Bar 13 - Union Square - New York, NY

Happy hour until 9, 2 for 1 drink specials

Gizzi's Coffee - Greenwich Village - New York, NY

For just over $7, you get two absolutely enormous wedges of chicken salad, a hefty dose of dried sprinkled basil, and fresh slices of tomato, all on huge slices of crusty focaccia. I was full after my first sandwich half. And I'll admit it, I was kind of uncomfortably stuffed after the second. I'm surprised I managed to score one of them, but the two cushy seats way in the back by the TV grant ready access to power outlets, and it's just plain fun to sink into their squishy embrace. If you don't mind getting a little messy while you eat, and you aren't an ergonomic posture Nazi, they're arguably the best seats in the house.

MaximoPino Cafe - Greenwich Village - Manhattan, NY

Oh the gelato! thank you for FINALLY providing me with some gelato which makes me think I'm back in Italy. I haven't been in while so I cant be sure that my memory of what I ate when I was there is completely accurate. But the stuff here and the variety of flavors is the closest I have tasted and entirely satisfying. My one complaint on this would be sometimes I just want a little of one flavor... they could probably do well with a smaller "small" which only has one flavor instead of what they have now which is like a 6 oz cup that comes with two flavors. The next and only size up comes with three flavors. I wonder when, if ever, they will start providing pints.... About the atmosphere: yes its a bit sterile. It could be half the size and still an effective efficient Italian bistro, gelato bar. But at least you know there will be a place for you to sit when you get there. AND in the back there are comfy chairs. YES!

Gizzi's Coffee - Greenwich Village - New York, NY

I am endlessly on a quest to find a coffee shop that isn't packed with people I know/hate/more specifically avoid/make fun of and I found Gizzi's!! WHOOOO SOOOOOOOO it was super quaint and quiet, and it was really warm and a terrific place to study. There is a cool variety of people, so don't feel as if you don't fit in if you're not cool and hip like me (yeah ok).


Latest NBC Poll: Obama is in Surprisingly Good Shape

While his support among white voters has slipped a few points since the last poll, he actually does better among whites against McCain than Clinton, losing the white vote 49-38, as opposed to 53-38 for Clinton. The 11-point deficit among whites might look discouraging, but it’s important to keep in mind that Kerry lost the white vote by 17 points in 2004. Obama is only 3 points below Kerry’s percentage of the white vote (41%), while McCain is 9 points behind Bush’s 58% (the rest are undecided).

Quantitative Analysis - Why Ferraro's Claims are Inaccurate

Much has already been said about Geraldine Ferraro’s controversial comments implying that Obama wouldn’t be where he is if he were white (or a woman). The purpose of this post is not to attack or defend her comments, but to test her hypothesis that Clinton has been hampered by her gender while Obama has been helped by his race by looking at the exit poll numbers for people who said that a candidate’s race or gender had any influence on their vote.


Daily Kos: Delta Pension Fails; Pilots Get Screwed

The Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. said Friday it has formally taken over the pilots' pension plan at Delta Air Lines, and it expects to be responsible for paying out close to $1 billion in benefits not covered by the plan's assets. The move was approved by Delta's bankruptcy judge and the PBGC last year. It represents the sixth-largest pension liability the PBGC has taken on in its 32-year history, the PBGC said. The quasi-federal agency said the Delta pilots' plan is under-funded by about $3 billion, with $4.7 billion in obligations and $1.7 billion in assets.

The Blog | Steven Hill: Memo to Democrats: Reverse NLRB's Decisions on Workers' Rights | The Huffington Post

With the Democratic Party regaining control of Congress for the first time since 1994, Democratic leaders should look to undo the effects the Bush administration has had on American workers. But that won't be easy, because one institution that remains sol
