Ryan and I got to spend Friday in New York City doing some touristy things. We started our visit out by getting a personal studio tour of the Howard Stern Show, then a tour of Times Square including a visit to the Hard Rock Cafe, a visit to BLT Prime (more on that later) and finally a comedy show at Ha! It was a great father-son day. You can see the photos of the Stern Studio tour at my and Ryan’s Facebook pages.
No visit to Times Square is not complete without a visit to the Hard Rock Cafe. The Cafe is almost a museum that also serves food and sells T Shirts. They have some great Rock ‘n Roll memorabilia all over the store if you haven’t been there before. Ryan and I stopped in around 4:30 for a drink and some Chicken Wings. I knew they could not qualify for my Best of Bucks Co. Wings Top 5 list but I thought I should report on them in case you are in the neighbourhood. LOL.
The Chicken Wings were good but not great. The Medium Sized wings arrived quickly from kitchen despite a large crowd on a Friday afternoon. The skin was not crispy but cooked thru. A little more cooking time could have done the job here. The wings come spicy or BBQ but we stuck to trying the spicy and they were Spicy. The first bite put the heat in you mouth and it stuck around even after you swallowed. Not really a flavourful heat but just a burn. Once the burn died down, you did get a good chicken taste. The celery was fresh and crisp but two different sizes that was a little weird for me. The “White Blue Cheese” dressing had obviously made hours before because all the cheese pieces were at the bottom of the container. Once I fished out a piece of cheese, it was pretty bland and missing of the tang that a good blue cheese has. The cheese did cool some of the heat from the sauce so it was OK. The wings were big enough that it made a enough of an appetizer for Ryan and me to share.
