I don’t think Samurai Papa was recommended here for ramen but it should be. Snagged some tonight and it was so damn good.

Place is tiny though. Prepare for a wait
I recommended it!!!

Also to infinitebento, make sure you check craigslist sublets.
 
On the 7th? Will people be able to make it after seeing Metroid Prime 4 reveal? We might need time to recover.
I might pass. Took a bit of a financial hit here in Philly. Have a review to write over the weekend. I don't want to go back to NYC. I love being on my own and traveling alone. ;_; Dammit I love that I'm having a few local beers at a bar in South Philly alone!

Nah you gotta come. Last meetup of the year and people think you're dead. If you like drinking alone so much, I'm sure there will be a moment where enough people will be on their phones that you can relive that feeling. 🤙🏻

I dunno son, being on my own feels liberating in a way where no one knows you and have to figure out your way. I call it solitary enjoyment. I went through hell and back coming and leaving Philly since I wasted money thanks to overlooking mistakes. But I had friends looking after me to help me sort it out and calm me down. I'm going to see if I plan a trip to Canada alone for next year.
Better off drinking in Philly where it's shockingly cheap.
Yup, I'll miss the cheap beer. And damn good beer at that. :( Also Wawa. Loved the hell out of Wawa's cheap sandwiches.
I kinda know what you mean. I did a bit of that in China.
Yup, it didn't happen so much when I was in the Dominican Republic but here it feels good if that makes any sense.

All I’m hearing is that you hate us. 😔

The buildings department says it is not operating a crackdown. But the increase is linked to anonymous 311 complaints, which the agency is obligated to investigate and take action on if violations are found."
Over the past three years, the number of 311 complaints about business awnings and signs stayed steady around 900, until this year, when it doubled to nearly 1900 complaints.
lol, suuuuuuree. definitely just an influx of "anonymous" reports. but I guess it might be sign companies doing this?? That's shady

So recently around my part of Brooklyn, a lot of businesses have been taking down their awnings and replacing them with banners. Turns out someone is making a ton of 311 calls to have them taken down: http://www.ny1.com/nyc/all-boroughs...esses-are-getting-slapped-with-signage-fines-

There has to be a reason for all this. I mean, awnings? Seriously?
The city would be far more attractive without awnings. The vast majority of them are terrible, and yeah out in the boroughs they get much worse in part because most aren't actually compliant with regs.

If it's a sign company behind it, I'm impressed no one came up with it before now.

Yo speaking of 311 and signage, is there an rule on signage brightness? There's a car wash a couple blocks down that has a huge LED array sign which they must have set at 11/10 brightness. Damn thing illuminates the entire street for blocks.

Hello NYC peeps! My wife and I are looking at places to live in Bronxville, and from everything we've heard it's a pretty cozy little area with decent shops/restaurants/etc. I am wondering if any of you have an opinion of this suburb? We both work in Greenwich so we're trying to find something of a compromise between NYC and work. Thanks!

If you can afford the area it should be nice. You're going to be spending more time commuting and at the mercy of the train getting into work, though, versus living near or off of the subway.
