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
