Gut Check

Does anyone else still read the free weekly NY Press? Yes, it’s made of paper, you can’t download it to your iPadAppDroid (yet), and you have to retrieve it out of a pee soaked plastic box on the sidewalk. But don’t let that stop you. If nothing else it’s worth it for the gloriously entertaining Gut Instinct column by Joshua M. Bernstein. For years we’ve been following Josh’s adventures around town as he impressively subsists on a diet of mainly fried dumplings and beer while he explores the city on a quest for the best ethnic food (like tiny blood pumpers) and craziest dive bars (RIP Navy Yard Cocktail Lounge). Along with Josh’s  vegetarian girlfriend, meat (girl)friend Julie, and drinking buddy Aaron, this gang knows how to eat and drink New York. Or at least get drunk and full trying. To keep up with Josh and his crew, check out his blog My Gut Instinct for frequent updates on craft beer reviews, dollar food finds, and of course an archive of the Gut Instinct columns.
