Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

Best Mexican in Brooklyn, So Cross that Bridge!

Monday night I recovered from a long weekend of drinking at a fabulous restaurant named Chavella's in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. The restaurant is very tiny - it seats only about 20 people - but everything is freshly prepared and the prices are insanely cheap (I actually felt guilty for at least 10 seconds). Because of the small size you are served promptly AND it's BYOB. What's better?! But if you're not in the drinkin' mood they also have Jarritos, which we all know are delicious. If you don't already live around here, I bet you'll never go, but then you're an idiot. The tamales are great, the tortilla soup is awesomely spicy, and basically everything else I haven't tasted is probably delicious (menu). For five of us to eat (a lot) the bill was $50. (Rumors are the brunch is killer. They deliver.)
I got this image off the blog Brooklyn Skeptic - they also reviewed, and loved, Chavella's
