Happy New Year — or it would be if I was not so mad at one MichaelJ Flores. Steaming mad. Sooooooo mad.
OK, not actually mad but he did deprive me of getting banana pudding and that is hard to forgive. I spent the afternoon with Mike wandering around the Lower East Side, eating Berkshire Pork Belly, and talking about the fresh Extended season that lies ahead of us. Along the way we ended up at a desert place called Sugar Sweet Sunshine and he suggested that I get a Yum Yum Bar, insisting it was the best treat they made. I was skeptical but I got it. As we were leaving I saw a sign on the inside of the door that read: “Do You Dream of Pudding”, which is something I indeed do dream of.
As I read further they discussed their upcoming pudding tasting and, specifically, their banana pudding.
“Mike, did you know this place has banana pudding?”
I will leave the rest to the listener to discover for themselves but suffice it to say the Yum Yum Bar was not the correct play.
