Looking for a really fun way to spend your Saturday or Sunday morning? Head on down to Hooters at 155 West 33rd Street, for brunch. From the outside the restaurant doesn’t look like much, but once upstairs views of Madison Square Garden delight, along with numerous TV screens. Looking to watch the games in style? This is the place for you. We had a blast watching the finale of The World Cup. Go France!
Another plus to Hooters, is when you go upstairs you can see into the kitchen which is so clean and organized. It lets you know your meal is in good hands.
Starting off with cocktail, my guest and I enjoyed a refreshing peach bellini’s, as well as a savory healthy poured Bloody Mary (with a garnish of bacon). Want to really have a fun time? For just $24.99, you can get unlimited glasses from 11:30 to 2:30. Not bad when you consider a single drink is around $14. You can also get mimosas, red or white sangria, and draft pints of Budweiser, Bud Light, Miller Light and Coors Light.
Your choice for brunch is the highly recommended fried chicken and waffles ($12.99), a generous lightly breaded chicken breast with a waffle that taste more like a really airy cake served with tater tots or fries. With every dish you have a mound of delicious tots. Order the tots, as they are really perfectly done.
The jalapeño grilled cheese on Texas toast ($10.99) is a cheese lovers delight, with about 6- 8 oz of Wisconsin Cheddar. The bread tastes homemade and is super think.
We also tried the Double Decker Applewood Smoked Bacon BLT (8.99). The bacon was out of this world and their was plenty of it. Served on the same Texas toast, this is one over the top BLT.
Other options are two biscuit sandwiches, one with bacon, egg and cheese and the other is with fried-chicken, both $6.99. You can top your chicken with a large choice of different wings sauces from the regular menu: Original BBQ, Medium BBQ, Honey BBQ, Hot BBQ, Honey Thai Chili Pepper, Naked Blackened, Teriyaki, Daytona Beach, Caribbean Jerk, Chipotle Garlic, Medium, Hot, Three Mile Island, and 911.
With 450-locations, this chain restaurant entertains gorgeous men, families and girls looking to have a good time. The servers, are all like the girl next store with friendly, cheerful attitudes and personalities that make you feel well taken care of.
The brunch is available Saturday and Sundays. This summer brunch goes until Labor Day.
After the brunch we headed to Jacks, The Manhattan Mall and Macy’s. It really was the perfect Sunday!

Rosie O’Grady’s To Shut Down
COVID takes down another victim. Rosie O’Grady’s, located on 7th Avenue and West 52nd Street along with its event space, Manhattan Manor, will shut its doors on July 1st. For over 43 years the steak and seafood restaurant was a favorite of theatre goers. Owner Mike Carty rent of over $3 million per year as a significant burden has made it impossible to sustain business operations. Carty’s has also made it clear that he plans to re-open the establishment somewhere else.
Neil Diamond, who was a customer for over two decades, stated “It honestly broke my heart.”
SL Green and Carty had been in a rent dispute that went to arbitration. The panel ruled in SL Green’s favor, who plans on seeking another tenant for the space.

From the velvety smoothness of nitro cold brew to the visually appealing dalgona coffee, there’s something to tantalize everyone’s palate.
This article will discuss the most talked-about coffee developments of 2023.
Artisanal cold brew
Cold brew has been steadily gaining popularity in recent years, and in 2023, we are witnessing a surge in artisanal cold brew offerings. Crafted with meticulous care, this brewing method produces a smooth and rich coffee concentrate, perfect for beating the summer heat.
Artisanal cold brew takes the concept a step further by infusing unique flavors like lavender, cinnamon, or even citrus fruits into the brewing process. Mystic Monk Coffee’s “Coffee of the Month” is highly recommended for those desiring to experience these distinct flavors. The result is a refreshing and tantalizing beverage that will make your taste buds dance with delight.
Nitro cold brew
Nitro cold brew is a type of coffee that undergoes a special infusion process with nitrogen gas, resulting in a remarkably smooth and creamy texture. It is served on tap, similar to a refreshing pint of beer. The nitrogen infusion creates tiny bubbles that lend the coffee a rich, velvety mouthfeel.
Dalgona coffee took the world by storm in 2020, and its popularity continues to flourish in 2023. This whipped coffee delight is created by mixing instant coffee, sugar, and hot water together until it transforms into a light and frothy concoction. The result is a beautifully layered beverage that can be enjoyed either hot or cold.
Mushroom coffee is a delightful blend of ground coffee beans and medicinal mushrooms, such as reishi or lion’s mane. These mushrooms are renowned for their potential health benefits, including immune-boosting properties, enhanced focus, and stress reduction.
In addition to the natural energizing effects of coffee, mushroom coffee provides additional health perks. By incorporating mushrooms into your coffee routine, you can relish the taste and the potential health advantages.
Coffee cocktails have been making waves as more and more people explore the fascinating intersection of coffee and mixology. These creative concoctions blend the rich flavors of coffee with spirits, liqueurs, and other ingredients to create unique and indulgent drinks.
As the demand for coffee continues to rise, it is crucial to prioritize sustainability in the coffee industry. Sustainable coffee practices ensure that coffee is grown and harvested in an environmentally and socially responsible manner, considering factors such as biodiversity conservation, fair wages for farmers, and reducing chemical inputs.
Coffee enthusiasts will have a plethora of exciting trends to investigate and appreciate in 2023. From the velvety texture of nitro cold brew to the visually appealing appearance of dalgona coffee, there is a trend for every taste preference. Therefore, leave your comfort zone and embark on a flavorful, innovative, and sustainable coffee journey.
