  1. Wow!! An increase of $25 for the fast pass! I have 5 people that we are going with, but my guess is that $200 in food will be enough. To avoid buying 3 passes, does anyone not use the guest pass? I'd be willing to buy it off someone. I guess I can also buy a third pass and sell the pass that is redeemable for food and keep the companion for myself. If anyone doesn't need the companion pass let me know,
  2. They are come in from Penn Station. Does this help at all? Is there some other place that stands out where we should go for lunch? They are coming from upstate and will be in NYC for the first time.
  3. I realize that is a rough place to get something good. What is the closest pizza place that serves great pizza? Even if we need to leave this area.
  4. I have some friends who are visiting the city and are doing the Times Square, 5th Ave, Christmas Tree circuit. They want to have some good pizza. Are there any good pizza places in these neighborhoods? They also want to find place to have a drink. Can anyone recommend a place for us to grab a slice and also a separate place to get a cocktail?
  5. Your tip percentage shouldn't change based on the amount of the bill.
  6. Are there any other cigar bars in the area? It doesn't have to be in the east village.
  7. We were actually planning on going to Velvet Cigar Lounge after dinner. There will only be five of us so we won't need to rent the entire lounge. I have never been there before so I don't really know what to expect. I think it's byob so hopefully there won't be an issue with having a minor.
  8. The minor will not be drinking or attempting to drink anything with alcohol. These are not my intentions. This is for a bachelor party where we will be eating at Momofuku Ssam and afterwards those of us that are of age were hoping to get a drink somewhere else. The plan is basically go to Ssam, smoke a cigar at a cigar lounge and get a night cap at a different bar/restaurant. I wasn't sure of the whole drinking thing and a minor.
  9. I will be in NYC in May with a few friends. My 18-year-old brother will be with us. The rest of us are 27-30. Will any of the better drink places let us in with an underage person? We were thinking PDT or D&C. If not, does anyone know a place that will let an 18-year-old in to have a coke? I know he can't sit at the bar. I will call both places later today to confirm.
  10. I was at a restaurant last night and tried a glass of Highland Park 18. That is some tasty stuff. I was going to buy a bottle but I figured as a newbie I would stay with the 12 year and not spend the $75 on the 18. So, I have a new bottle of Highland Park 12 year that I will try later tonight.
  11. I just finished my bottle of Cragganmore 12 Year single malt. I am new to drinking scotch and I want to pick up a new bottle to try. What do you recommend? I did like the Cragganmore, so I guess something similar. I want to try as many as possible to find exactly what I like/dislike. I guess $50 +/- a few bucks. Is it possible that the nose changed on this scotch? It seemed as if the last glass had a butterscotch smell that I did not remember in previous glasses.
  12. This is probably who you were thinking of. Although I am not sure about those prices. Japanese Knife Shapening
  13. I'm gonna be in Philly next Tuesday for work and I need a place where I can get some good pasta for a solo diner. I am training for the NYC Marathon and I am in Carbo-Load mode. I am going to be there alone so preferably a place where I can dine at a bar. I'm looking for good, fresh, possibly home-made pasta and red sauce.
  14. I going to see Norm at Caroline's tonight and I was looking for suggestions for a place to eat dinner after the show. I don't really care what type of cuisine as long as it is tasty. I would prefer something in walking distance and nothing too expensive. I would guess around $30ish per person, there will be three of us. I know there are a ton of places being in Times Square, I just want to go to one of the better ones. Caroline's Comedy Club Broadway between 49th & 50th
  15. Aburiya Kinosuke & Sugiyama look really good. How is the ambiance? Are they regular sit down restaurants? My fiance has always wanted to go to a place where you sit on the floor or even the tables that are recessed into the floor. We don't to skimp on the food.
