Italian place on Brighton Ave. This place is as good as most of the North End Trattorias, and when you add in the cost, it puts most of them to shame. I did spot this three story wonderful bike shop on the same street. It reminded me of the shops in Austria and Germany whree I did lots of drooling when I walked in. Just like this place. Three floors of bikes and stuff. The trek 520's really got my attention. Except for the $13000 bike, most were priced very nicely, and the 520 was a few hundred under the MSRP.
Cars.com got a call. The prospect came by the house, made an offer and we had a deal. The new Mini is big. Actually they called it an SUV at the dealer. Wifey bought this car sight unseen and got one of the first ones shipped to the US from Germany. Going over all the electronics with the sales agent felt and looked an awful lot like a pre flight check for a jet. It's going to take a bit of studying and playing around to get to know all the features.
I have a strong feeling that when the old mini is being driven away, wifey may shed some tears. She really loves that car. Her baby she calls it.
It also looks like we got into the NYC Five Boroughs ride in May. The 32,000 spots sold out in one day. At $75 bucks a pop, that's a chunk of change if I say so myself. But, it's also a deal for what you get and how it's organized.
