La Guli

Jerrys friend Chris offered a recommendation when he heard we were headed to Queens to chase graffiti art.  He said we would thank him when we were over hating him.  We had to see what he meant by that.  The place was LaGuli Pastry shop on Ditmars in Astoria, just steps away from the end...

Come, Sail Away

Our friend, Joyce, is as much adventure-bound as we are so the three of us headed out! We had some unfinished business in South Seaport. We were there a few weeks ago, visited some of the sights in the area but were not able to see and do many of the things the area offers.  ... Continue Reading →
