Queens Museum and Screamers!!!
Breakfast, earlyish but filling enough to fuel a full day.
Met Jarrod in Long Island City early afternoon so we could take the 7 train together out to the Queens museum. We were both a bit hungry and knew eating in that neighborhood would be easier than out in Flushing Meadows. Stopped at Court Square diner, which is pretty basic but right next to the train and inexpensive.
The Queens museum currently has a Ramones exhibit. It's up until the end of the month! Pretty cool stuff, and worth a visit for sure.
This was a different part of the museum; it's Dia de los Muertos decorated faces of people killed by the police. The tall Mexican religious candles along the bottom are all marked Evidence.
We jumped on the train back and got off in Greenpoint, having heard the RUCKUS about the new all-vegan pizza joint, Screamers. It's owned by the same people who do Blackbird in Philly but for some reason I wasn't impressed with the pizza I saw there. These slices look so much fresher and more inventive. Yes, they do use Daiya.
