The city of Shinjuku is full and bustling during the day but somehow at night it has this peaceful calm about it. The picture sends a message of loud noises and activity but at this moment not a person can be found so late on a weekday morning.

Where to Eat in New York City? Cafe Habana for Fantastic Cuban Food

Cafe Habana 17 Prince St New York, NY 10012 (212) 625-2002

Cafe Habana 17 Prince St New York, NY 10012 (212) 625-2002

Let me get the few small downsides out of the way so we can relish on how awesome this place is. You are going to wait 30-45 minutes to sit down and eat so be ready. You will also sit at a table that won’t fit your plates. It will feel like your eating with the two couples on either side of you but your not, so don’t try stealing their food for samples.

Order the Grilled Corn Mexican style. I don’t care if you hate corn (like me) you will die for this stuff. I was talked into eating some and didn’t regret one bite I took of this stuff.

For my meal I scored a cuban sandwich that was spot on. New York isn’t a place you expect to taste some delicious Cuban treats but they have it. Some other pluses here are they have the cutest and sweetest servers I have found anywhere in Soho. Along with all this place has to offer it has great value for it’s price. If your in Soho with a craving this place is a MUST stop.

2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS - Oceanside, California

Oceanside is a quaint city with six digit population planted in the northern part of San Diego County. It is home to the longest wooden pier on the west coast. The California Surf Museum is also located in downtown Oceanside if your looking to kill some time while visiting the area. If you happen to be visiting in May Oceanside Harbor Beach hosts the world’s 2nd largest Beach Soccer festival, The Southern California Beach Soccer Championships has become an international event.

Enough about adventures while in Oceanside when we have some American muscle to pedal through the city. While your not going to find an ideal city MPG at 16 miles per gallon. Funny how when driving the car it doesn’t really seem to be a concern as you dominate the local beach scenery. The clutch on the manual transmission isn’t aggressive  enough that you will be annoyed in traffic putting the clutch pedal in and out.

The small narrow streets feel even smaller with the big body presence of the Camaro but we couldn’t find anywhere that the car just didn’t fit. Never did we cause a traffic jam of epic proportions or have locals throwing street vendor food at us for blocking roadways due to the wide stance of the car that make it look oh so good. In fact, most people just wanted to stop and talk to us about the car and how glad they were General Motors brought the classic car back into action.

With the interior the seats sit just a little too low making it inconvenient to rest your arm on the door sill. The gauges are laid out nicely which you can reference when cruising down the road. Seats are very comfortable and the shifter just seems to be placed in the perfect location for hours of going through the gears. Some other gauges sit just in front of the shifter with volts, transmission temp, oil temp, and oil pressure. Lastly the radio functions are fantastic including the iPod hookup which made the drive much more entertaining.

I shot this on Christmas Day overlooking the Highway 101 and Highway 110 interchange. While the highways look pretty busy they were much emptier than normal being Christmas evening. The crazy building sitting here is High School #9 from the Unified Los Angeles school district.

Where to Eat in Atlanta, Georgia? Fat Matt’s Rib Shack

Fat Matt's Rib Shack - 1811 Piedmont Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30324 - (404) 607-1622

Fat Matt's Rib Shack - 1811 Piedmont Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30324 - (404) 607-1622

After having my friend Kelly yelling at me for months upon months I finally decided to visit Fat Matt’s and I didn’t even go with her, haha. The one thing was the line was very long (it was worth the wait) but they seemed to have no system for a long line and I would assume it’s like that quite often. I was wedged in line between the front door/porch door/people trying to leave and kept getting body checked in every direction, haha. As for the food, it was amazing and I cannot wait to go back and try more. It has this very authentic southern BBQ feel, the place is quaint and homely and I loved the outdoor dining area as well.

Parking is not the best right where the area is it but you can make it work it seems, just a little bit of patience. The menu is very simple and straight to the point which I love and is very much how every dining establishment should look to serve you, a blatant quick easy to read menu with a few specialty items. If you don’t like meat then don’t bother coming in here.

So yesterday you saw our route we rolled the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS around Southern California. In case you missed it “2010 Camaro SS – Sunday Drive [PREVIEW]” highlights our route we took in the new modern muscle car. Chevrolet answered everyone’s prayers by bringing back the muscle car so many people grew up to love with the Chevy emblem.

The San Onofre State Beach is a great remote place wedged north of Oceanside and south of San Clemente. It’s full of people in old VW vans and surfers with a romantic date vibe. Sadly for you “free” people of California the nude beach part of the park has been closed down as of mid 2008. So the place has become a little more family safe. If your driving on Highway 5 with your loved on or on vacation this is a great place to stop and really appreciate the California sunset if you have a chance.

Weaving around San Diego and cruising on Highway 5 the 2010 Camaro SS really comes into it’s own. While I don’t picture this thing as a beach cruiser off the bat it really fit into it’s own. While no 50’s style drag race broke out with any greasers and flagger girls in San Diego I really felt the car fit the atmosphere. When we stopped to take these photos I couldn’t tell you how many people stopped to inquire about the car.

A car comfortable enough your grandfather could take it on a road trip without complaining about his back but aggressive enough when you lay in the throttle to make a sub five second o-60mph. Our 6.2-liter LS3 V8 was matted to a 6 speed transmission which makes 422hp. If your looking for a refined muscle car that can handle some traffic but with a blip of the throttle throw your head back into the seat then this is your vehicle. Stay tuned as we keep you updated on our journey with the 2010 Camaro SS!

Where to stay in Louisville, Kentucky? Galt House Hotel & Suites

Louisville, Kentucky Skyline - Galt House Hotel

Louisville, Kentucky Skyline - Galt House Hotel

This place has a great location in the downtown area and some amazingly large suites but the place has some serious problems. First off, the deli has no real candy (I wanted a Snickers at 4am) and the lady looked at me like I was nuts so I ate some homemade cookie. At least let’s carry some normal stuff.

The hotel room is huge in size but mostly for no reason and our room was kind of falling apart. The shower door fell apart and the room has tons of random closets that were super strange. The plumbing was pretty sketch and the whole hotel has a strange old vibe.

The front desk people just seem to be confused by requests or why you would want to talk to them. The night manager told me I had to talk to his boss on what should of been a super simple task. All in all I would come back but I would price shop around the waterfront area first.

2010 Chevrolet Camaro – Sunday Drive [PREVIEW]

2010 Chevrolet Camaro Sunday Drive

2010 Chevrolet Camaro Sunday Drive

Here is a map of how we took out our 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS which was a perfect Sunday drive. We made a few stops that we will review and overall just loved the Chevrolet Camaro SS on this drive. While it didn’t feature the distance our average drive does it didn’t take away from the experience of our adventure. The American Sunday drive is something grandiose and often under appreciated but coming up is a guide on how to take one in an American muscle car.
