In the grand tradition of having NYC all to myself (as the wife is out of town this weekend), I spent last night on the couch drinking beers, ordering Mexican food, and watching ESPN's documentary on Allen Iverson. Suffice it to say, last night was pretty awesome. I had five beers (two Sierra Dorado's and three McSorley's Black Irish Lagers) over the course of about seven hours. I mean not really much more to say about yesterday. Also, in another grand tradition, I'll give you some previews of some awesome posts I'm putting together. In addition to the African beers post, I'm currently compiling a list of all the different types of beers I've drank and all the bars I've been to so far. I don't know what I'm going to do with that but I thought it'd be interesting to put together. Project number two is a ranking, as it were, of my favorite bars in NYC. I might do this neighborhood by neighborhood, I might do it city wide. What I certainly won't do is borough by borough, because I can't think of any bar actually in Manhattan that would crack my top 10. Well, look forward to those. A third project I might do is compile a list of all thing things I said I would do here and didn't actually get around to doing. The first item on that list: compiling that list. How meta!
