Xerxes is wise

In re: the post before mine…awesome idea. I went to the Brooklyn Museum last week for the first time, and I really cannot recommend it enough. Try to get into an argument over whether “that’s really a cat mummy” for that extra helping of fun. (Warning: Gift shop may be deadly for those, like me, who are raccoonishly attracted to shiny objects.)
Also, I lived near the Empire State Building for seven years, and only went to the top for the first time last summer…and I’m telling you, good times. I think I saw my parents in New Jersey. So, head on over to lower midtown and pour out a forty for your homie Fay Wray. The view is rad.
I am, however, saddened to report that the Cyclones game I went to last night was…kind of annoying. The bat race was not administered correctly, in my opinion, and also, shut up between innings, guy from Z100. Nobody cares.
And now, a question: Best egg cream in Brooklyn? Talk to me, people. I’m thirsty and carb-friendly.

    I find the Cyclones to be a pretty overrated baseball franchise… the main problem I had was the sound system, which was loud and obnoxious even by modern-American-sports standards. I recommend going to a Staten Island Yankees game, because the level of play is exactly the same, the stadium is nicer, and it’s an excuse to ride the ferry. I like going to Newark for a Bears game too… the level of play there is higher because it’s mostly veterans instead of the rookies or almost-rookies you see in the NY-Penn League.

    I’m not sure exactly what an egg cream is, just that it’s, like, the official drink of Brooklyn.
    Andrew: Yes, it was the sound system that bugged. We bolted after five innings. The Bear Den is way nicer, I agree.
