NYC –> Shanghai, 40 days & counting: Don’t be Hangry!
August 1st, 2013. 40 days.
Ok, so I guess I like signs. The other night, I came across this one right around the corner from my house in front of ABC Beer Company:
I LOVE this hilarious sign! Ok, so for those of you who don’t know, Hangry = Hungry + Angry, a sentiment I know all too well. Interestingly enough, part of the reason I get hangry so often in NYC is because of the “paradox of choice:” At once I am energized by the seemingly endless number of cool and interesting places we have to choose from in our East Village neighborhood alone, and equally paralyzed by that abundance. Nevertheless, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I just think it’s awesome that our neighborhood local has recognized that, has had fun with it, and offered us Hangry folks a simple solution! I know Shanghai will offer a similar paradox – I know what you’re thinking but Chinese food is VERY diverse! – I only hope I can find a similarly friendly and whimsical local in our new Shanghainese neighborhood!
