I know this is probably not the right place to post, but i thought i would give it a shot.
Head down to....uh....um.....eh......
Out of Time Square, Really Little Italy, Off Broadway, North Central Park, Nationalist China Town
How sad is it when the main attraction of your town are sporting events?
they pump the fact that they have the oldest Pizza Hut:wow::wow:
The Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art
A perfect location for the beach museum Or is that her name?
Can't beat the little places in the Village or SoHo.:thumbsup:
After cruising the main drag, which looks like it had been impacted by a 40megaton Wal Mart Superstore, we retreated to the Manhattan Mall food court for some Imperial Panda. Don't relive my mistake. I've got nothing.
As a Colo. History Buff, I'd point out that Horace & Augusta Tabor moved to a homestead in Zeandale, KS, which is 8 miles E of Manhattan on HWY 18. It would be cool to stand at that site, and imagine going from being a broke sawdbuster/Indian fighter to one of the wealthiest and most colorful of Coloradans simply by getting the hell out of Kansas, moving to Leadville and striking a fortune at the Matchless Mine.
Then again, the cemetery could be more lively.
If you want to drink, head to the 'Ville. Auntie Mae's and O'Malleys are two that I enjoy. People will tell you Rusty's or Kite's but those are the "greek" bars.
If you want to eat, Harry's (downtown on Poyntz) is great, 4 Olives wine and martini bar is good, or check out the Little Grill, which is near Tuttle Creek, good jamaican cuisine. Just depends on what you like, but those 3 places are unique to Manhattan, and kind of "out of the way".
Things to see - From what i've been told, KSU gardens, Beech museum are supposed to be interesting. Campus is pretty. Manhattan Town Center is just another mall. If you are in town tonight you can check out Bramlage coliseum, we are having our "Madness in Manhattan" event which showcases the basketball team and our future NBA prospects
"Sawdbuster?" I thought it was "sodbuster."
Hey, have you been to Bent's Old Fort or the Sand Creek Massacre site? I was lucky enough to get out to the Sand Creek site during the beginning stages of making it a National Historic Site. It is very eerie to stand on the bluff where the militia set up and look down by the creek where the Native Americans camped and then to visualize in your mind the massacre. It was sobering to me. Especially to think that our forfathers could look down on the indians so much as to render them subhuman to the point that murdering men, women, and children did not burn into their souls. :sad2:
Oops, breif moment of softness exhibited by DBT.
Our forefathers in Colorado were particularly brutal with the Indians. Probably moreso here than in any other state. Part of that has to do with the fact that if you were in the military in Colorado, you either had to fight indians or fight the confederates. Indians didn't fight back. :huh:
Sawdbuster - must have had my head stuck in the grusome experiment thread.
You had better watch it, buster! :lol:
I hear they have an Applebees out by the interstate. :wow:
Separate names with a comma.
