In March, I met up with some of my old college friends to attend the Big East Tournament at Madison Square Garden. Our team was eliminated early, but we did see some excellent games involving UConn, Syracuse, Georgetown, and Cincinnati. I also enjoyed MSG's $16 corned beef sandwich, complete with 4 inches of meat. We stayed at a hotel on 50th street, just off Broadway.

Despite the tournament, the high point for me was visiting Walker's, a pub in TriBeCa owned by my former college roommate Jerry. He also owns Girello's, an Italian eaterie next door.

Walker's is an extremely popular (check out the reviews!) old-school pub with hammered tin ceilings and ancient mahogany woodwork. There are two dining rooms in the back. The food is wonderful, and Jerry kept the freebie appetizers coming. His bartenders and servers did, however, benefit from his largesse.
