Bodegas will rip you off. This is the home of the $5 dollar bag of chips, and if you act like you don't belong, let's make it $7, "my friend." But the one deal to be found at the bodega is the deli sandwich. These cheap, fresh bites are the one solace that awaits you after moving to the city for the unpaid internship and sublet debt. Usually, if you pay in cash, you won't be charged tax. Now we're talking the Marcy Special, my friend.
