartment building is a short two blocks away.

PS … Mamoun’s claims to be the First Place Ever to serve Falafel Sandwiches in New York. We beleive this to be trued, and even if it’s not, they are easily the most famous Falafel Joint in the entire city. No contest!

Joe’s Pizza



Along with Mamoun’s. Joe’s Pizza on Carmine Street is another Top List # 1 in all of New York City. Joe’s is well known as New York’s #1 favorite “Best Slice” (Pizza) in all of New York. And in a town that’s known as the undisputed Best Pizza in all of America, and is considered one of the Best Places on God’s Good Earth to get a Slice of Pizza, being known as The Best Slice Joint in the great City of New York is no small feat. 

Yes  Joe’s is a great Cheap Eat and one of the best deals in the city, with a slice going for $3 and two for $6, it’s easily in the parameters of what is considered a “Cheap Eat,” any meal that cost Ten Dollars or less, Joe’s does the trick and you’re cheap cheezy 2nd rate product, you’re getting what most people consider the best (not me) in the whole city.

Footnotes :

1)   Speaking of Cheezy, I’ve got to mention the .99 Cent Slice of Pizza. There are a couple within two blocks of Joe’s. There’s one north on 6th Avenue. A slice of Pizza for .99 cents. It uses cheap “Cheezy” Cheese. Hey it’s just a Buck, and for many two slices of Pizza for $6 is a bit dear, so these .99 cent slice joints do serve their purpose, and that’s to feed the less fortunate who can’t afford the 6 Dollars it would cost to get 2 slices of pizza, they get two for just $2, and for them it makes a Huge Difference. Basta!

2 )   If you notice that when I wrote that, “Most people consider Joe’s the Best Slice in the city (not Me), that is how I feel. It’s not that I don’t think they’re not good, they are. It’s just that I feel that the pizza at Joe’s is very good, even one of the Best, just that it’s not the # 1 single best, there are others. Joe’s pizza is very good, a bit over-rated, and definitely not the single best slice in New York. There are many others just as equally excellent as Joe’s. Basta.



Faicco’s Pork Store

Great Italian Hero Sandwiches and Meatball Parms. A bit expensive, but definitely worth it if you have the cash, I don’t. I could, but I make such great food for far less money, so I’m not going to throw $14 away on a single sandwich, when I can make four sandwiches for the same $14, and it would cost me about $60 to get four sandwiches at Faicco’s. Now don’t get me wrong I love the place. I love buying my  fresh Italian Sausage from them, along with Sopresseta and other Salumi products, tomatoes, pasta, olive oil, and cheese, but I make it myself at home, unlike many others for whom $14 for a sandwich is no problem, Faicco’s is great. They make one of the best Italian Sandwiches (along with Parisi’s) in all of New York City.

United States Postal Service Motto is Debunked

 
A Statue of Benjamin Franklin
 
The 1st Post Master General o The US Postal Service
 
Washington DC
 
 
 
“Neither Snow nor Rain nor Heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” This the famous unofficial Motto of The United States Postal Service has been Debunked not by Snow, nor Rain, Nor Gloom of Night, but the US Postal Service did not deliver mail in March of 2020, stopped by the Pandemic of the Coronavirus in the United States of America, thus debunking the famed motto of Mailmen (and women) as they have temporarily stopped delivering the mail. I myself haven’t gotten my mail in the past 4 days, and I didn’t even know it, no notification, no announcement through the media on any TV News program at all, but simply because I ran into a lady who lives in my building and told me she had just come from the Post Office ( Varick Street, New York NY) where she picked up her mail. I didn’t even know, and I would not have known if my neighbor hadn’t told me what was going on (no delivery of the US Mail). I’m really shocked that this has not been in the news. Why? It is quite a big story.
 
Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining at all, I’m just stating facts. There’s a lot of craziness and all sorts of life changes and adapting to a very different kind of life. “It’s a Pandemic,” so I understand that the Postal Service is not delivering the mail now. I’m just quite surprised that nobody told us. Seriously, what happened?
 
It was no big deal going to pick up my mail, just a 5 minute walk from my house to my local Post Office. I waited on line, got for about 10 minutes, gave the clerk my Drivers License as proof of identification. Then I waited about 6 minutes for the man to go find my mail and bring it back to me. Not too bad. And then it occurred to me that the famous US Mail motto, that Snow, Rain, nor Gloom of Night could keep them from delivering the mail, but Coronavirus and the pandemic of 2020 did. It’s now fact, the mail was not delivered. It’s quite historical? The day the mail didn’t get delivered, the Post Office and postal carriers were stopped from making their appointed rounds. Didn’t happen. No big deal. People often criticize the US Postal System, “I don’t know why? What the hell do they want.?” I for one have always been quite satisfied with their service. It’s excellent. Well, I think so anyway, and I still do, despite the fact that for the first time in my 50 plus years, they have not delivered the mail. They didn’t make their appointed rounds? So What, there’s a dam pandemic going on, we’ve all had to make adjustments, this is just one more. Not a big deal.
 
It is however a historical event. It’s historical and a big event at that, but far smaller than the bigger thing at hand, the Pandemic, but we’re gonna make it, we going to get thought this thing, and as Governor Cuomo said yesterday, “We’re gonna kick Corona’s Ass.” So I got my own mail? Big deal.
 
Basta!

Happy Valentines Day

“Be My Valentine”

 

 

Valentine’s Day (or Saint Valentine’s Day) is observed on February 14 each year. Today Valentine’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world, mostly in the West, although it remains a working day in all of them. The original “St. Valentine” was just a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saint named Valentinus. All the modern romantic connotations were added several centuries later by poets.

The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines”).

Modern Valentine’s Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.
