Bartenders doing a back-to-back waltz pouring drinks, making cocktails, and swiping credit cards.

As my eyes, ears, and nose adjusted to this rather raucous environment off the cold dark midtown street I suddenly realized that I stepped into another world…

This place… it’s amazing. The food is like Italian food but without the sauce, but not really. And the vodka, they had that, too. Tony

The glimmering sheen on this Subway turkey is reminiscent of an oil-soaked duck in Louisiana.
Whoa. I had no idea that you could make vodka with the cranberry already built in. I’ve been doing in 2 steps my whole life! I’m such an idiot. Frank

So I said to the cop, "That car was on fire when I got here. And as for the kid's grandma? She shouldn't have mouthed off at me." True story.
