    I'll take them off your hands TRANC sorry it's not for you but glad you gave it a chance. I just got back from smoking a stick. I'm just trying as many as I can that are in my budget. the days of smoking >$15 sticks are over. I still have a slight buzz from the nicotine. It's great...

    my bro in law brought back an Opinel No. 9 from France. again, like most new knife purchases, I cut myself. Last time my brother brought back a cheap stiletto, I think he brought back a dozen or so. this was pre-TSA.

    Dealing with persistent Debt collector

    so they really do stick to this tactic thinking it will work? even when it's truly not the right person. I don't have any suggestions since I just don't answer my phone. Can you please keep us updated and what you did to finally get them to believe you that you're not the right person? good luck.

    Best New York Style Pizza in NYC?

    I'll join you for a nice slice at Patsy's in East Harlem. First Avenue and 117th street. I can't believe I've worked in that area for so long and haven't discovered that one of the best pizza places is in El Bario. don't worry it's a safe neighborhood. the only place that sells coal oven...

    Best New York Style Pizza in NYC?

    I'm impressed, like the poster above some people and forums take their pizza too seriously. I like that a few mentioned their local pizza place. I don't even know the name of mine, it's just the one on 9th ave and 53rd. just your ordinary great local pizza guy who's friendly, asks how ya doin...

    Whose side are you on: Conan or Leno?

    I'm too old for Conan and not old enough for Leno. I remember seeing Leno at The Bottom Line in the village when I was 17 or 18, he did a great clean set. back then it was much easier getting into clubs and bars if you're underaged. I don't think I was ID'ed once. (and the drinking age was 18)...

    I was hoping for a cat for Christmas but my brother couldn't make it up. he just adopted a bi-color Persian who's so sweet. He slept right next to me when I was down there for Thanksgiving, No cat breath! He was an abandoned cat in either an evicted home or a foreclosed home. neglected, his...

    Domino's Pizza changing its pizza

    I had it 2 weeks ago, not knowing their ad campaign. first thing I've noticed carrying it out was boy that's a lot of garlic. I like it. the sauce is less tangy but they may have overdid it with the herbs. yes, I know NYC has some of the best pizza places in the world but how many have a...

    barking dog in apartment complex: any recourse?

    I feel your pain. I live next to two tiny yapping dogs. you know the tiny ones that fit into a handbag. anyway, there's a clause in our lease that states excessive noise as a condition. and boy does our management company enforce it. I had my neighbor on the other side complain about my...

    Target scanned my driver's license

    never had my ID scanned for anything yet, no thanks, target. The house organic beer at Whole Foods is very good. 5.99 a six pack. all they did was ask for my birth date.

    Anyone ever buy a live chicken for food?

    Yes, quite often when I was young, there's still a few live poultry stores in NYC. yes, it tastes better than the processed stuff in the market if you've ever drove through Maryland and smelled something that's the Perdue farm. now could I tell the difference between same day kill and 2...

    The Official Cigar Thread

    My price range has been around $15 for a pack of 5 from JR cigars on 5th ave. the la aurora robustos were nice at that price. the wrapper aroma was lovely, hints of mocha, dark chocolate but smoking it was different. it was very mild, no harsh spicyness but very close to almost no flavor...

    The Diplomatico no. 2's were our go to cigar purchase. always brought a box back. I see the reviews for it are not stellar. they were always a good smoke when I bought them 10 years ago. nice balanced flavor, no bitterness, loads of smoke. wish I had some now. I just finished a couple of...

    In NYC, sitting in my apart bored out of my skull - any NYCer here?

    I forgot, do you have a pair of binoculars? almost every guy I know who lives in Manhattan has a pair and they're not for bird watching. the LES is especially good due to it's narrow streets and high turnover of apartments.

    In NYC, sitting in my apart bored out of my skull - any NYCer here?

    your company has a gym? I didn't know some NYC cos had those? thought it was just google. but Gym counts, it's something many city workers go to. you're preaching to the choir here. If I win the lottery I would get a pilot's license and move to Alaska. and vacation in Hawaii. that's if I...

    In NYC, sitting in my apart bored out of my skull - any NYCer here?

    I didn't know you are married, that changes things. I don't care for bars too, now that drinks are over $5. even dive bars. though I was in a dart league and went to bars all over the city. one thing about the city, people go "out" for the sake of going "out". if one doesn't go out, you're...

    In NYC, sitting in my apart bored out of my skull - any NYCer here?

    if you have cash you can have fun anywhere. since I don't, I'm taking a walk to Chinatown to get a banh mi sandwich for dinner and look for a cheap fanny pack. then walk home, take out the bike and have dinner at hudson river park with a book and a cigar afterwards. (maybe sneak in a beer, no...

    I may try those JR ultimates the next time I'm there. I'm almost done with my five pack of la auroras' robusto from JR cigars 5th ave. I liked the wrapper aroma, almost sweet coffee like. very well constructed and nice tight wrap and cap. not lumpy or veiny. Draw was easy, burned evenly all...
