One Day Only to Enjoy 1913 NYC Prices


…at Grand Central Station. Sorry, folks, if I misled you and you suddenly remembered your grand/parents talk about those (not really?) good ol’ days. The transportation hub is celebrating their 100th birthday on February 1st, and it has a fun-filled day planned with music, award ceremonies, and celebrity appearances. But let’s be real, most of us would probably only go because of this promise of extraordinarily cheap drinks/foods (and maybe to see that LEGO-replica of Grand Central?). Here’s what they’re offering:

  • 19¢ ea. shrimp, 13¢ ea. mussels, 13¢ ea. clams at Pescatore
  • 10¢ for a side of french fries at Tri Tip Grill *From 11am-3pm
  • 5¢ small drip hot coffee at Financier Patisserie *Starting at 12 pm. Limit one per customer
  • 10¢ shoe shine at Leather Spa
  • 10¢ nylon watch straps from Central Watch *Limited to first 500 customers. Limit one per customer
  • 25¢ piece of Legendary Fudge at Li-Lac Chocolates *Limit one per customer
  • 19¢ slice of cheesecake at the Oyster Bar & Restaurant *Dine-in only
  • 10¢ for bambini scoop of gelato or sorbet at Ciao Bella
  • $2 for 100% silk scarves (unisex) at TOTO
  • 6¢ loaf of rye bread at Zaro’s Bakery * Shuttle Passage and Grand Central Market locations only. Limit one per customer
  • 75¢ Adirondack cocktail at Michael Jordan’s The Steak House N.Y.C.
  • 5¢ 1lb box of pasta with purchase of a Ceriello Sauce at Ceriello Fine Foods *until 4pm

First off, I am ready for french fries, cheesecake, and gelato for less than $1. Secondly, Michael Jordan has a steakhouse? Where have I been? Food is, of course, the way to my heart and soul, but truth be told, I could barely contain my excitement when I saw Leather Spa’s shoe shine deal. I am so there. Don’t forget, it’s one day only: February 1st, 2013.

What about you guys? Are you interested and/or planning to visit?
