The Restaurant Week NYC Edition
On this week’s show, we had a very special guest. Lauren Hawker who hosts BTR Pulse which is a weekly video series focusing on “what’s really going on” by taking it to the streets to chat it up with peeps who are all up in it. Hats off to Lauren because just doing a radio interview can be awkward, but she does in video and she’s great! If I ever did video, you would clearly see a person who has no idea what to do with his hands (Shoves them in back pockets. Wait who’s holding the mic now?). Also in our interview with Lauren, we learned that Australia is lacking in breakfast cereal selections. So please, we urge you to send all the Fruity Pebbles and Count Chocula you can to the children of Australia, because they don’t’ know what they’re missing.
On this week’s BTR Pulse (http://b-t-r.co/XyVPsq) Lauren went to check out NYC Restaurant Week, which as it turns out is much longer than a week, but don’t sleep on it because it will eventually end and you will be bummed because you were lazy and didn’t go. NYC Restaurant week allows you try some of New York’s best restaurants at like one kajillionth of the normal prices by featuring simple price-fixe menus that highlight their menus. This allows you to target several restaurants and not have to mortgage your future.
Lauren stopped by Danny Meyer’s Gramercy Terrace at the Gramercy Park Hotel, mostly because of her love for Shake Shack, which makes Lauren my most favorite person. Lauren also met with and interviewed Chef Jeff Seizer. Once you’re done listening to Eatopia you can hop over and check out Lauren’s visit on her show Pulse! How meta is that?
We had some tasty beats too from the likes of Xiu Xiu
