W.M.D.s found at Wafel & Dinges

Wafel truck at Central Park.
Belgian waffles are the bane of the college freshmen diet. Thankfully statistics have proven that the "freshmen 15" is completely myth.

So go out an celebrate by eating a waffle! Specifically at Wafels & Dinges. It is one of the original gourmet food trucks that roved around New York City streets leaving a trail of spekuloos spread.

Throwdown Wafel - spekuloos spread and whipped cream.

Words really can't describe a waffle at Wafels & Dinges. You just need to try it. If you're not sure what to order, the staff is ready to assist in answer all questions. Personal recommendations include the ThrowDown wafel (the wafel combination of whipped cream and spekuloos that won against Bobby Flay), a Chili corn wafel (limited-time special), and a W.M.D.

Bacon Liege - waffle with bacon bits in the batter and drizzled with maple syrup.

Waffles of Mass Delicious. For $7 you purchase a waffle and can have as many toppings (dinges) as you like.

Chili Corn Wafel - veggie chili, corn, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and parsley

The other thing you need to know is that these waffles are excellent hiders. So the best way to capture one is to follow their Twitter @waffletruck or at local stalls at the annual holiday fairs in Union Square, Columbus Circle, and Bryant Park.

What are you waiting for?

2012 Holiday Window Displays in NYC

Holidays are often the best times for tourists with chance to see New York City during their vacation.  For New Yorkers its also a time to brood and avoid all the any plans that involve remotely going near main points of traffic.

However there is one that thing that both tend to enjoy is the holiday window displays.  People line up and wait just to see what will light up and what new themes stores have come up with.

Like the ice rinks that open, the special markets that open during this time of year, stores get into the season by decorating their windows with images that inspire anyone to take their camera out. I personally recommend starting midtown and walking up. Depending on the time of day you can visit them all in one day - be prepared to brave crowds and have your walking shoes on.

See Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson for $50

Ever imagined what any of our founding fathers would be if they were a twenty-something, emo rock star? From the mind of Michael Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is a musical rendition about just that. Dealing with populism, the Indian Removal act, and of course making time for his wife Rachel, Andrew Jackson has complicated life story that can only be illustrated through song and dance.

The producers of the show would like to show their political support with their "Jackson for a Grant" initiative which offers $50 tickets to the show through November 24th.

Just use the code BBJVOTE when you purchase your tickets on or purchase tickets at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater box office (242 West 45th Street, Manhattan); or by call (212) 947-8844.
