MEAAAAT! MEAT, MEAT, MEAT! Ever since I stopped buying meat to save money on groceries, any sort of eating establishment with the word meat in the title lures me in like a mosquito to one of those mosquito zapping contraptions. I also really like deli sandwiches for some reason, so when I heard that the old school Italian folks at Graham Ave Meats & Deli make a great Italian hero, I knew I had to walk the six or so blocks over from my apartment to check it out.
The next step in my class is to create formal one paragraph proposal or plan for my idea. Matt Cutts, a Google employee, makes a point in this here blog post about how if you have some sort of irritation or frustration in your life, chances are others do too, and that it’s a great starting point for developing your idea. I couldn’t agree more. I think I have a basis for an idea down pat, but the question remains: where the hell to go from here?
I woke up all excited to go the Bronx yesterday morning, specifically to check out a jerk chicken place by Yankee Stadium. Unfortunately, after scanning Gothamist’s crime map for fun, the shooting that happened only several hours earlier a few blocks away from the restaurant made me reconsider. I then thought checking out the chicken parm hero at Torrisi Italian Specialities on Mulberry might be fun, but no: the Feast of San Gennaro put a damper on those plans.
It’s here! The first post! And, it doesn’t really have anything to do with food whatsoever. A misguided yet appropriate start.
Given that I haven’t had time to visit my first locale yet, I figure I should make this post, the first post of the week (I’m going to attempt to post 2-3 times a week, workload permitting), a further explanation as to why I’m doing this blog.
