The Frying Pan

>> Tuesday, April 28, 2009

I am still blown away that I did not know about this little piece of heaven sooner than this previous Sunday. The Frying Pan is an old, historic boat that is docked just north of Chelsea Piers on the Hudson River, um, aka PERFECTION. It seriously just is perfection in it's purest form. 

Having spent a decent amount of time in the South, and a generous portion of that time at the beach, I do miss day-drinking by the water and feeling that light breeze on my burnt skin while sipping on a Corona or some other delicious light beer synonymous with happiness. The frying pan offered me this scenario but they took it up a notch in more than one way. 

First off, when you turn around you are looking uptown on the west side towards the Time Warner center and Times Square, not a bad view in my opinion, and then when you look across the river you can see New Jersey and all the homes that dot the shoreline, then if you look south, you see her, Lady Liberty. Couple that with a DJ spinning some techno tunes that I completely 
didn't know and were all sans any sort of verbiage, this was the best Sunday afternoon I have had in a long time. 

If you are looking for the perfect place to drink your afternoon away this is the perfect place! Not to mention that after a long day you can walk off whatever buzz you might have obtained along the beautiful west side highway park. 

I can undoubtedly say that I will be returning very soon :)

By far, my favorite spot in NYC! If its nice on Sunday were going again.....Sundays might be the new Saturdays!

I totally agree. After this weekend Sundays might really be the new Saturday.

I am intrigued with drinking during the day so I can't wait to try this place out.LOL

Day drinking is the way to go, especially on Sundays, because you drink just enough to feel good then pass out and get a full nights sleep before Monday :)
