#DealAlert There Ain’t No Burger Like A Mark Burger…

If you love burgers and looking for a cheap meal in the city then Mark Burger, (rightfully located at 33 St. Marks Place) is the place for you. They serve huge shakes that pair perfectly with their sliders (you get 1 slider with every order). You also don’t want to pass up on their chili cheese fries.

Mark Burger is a great deal because their sliders start at $2.50 and are pretty big, topped with American Cheese and Grilled Onions. They also have an interesting take on a bacon burger because instead of it having it on top of the burger they put crumbled bacon into their meat mix which is a rarity in the city.

Trying one of their shakes is a must, they are huge but delicious. I had the black and white shake but they are known for their Guinness shake.

They have a lunch special 2 sliders, fries & a soda for $8 and happy hour Monday-Friday from 3-7pm.

Next time you’re in the Lower East Side and are looking for a quick, hearty bite that won’t break your budget go to Mark Burger…your stomach and wallet will thank you!

Happy Eating! 😀

#SCBD Grapefruit ‘Beer’mosa Recipe

I’ll admit it ever since I moved closer to New York City I’ve definitely become a “bruncher.” I believe here is no better way to enjoy the weekend then with a mimosa and your favorite brunch or lunch dish. Last night after I bought a six pack of Blue Moon I had this random epiphany to make a Beermosa (a mimosa with beer instead of champagne) this weekend and that I did.

Here’s my recipe inspired by this beermosa recipe from SheKnows.com

grapefruit blue moon beermosa

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (more or less) of Grapefruit Juice (or juice of choice)
  • 1/2 cup (more or less) of Blue Moon

Instructions:

  • Pour about 1/2 cup of Grapefruit into glass
  • Pour Blue Moon into glass, let sit
  • Once it fizzes it’s ready
  • Kick back, relax, & enjoy!

I love this take on a the classic mimosa, so if you are in the mood for beer with your brunch and love juice as much as I do, grab a tall glass & make a beermosa!

Cheers! 😀

#DealAlert Get A Bang For Your Buck At Biggies!

If you are in the mood for a great meal that is HUGE, filling, and flavorful then Biggie’s is the place for you. I’ve been to two of their three locations in Jersey since they have two in Hoboken and one in Carlstadt. My favorite location is Carldstadt because it’s about 20 minutes away from me and conveniently close to MetLife Stadium.

Anytime I’ve gone to Biggie’s, I’ve got a bang for my buck. There appetizers are big enough to share and made just right (pictured below). I highly recommend the Thai Chili Calamari which will give your taste buds a treat. If you love the wings and thin crust pizza get them while you are there, they are also must-haves. It’s an ideal location for night out with friends, family or even a date. I have yet to have an entree or sandwich there but I’ve heard they are just as big and delicious and plan on trying one of their signature sandwiches during my next visit. Check out their full menu at the Carlstadt location, here.

If all that good food doesn’t have you in the mood for Biggie’s now, then maybe this will. They have $5 martini’s all day everyday, and they aren’t boring flavors either they range from Lychee, Peach, Bellini, and more! I love the martini glasses that they are served in because they add a little flair. The drink menu has a good variety and is affordable in general which is always a plus.

Next time you are headed to North Jersey make sure you make Biggie’s one of your dining destinations. Biggie’s has delicious food & cocktails, football, a family friendly atmosphere, and a great staff. Just talking about it makes me want a Lychee Martini & their calamari.

Biggie’s is #SCBDApproved!

Cheers!

A Cup o’ Tea a Day Keeps #SCBD Awake!

Good Earth’s Original Sweet & Spicy

They say everything happens for a reason and my love for Good Earth Tea’s Original Sweet and Spicy just proves that. I received my copy of Candice Kumai’s Cook Yourself Sexy and began reading it. I love everything she stands for and she mentioned starting your day off with a cup of tea rather than coffee. At first that idea was hard for me to grasp but I knew I wanted to try it. I began looking at the teas she mentioned trying to figure out what tea I’d buy until it hit me– I just got a shipment of tea in the mail, maybe one of them would be in my shipment. And of course since everything happens for a reason, one of the teas she mentions was in my shipment!

I was super excited to begin my cup of tea lifestyle the next morning at work with a cup of Good Earth Tea’s Original Sweet & Spicy blend!

Quotes on Good Earth tea bags!

Here are the top 3 reasons why I love Good Earth Tea’s Sweet & Spicy blend:

  • I know its corny but I love the quotes on the back of each tea bag. It’s my morning inspiration before I start my work day.
  • The aroma- Sweet & Spicy is an awesome blend of cinnamon with hints of orange. It calms me down and gets me focused for the day.
  • Since I am now a Sweet & Spicy addict I had to buy more at Fairway since I ran out. I got a pack of 25 for $4, which is a nice deal. I’ll give myself another month or so to run out!

Those are just some of the many reasons why I love this tea. I’m already looking forward to my cup of tea tomorrow morning! I highly recommend you try it if you are a tea drinker, it won’t dissapoint! 😀

Have you had this blend before?

I would love to know if you agree with me! Please leave a comment below if you have!
