We don't generally have many OT threads going and try to keep them in check. Threads like this one are great for random OT questions and discussion.

What kind of restaurant are you looking for? Something fancy, or just some good hardy local food?

Brooklyn and Queens have a TON of great old school Italian places to eat.

Long Island has more pricier but more classy and great for "Date Night" type places. Definitely more homey than the ones in Manhattan.

Great Neck in Long Island has some GREAT options.

I've been to the Blue Smoke on 27th St. and loved it. It's a fun and delicious way to have a casual dinner - but way way too messy for a hot date.

So, the trip to DC seems like it's going to happen. Am I a mad man if I catch a train into Manhattan to catch a Knicks game, and then train back out to DC all without sleeping? It has to happen. Can't wait for the schedule to drop. I'll be savage if we're not at home.

I know guys who go to DC from NYC and come back in the same day. If you want to save some time, use the Acela - it's the faster train, by far. The regular Amtrak makes all local stops.

Michael Jordan himself recently said Kawhi is the best 2 way player in the NBA at this time. Maybe he needs to defer to the ratings, too. :lol:

hey, so does anyone here play poker online?

i know it's not technically legal in the NY, but does running your account through paypal negate that whole wording of being legal or not?

if it is, can i use my VPN to play?

SO, it looks like the Knicks are at home Nov 1st vs the Rockets. I'm going to try to get into the city to possibly see Melo's first game back (will be just outside of DC that week). Anybody have season tickets that they sell? Not much on Stubhub yet and singletickets aren't up yet to buy direct.
