Get It Together, Gristedes
October 14th, 2009 by plumpdumpling

My personal blog, Unapologetically Mundane, is basically all about how despite all of the myth surrounding it, New York City is basically super-janky at its core. Or maybe it’s super-extraordinary at its core but has a thick shell of jankiness surrounding it.

Either way, I should be used to incompetence and laziness by now, but I was still surprised to notice that almost everything I buy at the grocery store down the street from my boyfriend’s apartment is entirely mislabeled.

Yep, dairy soda and frozen condensed milk. Although, the fact that I can buy anything for 99¢ in Manhattan is pretty amazing, so I guess I shouldn’t complain.

    That’s some Louisiana shit, right there.

      From what I hear, Louisiana doesn’t even have card catalogs in their libraries, so this comes as no surprise to me.

    We’re not big fans of Gristedes (or “Dirty’s” as my husband calls it), but we’ve got one a block away from us so in a pinch, we’re there. It was funny when we saw it on “Mad Men” though…

    Btw, thanks for checking out my food blog! ( Always glad to find other NY-based food bloggers!

      Oooooh, I have season 3 of “Mad Men” recording on my DVR but haven’t actually managed to watch seasons 1 and 2 yet, so I guess I have that to look forward to. There’s an Amish Market a few blocks farther than the Gristedes, but it doesn’t have all of the junk food I need, so Gristedes is close to my heart for that.

      I found you while browsing foodbuzz (I’m brand new and have no idea how to use it, basically), and I love your blog! I don’t cook, so I love reading posts that are more than just recipes. If you can recommend any other users along your lines to me, I’d appreciate it.
