“It’s a big day for teeny boppers and Gen-Xers alike, as today marks the 25th Anniversary of Music Television, or, as we know and love/hate it, MTV. (Wow, we feel old.) But more than a cable channel or a brand, it became a part of music culture and a defining element of the glorious 80s. If you wander down to 44th and Broadway anytime between 2 and 4pm, you’ll be sure to catch a glimpse of the mayhem that is TRL, sure to be bigger than ever on this day of days…
… Why not join in the screaming just this once, for old times sake, or not. One thing is for sure, if you’re in Times Square and in need of an escape, head to the new pub, O’Lunney’s for a tall cold one or saddle up to the bar at Bond 45 for a nice drink among all the neon. If all that screaming is driving you to eat, elite neighborhoodie Anita C says you can’t go wrong with Carmine’s. And if it’s great pizza you’re looking for Ani V shares that eating at John’s Pizzeria, which housed in a former church, makes you feel like you are “dining in a museum!”
