Party Train: Music, Muzik and Muzak

Hi friends and various people whom I choose to email regardless of whether you’ve met me or even want the weekly spam:

Michael Jackson is cancelled. Mama is not happy. Speaking of MJ, have kids? Get a peekaru. Or don’t. These kids look SO uncomfortable:

Atlantic City is wonderful… Like, where else can you find a pregnant hooters waitress? Oh and to anyone who thinks their wings are delicious, my question to you is, do you wring the grease out of them before you eat or just hope that you don’t have a heart attack? Like, superdoubleick.

To my eternal regret, no chicken tic tac toe in the Tropicana – apparently I am 9 years too late for that. Thankfully there were enough open bars – and spontaneously occurring synchronized dances – to drown/forget my sorrows.

Yours in molten hot lava dance parties,

Sullivans – Amazing swingin’ happy hour on Thursdays and Sundays. Try the burger. Seriously. It might be the best burger I’ve had and its $5
Tiff’s Treats: Ok I don’t even really like cookies. These are amazing.
M & T Supermarket: This place smells like dead fish butt. That said, you can get really weird stuff there. All asian, all the time. Including those crazy rice hats, live catfish, and a gigantic golden Buddha.
McCormick & Schmick’s HH: Not new but still amazing. Calamari, kobe sliders, roasted garlic, chicken teriyaki wings, crème brulee… all under $5. It’s like mecca – my most favorite website ever for art and purses and one of a kind whatnots
