16 Handles, Fro-Yo with a twist.

30 Sep

I love the frozen yogurt fad that is taking over the city. It is everywhere. You have Yolato, down the block from Pinkberry, and across the street from Red Mango. And they all seem to have the same equation; choose your flavor, choose a crunchy cereal, fruit, or sweet topping, and pay a ridiculous price. I don’t feel so guilty eating it because of all the protein, probiotics, and non-fat goodness, but I do hate the elevated prices.

However last night, as I was on the east side, I ran into 16 Handles, a DIY frozen yogurt bar that in my opinion competes very well with the other chains. You can mix and match any flavor of yogurt, and any topping you want. And they have my beloved Mochi topping, and a huge buffet bar of choices that I could have gotten jiggy with. Granted, the price is still high, but being able to get your hands in there and create a Fro-Yo masterpiece is a great perk.

16 Handles is located at 153 2nd Avenue (between 9 and 10).

Oh my lord! Only getting your passport one year ago doesn’t give you world experience (whether you have “read books” or not), and seeing Russia from your house doesn’t make you an expert on foreign policy. Just because I can see the moon from my apartment window, that doesn’t make me an astronaut!!! I live in Brooklyn, in a neighborhood predominantly West African, does that create a vast understanding in me of the foreign policies of those countries? I don’t think so…

Some great quotes from the interview—

“Well it certainly does, because our next-door neighbors are foreign countries, their in the state that I am the executive of.”

“as Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America, where do they go? Its Alaska!”

“I’m not lookin’ at poll numbers..” Well, you should be.

“I’ll try to find ya some and I’ll bring ’em to ya…” Yea, right.

“It is obvious to me, who the good guys are and who the bad guys are in this one…”

Pt I



A parody worth watching…

Ugly Betty shot taking over 28th St.

26 Sep

So, in the show Ugly Betty, which premiered last night, Miss B gets an unrealistically big dumpy apartment in the Flower District on 28th Street. Just so happens the place is adjacent to my work building. So I get to walk through amazing catered food, bored-looking PAs, and miscellaneous obstacles that litter 28th street during shooting.
