Flaming Drinks at Tequila Sunrise with Joanne and Tony

l went to this great restaurant in Bay Side called Tequila sunrise. The ultimate attractions are the flaming coffee liqueour drinks they prepare right at the table and the marriachi band that roams the restaurant. They have valet parking, for those of you that may be afraid to venture out into Queens for fear of not finding a spot for your baby.

I haven't seen Joanne in a while as she is attending grad school and now lives in Pittsburgh. So it was nice to finally catch up.

The Witchs Brew - A Most Unusual Coffee Loungue

Rachel came to visit and after a long night of partying we had to stop off at the Witch's Brew for a pick me up. Its a cute little coffee shop run by two women from California. They have a great story. They inherited their grandmother's house and turned it into an independent coffee shop like no other. It has become a local hang out for teens who are too young to get into bars, but it still maintains a faithful  java slugging caffeine craving adult crowd. There was a little girl there with her parents who questioned "Mommie, are there witches upstairs". What was I thinking, "No sweetie, just good coffee."

Interesting story, we once got kicked out of this fine place because a waitress upset Caroline and that caused a frenzy amongst the group we were with. I have known that girl for a while now, though not well and I have never seen her madder than that time at the brew.

More pics that tell a better story about the place than I could ever write. Oh and by the way, this is located in Hempstead Long Island if you so dare to venture there for a visit.

For those of you that don't know the story. After the rooftop bar soiree, a few of us went over to Pop Burger for some eats. The calamari and sliders were excellent. Too bad the drunk guy that accosted women decided to sit at our table. Thankful that he did, as fearless Christina managed to get the bouncer and get the drunk boy booted out. Ahh, what would we do without our friends.
