Queens Museum and Screamers!!!

Breakfast, earlyish but filling enough to fuel a full day.

oats, coconut, goji berries, bananas, chia seeds, almonds, almond milk. Ice coffee, also with almond milk
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.

Tossed salad - onions, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, olives. I wanted fresh vegetables and this is what they had. I ain't that picky.

side of fries that J and I shared. He ordered a veggie burger, which came very, very unadorned. But it did the job.

               Jarrod in front of the Unisphere. This whole park was built for the 1939 World's Fair.
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.

Jarrod got the special Buffalo chicken slice in the front, I got the white slice (broccoli rabe and carmelized onions, are you kidding??)

J also got a slice of the Supreme. Everything was mucho mucho bueno. Kinda expensive? maybe? Buttttt whatever?


  1. That pizza looks amazing! Go on, how much was it? X

    1. Haha okay so not THAT much, but I think the special slice was $4 a piece? I guess I'm just used to seeing dollar slices of regular pizza everywhere around the city.

  2. Very cool Ramones exhibit! And I love the shot in front of the globe sculpture!

    Practically drooling for that pizza

    1. The pizza!! I am drooling remembering it.

  3. The name of the place leads one to believe that one would be screaming in ecstacy from the 'za. Is it so?

    1. I heard a rumor that their name came from the screaming sound of the cooking mushrooms in the pan - their eponymous slice is a Screamers slice with garlic oil, cheese, oyster and cremini mushrooms, parsley, and almond parmesan :)

    2. You took some delight in writing that sentence
