It is funny that after a thread about groceries or other things you can find here. I got a call yesterday from European friends that just got to Manhattan on Saturday. When visiting me, they fell in love with Texas Pete hot sauce which I don't particularly like. They called and begged me to send them some to NYC as they have been everywhere and it is not sold there. I went to HT, bought a couple of good size bottles and shipped it out this morning. Funny how those things work out. I just hope they don't have an immediate need for other local delicacies like livermush, good catfish, hushpuppies, or great sweatened ice tea they have learned to appreciate.

Stop signs at the end of on ramps. Drivers who don't use turn signals (for the most part). Roads and streets that change names every mile. Bad bagels and Pizza.
Just to name a few.

The postings I was to which I was refering was concerning grocery items. We have already decided that most drivers around here (65% of them) are from other states, therefore we concluded that it is more likely that te poor driver will be an outsiders with poor driving habits. Do you have a clue how many northerners fail the N.C. drivers license test?

Additionally, likes and dislikes concerning bagels and pizza are in the eyes of the beholder. If you think that all bagels and pizza are bad here, just go back and look at all of the recommendations by New Yorkers. They are out there. You won't find them at Dominos. It seems that the two foods that are good in NY (pizza and bagels) are not to your liking here. Hopefully, you eat only bagels that have been blessed by the rabbi or you aren't eating the real thing.

Dry some cheese grits with shrimp.

You did say things that you can get locally but not in NYC. Texas Pete is in the NYC area. We used to buy it at Shop Rite and A&P. Heres a link to another story about Texas Pete in NY.

Second the motion. Thread has all the making of "put on your face masks". Already has information that is incorrect.

Thanks I will Email this info. Of course Manhattan doesn't have that many large grocery stores, mostly momma and poppa places.

First, a bagal isn't officially a bagal until blessed. You might as well buy Lender's at the grocery store. By they way, they aren't bad.

Secondly, I know that you can get cheese grits with shrimp in the city but you don't have Catwaba River water to make them taste special.
