Subtle Tea on Long Island makes an impression with Craft Brewed and Organic offerings....



Lynn and I stumbled upon a great Long Island product and company called The Subtle Tea Company out of nearby (to us) Centereach, New York. The teas are craft brewed and organic with the best tasting zero calorie tea Lynn and I have ever had. The company seems to be getting good distribution around Long Island (we just spotted it at the Jamesport Brewery).  Lynn and I look forward to seeing this company grow on Long Island and are always glad to have the chance to be supportive to local products.

The Spirit of the 90's is alive at Coffee Labs Roasters in Tarrytown...


 Lynn and I went to Tarrytown this weekend and were charmed by the Downtown there with its interestingly curated stores, interesting restaraunts and for me a couple of Coffee Shops that transported me back to my college days and early post collegiate life where I would spend large segments of my days and nights in the then novel notion of a "Coffee Bar."  I don't spend any real time at Coffee shops anymore being married and busy with work and life of course. 


So, it was fun to get a inky black shot of espresso from Coffee Labs.  We just made a pit stop there but it was fun to soak in that 90's vibe on a crisp April afternoon.

Pik Nik in Tarrytown makes a mostly good impression on M & L


Lynn and I went into Tarrytown, NY over the weekend and found Pik Nik a Barbeque-centric restaraunt the food of which we enjoyed immensely.  We ordered tacos and were rewarded with three hefty and flavorful  offerings stuffed with delicious pulled pork. Other diners around us ordered brisket and chicken and the portions were epic. 

The interior was slightly hipster with an eclectic array of found objects, posters, and vinyl. On the minus side, some of the staff were visibly and inexplicably cranky on a beautiful April day. This cut against the cheerful interior and laid back vibe a bit.

 Nonetheless, Pik Nik was a satisfying experience with memorable food on a beautiful Westchester afternoon.
