OMG! Is it really that magical time of year again? You’re darn tootin’ it is. It’s National Popcorn Day! That’s right, today is some day that some marketing exec at some snack manufacturer dreamt up to boost popcorn sales. Celebrate good times, come on!
At Nachos NY, we continue our attempt to find good nachos at chain restaurants. I had a strong desire to hit some gophers with a foam hammer so Dave and Buster’s in Times Square it shall be. See, I am so dedicated to my craft that I not only dined at a chain restaurant/arcade but I went to Times Square.
As part of the book-writing process, we are going to a lot of meetings. We took a nacho-meeting with our editor, who finds us just darling, to newly opened Viktor & Spoils. Our evening started with each one of us needing directions to find the sign-less restaurant. One by one, we each found the door with the currency all over it and sat down.
Brooklyn trio Moon Hooch have been playing together in the New York subway since the summer of 2010. Since being banned from the Bedford L stop for causing “too many dance parties,” the band now calls the Union Square L stop home. Nachos NY will be giving away a pair of tickets to this Friday’s show.
Nachos NY has been a passion project for the past three years. Along the way, we’ve learned so much about our favorite food, nachos. We’ve also had a lot of fun hosting Guactaculars, Salsa Slams, Guac Rocks, nacho crawls and even El Grito (look that one up if you’re curious). We’ve gotten the opportunity to meet amazing people and work with amazing companies and now we’re taking the next step.
