I last cleaned up the Grieve menu drawer back in October 2011. (Relive the memories here!)
It was time to do so again: The drawer doesn't easily open. Or close. Too many menus.
Which, as I said at the time, is quite stupid. I usually order from the same few places. But the volume does impress guests.
"Want to order in some food? Great! Here are 768 menus to choose from!"
Until your guest selects something from a place that closed four years ago.
And so — farewell to the menus...
So what does it say about me that I keep all the menus from now-shuttered restaurants so I have sort of a memorial? Hmmm...must ponder...
I feel like menu drawers are one of the last distinctly-New York things. Whenever I'm looking for a new apartment I always make sure there's an extra drawer in the kitchen for them.
I keep all my menus in a disused toilet tank that is painted with a cartoon of Kembra Pfahler from the Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black.
Glenn, you are turning me on.
TOO funny Glenn!
@ Gojira- I still have them. Even from joints on the other side of town that I can't go to anymore :(
I had a neighbor who would collect a few menus from places in other neighborhoods... he'd bring them back and place one under everyone's door on our floor... and we'd all wonder why a place on, say, 92nd and 3rd Ave. would deliver to the East Village....
Use your drawer for somethin else, I know you've got the internet!
