New York City gets Garrett’s Popcorn Shop!!!

All my peoples from Chicago know exactly what time it is. Garretts Popcorn Shop is a staple in the windy city. They make the BEST popcorn EVER. You gotta get the Cheese x Caramel corn mix otherwise known as “The Mix.”

If you’ve been following the Blog for a while then you know everytime I hit Chicago this is a top priority on my to do list. Well… recently I had been hearing from a few people in Chicago that Garrett’s was opening up a shop in New York City.

In the Chi, people line up for popcorn. I’ve seen lines around lunch time that stretched a whole block long downtown.

After doing a lil investigating, I found Garrett’s had opened up 3 popcorn shops in Manhattan in 2007. So you know while I was in town I had to go in right!!! Check the pics…

You have to watch your back when you have Garrett’s. I think my mother was trying to rob me when she found out I had the mix. It’s that serious!!! For those who think I’m exaggerating. Check out what Halle Berry thinks about Garrett’s.

Halle Berry will marry a can of Garrett’s Popcorn before she marries another brotha. I’m about to figure out how to make some Caramel corn cologne! LOL

Now I can get Garrett’s in Nueva York, I cant say when I’ll be traveling back to Chicago. All I need now is a Giordono’s, Harold’s Chicken and some Jay’s potato chips.

Shout out to my Chi town crew: Sang, Pugz, Nita and Parrish (ATB), Shareef, Len Adams, ChicagoRilla, Andrew Barber, Kecia, and new homie Chuck Dissel.

FYI you can order Garrett’s online now, but I still prefer mines FRESH!!!

After I arrived I linked with my homie Dj Phillie Blunt. My first stop was South Street for Ishkabibble’s. Ish is one of the only spots that you can get Chicken Phillies in the city. The old school spots are all beef.

Cheese Fries are the thing in Philly! Hmmm….

Later that night I went to this spot called Letage where Philly Blunt was spinning. The spot is kinda low key, but fly. I liked it.

After Letage I went over to Silk City to meet the homie Tayyib. This was def the Hipster spot. This is what it looked like when the DJ dropped that MIA record! The place was packed and dumb hot. The Hipsters in Philly def party hard!

They’ve been doing this party for 8 years in Philly now. It goes down every last Friday of the month. If your ever in Philly check it out.

Couldn’t leave Philly without getting by Genos / Pats. Genos was in the news Heavy last year for refusing to serve customers who didn’t speak English. Let me say these two things. A. Genos is in a Heavy Latino neighborhood and B. You dont need to speak to English to order food there. They only serve two things: Cheesesteaks and Cheese Fries. You can point and order that. Lol. Anyway… I was telling Parable I’ll always remember Genos from being in the Boyz 2 Men Video “Motown Philly”

Check the Boyz 2 Men “Motown Philly” Video in case you forgot! Classic Material

Now let me say this, Genos be on some other shit. They have a big memorial up that has the police officer that was allegedly murdered by Mumia Abu Jamal, then they have nerve to have this book posted. Booo.. Thats another story that we could talk about days, for those who dont know. Google “Mumia Abu Jamal” and see what you find.

I took it over to Pats which is right across the street and got it in over there. Both of the spots are super Old School and they dont take Credit Cards to this day!

The corner is 9th and Passyunk.

This mural is called “The Sound of Philly.” How come they aint no Black People on the wall. Isn’t Frankie Beverly and Maze from Philly?

While walking down South Street we say this dude on a ladder with a projector, so we stopped to see what he was up too. Turned out it was Philly Graf Legend Pose 2. We chopped up with dude for a min. He was working on a Advertisement for Pabst Blue Ribbon. He was just getting started on the Sketch when we saw him. Would like to be around to see how it turns out.
