Nick's Crispy Tacos, a favorite of the locals, is a casual Mexican joint that looks pretty dingy. More likely than not, you will have to fight for a table especially on Taco Tuesdays. We started off with the Nachos. The thick crispy greasy nacho chips with the guac and salsa was so addictive. I couldn't stop eating them! When my Carne Asada Taco came, I was happy to dig in. I'm not skilled in the art of eating taco (I'm more of a burrito girl) and accidentally dropped food here and there. My boyfriend helped me order it "Nick's Way," which is $1.00 extra but you get the works (guacamole, salsa fresca) on top of your meat. It's definitely worth the $1.00. It's definitely A-OK! But I don't think it's anything I'd crave to go back to.

As I am writing this, I am shrugging my shoulders. It wasn't awful, but it wasn't something I would go back to. Club Carnival is on the top floor, I know this because I think I climbed 4...5...10....flights of stairs to get there. You enter the lobby when you first get there. Coat check is on one side and revolving doors are on the other. Bathrooms are near the coat check. Fun house mirrors are every where else. Go through the revolving doors where the bouncer is, this is the entrance to club carnival. There will be a big scary clown entrance - that is the entrance to the club. There will be a big bar outside of that and some pool tables tucked away. The pool tables are $4 a game. If you are cheap...I mean smart, you can just catch the balls instead of letting them drop in. You can let the white ball go, because it always comes back out. The club itself has flashing lights, frosted glass, and couches to the side. The music was interesting - we went from 80s to hip hop to music that I have never heard before. Dancing was pretty much at your own risk. The jungle juice tub of alcohol was $85, five friends downed it within minutes. I am not sure because there was not a lot of alcohol or because they were beasts. The carnival games are obviously a rip-off. If you like playing games, then go for it. They had throw the ping pong ball into the fishbowl (good for beer pong champs), shoot water into the clown's mouth/pop the balloon, and a dunk tank. The guy in the dunk tank tried to rile me up by saying that women belonged in the kitchen - they're good, don't fall for it! If you are on the fence about whether are not you want to play, think about this: are you ever going to use that pillow that looks like a dollar bill?
