Cleaning Ektorp Blekinge White Slip Covers

I have always struggled with cleaning my Ektorp Blekinge Slip Covers, so I decided to experiment.  I have always washed all of my slip covers, which consist of two couches and two Ektorp chairs, which consists of the Jennylund and the arm chair. 

I take all of the covers off and go to a nearby Laundromat where they have 75lbs washing machines and I put all of the slip covers in at once.  I put the cycle on heavy and I use hot water and for my detergents I use oxyclean, arm and hammer and borax for an extra boost to my detergent.

What I have found is that you can air dry your slip covers instead of having them air dry and it really doesn't result in any shrinkage. 

Pon Thai Bistro

 Pon Thai Bistro is located in Washington Square in Brookline.  It is set along a row of stores not far from the Route 9 entrance.  I was there recently and really enjoyed the Drunken Noodles.

The taste was with a mixture of essence and the right intensity.  The wait staff was very attentive and the atmosphere was quaint and desirable.

The second time I went there I got an order of Drunken Noodles to go and they tasted the same as if I sat in.  Don't take away that I only tried the Drunken Noodles I will be back again to taste some of their other famous delights.

Shake Shake Shake Shake Shake "SHAKE SHACK"

The first thing I sampled was their shakes, which is made out of custard and boy do I love custard, so I ordered a vanilla shake and they only come in one size much to my disappointment. The shake wasn't a disappointment it was creamy and thick and the vanilla taste was right on point.

On my next visit a few days later I had the cheeseburger and French fries. The French fries were hand cut and very light and not greasy. The only simile that I found between Shake Shack and Tasty Burger were their fries, you have to speak up if you don't want them to be too salty.

The cheeseburger was delicious. I had a double cheeseburger just to be greedy, so that I'd get the full effect. I think they use a sharp yellow cheddar cheese

Overall I rate Shake Shack an 8.5

New York New York - It's always a good time for a day trip to New York

New York is a place where you can always have a good time. I went to New York last Saturday and had a blast. I caught the Go Bus in Alewife Station at 6:00am and then it make its scheduled stop in Newton to pick up more passengers.

We arrived in New York at about 10:00am, which basically was a 4 hour trip. My first stop was to Amy Ruth's where I had their famous chicken and waffles and boy o boy was it worth the trip. I had the waffles and also a side order of cheese grits..."Make  you wanna slap yo  mommma". They were finger licking good. I took the subway around town and caught glimpses of the different sites and personalities.

I took the train to 125th street famous for the Apollo Theatre and down the street to Lenox Ave another famous landmark Sylvia's Restaurant. Then I travelled to Union Sq.where they had vendor's selling their wares. 

Now mind you this is all on foot and up and down subway stairs and the occassional elevator carrying bags. I felt like I was on a chain gang.

Look you can take pictures on the train and they have no idea.

Our next spot was Time Square and you know it's always a hustle
