Yummy things in NYC I should try?
May. 27th, 2008 @ 09:15 pm
I should be in New York City next week for MoCCA, and I would appreciate if anybody could tell me yummy things I can eat while I'm there!
I'll be in the Manhattan area, and I probably won't leave it, so take that in mind before suggesting!
Frankly, I've never even had a bagel, so I assume anything or place you suggest will be new to me! Hot dog vendors, pastry shops, pizza parlors, and sammiches... Hmmm, sammiches! X3
PS: How badly will they hurt me if I enter a burger parlor while in US and say "I can has cheezburger?" XP
If there's a Sprinkles cupcakes place nearby (and I think there is) you should check it out -- they're awesome. :)
Do they sell ice cream too? There are a few places called sprinkles in NYC, but the main site says it's "coming soon"?
Hrm. Yeah, according to the site, the NY location is coming soon... http://www.sprinklescupcakes.com/
Hmm. Let me ask one of my friends who lived in NY where the cupcake place is that she said was phenomenal. I'll get back to you. :)
My friend said Magnolia Bakery was one (already mentioned below: www.magnoliabakery.com) and the other was Billy's Bakery (www.billysbakerynyc.com)

Hot dogs! Hot dogs are delicious! If you go to the metropolitan museum they've got delicious hotdogs in their hotdog stands.
A bit pricey, but still delicious.
And I'm pretty sure they'll be like '...okay w/e.' and give you a cheeseburger. XD
How much is pricey? 10 dollars?
I know New York is an expensive city, but I hear I can find cheap good food too! :3
gotta get yourself a slice of new york pizza - its like the law or something when you come here [I just had a cheese slice yummmy, very filling and only $2]. Rice to riches is near the puck building where MoCCA is on [you need to like rice pudding to eat there cus thats all they do] Theres a few nice diners worth checking like Vaselkas [spelled totally wrong] and round the clock.
Apparently midtown Manhattan more eateries than I'll even need! I'm pretty close to Little Italy Pizza and other tasty places! :3
PS: Do you have any news on comic shop thing on Friday? And do you know anything about the special event for MoCCA atendees that night? ^^;
Theres a bunch of stuff on the friday night - Jason is doing a signing out at Rocket ship and art spiegelman, gary panter, hope larson and bunch of others are doing a talk at NYU so I'm divided over which I want to go to - could always hit the start of one and end of the other.
I don't plan very far ahead honey, Mal is coming Thursday evening and I was just going to play everything by ear. I can give you my Cell number to get in touch.
Hmm, isn't there some sort of get together like what you did for the UK thing?
I arrive on Wednesday evening and I have no idea what I'm doing Thursday! I'm about 20 minutes away from great eateries, game stores and even a cinema, but I have no idea what I'll be doing yet! XD
usually theres a breif thing at the MoCCA gallery were exhibitors can pick up their badges on the friday night. As far as I know the bigger get together will be Saturday night. We usually get food at the scary indian place then meet people at pub.
I'll email you my cell number - I'll be printing all day thursday then going to met mal at airport then most likely heading for food/drinks.
Oh, that must be what I was thinking of!
I'll send you an SMS when I get it so you'll get mine! I could join you if it's not too late, I'm not that terrified of NYC, but NYC by night... ^_^;
EDIT: I'll just email you mine number too, OK?Edited at 2008-05-29 03:39 pm (UTC)
If you go to an american burger place, you're pretty much guaranteed death no matter what you say.As long as it's mcdonalds, that is...
I was going to toss out Rice to Riches too.
I think I'm going to make a point of bringing my girl there if circumstances don't prevent her coming on Sunday.
It's really an experience...
You have my # right? Or have you set yourself to hang with specific Indie comics folks?
I'm currently free Saturday to hang.
Aw man! I thought I replied to this one! Sorry about that! ^_^;
I just found out that midtown Manhattan more eateries that you can shake a cat at! WOW! I don't have enough appetite to eat all I want to! D:
No, I don't have your number, I know I should be hanging out with some friends on Friday and isn't there some event on Friday night for MoCCA attendees? I'm not sure they'll let me come in though...
I have no idea what I'll be doing Saturday apart from MoCCA that is, I assume I'll make a trip in the morning, have lunch and return?
As of this moment, I'm still making plans...
