|11:25 am - LJ Invite: Thai food in Queens tonight|
BBQ pork, coconut curry khao soi, drunken noodles with pork
fried money bags, green mango salad
pad thai, soy sauce noodles with beef and broccoli, spring rolls
If you like great Thai food and/or would like to meet Jason/ink_ling while he’s in town, join us tonight at one of NYC’s best Thai restaurants, Sripraphai, just a short subway ride away on the 7 train.
You can check out the menu here. Most dishes are around $8, more for soft shell crab and whole fish.
We’re meeting there at 6:45. Just take the 7 train (which crosses all north-south subway lines in Manhattan) to the 61st St-Woodside stop, then walk forward four more blocks to Roosevelt & 65th. Srupraphai is on your left at 64-13 39th Ave, right where 65th St & 39th Ave converge at Roosevelt.
Comment here or at danbearnyc’s original post to let us know if you’re coming; if you arrive late you’ll likely find us on the beautiful and peaceful back patio.
|12:14 pm - Birthday party invite|
Thursday, July 30 I’m celebrating my birthday with another movie party with my LJ friends.
The movie is the riotously funny screwball comedy What’s Up, Doc? starring Ryan O’Neal, Barbara Streisand, Madeline Kahn, and Kenneth Mars, along with Austin Pendleton, Michael Murphy, John Hillerman, Randy Quaid, and M. Emmet Walsh, and at least half a dozen other character actors you’ll recognize. The movie made the American Film Institute’s Top 100 Comedies list, above Victor Victoria, Sleeper, and Beetlejuice!
The movie screens at 7:00 pm at Chelsea Cinemas at 260 West 23rd St (off Eighth Ave). Admission is only $7.50!
Afterwards – around 9:00 pm if you can only make that – we’ll head down the block to R.U.B. (Righteous Urban Barbecue) for some BBQ and desserts that include bacon chocolate chip cookies and deep-fried Oreos! Sandwiches run from $9-12 and BBQ platters are $12-$25.
Movie and dinner are dutch treat, so please no gifts – just your presence there! So far
Olli/ejo_mucare planning to come.
How about you?
