the great state of Kansas. My plan was to make it to LaGuardia in enough time to enjoy a cheeseburger from Pat La Frieda. That delicious specimen above from my October attempt had two bites before being tossed-I can thank a flight cancellation for ruining that meal. This second time, a delayed bus and a lost wallet contributed to looking longingly across the aisle at hamburger deliciousness while waiting for a Port Authority cop to take my statement. Thank God Delta serves free peanuts.
my Oklahoma Joe's burnt ends for months, but I didn't make a note that they're only served Wednesdays and Saturdays. Since New Year's Day feel on Saturday, that meant no burnt ends. What I didn't realize was that they're always closed on Sunday. No Oklahoma Joe's for me; I promise to make up for that next month.
Esquina in Lawrence. Esquina sells a nice rice-based horchata with plenty of cinnamon added. It was the perfect accompaniment to the spice in their paella.
Sylas & Maddy's that won't be on my favorites list: Oreo Cheesecake, and Power Cat Crunch. I was underwhelmed by both, I'll just have to eat my way through their menu.
