Investigative Reports: Uptown Phenomenon.

For the past few years, when I hang out Uptown (Harlem, Spanish Harlem, Washington Heights), I’ve been seeing people selling and buying nutcrackers. Everyone up there seems to be in the know and enjoys them.

A few questions..

1. When did people start making them?
2. Wtf is in em?

All my friends from uptown say they are good, but to “be careful cuz people sometimes put shit in em”. WTF??

How’d something that seems so simple and colorful become such a phenomenon?

I’m on the case to find out exactly.

Stay tuned…

    • My question is, as an adult — one who no longer needs the surreptitious, and one who can appreciate good booze — should I seek out the Nutcracker, the Nemo, or any of these? Or am I better sticking to my Chateau Neufe de Pap?
      (Ok, no, I’m not drinking Grand Cru Burgundy on a regular basis, but I do feel I’m past the point where I need to mix ridiculous amounts of sugar with my Ethanol).

      Also, I love the blog. Keep up the good word.

      • OCC I highly recommend The Mighty Nutcracker if not only for the great taste, but the adventure of purchase. It’s become a New York street signature like Juniors Cheesecake or Philly cheesesteak.

        As for those beverages you mention, I will have to research them for further exploration, but I do have a special blog coming up soon for a true wine connoisseur such as yourself.

        Thanks for checking out the blog.
