Day 5 to Day 8: Bison Burgers, $2 Beers and Brooklyn

Hey Boys and Girls!

Apologies for the silence of the last few days – they’ve simply flown past before I could even say “Sorry I’m English..!”

Sorry! I'm English....!

Sorry! I'm English....!

It’s been a bit of a wild ride of course it’s been great fun. I discovered a restaurant called Bareburger where they serve their burgers with a choice of the usual hamburger meat, or one could get a bison or ostrich meat. Hmmmm….delicious! Check out the menu here.

Bareburger is the best!

Over on 2nd Avenue and 5th, it is one of the best burgers and the best fries I had eaten in a long long time….! Talking of 2nd Avenue, a dear friend of mine made me discover the wonders of the New York City Dive Bar on Saturday Evening.

What’s a dive bar you may ask? A dive bar is an American institution, where people go to be in a rotten establishment, and the drinks are incredibly cheap and the clientele is less than salubrious, let alone sober. The Karpaty Pub is a perfect example of this, where PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon) beer is served at $2 a pint or $8 a pitcher….awesome!!

At $2 a pint, you just can't go wrong!

Then the weekend was finished off with a bit of sightseeing in Brooklyn where yours truly got totally lost. It was lovely though and very character-building.

You gotta love the New Yorkers...!

In the end I made it back to Manhattan so all ended well!

Hugs and Kisses
