The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    What To Do In Nyc ???

    Ok This is the first of many threads about my Holiday.

    I will be in NYC for 5 day between 3rd August and 8th. Then LA and Vegas (see other thread)

    I have a few questions to ask those who live there or know the city.

    1) Where should I stay ? What area ? Somewhere cheap, but lively and where Im not gonna get stabbed to death.

    2) Where should I eat ? Come on ..... name some good places to eat nice food .... and lots of it.

    3) Where should I buy clothes ? I want some cheap places to shop and get some nice designer closes ... like Gucci and Tommi etc etc. Clothes Outlets ?

    4) What nightclubs should I go to ??? Where all the hot chicks go ??

    5) Lap Dancing clubs ?? OK 5 guys wanna see some girls strip ... where's the top clubs at ?

    6) Sight seeing stuff ?? What should I look at ??

    7) General stuff ? Anything else ya suggest ?



    Thanks bro's I'm forever in your debt. Hopefully I'll get to see ya in person to thank ya.

    Anyone in NYC less than 100% italian might as well paint a big bullseye on their chest. lol, just kidding.

    Well, I don't eat or shop there often, but I do go out in NYC every few weeks or so. It really depends on what kind of night out you enjoy. I usually go to Exit, Soundfactory, or Twilo because I like hearing good house music and staying out until noon. Webster hall may be a good bet. They have several different areas, each playing different music. It's a huge club.

    As far as strip clubs go, you only need to visit one - SCORES. This is the greatest strip club in the city. A girl I dated works there - if you can find Lauren, tell her you're a friend of mine and she'll give you a free dance. Watch out though, because she is mentally unstable and probably very dangerous. lol

    1) Where should I stay ? What area ? Somewhere cheap, but lively and where Im not gonna get stabbed to death.

    ~~~~well your chances of getting stabbed to death in new york don't really have anything to do with where you stay, it could happen anywhere at any time..*lol*

    right now my current favorites are: 3030 and Habitat

    2) Where should I eat ? Come on ..... name some good places to eat nice food .... and lots of it.

    ~~~pfft. There is no one place. NYC has the best food in the world, and really some of the street shops have the best food. that's something to just discover along the way.

    3) Where should I buy clothes ? I want some cheap places to shop and get some nice designer closes ... like Gucci and Tommi etc etc. Clothes Outlets ?

    ~~~~I'd say canal, but most of the stuff there is ripoffs. you're not necessraily gonna find good clothes cheap, altho you could check the garment district. of course with the exchange rate, you might actually find lots for cheaper then you can back home, but i would say SOHO is a good place to start. That's where Armani Exchange is and a couple others.

    4) What nightclubs should I go to ??? Where all the hot chicks go ??

    ~~~~I'll go with what gino said. most of the clubs i know are techno, house anyways. Webster Hall has been ace for a long time. Your best bet is to pick up a copy of the Village Voice when you get there, and look in the club listings. it usualy has ads from a bunch of clubs with who's doing what there for the week.

    5) Lap Dancing clubs ?? OK 5 guys wanna see some girls strip ... where's the top clubs at ?

    ~~~*defers to gino and his psycho stripper ex-gf or whatever*

    6) Sight seeing stuff ?? What should I look at ??

    ~~~WTC definitely altho i hate to think of it is as a sight-seeing thing.

    everything you do in NYC is sightseeing, really. I'd say Time Square, but it's been disneyfied. Greenwich Village, Central Park.

    Broadway. that's the best place to see random famous people walking around.

    7) General stuff ? Anything else ya suggest ?

    ~~~~ the world is your oyster.

    I think Tryska gave you some pretty good advice. The only thing I would disagree with that she said is the food - overall, I think dollar for dollar, NYC has some of the worst food anywhere. If you have serious $$$ you can eat at some great places though.

    How many nights are you there for and how much are you budgeting yourself to per day, roughly?

    My brother works in the Marriot Marquis in Times Square. Think it's a little pricey, but hey, you can meet my twig of a brother. He goes to lots of clubs too and is an aspiring DJ. I'll try and get a hold of him and ask him about some clubs.

    I have heard great thigs about Scores if you want to go that route.


    I'll tell my brother to watch out for a tall-ass Limey wide-as-a-house mofo with a weird accent incase you make it to his restaurant for a night.


    PS- you know you want to hit up the Blue Oyster bar...stop denying it!!

    I would start by Pricelining a hotel, offer cheap and go 3 or 4 stars -- that should be your best bet. The hotels Tryska suggested are a very good rate though, but Priceline should be cheaper.

    You'll want to buy a one week metro card for transportation purposes (unlimited ride is $17 for the week).

    Once you know where you're going to be staying we can recommend places in the area to eat. It's a big city.

    Hogs and Heffers is a pretty wild bar. Think Coyote Ugly without the bad acting. There are two of them. The one in the meat packing district is pretty hardcore. Also, the Village Idiot is a bar with some unbelievably attractive waitresses. It gets pretty packed though.
    That said, look at Chase. He is bigger than Arnold was at the same age. Now, he doesn't quite have the Arnold shape, but for pure muscle mass he has more.

    He works at the Marriot Marquis(sp?) It is right in Times Square. Right near the MTV studio and the ESPN sports bar..which is another place you might want to go. I ate there once. It's sweet. He works in the restaraunt called J.W.'s. I haven't eaten there myself, but it is supposedly really nice. You won't be getting a $6.00 hamburger there though and I'm sure the drinks aren't exactly cheap.

    For clubs webster and exit would be the best(stepdad bounced at webster, only been in exit once, im 16). If you wanna try something crazy you could try the tunnel on sunday(only cause your big enough to be left alone).
    Restuarants you could always hit the dim sum places in chinatown or my uncles place. NYC is really expensive, wont find any designer clothes cheap unless the labels are stapled on.
