My take on the Lower East Side in Manhattan?
I’m too old to hangout there.

But the neighborhood is chock-full of amazing chow (more about that later) and my cousin’s band, Pony Express, had a midnight (!) gig at the Cake Shop last weekend.  As I said, with a start time like like that... I’m WAY too old to be hanging out in LES, but it was pretty awesome to see Rob on lead vocals.
