Shameless Plugs on Nat’l Fried Chicken Day

July 6, 2016

It’s Wednesday, and I’m supposed to be headed towards Utica. But I’m not headed towards Utica. Summer giveth, and summer taketh away. Easy come. Easy go. While I’ll miss the plate of Utica greens, and the visit with cousins who usually can be found in the southwest, this is a function of summer.

The unexpected break from travel may give me a chance to get some work done. Those Yelp newsletters don’t write themselves, you know. Speaking of which, there is a new one out today.

And speaking of today, did you know it’s National Fried Chicken Day? The only way I heard was an email from The Flying Chicken people telling me that they’ll be giving out one piece of free fried chicken to anyone who walks in today. And while that sounds too good to be true, that’s the plan. You know, until they run out of chicken. So get yourself down to Troy.

If you do go down to Troy, I also have another idea for you. But wherever you are, if you are reading these words right now, I know you’re on the internet. And that means the following things are just a click away.

Two quick shameless plugs for my things.

First of all, just in case you don’t delve into the archives and were busy with your family on Independence Day, I’ve announced the next Fussy Little Tour. It’s soft serve, and it’s this Saturday! So check out the start time, the meeting place, and the itinerary here, and hopefully you can RSVP so I can save you a seat.

And speaking of RSVPs, I’d love to see some of the blog readers at the next Official Yelp Event. That’s coming up soon as well. It’s July 13, and it involves learning a bit about local produce. But it also involves eating it, and having a great time.

Now I don’t just want to plug my blog.

Did you know my uncle also has a blog? It’s not a food blog, but it’s a pretty cool snapshot of life in one corner of Manhattan.

But back to local food blogs, Melinda just wrote a heartbreaking piece on Mozz & Melba. Not everyone can love it. And I suppose that’s fine. It takes all kinds.

Now, if you do venture over to Troy today, don’t forget to check out Little Peck’s. I’m very excited that the coffee part of Vic and Heather’s compound is getting up and running. They have a good machine, good beans, and good people. So all the elements are there for the place to be fantastic.

I can’t wait to make it over. In fact, I tried to drop by last night in the hopes that I could get an espresso pulled from the new machine. But no such luck. I’ll have to make a trip during normal business hours. And that’s probably better anyhow, since the machine will be nicely warmed up.

Hope you all are enjoying this short week, and look forward to seeing you around. There’s so much fun coming up, I’m not sure when to fit in time for sleep.

    I can see why Ralph’s Mozz and Melba wouldn’t convert non-believers. I had it once and thought it was too soggy and greasy. Maybe the fry cook’s inconsistency is an issue in the kitchen. Whatever enjoyment their homemade sauce can offer is lost on execution like that.

    I went to Little Peck’s last night and got the malt cold brew which was delightful and just like the Tandem original. I can’t wait until they open full force. After my coffee, I did feel a little guilty for cheating on SMCo so I went and got a chamomile hop soda (so wonderful). Needless to say, I was hydrated!
