Tonight the Mister, I and a good friend finally got around to trying out the Garden Spot’s newest dining establishment: Paulie Gee’s. The first thing that struck me was how vegetarian friendly the menu (which you can see by clicking here) was. Truth be told, it was difficult to make a choice— but choose I did: I opted for the Marianna and an arugula salad.
Make that two arugula salads. As it would happen the waitress had noted we had debated as to whether purchase one or two. They had an extra one so they gave it to us. Both were dispatched pretty quickly. Then came a surprise from Mr. Gee himself:
The first working model of the “Miss Heather Special” a little culinary joint venture we have been working on. We dug in.
And dug in. It should be noted that the Mister ate his entire pie: the Kuban.*
And DUG IN.
All in all we had a great time and my Marianna pie was garlicky and delicious. A glass of wine would have been a nice accompaniment, but Paulie assured me they were anticipating their liquor license in a week or so.
As for what will constitute a “Miss Heather Special”? That’s for me to know and you to find out! I am more than certain Paulie will come up with something fantastic! In the meantime, check it out! You will not be disappointed.
*As in Adam Kuban of SliceNY.
P.S.: You can see more (and I would argue, better) pictures from our foray to Paulie Gee’s by checking out my photo pool.

This photo (which showcases a Bad Brains-inspired tee shirt featuring none other than our beloved Shit Tits!) was taken by autovac. Two words: love it! Lest you are wondering, this shirt is for sale! You can purchase ‘em for the very reasonable price of $20.00 (plus $5.00 shipping) by pointing and clicking here.
UPDATE, March 15, 2010; I have just been informed by my mother that I am to purchase one of these for Pa Heather. I am pleased to report this has come to pass!

I don’t know about you but the weather today is— to put it nicely— a bit rough. Instead of staying home with a case of the rainy day blues I decided to head over to Dog Habitat and meet a few of their newest adoptable cuties. They definitely made me smile and I am certain you will too. Without further ado here they are!
First up, we have Sasha. She is an eight month old Staffordshire Terrier mix rescued from the Center for Animal Care and Control. She’s a bit shy but nonetheless very sweet. I’ll let Jay take it from here.
Next up we have Monkey. Not only is he too is a Staffie mix rescued from the Center For Animal Care and Control but he lives up to his name! It was very difficult to shoot a photograph of Monkey because he was more interested in giving puppy love than aping for the camera— as you’ll see!
For those of you who fancy furkids of the more diminutive variety I present for your Saturday afternoon entertainment this sweet pair of Chihuahua/Jack Russell terrier mixes: Milo (as seen above) and his more outgoing brother Hootie.
Last up, a little something for the cat lovers. A comely one year old chap named Westly. Not only is he very friendly, but he sports some, um, interesting assets.
Those of you who care to know more about the “markings” referenced in the previous video can click here for the reveal. Anyone who is interested in providing a loving home to any of these lovely (and loving) furkids should contact Dog Habitat via telephone at (347) 601-8678 or via email at: rescue (at) doghabitat (dot) org.
