a little bit hot

Calientito opened right across the avenue at #141, but is worth a trip from anywhere.

I’ve been in for breakfast twice.

First, Eva served up pancakes, eggs and sausage.


This morning I ordered mangu (mashed plantains) with pickled onion, fried cheese and dominican salami.

With two soft, farm fresh eggs.

Are you kidding?

This stuff is delicious. And very affordable.

The neighborhood is already catching on.

Watch this space for the Calientito meal of the week, delivered (if you want) right to your door.

This is not gringo Dominican.

This is the real deal, prepared by an older Dominican lady.

Come very hungry. And!

The woman on the second floor approves.

I do, too. Bigtime. Comer.

strike while the iron is hot

Rock stars are notoriously fussy.

Everything’s perfect or they won’t go on.

GE engineers thought they had the solution.

Machined steel, hydraulics and computer wiring can be relied upon to put on a show, right?


Perhaps no. Not always.

The night I visited Union Square it was cold and the robots were on strike.

They probably have a very strong union.

unanticipated genius

initial public offering

There’s FBI

and CIA,


and NPR.

But nothing beats an open bar at Charlies place,

with PBR!


No apostrophe and instead, 
excellent, salty, russet fries.

Thank you Charlie!
