One of the things I like about being a writer is the ability to be able to give back to my community, the people who greet me each day as I make my way through my harried hurried happy world *if only in my head*. I like that I am welcomed at Tommy's Deli Cafe' for a roast beef with mayo, lettuce and tomato, on rye; Chillemi's Shoe Repair, Audio Visions car stereo systems, Ro Ro Garage, and more. Today, this bright sunny Thursday where ice balls the size of baseballs fell three days ago in an apocalyptic storm, I sit in a nearby local Barnes & Noble doing my writing thing and remembering Tuesday night at The Brazen Fox.
Located at 175 Mamaroneck Avenue in the heart of White Plains, New York--That's 22 miles north from where the World Trade Center used to be--each Tuesday night, TBF offers a lobster special. Fresh lobsters are flown in from Maine especially for this event and for the kingly sum of $24.95, one 1 1/2 pound red guy with banded claws can be had, along with fork tender baked potato and grilled ear of corn on the cob.
This writer has experienced this lobster feast more than once. Each time I return, the taste is more delicious than the time before. Pinky swear. I'm just saying.
If you happen to get to The Brazen Fox, be sure to say hi to Peter, the gracious host who remembers me by first name and welcomes me with open arms and warm handshake.
Oh yes, and one more thing: The Bailey's cheese cake for dessert is to die for.

|Appetizers include coconut shrimp, my favorite; and steamed dumplings. *Sorry, I ate the coconut shrimp before I could snap picture.|
|Dinner is served. Yum!|
|Yes, dinner was so delicious, I went back the next week for my lobster fix.|
|This is a picture of dessert: Bailey's Cheese Cake--Oops, I ate it.|
|Coconut shrimp *what's left for a friend* and fresh made honey mustard*|
