Each time I visit the city I look forward to fabulous shopping, restaurants, going out with friends, and seeing the sights. Unfortunately, I can’t do it quite as often as I’d like to. Even when I lived in nearby Rhode Island, I’d have to ration my visits to the Big Apple.
When I travel I love doing “it all” and that means SPENDING. Of all of the cities that I visit, NYC seems to take the biggest bite out of my wallet. Oh, I expect to drop a few dollars from Saks to Century 21, but the BIGGEST wallet drainer is usually food and drink. I know that I’m a sucker for the latest review in New York magazine, but as I learned on my last visit, you don’t have to spend a fortune to have a great time.
You just have to know where to go.

Right off Union Square you will find a mexican restaurant and upstairs bar that will keep you coming back. The food is teriffic and the “happy hour” bar specials are amazing. Upstairs Monday through Friday at 6pm, El Cantinero offers a FREE buffet that includes wings and chicken chimichangas. My favorite restaurant deal is that you get FREE chips and salsa with a drink order. $4 drinks include Frozen and Flaovored Margaritas, Sangria Pina Colodas and well drinks. They also offer 16 beer choices for $4. Stay for dinner and try the Guacamole or the Enchiladas Suizas.
