  1. North River Lobster Co.


    July 20, 2014 by Emily Pergament

    Since it’s summer in NYC and therefore one thousand degrees outside, I have been dying to get on a boat. So imagine my glee when Rob told me about the North River Lobster Co. – a lobster shack on a boat! They call themselves a lobster shack, but I haven’t ever been to a lobster shack, so I can’t attest to how accurate that claim is. What they mean, I think, is that there aren’t waiters. You order your food and drinks at the bar, they give you a number, and then you sit down and “your food finds you.”

    I had a lobster roll and Rob had a shrimp po-boy. We both had fries and we tried the red and white sangria. Everything was so good! It’s reasonably priced considering you’re on a moving boat. There’s no entrance fee and no time limit.

    After dinner, we went to see the Summer Shorts at 59 E 59 – a theater at that address in Manhattan. It was our fourth show there, the third time at the bar, and our second time at the bar as 29 under 29 members. 29 under 29 members pay $29 per year if they are under 29 years old. The benefits include two cocktails for $9 (usually $8-$12 each), two tickets per show for $15 or less each on the two smaller stages, and $20 for the main stage (and I’ve seen tickets as expensive as $60!). This is awesome because Rob holds the membership, but we each get the benefits. And the plays we saw (three one-acts) were great – they were the best we’ve seen, out of seeing three different sets of Summer Shorts.

    So you just got paid, which means Capital One and Bank of America got paid too, but you’re hungry all the same. You’re going to see a play on the upper east side, and you’re hungry. So you go to Menu Pages and try to find that magical combination of good location, high rating, and good prices.

    You tell your lovely fiance to meet you, but since she broke her smartphone last week she is paranoid and writes the address on her hand:
