After a very long drive crossing through Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey we finally made it to Brooklyn, NY yesterday around three in the afternoon. For a couple of small town people like Crystal and I, New York almost seems like a different world. I can’t say we’d ever want to live in this environment but it is safe to say we love visiting the big city. Working on a project like JealousBrother for such a long period of time has formed a strong working relationship as well as a great friendship between our web developer and us. Dennis and his wife were so kind to let Crystal and I invade their home and they taking the time to show us around New York City for the next several days.

Around seven o’clock we met up with Yuki (Dennis’s wife) for dinner at Rare bar and grill. For those of you who don’t know me very well I tend to be a bit cheap when it comes to everything except electronics and to spend $21 dollars on a burger was a huge leap for this penny pincher. 62  150x140 rarebar2 Our Second Trip to New York Started With Some Good Food and the Grand Central Station The restaurant itself which is also a bar was very loud and not typically a place I would go for a nice sit down meal but the fries and burgers were quite good. The burger I ate was the “Chef’s Special” which had kobe meat, huge slices of bacon, three types of cheeses, several types of lettuce, and was soaked in ajus prior to being cooked. For me the only question that comes to mind is, was it worth $21 dollars and here is how I responded to Dennis when he asked me that same question last night, “I wouldn’t buy it again but I would do it again for the first time.” I still don’t know if that makes any sense but it did to me when I said it. I guess it would have been easier to say I don’t regret giving it a try for $21 dollars but you wouldn’t catch my cheap ass buying it on a regular basis.

To sum things up, we had a wonderful first day here and look forward to what the next several days have in store. We plan on going to the “top of the rock” or “empire state building”, we’re going to go to the at least one of the many museums New York has to offer, Dillans candy store, possibly the Statue of liberty, ground zero of the World Trade Centers, and much more. I’ll try and publish a post each day of our visit.
