Welcome to Holland! (Tunnel, that is)
(cheesey embedded video of the Holland Tunnel below)
Hello pretty lady!
Now we're getting close.
Destination: Nathan's Famous at Coney Island, home of the 4th of July hot dog eating contest!
Chili cheese and bacon cheese dogs, bladder bursting sized Coors Light, fries, a pretzel, and cupcakes. That's what I'm talking about!
Oh baby. In this heat, this self proclaimed beer snob wouldn't have wanted anything else. A micro brew or something heavier just wouldn't do.
And now, the moment we have all been waiting for. Are they as good as they look?
You better believe it!
I wish I could say that in that despite the intense heat and direct sun and after stuffing myself silly that I rode Coney Island's famous roller coaster the Cyclone as I had planned. Sadly, my stomach demanded that I save it for another day. However, Mark and Alexander rode the Tickler and loved every second of it.
I was treated with a fabulous summer thunderstorm on the drive home and the icing on the (cup)cake? Well, as Mark said, not many people get a rainbow on their birthday.
