  1. Have been stopping at the wholesale bakery for Balthazar located in Englewood NJ for 2 days. Wonderful breads plus amazing tarts which might be more like spectacular toppings the likes of which I’ve never had.

    Atlantic City, NJ

    I will be in Atlantic City in a few weeks and am looking for a nice restaurant with ambience (let's think romance). I have not been to AC in many years - Please help send me in thr right directions. Please no more than an hour drive if not in AC proper. Type of food doesn't matter, price doesn't matter but really want to avoid having dinner in front of a slot machine (This happened to me in Las Vegas two years ago was having a good overpriced tasting meal in Bradley Ogden's at Ceasers and kept hearing ding ding ding ding all night, the food was good just not memorable since two years later couldn't tell you one dish!).
  5. Oh my, Yogi Berra, an all-time great catcher in the big leagues, and an all-American icon for his many quotes and advertisements that featured him. Seeing comments here referencing that .... really depressed me. Yogi is an iconic American sports star, a beloved character, and what hit hardest on a personal level, was that Yogi has lived most of his life since he got to the Yankees in a Northern NJ town, near where I grew up. There was a fair bit of news about Yogi in my neck of the woods, and all of it was positive and beloved. Yogi's achievements in baseball are legendary and formidable. He ranks with the best of the best. The Yog played in 14 World Series and was on the winning side 10 times!!! That could be a personal record that might not be beat. Yogi was part of Yankee dynasties that helped him get there, but his presence on those teams helped the Yankees win so often. Here are some astonishing nuggets: He led the Yankees in RBI's 7 years in a row through 1955. Those were teams with Joe Dimaggio and Mickey Mantle, He was league MVP 3 times, and received MVP votes 14 years in a row, tied for 2nd behind all time leader Hank Aaron. He was a great player and had tremendous longevity. Yogi caught the famous perfect game in the 1956 World Series. He was a great contact hitter, and a notorious bad ball hitter all the same, being able to connect at pitches above his head, and being capable of golfing a ball thrown at his feet. When you review the reams of detailed statistics about his career there is a column of detail about his annual baseball salary each year. Yogi maxed out at $65,000/year in his playing career. Today the highest paid catchers make around $12-17/million/year, which comes to more per game than he earned in his highest salaried year. Not withstanding the way sports salaries have escalated I doubt baseball's best catchers today could hold Yogi's jock. He was excellent at both offense and defense. He is amazingly beloved in the NY region and among Yankee fans. Growing up his sons were noted athletes, two of whom made it into professional baseball and the NFL. One of my closest friends played on a noted regional Legion baseball team against one of Yogi's sons. As a kid that is simply thrilling. For such a lifelong humble guy he has that "Brooks Robinson" combination of baseball stardom and entirely admirable personal qualities. I truly hope he sticks around for quite a few more years. Here's to you, Yogi. "It ain't over till its over!!"
  6. Along with: * Winning the Rookie of the Year, Cy Young, and MVP awards * Playing in 3 different decades * Being one of surely only a few players to play in the Negro Leagues, Major Leagues, and Central League (Japan) Don Newcombe this evening threw out a ceremonial first pitch alongside Sandy Koufax.

    New Jersey Shore

    Mr P started his new job in Holmdel a few weeks ago, and reports the pickin's 're mighty slim up that way. Since he's too shy to post, I thought I'd ask where the man can get a decent dinner in that area. He'll be there one to three days a week for a while. Thanks.
  9. Frankly eating that many hot dogs in a day leaves me feeling very ill. If you are in the mood for a culinary adventure near the big apple, this excursion seems to be a real treat: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/25/dining/dog-ziggity-new-jerseys-own-hot-dogs.html My fave line from the article: ........"making a gut bomb of indescribable proportions"
  10. Did you know that if you type "site:donrockwell.com goya" into Google you get six pages of results mentioning the brand but no thread devoted to it? For reasons unclear even to me, that is about to change.

    Central Jersey, NJ

    Be careful of what you ask for - it may come true!! We're actually stopping off in Edison, NJ on our way to Montreal in a couple of weeks. Edison is just 4 miles away, across the river from New Brunswick. Maybe we can get together for a belated "going away" drink then!

    Hurricane Sandy Aftermath

    Well, I haven't see many people post about this, but mods, please feel free to shut this topic down, if you think it's too much. I thought it would be good to offer a topic to post about places, events, etc. fundraising or helping Hurricane Sandy victims. So far, I have been following Dana Cowin (@fwscout), Johnny Iuzzini (@Johnny_Iuzzini), and the #dineoutNYC for information. I also know that you can text to 90999 to Red Cross for a $10 donation. Any others?
