Long Island - Queens sandwich

Night view from the rooftop parking lot

Sunny. Temperature was over 70°F for most of the day. Went out to Long Island today. These days, it's pretty much a given that most of the new geocaches out on Long Island will be part of the MAM's Micro series. Even so, I took the advantage of the longer daylight and non-rainy weather to go for a few older caches that I'd previously skipped over because I thought they would be trouble. Ironically, all those caches were pretty fast and easy to do, which goes to show that sometimes, you never can tell how hard something is until you actually do it. I suppose that applies to other things in life too but let's not get ahead of ourselves now.

Dinner was at KFC in North Baldwin. This restaurant used to be a co-branded KFC/Long John Silver's restaurant, but I haven't been there in a while and while I was away, they removed the LJS part of it. The place actually looks odd now. The portions of the interior and exterior that used to be decorated in the LJS theme are now blank. Needless to say, I was a bit disappointed, but I ate there anyway because I wasn't picky and it was a chance to use one coupon from the neverending stream of KFC coupons that come in the mail.

After dinner, I was in the mood for one night cache, so I headed over to Long Island City in Queens to find What color is it tonight? That cache was on a rooftop parking lot with a view of the Empire State Building. The ESB was lit green (which is the answer to the question in the cache title) because of Earth Day.
