Sam and I went to this bar nearby, Williams & Bailey, to watch Jeremy Lin and the Knicks on Valentine’s Day the other night. A couple of HDTV screens, happy hour and bar food. Right on.
I got the Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Waffles ($10). Pretty good. The onion gravy was like homemade style using grease and flour. It went really nice when mixing it all up with the syrup.
Sam got the Spinach Artichoke Dip. Cheesy and stringy. We both got caught on the same piece of stringy cheese. It was almost like Lady & the Tramp with the spaghetti noodle.
They also had a 3 Tacos for $5 during happy hour deal. Maybe Taco Tuesdays. Looked like a good deal. The happy hour was also $3 drafts and wells until 8. There’s also a $3 cheap beer draft all the time.
When I came back from the restroom, Sam had already paid. The bartender probably thought we were on a Valentine’s date.

Exciting basketball game. Jeremy Lin blew it up at the end. Sam and I knew it was Tebow time when it got down to it. I feel like I’m in Linbow. Me So Hungry, time for Linner. Shaqueef O’Neil. I told the bartender that we were rooting for the Asian guy. She probably already knew that.
On another note, I think I created Jeremy Lin in NBA 2K1 over 10 years ago. I plugged in my old Sega Dreamcast to check. I think he came out of the video game like Mannequin. I’m like a young Anthony Michael Hall.
