Hope you got a big dick and a tight abdomen. Venice can be a menace.

It's been almost a decade since I last ate there so I can't provide anything up to date. Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to get there if the weather permits.

Bridge Cafe, on the Manhattan side (no view) on Water Street was one of my faves.

For a New Yorker experience, take the Staten Island Ferry. Free, primo views of Downtown, Statue of Liberty, New York Harbor and Brooklyn Bridge. If you happen to ride with the commuters, you'll see Working Girls from SI, just like in the movie.



yes, they do wear sneakers to work.

Wow, there's deflation for you. Last time I rode it the fare was 50 cents!

In LA, try not to get shot, in New York, try not to get stabbed.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I think the ride out to Malibu is nice. If you want to head east, take CA 74 through the Santa Rosa Mountains to Palm Springs, its a nice ride with spectacular views. Of course, be careful in Palm Springs, it is full of Jews plotting the destruction of all other mankind. Just ask drewprof.

I'm here now and very nice it is as well. Got on a pushbike today for the first time in years and cycled from Venice Beach to Santa Monica. Great weather (compared to Edinburgh fucking Greenland is nice!) and friendly people though Venice is freak central. Lots of interesting vehicles as well. Saw a Qvale Mangusta today. I always wondered who had bought it.

Well we do have some wonderful institutions of higher learning including the famous Females Who Declined My Sexual Advances Museum located in my basement just south of the boiler room.
