    BTW they're at hellotushy dot com. Don't just search on "tushy". Trust me on that.

    Thanks all.

    We have the Tushy in our master bedroom. Nice, but if you have the cash, spring for one that warms the water. Let's just say that it can be a little, um, bracing in the midwinter.

    If we're going to Katz's, feel free to order for me whatever kind of sandwich you'd like to eat . . . I'll be perfectly happy just to have the fries and slaw.

    If I could monetize my encyclopedic knowledge of random 80s movie and song quotes, I would be really rich.

    Later this week I am taking CNC Jr. #1 to Junior's in midtown to meet up with one of his buddies who he hasn't seen since pre-covid. The are best known for cheesecake but also have high quality NY deli food - not Katz's but close enough.

    I meant Katzís is better for sandwiches and such. Juniors is better for cheesecake. Katzís is somewhat out of the way while Juniors has more convenient locations, though that also makes it touristy. It seems tourists are returning to NYC. I will have a better feel when we are in Times Square later this week.

    I worked a few blocks from there from late 2010 until early 2016. Good spot. We would order in from Leo's for periodic staff bagel breakfasts.

    Ess-a-bagel is probably my current favorite. When the Upper West Side H&H was around (across from Zabar's) I lived very close - for a while I went to a gym that was directly above it, which was really dangerous. They just sold bagels - couldn't get anything on it or anything like that. But they were the best. They closed around 2011. My son was just starting on solids when they closed so I made sure he had one.

    I have been to Katz's dozens of times, and have a good feel for the place and pace, and while I've seen zillions of people get the sandwiches, the drinks, the fries, I do not EVER recall anyone making it down to the big pastry case at the end of the line. You have to have an extra special kind of capacity to eat a sandwich and fries, and still have room for a wad of cake that is bigger than your head. I've leered at the cakes more than a few times, but never had room for them...
