NY Night Train 12th Annual New Years Ball
SAVE THE DATE! our last Home Sweet Home edition after many epic years! and the send-off is a new approach to achieve a smaller community-oriented family-style event instead of the usual madness! AFTER THE BANDS (12:45AM or so) IT WILL BE OPEN TO ALL (GENERAL ADMISSION AT THE DOOR), but for the first half, ADVANCE TICKETS ONLY FOR THE LIVE MUSIC! we have a killer bill of bands way too big for the place. and we are limiting admission to make sure there’s room for all the friends but its also not a sardine can. there will be NO GUEST LIST. but tickets will be cheaper than anything else around. every dollar will go directly to the bands. but… here’s the catch… tickets will only be available to friends and friends of friends of the bands and djs and bartenders.
So if you don’t know any of these folks personally you are SOL
$20 to the live music pot – 100% of which goes directly to the bands – this price includes FREE MIDNIGHT CHAMPAGNE TOAST, live MYSTERY LIGHTS, DADDY LONG LEGS, MIRANDA & THE BEAT, and FLASYD plus dancing ’til 4AM with DJs JONATHAN TOUBIN, and REYES RODRIGUEZ plus a seated cocktail oasis upstairs for when you get tired of the commotion… we will be ordering pizzas etc and you can just park there and make a night of it

Subway Soul NYE Bash at Ceremony 224
See in the New Year of 2019 at our Subway Soul Club costume party!
Be inspired by Brooklynite Truman Capote’s fantastical and glamorous Black & White Ball.
Imagine yourself as a party guest mingling with the glitterati of 1960s society; Jackie Kennedy, Frank Sinatra and Penelope Tree. Dress in black and white evening and cocktail wear like Audrey’s Hepburn’s long black dress in “Breakfast At Tiffany’s,” Monroe’s white “Seven Year Itch” dress, a Courreges space suit or a Mary Quant graphic mini. Gentlemen can express their inner James Bond in a black or white tuxedo, ‘don’ a “Mad Men” suit or go all Andy Warhol in a black turtleneck sweater and white jeans. As long as your outfit is black and/or white, have fun with it! Add a mask if your feeling flirtatious!
See inspiration at our website here.
https://www.subwaysoulclub.com/subwaysoulclubnews
We’ll be decking out Ceremony with black and white decorations and at midnight we’ll count down to the New Year with a FREE Champagne toast!
Dance the night away on a wooden floor to the best in 1960s Motown, Northern Soul and Go-Go Grooves on vinyl 45s by a particularly delicious DJ line up featuring Peanut Butter Brown (Uptown Getdown) and One Mint Julep (Soul Night). Phast Phreddie The Boogaloo Omnibus will be shaking (not stirred) and hostess with the hostess Lady Dawn will be providing the sauce!

Roxy Presents: the Fourth Annual New Year’s Eve Surrealist Ball
Monday, December 31, 2018 at 10 PM – 1 AM
The Roxy Hotel NYC
2 6th Avenue, New York, New York 10013
www.nyetheroxyhoteltribeca.com
Surreal: very strange or unusual; having the quality of a dream.
The time has come for the Roxy to once again transform itself into a Surrealist tableau in order to properly bid adieu to 2018. The fourth Annual New Year’s Eve Surrealist Ball invites guests back to a modern-day version of the legendary 1972 ball given by Marie-Hélène de Rothschild, complete with daring décor, exquisite costumes, and excellent entertainment. Get inspired by our album of Surrealist looks and get ready for a magical evening of premium cocktails, endless dancing, and a headlining set by none other than David Johansen.
Although Surrealist-inspired dress is not required, guests are highly encouraged to throw caution to the wind and indulge in the fantasy. Think fancy, fabulous and nonsensical; add glitter to a set of antlers, wear three masquerade masks at once, paint a third or fourth eye onto your forehead, put a birdcage in your hair, glue a clock to your top hat.
Every guest, including General Admission ($195) will enjoy Premium Open Bar from 9pm – 1am. Bar Seating ($225) and Bar Booth Seating ($275) will also enjoy Surrealist-inspired bites, and Premium Seating ($296) will also get tableside Premium vodka and champagne.

The San Diego Chicken Pie Shop

While this building isn't old, the restaurant itself is.  The original locations closed and moved, yet this masterpiece of Hearty food lives on, with prices from another decade.  The menu is starch, starch and starch with only delicious fresh cole slaw to break it up.  I had the meatloaf, while my friend had the specialty chicken pot pie.  Definately worth a trip.

Science!

The importance of calling Ahead.

I went up to visit a friend in Boston this week.  When I go there I usually make it a point to visit my favorite Chinese Restaurant in Cambridge, Mary Chungs.  Mary Chungs is home to my favorite dish in the whole wide world, Suan La Chow Show.  Here it is in its lovely splendor:

Beautiful, isn't it?  Lovely pillow like wontons, in a spicy, savory sauce, resting on delicate marinated beansprouts.  Delicious.  Some people also like their Dun Dun Noodles, though I am not a fan because I don't like peanuts in my food (though I love peanuts alone, go figure).  

Anyway, after dreaming of how my tasty Suan would dance on my tongue, we get there and find this:

 

We were very sad and wound up eating at an inferior place for lunch, but during lunch I saw on my phone that a place also in Central Square Cambridge also had on their menu Suan La Chow Show called Pu Pu Hot Pot, right across the street.  While I was eating I actually used my phone to order two of their Suans..  

 

So we get there and wait and get my order, which weighs a ton.   Turns out their version of the dish is coated in a brown gloppy sauce and covered in my hated aforementioned peanuts.  As you can see, theres no way around them.

 

The wontons underneath were okay, and there was actually one or two bites of some pickled vegetables they put under there that were faintly reminiscent of Mary Chungs dish, but it was really nothing like it and extremely disappointing.  

Even before I ate it, given the brick like quality of the bag, I was already disappointed and we were walking back by Mary Chungs.  Some guy rushes by us and tries the door and is shocked by the vacation notice as were were.  We said "yeah, the same thing happened to us."  He Said, "YEAH, BUT DID YOU DRIVE ALL THE WAY HERE FROM NEW YORK???!?!".  We were like, "No!  We took the Train here all the way from New York!".  Then I offered him a tin of the inferior Suan if he wanted it and he looked at us like we were Weirdos and walked away.

Make sure you call ahead to avoid disappoinment.  Mary Chungs will be reopened on August 15, 2012.

Oddly enough, This was not the first time this has happened to me!

 

 

Mario the Bakers-one of two reasons to visit Miami

One of the few things that makes me keep my sanity when I visit home in Miami, Mario the bakers used to have a classic stand alone restaurant on the West Dixie Highway, but has now moved to US1.  The Garlic Rolls, perhaps the best in the Universe remain Amazing, but now its in a shopping Mall.  Progress

 

Welcome!

We are in the process of moving the old site to a fancy WordPress site!

Trashy Travel was started in the late 90s as Hipster Travel when it was hard to pick out the noise on the internet to find the few select things that we like to do when we visit anywhere.  During the great hipster backlash of the mid 00’s it became apparent that a name change was in order.  Despite the dictionary defining hipster as “a person who keeps up with all the latest happenings, particularly in modern jazz”, the disdain for a new type bearing this moniker has been made known, even from folks suspiciously sporting Goatees and trucker hats.  We won’t argue, thus we bring you Trashy Travel: A select collection of travel tips and links for the unconventional traveler.   

We Like:
  • Rockabilly and Psychobilly
  • Garage Rock and Mod culture
  • Punk Rock
  • A select amount of Indie rock, but nothing with too much pouting.
  • Thrift Stores
  • Roadside Architecture
  • Amusement Parks
  • Drive In Theaters
  • Food that is commonly referred to as “Roadfood” made popular by the book and site of the same name and further explored in “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” type programming
  • Places that are “time capsules”-such as Knoebels Amusement Park in PA, Katz’ Deli in New York City and more.
  • Unusual Museums, such as the Spam Museum, or the Mutter Museum
  • Places that are so uncool they become cool again.  The tacky, trashy and just plain wrong.
Due to the downfall of geocities, which hosted the original site, we are currently in a state of rebuilding.  There are many outdated links and party culture is hard to keep up with when you are a small operation.  There are still unformatted pages and unchanged photos.  With your help, we hope to get everything more current, and eventually, more navigable.  The main thing about this site, is that is it a collection of places that WE want to visit when we travel, and hope you find them interesting as well.  Its just a list, and like all lists, you may find some things out of date, but it is a good starting point.

Trashy Travels!
