Good cheap eats and free condoms

Yaffa Cafe has been my after clubbing eatery for the last 10 years. It's certainly not fine dining but the food is good and dirt cheap ($6-$10 for an entree.) The gazpacho is awesome, the hummus is great, and their carrot dressing, which comes on every salad is the bomb! I keep telling them they should bottle the stuff. The decor is manic, (leopard and reds and kitschy,) which i love. The crowd is a hodge-podge of artists, club kids, goth chicks, and preppy college kids. Oh yeah, and you get a free condom on the way out.

Some Hints:

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
