Last night a few of us got together to celebrate a friend's birthday. We'd been planning for months! So yesterday was the day to do it. We had dinner at a place called Republic. Pan-Asian, mostly noodle dishes. I'm afraid mine was a little bland at best. I had ordered the tofu udon and I usually like the udon soups especially with vegetable tempura. But this one, not so great. I did also try the tofu appetizer which was pretty good. It had a nice spicy peanut sauce that came with it. I will still go there another time to try out some of their other menu items. The place itself was nice so I recommend to anyone visiting.
Next we went over to Max Brenner Chocolate by the Bald Man which was quite an experiance. Who doesn't love chocolate? This restaurant offers all things chocolate and chocolate drinks. Hot, cold, frozen, any way you like. They do have other food items, but you want to come here for their chocolate "dishes." You have to know that I've never made smores before. So we ordered smores and some other stuff. The smores was for two but they give you plenty for at least four people. We had a blast here and stayed for quite a while. Nice atmosphere and a must for anyone visiting New York City.
Next we went across the street over to Virgin Megastore and I bought this.
I remember Kids In The Hall when they first started showing it on HBO. Funny stuff. Canada's version of Saturday Night Live and created by SNL'S Lorne Michaels. Lots of drag and all the funny characters like the "I'm crushing your head" guy, Cabbagehead and my favorite, Buddy Coles. I don't find every single sketches to be all that funny. But for the most part, there are some pretty good ones enough for this to be of a worthy purchase. They way they do drag alone is worth it. Sketch comedy these days are not so funny so I'm glad these are around for us to go back to when sketch was really funny. I would also like to get some of SCTV stuff as well. Remember that one? What about FRIDAYS? Where we first saw Michael Richards of Seinfeld fame.
