Deal Alert! Free Movie from Amazon!

Sorry mom and dad, but I’m willing to bet that after tonight’s New Year’s festivities, I will be severely hungover most of tomorrow.  And while it may not cure my hangover, I really enjoy laying on the couch, holding my stomach with aspirin in hand, screaming that “I’m not 100%” and watching a movie.


Tree is Hit or Miss

I went to Tree earlier in December for a nicer night out with a good friend from out of town. We decided on Tree because it was part of my beloved Diner’s Deck which was about to run out at the end of the month. Although the description sounded more romantic than platonic, we were […]

Deal Alert! Cheap Wings!

The one thing I miss about college is free wings and half priced drinks at Noah’s on Friday nights.  Luckily, our friend Jason at NYC Daily Deals informed us about some great wing specials that take place in the city.  While the wings aren’t free, they certainly come close.  Every Monday and Wednesday, Croxley’s […]

New Thai in the Hill

I really wanted to settle in last Tuesday with a big cheese pizza and Home Alone, but when I saw there was a new Thai place in the neighborhood, I couldn’t help but try it.  FUSE is a new Japanese/Thai spot here in Murray Hill on 2nd Ave between 34th and 35th.  Unfortunately, I […]

Deal Alert! Lunch Specials at Havana Central!

Wondering where to go on the cheap?  Check out Havana Central, a Cuban restaurant which has locations in Union Square, […]

Chinese and Unlimited Wine at the Cottage

Guest Post by Jenni Maier, Editor of the Post Grad Blog

I am probably the stingiest person I’ve ever met. I’m also probably the hungriest. I could eat 24 hours a day and I rarely turn down an offer to grab dinner. In order to avoid shelling out $20 for these dinners, I’m constantly […]

“If I Can Eat Steak and Listen to Jay-Z, I’m Crushing It”

After attending Cook. Eat. Drink. Live last month, I added a trip to Spanish Harlem to eat at Ricardo Steak House to my to-do list.  So when my roommate Al and I decided that we’d grab a steak dinner as our Christmas gift to each other, we decided to head uptown.

Now, before we […]

Deal Alert! Free Mac & Cheese on Saturday!

Deal Alert! BOGO Admission at Brooklyn Museum!

Editor’s note:  We just learned from one of our readers, Susan, that this museum actually offers suggested admission (shows you how much we get to BK sometimes).  So, basically, that means you pay what you want, as long as you don’t feel guilty about it.  Looking for other museums with suggested admission?  Check […]

Starting at noon, the Treats Truck will be giving away 1,000 cookies to patrons at 38th St. and 5th Avenue. Enjoy!
