Hump Day Food + Drink Porn!

I’m admittedly a bit swamped right now, so today we’re going to take a break from perfume and makeup for some awesome NYC food and drink pictures!
My main goal is to really make you jealous of my life, maybe. 
This past weekend was a seriously gluttonous one for me. I spent last Thursday with my childhood best friend @ThatsWatVSaid at Dinosaur BBQ. If you haven’t heard about Dinosaur BBQ, you’re missing out. Afterwards, we had dessert at Ben and Jerry's
(The garlic chipotle wings traumatized V.)



(BLT with fried green tomatoes + mac  and cheese)



(My Cuban sandwich with french fries)



(My Dutzi clutch, my Lemonade Sorbet, V's Half-Baked Fro-Yo)
Friday afternoon I spent with my good friend from college, @Roxie_Hartless. We spent our day on NYU’s campus, reminiscing and stuffing our faces at Silver Spurs, a burger joint famous for their massive, massive burgers. 


(Ms. R and her huge burger with waffle fries)

(My Cajun-seasoned fries with chili, mozzarella, and monterrey jack cheeses)
The rest of the weekend, I spent with Ilusionisto. When he’s in town, we go hard - and is there nothing better than watching a cute boy eat? I think not.  Saturday night was spent at Fatty Crab’s Upper West Side location. We ate so quickly that I couldn’t snap any food pictures, but I managed to get a picture of my cocktail for Lexi: this is a 36 Chambers (Silver Tequila, Yuzu Juice, Clover Honey Syrup, and Creme de Violette), and good lord, was it delicious - and strong!


(This drink is not for the faint of heart, and neither is the boy.)

Sunday evening, Ilusionisto and I went to Dinosaur BBQ (I know, BBQ twice in one weekend?!), and um...well, it was pretty terrible/terribly awesome. Don’t ever drink a ton of Dogfish 90 Minute IPA, because in your drunken haze you will think that you’re capable of eating pretty much the entire menu at Dinosaur. EEK! 
(The infamous garlic chipotle wings + a ton of Dogfish 90 Minute IPA)

(My ever-present Cuban with mashed sweet potatoes and mac and cheese)

(His Churrasco Chicken club with mashed sweet potatoes and mac and cheese)

(See the look on his face? HA! That's the look of contentment mixed with disgust.)
So, what debauchery have you all been up to lately? Bonus points if your debauchery is food + drink related!

Sweet Mary Mother of God, how did I never go to Dinosaur when I was living in NYC?! I am so hungry and so insanely jealous of all that food. Me. Want. Now!

PerilouslyPale said...

WOW!! I think that weekend might kill me! I want that 36 Chambers! mmmm

Joey said...

Jean, I am NOT SURE. Dinosaur is really far uptown and on Riverside, so it's a bit of a trip. Luckily for me, I live a block away from it! =D

Joey said...

Christa, that 36 Chambers was so good. It's one of my favorite cocktails in NYC, and for good reason.

Girl, you can never have enough BBQ and Booze in a weekend!

Yes, my 36yr old metabolism is jealous of yours!

Joey said...

Lexi, my metabolism hates me! Trust me, I don't burn it off fast enough - I'm jealous of the boy's metabolism! He's rail-thin despite my constant attempts at fattening him up.

Morenita Lokita said...

You succeeded...I am jealous Lol

Joey said...

Haha! I will get you a burger if you are ever around =) xo

Elvira said...

Holy SH!T I'm so hungry right now and my lame a$$ dinner of pasta w/ red sauce looks like dog food in comparison.

Joey said...

Elvira, I have done my job! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Joey, I,ve been looking forward to this post. We have a TV show here called Masterchef, its season is finished now, but they went to NYC and cooked in some restaurants there and toured some others. It was my fav. episode of the series. Living here at the end of the world, I can only dream :) We do however, have superb food and wine here..

Joey said...

Sharryn, I'm so glad you enjoyed my photos! Tomorrow I'm plotting a special dessert trip (as inspired by Nathan Branch), so we'll see if some of my photos end up here on the blog. How about we trade places for a week? I'm dying to visit your side of the world xoxo
