Steph Currying Ur Mind

YO have you been to Fuku? NO?? what the fuku u been doing man??? It’s THE chicken event of the year, HUGE. They even have daiquiris, the turn up juice of 2015. I mean, if you’ve been vacationing at like Busch Gardens or something, I get it. Real talk, have you ever looked in a gift shop at a theme park? Like, really looked?? YO, there are some super super come ups to be had. My sisters business partner got this FUEEEEGO hat at SEAWORLD. Like, it’s this massive straw hat thing, no taco bell. It’s chic de la chic. We’ll be cruising Bergdorf, getting lunch at Lure, in MEGA meetings, and without fail, everywhere, people will be like, yo fam, please please tell me where you got that super chic hat. I aspire to be as chic and I need this fire hat to achieve such goals. Meanwhile I’m standing there humming the national anthem to myself to honor the soon to be fallen soldiers that will be anyones mind when the “It’s from Seawolrd” line rolls off my dudes tongue. Five gun salute yo. Your mind was just Steph Curried. RIP 

Fuku

Tip: don’t get the fries, they’re trash. Get the side salad instead

Tip: if hungry, 2 sandwiches. They’re so good you’ll want it.

Tip: Obviously you’re going to want the OFF MENU version of this sandwich called the Koreano. It’s basically the same sandwich, with the addition of julienne daikon radish. It’s dope and I prefer it. This version is $9. 

Tip: 11-4 only rn

Tip: there will be a line, but it moves super fast.

Pricing: look at the picture yo ☝🏼

When to come here: when you living that thug life and need rap, chicken, and ready to be turnt on daiquiris.

Always Get Bagels with Deon

I really really love bagels. I remember when I was a kid/I am still a kid, I’d eat approximately 3 bagels for breakfast, toasted with butter and cream cheese. Gotta do both bc its gluttonous like Jabba the Hut, who in case you don’t know ‘was one of the galaxy’s most powerful gangsters’ - google. I still occasionally eat tons of bagels, but everyone tells me it’s going to catch up to me one day, which freaks me out. I did lose 5 LBS on this bagel diet tho. I sort of forgot what I was going to say but bagels are cool and Tompkins Square bagels makes some of the best. They also have this french toast bagel and RAINBOW birthday cream cheese. It’s the perfect place to grab breakfast on a Sunday with your gay friend Deon. Always get bagels with Deon.

Tompkins Square Bagels

Tip: there’s always a wait and it’s cash only. That’s how you know this place is bomb bc I hate waits and cash. I wouldn’t do you like that famalam.

Tip: breakfast sandwiches are fire. cop a few

Tip: birthday cake cream cheese is really an experience. 

When to come here: idk when else you’re eating bagels outside of breakfast but that’s really the only time I recommend coming here tbh.

Never Making Eye Contact with Susan

I love the east village. It’s so neighborhoody without being lame. Like, I don’t want that life where I’m walking down the street and have to wave to my neighbor Jim while he’s mowing his lawn for the 3rd time that day, or ever make eye contact with Susan each morning at 7am while she’s grabbing her paper. The EV manages that cool low key life, like, I know you and wattup without making me nauseous like those neighborhood ‘block parties’. Because my ideal day is watching a ton of kids ride plastic tractors and poop on slip n slides while I’m being fed numerous Costco quality hotdogs and pies. Barnyard is rad, they know pretty much everyones name, and have dope cheese. The owner cruised by while I was there and she was like, I’m selling puppies do you want one. So to sum this up, I bought some cheese, had an amazing meatball sub and played with 9 newborn french bulldogs.

Barnyard Cheese

Tip: the cuban sandwich is crazy and they’re always sold out of it so I guess get there early or something.

Tip: meatballs are home made and doooope.

Tip: side of chipotle mayo no matter what

When to come here: lunch ideally, but not on an inferno like day like yesterday. AC isn’t woke like that. Ideal for picnic situation. Sandwich and cheese, and hit the owners other shop brix around the corner for the wine tho.
