My Happy Place

andrew liefEveryone has that one place. That one special place where they are happy no matter what.  For me, that place happens to be called My Place.

My Place is a resturant where dreams come true.  Where food is just not a part of life, it is life. Where wings aren’t just crispy, but extra crispy.

For almost 30 years, My Place has been “Serving food all the time.” I can only speak for the limited portion of time that I’ve been eating there, but I have never had a negative experience with my food.

There’s nothing better than sitting down with your closest friends and enjoying a meal at the best restaurant in all the land.

My favorite day to go is Monday when they serve $1 burgers at the bar all day.  You might say, “Why do they have $1 burgers on Monday?” To be honest, I have no idea.

I think they do this because they know Mondays are the toughest day of the week for people, so they know by having $1 burgers they can put a smile on the faces of their glorious customers.  I love sitting down and ordering “Not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six” cheeseburgers.

A phenomenon that I became a part of last summer was the “Twin Clam Roll Friday Night Party.” I would get it every Friday night and they were amazing. They were so good that you would think you were eating in New England and not Schodack, N.Y., in the foothills of the Berkshires.

Upon entering, I love checking out the soups sign where they list the soups that are being served on that particular day.  The soups range from the Cheeseburger Chowder to the Italian Wedding.  I’m not a soup connoisseur like my friend Adam Offitzer, so I’m not going to go too in-depth about the soups.

Pretty much all of the people I go with partake in the eating of wraps. The two most popular wraps among my peers are the chicken caesar and buffalo wraps. I don’t eat the wraps because of the healthy items inside of them, but I’ve heard nothing but good things about them.

I can be seen on cold days wearing my fresh My Place & Co. beanie that keeps me warm, while stylish at the same time. Also, during the fall and spring seasons, I can be seen wearing my My Place and Co. zip-up sweatshirt. I’m still praying that one day there will be My Place and Co. sweatpants.  What do you say, My Place? Let’s make it happen!

After reading my thoughts on My Place, if you don’t think it’s a great restaurant than you are dead wrong.  My Place is and will always be my favorite place to eat.  It has such a wide variety of options on the menu that I guarantee anyone will find something that intrigues them and that they will love.

If you’re going to take anything from this column, remember this, friends; there are three guarantees in life: Death, taxes and Andrew Lief liking My Place & Co. Schodack’s Facebook status.
