Grand Army

A new place opened up not too far from me on State Street and Hicks. I have been there twice and it is quite nice.

Beers are a bit on the pricey side and you don't get a pint like in most places. But they have a decent beer selection. Next time I will post it but didn't get a clear picture. But, as you can see, I enjoyed my beer.

They have $1 oysters during happy hour, something of a trend around the neighborhood and one that I am happy to see. And they serve them with an interesting selection of sauces. I could use a bit of just plan horseradish, though. But these were quite good. I liked the chipotle the best.

I slurcked them right down. Not sure what kind they were. Bit of an unusual shape, elongated. But they were very good and decent sized. No complaints from me.

For dinner I had the smoked octopus and it was excellent. I would return just for that, but next time I am going for the steak tartar. If they prepare that as well as the octopus it will be dynamite.

I can't remember for sure what the Mysterious Chinese Woman had but I am guessing it was the striped bass. They don't have a real extensive menu, but what they have, at least what I had, was really good. And she really liked whatever it was she had.

 I apologize for the quality of the pictures. I forgot my camera and so the pictures were taken with a new iPhone and I don't think I had the settings correct. But you can see more by clicking the link.

Stay tuned, I plan on posting more frequently, but certainly not as frequently as I once did.

Been with you since the very beginning! I think we're stuck one block closer. As a retired lifelong New Yorker who has never been to Brooklyn I'm waiting with baited breath for the tour to continue. Hope you're doing well!

Virtual DJ Pro Cracklink is a download software used by DJ to replace their turntables and CD players and to use digital music instead of vinyl and CD. Just as CD players used by DJ offer more options than conventional Hi-Fi CD players, DJ Virtual for Windows offers more options than a simple multimedia player like iTunes. You can “mix” your songs, play two or more tracks at the same time, adjust their relative speed to match their tempo, apply effects like loops, etc. and crossfade from side to side. You can also scratch your songs, set and retrieve cues and all the other regular functions that DJ expects to mix.
