Street Stories - Starbucks in Astor Place

custom_1240587773539_sbuxI had the ultimate Starbucks experience in the Starbucks at Astor Place.  AKA the CRAZIEST Starbucks in the WORLD.   I met my friend Kelly there to write.  We wanted the ultimate location where we could park our asses for a few hours, and write without any unnecessary distractions. So naturally in search for serenity, tranquility, and calmness we picked the largest, craziest Starbucks in New York City.

It was 11am, and we sat down in what seemed like a secure comfy nook off the beaten path. It appeared to be a safe place for our ideas to run wild and be free. Kelly got up to order our drinks while I saved our seats. As I looked out the window marveling on what a glorious day is was outside, I looked over and noticed a homeless man sitting at the table next to me. No big deal, he’s not the only one in this establishment who is without a home. And he was actually a clean and fashionable homeless man, with a nice down jacket for the winter (with feathers sticking out of large holes masked with duct tape), form fitting pants (safety pinned together all the way up the sides but hey, he was still wearing pants), and lots of Duane Reade Bags with god knows what in them. I liked his look. His smell not so much... but there was something about him....

Chuck E Cheese Yelp Review

This is a real Yelp review for a Chuck E Cheese in Long Island City, New York.  The writer gave this particular Chuck E cheese 2 stars:
"Something smells foul at the Northern Blvd. Chuck E. Cheese, and this time, it's not the food.  But much like the pizza that the chain was founded upon, the dinner theater's latest stage show is bland, cheesy, and hard to swallow.

The latest production, aptly entitled "The Pizza Party Mystery", fails spectacularly at almost every level, with an astonishingly predictable plot that is only rivaled in it's impotence by the ineffectual and stilted performances of nearly every member of the cast.

This theatrical debacle begins in the house of the protagonist, Chuck E. Cheese, where we learn that he and his company are about to celebrate Cheese's birthday with a pizza party.  All are in high spirits at the prospect of the impending feast.  Tired and hackneyed jokes are exchanged between the party guests to little comedic effect.

The character "Pasqually", a shamefully stereotypical Italian chef, and "Mr. Munch", who appeared to be a keyboard-playing monster of some kind, (it's never really established) act as the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of the production, providing numerous tedious knock-knock jokes and lame puns, almost all of which revolve around the subject of pizza.

So, while "Pizza Party Mystery" has little chance of entering the pantheon of theatrical classics, a few bright spots were achieved in spite of, not because of the writing; and the salad bar was all you can eat."

DUDE.  COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
