We Interrupt Our Regularly Scheduled Posting !!!!

Every September in Little Italy, Manhattan the San Gennaro Feast takes place. This year the 87th annual feast takes place September 12th to the 22nd. My wife and I made the trip this year as in past years and the food was spectacular. All of the photos in this post were taken on Mulberry Street because we ate way too much and couldn’t walk any further.

We had dinner at a restaurant called Amici II which is pictured below (looked like a place straight out of the movie Goodfellas).

Of course there were the usual street vendors and restaurants that set up outdoor dining and cooking facilities so the smells will overload your senses as you walk down the street.

    • Thank you Norma. Just make sure you don’t eat for a week before, LOL. Make sure to check the dates I think it changes every year but it’s always in September. 😀

    The series of photos is really great! You’ve captured the spirit of the event; the colors, sights, sounds. Could you not have done something to share what must have been the amazing smells?
    Seriously though … excellent post, Joe!

    • I think Apple is coming out with a scratch and sniff iPad, LOL. I have to tell you LB we ate so much we really felt like lying down and taking a nap. And I behaved perfectly I didn’t drink so much that I had to use my cufflinks as curb feelers, LOL. The food was great and the pastries from Ferrara were outstanding. Thanks for commenting and I’m glad you enjoyed it. Now if I could just find my shoes ! 😀
