I wanted to share some pictures of signs that I have come across recently. They made me laugh, some for the wrong reasons, and hopefully they will make you smile too. All of them are from Tennessee, but the last one. Enjoy!
I’m still not sure what to say about this next one…
I don’t know what it means to “except” credit cards, but they do it in this place, apparently.

I loved the hotel where we were staying, but they charged for their WiFi and I had an online class presentation to complete. Just one block from the hotel was this place:
It is the Turkish version of Central Perk I think. I felt very “New York” walking down the street, laptop bag in hand, headed to the local cafe like, “No big deal, guys. I do this all the time.” We had breakfast there and the food was really good. I had spinach pie and mom had a bagel and Turkish coffee. Perfect way to start the day. I ended up being there for over 2 hours..
They are right across the street from Central Park, so if you happen to have someone unfortunate enough to be stuck waiting around while you do school work, at least they will have somewhere to go. The place is surprisingly busy! There was a nice mix of tourists chatting excitedly amongst themselves about their plans for the day and locals who came just to hang out and read the paper.
So if you are in need of some WiFi, or just want a good local breakfast with strong coffee, check this place out! Good food and great hospitality.
By perfect I mean, most of us are not Donald Trump, so finding a place that won’t break your bank and where you don’t have to share a bathroom with some smelly college kids is a pretty good challenge. Astor on the Park is just like it sounds, right on Central Park! The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and NO SMELLY COLLEGE KIDS!
The interior was very modern, and seemed like it was recently remodeled.
Like I said, small but very clean. You could get up in the morning and walk right into central park or over to Manhattan Valley and eat at the local Whole Foods Market (My favorite!). There is a Subway line that runs right along the Park, so you’re only about a block from one of the main Subway lines. I would definitely stay there again, but if anyone has any other suggestions, I’d love to hear them!
