  • CHB Interviews: Jess Liese, Host of Rope's Trivia Night | Clinton Hill Blog
    the most fun part of the whole experience Usually I have a theme night and if not a theme night then theme categories In November I hosted a night devoted to my favorite trivia category U S presidents which brought a huge crowd of history teachers and assorted pedantic trivia nerds It was so much fun and came so naturally to me that I ve been coming up with themes ever since It is far easier to come up with say ten questions about medically themed TV shows than it is to come up with ten questions about anything at all in the world 5 Where do you live and how did you come across Rope Technically I don t live in the neighborhood I m a short G train ride away in Park Slope I ve been hanging out at Rope on and off for about five years though and I love the area I was coming to the neighborhood even way back when I had to take two trains and a bus to get there 6 Tell us a little more about Rope the clientele the vibe etc What makes it a cool place to grab a drink Rope is exactly the kind of bar I have been wanting to hang out in since I was old enough to want to hang out in bars Come to think of it it s probably good that I don t live in the neighborhood because I d probably be an alcoholic if I did It s cool but not elitist the drinks are thoughtfully prepared but won t kill your budget the music is listenable but not overwhelming The crowd is basically a cross section of local residents not just hipsters and Pratties but people who ve lived in the area for decades young professionals regulars It s really the kind of place you can visit once or visit daily and you won t feel out of place either way Also they have DUB pies and there is nothing not awesome about that 7 Give us the 411 on the LOST themed trivia night in conjunction with the season premiere Can non Losties participate And while we re at it who is your favorite Other The great thing about LOST and one reason I ve been so addicted to it throughout its often infuriating five seasons of let s explain this one tiny thing you don t care about while introducing six other new questions and let s spend half a season focusing on characters that don t further the plot only to kill them off when we realize you re on to us is that it pulls in so many elements of history science literature philosophy and pop culture in a way that adds to the suspense and mystery So if you re into any of those things regardless of whether or not you re a Lostie you ll probably get a few questions right as I do plan

  • Lunchtime With Tillie: Kum Kau | Clinton Hill Blog
    pinned down in her high chair I m sure they weren t made for standing in them TM had her captivated by the walls with the water running down into what looked like a coin trough while I took her back to her finny friends Shortly after we sat or stood back in our seats our food arrived I had a heaping helping of noodles I was almost anxious to dive into as I wanted to taste Kum Kau s take on what has become my favorite Chinese dish TM s chicken and broccoli which used to be my old fave looked to be standard issue as did the chicken wings I didn t try the chicken and broccoli but I was quite pleased with my noodles There were plenty of shrimp in it plus it had a nice kick to it The kick prevented me from giving Tillie much of it but she did sample a noodle or two Tillie s mom always says I never share my food with T when we re all out but I couldn t really this time The noodles were too spicy I promise I didn t want it all for myself Pizza on the other hand Mainly T was eating broccoli and brown rice with tiny pieces of chicken thrown in for good measure Tillie s mom was doing most of the feeding but I did give Tillie some pilfered florets from mom s plate every now and then After we finished eating we got our leftovers wrapped up and asked for the check We let Tillie walk around a little bit more and she made friends with some of the customers at other tables The staff there was really nice to us especially with chatting up Tillie and even bringing her her own fortune cookie I recommend going by especially if you have a hankering to get you and your baby some Chinese food Our bill was 27 which wasn t bad for the two entrees appetizer and a can of Diet Coke for Tillie s mom who didn t get her morning fix and really needed it by lunchtime Plenty of space pretty decent food and good service earned it some good marks with the fam Having built in Tillie distractions doesn t hurt the cause either This entry was posted in dining kids myrtle on January 25 2010 by lesterhead Post navigation Friday Photo CHB Interviews Jess Liese Host of Rope s Trivia Night 3 thoughts on Lunchtime With Tillie Kum Kau rny February 2 2010 at 11 24 am yay whities so happy you let your kid roam around kum kau i m sure it ll be her fave spot until you pack her up for a better neighborhood when she hits about 8 Log in to Reply anon March 14 2010 at 11 08 pm um awkward did you see the pic of the kid she s posted every week she s not exactly white and it

    lesterhead Burned Shells 4 Replies I have long noticed these vacant buildings on Fulton near Outpost Anyone know what happened to them or remember them when they were livable workable This entry was posted in fulton haunted observations on January 12 2010 by lesterhead Lunchtime With Tillie Thai 101 10 Replies Now that award season is over it s time to get back to business Hey everyone and welcome back to your regular Lunchtime With Tillie presentation This time yours truly and Lil T went to Thai 101 on Myrtle Avenue Now as shown by them receiving the coveted Best Bang for Your Buck honor at last week s LWT Awards it s obvious we re fans of Myrtle Thai at our homestead As a matter of fact I had never even tried Thai 101 before I was always kind of leery about it with its name and signage it just reminded me of a place you d come across in a mall or something And the eating s never really that great in a mall Anyway Tillie and I went there last Friday you know when there was that wintry mix thing going on throughout the day That necessitated us finding a place within a two block radius from home and as we ve hit nearly everywhere else around for LWT Thai 101 was duly elected I packed her up some shells and cheese just in case and we were off When we got there the waiter told us feel free to sit anywhere The aisle separating the restaurant was kind of narrow and I didn t want Tillie s stroller to get in his way I ended up sitting kind of close to the front door and he suggested that it might be too cold there for the baby with people coming and going So we ended up getting settled in closer to the back of the place The waiter brought Tillie and me glasses of water and I started going over the menu I had an idea already of what route I was going to take red curry with chicken You see when I go to a place I hadn t been before I like to order a dish that is or is comparable to my favorite at a similar restaurant I figure if they get your staple dish right then you can feel free to explore other menu options What can I say I m just a staples comparing kind of guy With my plans mostly set and the lunchtime options so affordable I decided to delve further into the menu and see if I can sneak something else in for me and T In addition to the red curry with chicken lunch special which I got with a bowl of soup I ordered the chicken curry puffs for an appetizer Granted a good amount of food but as always Tillie and I were up for the challenge As we were waiting for our first courses
