09/19/09 Social Networking In Greenwich: Thumbs Up And Thumbs Down On Yelp

Brice P.'s Review of Abis Japanese Traditional Restaurant - Greenwich (3/5) on Yelp:
They flip shrimp in your mouth and cook on huge grills right in front of your eyes. Need I say more? The food is a way overpriced and this is probably a good example of why hibachi isn't popular in…

Brice P.'s Review of Rinaldi's Deli of Greenwich - Greenwich (5/5) on Yelp:
This is the best town deli I've ever been to, hands down. (It tops most of the best NYC delis too.) They use top-quality Boars Head meats and terrific bread. My favorites are their hot deli sandwiches…

Brice P.'s Review of Garden Catering - Old Greenwich (5/5) on Yelp:
Heart attack in a bag: toss some chicken and potatoes into boiling oil, put it in a bag, sprinkle seasoning on it, and give it a shake. Then hand it over with some BBQ sauce. I am in heaven. This is…

Brice P.'s Review of AMC Loews Port Chester 14 - Port Chester (4/5) on Yelp:
The Greenwich/Port Chester area has needed a real theater for a while. This fits the bill. While the mayor and town of Port Chester are morons for giving the waterfront away to a Mall, Theater and…

Brice P.'s Review of Colony Grill - Stamford (5/5) on Yelp:

Brian O.'s Review of Wong James Laundry & Dry Cleaners - Old Greenwich (1/5) on Yelp: These people are crooks. They tried to charge me over $50 just to wash and iron a set of queen size bedsheets... $36 for the fitted & flat sheets, and $20+ for the 4 pillow cases.

BMW R1150 Rockster 80th Edition $9090
The bike is in great condition 12,200 miles. Recent tires. Ridden every season. Well maintained. Can ride 2-up or replace the rear seat for the plastic luggage panel. Tank bag included as well. Collector's DVD included. PRICE IS FIRM; Serious inquires only. This is a rare find for the right buyer. BMW made 2003 of these bikes and only sold 200 in the US. This bike is practically brand new with 2500mi. The special anniversary addition came with ABS brakes, heated grips, and saddle bags. It also has powdercoated white wheels. Its a blast to ride, good torque and versatile. Comfortable upright riding position. Here is a clip from an article describing the inauguration: To commemorate the company's 80th anniversary, BMW began offering a special edition 2004 R1150R Rockster (see Rider, July 2003) last April. The Alpine White and Sapphire Black Metallic bike comes with a black dual seat, heated grips, Integral ABS and a blue badge with "80 Years" in script lettering. Buy one and you'll also get a commemorative folder with a certificate of authenticity and a booklet documenting 80 years of BMW Motorrad. BMW says that only 2003 (get it?) 80th anniversary Rocksters will be built and sold worldwide, and the plan at this writing was for 200 to be available to U.S. buyers...but the only way to take delivery was at the factory as part of a week-long trip to Germany included in the bike's $16,490 price ($3,500 over the Rockster's $12,990 MSRP). Though it's probably too late to make the June 29-July 7 trip you may still be able to get an 80th anniversary Rockster if you want one--see your BMW dealer.

LOTS OF GREAT TECH HIKING CAMPING GOLF THULE & WEBER GRILL - see list
Do you find yourself driving around all over Stamford, Norwalk, New Canaan, Darien, Greenwich, Westport, Wilton, Ridgefield, and Fairfield....
and all you find at tag sales is a bunch of bric & brac, musty smelling lamps that have been sitting in the attic or garage, broken stereo components with no power cords, clothes that have been worn and may have who knows what on it, used bed sheets, glassware that sells for .25-50 each at Goodwill (yes, Go to Goodwill and help them out by buying their nice clean glassware), baby strollers, and shoes (believe me, I wouldn't put my feet in them)....
WHY?
I have posted on craigslist everything I have for sale. Product names. Google them for details. Prices posted in listing too. If you want to make an offer, do. Many contact me daily and I keep finding more. Everything is clean, and/or brand new. I donate a lot of childrens books and clothes. I donate books, penciles, and other school items to the shelter.
What I have for sale are tech and computer equipment, backpacking equipment, Ansel Adams posters and photography books, weights and physical fitness items, camera equipment, golf items, cycling, stereo components, Bose speakers, etc etc etc. You find that at tag sales? I can provide pictures, and I have many posted.
SO.....it's easy....instead of driving around on a beautiful Saturday or Sunday to spend money on merchandise that will end up clogging your closet....
CONTACT ME AT 203-273-9299. CALL ME...that is the best way to get it. Thanks.
