Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

All the rain we’re getting around here lately is triggering an appetite for seafood:

Recent dinner at Mermaid Oyster Bar on MacDougal was good. Rainy weather makes me want to eat oysters and fishes.

I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a link between precipitation and fish-cravings; I’ve certainly never experienced it. The weather today is ugly cold and soggy, suggesting nothing more than soup (clam chowder?). It makes some amount of sense, though: All the wet and water-logged surroundings probably should put you in the mood for the cuisine aquatic. In fact, if I’m still hungry enough tonight, I think I’ll pick up on this gastro-meme and cook up the shrimp and scallops in my freezer.

Incidentally, that tweet above is from Teri Tynes, who runs Walking Off the Big Apple, the best Manhattan strolling-guide around. I figure she knows the right walkabout destination for sating a rainy-day fish jones.
