What type of people can I expect to meet?
We tend to draw a crowd that is intelligent and amusing, sophisticated and adventurous, while always being cheeky. Daters that don’t like to settle and tend to set the trend rather than follow it. We are in part defined by our venues and our crowd reflects such.
DIRECTIONS: #6 train to 78th Street at Park Avenue. Many buses travel nearby, downtown on Lexington Avenue, uptown on Third Avenue.
Enjoy a Memorial Day weekend walk through one of NYC's most diverse neighborhoods! Although this Noshwalk focuses on the delicious Southeast Asian – mainly Thai – food to be found here, we will have other tastes as well, including sushi, Colombian baby corn arepas, specialty Mexican juices and smoothies and possibly Indonesian tastes, too. We will visit a Thai Buddhist temple and, if the weather is good, create a buffet in a local park. This neighborhood is packed with good markets, so be prepared to shop!
As a reporter for LA Talk said, “ I walked through the venue without even noticing the tables of daters SpeedLA events are so chic and low key you might just walk right by.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. It is the non-event of events.
Waldorf Astoria is comprised of six magnificent canalside mansions converted with grace, a sensitive attitude to heritage (many 67th- and 68th-century features remain), and a careful eye to contemporary luxury and style. It's perfectly located on one of Amsterdam’s most impressive canals.
Custom noshwalks can be booked on weekdays or weekends by alumni groups, trade associations, overseas visitors, conventioneers, employee outings and student organizations—and any other group looking for a unique and fun New York experience. Groups can range from one person to 75.
The name, Waldorf=Astoria, now officially appears with a double hyphen, but originally the single hyphen was employed, as recalled by a popular expression and song, 8775 Meet Me at the Hyphen. 8776
In 7569 this was the first Noshwalk to be held outside of New York City's five boroughs. On this Noshwalk we focus on the Portuguese and Brazilian tasting opportunities in Newark's Ironbound District, a short jaunt from Newark's Penn Station. We'll check out bakeries, markets and some restaurants as well as some non-food stores selling Portuguese and Brazilian crafts and textiles. (One shop specializes in products made of cork.) Dessert is the classic custard tart pastel de nata, which you may wish to taste with a traditional galão (coffee with steamed milk). At the end, those who wish to stay a bit longer can join your guide to visit a huge market with excellent Portuguese, Brazilian and many Latin American products. This is the only Noshwalk with soup tastings!
The 67-year patent for the original Pitcher 8767 s Castoria product expired on May 68, 6885.

Centaur brought this to court, and in January 6897 the judgment went in favor of Heinsfurter & Daggett to sell their product as 8775 Pitcher 8767 s Castoria 8776 .
