WHO Poll
Q: 2021/22 What competition should we prioritise this season?
a. The league is our bread & butter, so this year let's have a club sandwich
b. We're owed an FA Cup after Gerrard nicked our last one in 06, our name's on it in 22
c. A bye to the League Cup 3rd round gives us a good start, let's make it count
d. The Europa is our best ticket to the Champions League, this is the one
e. What's wrong with you, let's do the lot, has the quadruple ever been done

Tavern on the green for a special dinner was very good

Cheers for that. I might try and see the Rangers when we're there as they have a home game that week.

Went out in Manhattan and Williamsburg and don't remember paying more than $7-8 a pint. It seemed to be usually $5 for Bud or Bud Light. I'm not too arsed about "local brews" and generally just picked whatever lager i noticed first.

You'd pay roughly the same in London if you went out in the west end and shoreditch.

My point is its not the bottomless money pit rip-off that people seem to make it out to be. I know people who whinge about paying €9 for a beer in Amsterdam. Same thing.

Re: New york
I mentioned MOMA ... and The Met. Both excellent
Maybe because the Knicks are shit but when I was there a couple of years back was able to walk up to the MSG box office a couple of days before and get decent seats.

Re: New york
Bud lite then eh mashed....

$5.00 you say...

Tourist traps you say....

See the thing is mate.... the vast majority on here that have ever been to New York have and will do the touristy trappy things as ...well... because they are touristy... we stayed in Queens...well off the beaten track.. we ate at a pub and another diner... I didn't go near the bud lite but the local brews were $9 + your tip... Manhattan was yeah right up there... over the water in Brooklyn drinking coney island brew was $10 for a small glass...and in the yankee stadium it was $13 for a stella...

Maybe I should have looked for somewhere that served bud lite..

Re: New york
Lived there in 91, upper east side new York. 97 and Park for Leon movie set. Walk up to 116 for spanish Harlem on lex, El Barrio. Football with the locals at the murphy centre on east river drive, short walk, most evenings Europeans verses Latins. Girls are pretty good too. Good bars in the neighbourhood. Otherwise do the rip off tourist thing. Yours...

$5-7 a pint of Bud Lite in most places. That's on par with London prices. In some bars comes with a chaser, so thats even cheaper than London.

Same with Amsterdam or Rome or just about any other tourist city, its only a rip-off if you go to shit tourist traps full of thick cunts.

We went to see Alladin when we was over there. The Genie actor then came over to the Alladin in the West End. Big black dude.

Re: New york
If you don't go to shows in London, then don't go to shows on Broadway. If you want to go and see something "live" try and get free tickets for the tonight show

Re: New york
If you like shows rather than go to Broadway go to Ellen's Stardust Diner. All the waiting staff are out of work Broadway performers who break out in to song every 10/15mins. Its a bit gay but the Mrs loved it and the atmosphere is very good. Be prepared to queue to get in though.

Re: New york
Two best recent shows I seen were Book of Mormon and the Mighty `Hamilton`... both superb

Re: New york
Broadway shows equivalent to London - not better or worse.
However, your advantage is you can walk to one from where you are staying, it wont use up many of your holiday hours

`Also beer ain't that expensive`.

Hey mashed.... we ain't talking about a 6 pack of Pabst blue ribbon beer and drinking it on a bench in Central park...

Re: New york
Can't say for sure but id imagine a Broadway show is just a higher standard than in London.

Only show i've seen in London is the Book of Mormon (which is amazing btw) and i watched a few videos of the american show and the 2 lead guys that were in that are now pretty big TV and film stars in America

Yeah I know mate would love to see NY in the snow. Been once in Jan on honeymoon but wasnt too cold. We went Niagara after and it was snowing with lows of -10. We hardly get any proper winters anymore so it makes a change

Re: New york
Oh and another.

Are there touts outside MSG for Ice Hockey tickets, or will approaching one get you arrested/shot/hauled down the big house to bite on the rope when you get introduced to Bubba?

No sterotypical views here you understand.

Re: New york
Supplementary question here.

A few people have said 'go and see a Broadway show'.

Had a look and an awful lot seem to be the same as ones on in London.

Is there any additional value going to one there that you could see here, or is it just to be able to tick 'seen a show on Broadway' off the list?
