And Jersey For All: Grub Crawl NYC

Image
The great Metallica Local Chapter known as AND JERSEY FOR ALL got together once again for the culinary delight of others. The chapter is best known for food, food, eating, cooking, food and of course BACON!! LOL February 12, 2011 saw them take the streets of the much beloved New York City in the first (but definitely not the last) GRUB CRAWL. What is a grub crawl the Americans reading this will ask. A grub crawl is like a pub crawl. In London we get together and walk from pub to pub drinking. But in Jersey, we prefer to eat. So instead of pubs, I, your humble chapter head, chose grub i.e. food. Metro cards in hand, we criss crossed the great gotham city to some of the finest eateries and literally ate all day. Fancy Dress?? That means, we did it in costume!!!


PrincessVic and Captain Hook started out the festivities by partaking in light refreshments at The Shake Shack on 8th and 44th. This Shake Shack is an indoor sit down place. The line here moves much faster than the one in Madi…

Iron Maiden 2011 Tour

Image
My new tagline is: From Puberty to Menopause - Iron Maiden: We've Got You Covered! (T)
I've listened to the band since 1980 - April in fact. They were opening for Judas Priest. I was a stone Priest fan and couldn't care less about some dodgy opening band. Boy was I wrong! I had to scrape my jaw from the floor that spring evening. I've been agog ever since. February 11, 2011 saw Iron Maiden play in front of a very appreciative crowd in Moscow, Russia. They are starting yet another lengthy tour to support Final Frontier, the 25th over all album, 16th studio album. I am still quite luke warm on this offering, which is a step up from out right thinking it shite upon first, second and even third listening. Maiden have always been a LIVE band, so I'm not too plussed about not liking it on vinyl. I'm sure the live renditions of the songs will suit me just fine.



When The Wild Wind Blows was taped in Moscow on February 11, 2011. Being the first night, Bruce sounds awesom…
