Reservoir Dogs NYC

After meeting up with a few good friends for some drinks at Mirrors on Grand we decided to walk around the neighborhood. We found ourselves on Franklin Avenue. I am not sure how or why we where there. No we were not intoxicated. No one made any suggestions to go in that direction considering none of us lived near Franklin Avenue. I must say it pays to walk around the borough in which you reside. It was this night that I discovered Reservoir dogs.

Reservoir Dogs is a gourmet hot dog shop that allows you to create your own hot dog. The new hot dog shop is conveniently located on 717 Franklin Avenue-corner of Park Place. It is open seven days a week and has late night hours to satisfy your late night cravings. Reservoir Dogs has a option for everyone. The menu consists of all beef hot dogs, beef and pork hot dogs, kosher hot dogs, vegetarian options, sausages and a slew of toppings to create your own hot dog or purchase hot dogs that .

I have a hard time digesting beef, but I love myself a good ole hot dogs or hot sausage. However, they do not love me. Nonetheless, I decided to purchase not one but two hot dogs. My first choice hot dog was "The Coney Island Cyclone" which is topped with chili, chopped onions and ketchup and shredded cheddar cheese. My second choice hot dog was "The New Yorker" topped with sauerkraut and spicy mustard. I have no complaints except they should offer turkey hot dogs as an option for those who cannot or do not eat beef or pork hot dogs. Every bite of both hot dogs were very flavorful. I will definitely return to try the recommended items on the menu.

The downside of this experience... it is now 2am and I am wide awake with heart burn.

Who Do You Identify With In The Sea Of Life?

While attending Medgar Evers College , I was introduced to the worlds renowned author  Ms. Iyanla Vanzant . My public speaking professor began each class with a daily meditation from Acts of Faith which was authored by Ms. Vanzant. Eventually, I purchased this book and a few others. Years later, I continue to read the Acts of Faith. Photo Credit: RaisingBrownGirls While sitting at my desk, I turned to today's meditation and my eyes made it's way to the bottom of the page. The message stated "I know who I am in the sea of life." After reading it, I reversed it and asked myself two questions. "Do you know who you are in the sea of life?" "Who do you identify with in the sea of life?" My eyes scrolled back to the top of the page and I began to read today's daily meditation. As I am reading, I realize I have encountered almost every fish that was mentioned. This made me think about the people I have crossed paths with in the past,

Your Child Is LGBT..It's Not The End Of The World!

I am not a parent of a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT) child, so I cannot say I understand what a parent of a LGBT child is going through. However, I have friends and family members who are and have children who are LGB so I can relate to a certain degree. Growing up I had friends who were gay and who were lesbians. A few of them told me and a few of them hid it from me. Why? I have no idea. What they failed to realize was I already knew, but I wanted them to tell me on their own. It is on no account painless for mothers and fathers to find out that their son or daughter is a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Nor is it any easier for the child to tell their mother, father, friends or other family members that they are or may be a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. I remember the day someone very close to me told me he was attracted to guys. He was so nervous. As he began to speak, he started stuttering and sweating bullets. After he finished speaking I did no
