Food in NYC: Part 3

This is the final part of my food-adventures in New York City, I am on my way back to Berlin. Although the autumnal Brooklyn sun has been very good to us and the Berlin November weather is living up to its fame, I am quite okay with coming back. Also because I can go back to my normal eating habits and don’t feel pressured by a never-ending foursquare to-eat list. Thanks to organizing my schedule better than in the first days, I managed to cross quite some off in the last days, read about them here.
And for more, here’s the first and the second part of Food in NYC.

Discover This: Computer Chess

Long before the hipster there was the nerd who now, thanks to hipster culture and its appropriation of nerd codes and styles, seems to have become an extinct species. There was a time when “uncool” people wore horn-rimmed glasses and weird hairstyles unironically. The preferred domain of these nerd types was the world of computers and their codes consisted of zeros and ones. Nerds were outsiders and loners and it was easy to make fun of the fact that they were living in a parallel universe. Mumblecore director Andrew Bujalski now remembers the peak of 1980s nerd computer culture in his new film and has produced a little masterpiece of modern retro-history and ironic social observations.

Food in NYC: Part 1

I am in New York for two weeks and sadly, I haven’t yet managed to experience a food-revelation in the big city. I’ve had good food, very good, but nothing as mind-boggling as the Thai food I had in London, for instance. Maybe that’s because I haven’t (yet) laid my focus on Asian food over here. Nevertheless, this is the first part of my very good food experiences.
