my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

we can quell it by talking about the beatles. as you know, they were never popular in the u.k.

I watched this great show about The Kinks last night, on London Live.

 

Finished by saying that The Kinks were undoubtedly a better band live than the Beatles.  I would believe that, having seen them both.

Back to Macrosan, how many of MFF's class of March 2004 are still active?

Back to Le Bernardin, I have reservations for lunch next month. I also have reservations for lunch (bar tasting menu) at EMP. I am wondering if they are too similar in style? I can still cancel LB if need be, but I really miss fine dining experiences so I wanted to try both.

And if I were to cancel either one, it would be EMP.

EMP is pre-paid so no cancellation, although I can try to transfer the reservation if needed.

I'll keep both. Plus Recolte Dessert Bar. All other meals will have to be reservation free (and cheap).

Wait a sec - your visiting NY next month? Have I missed this news? I think a long overdue MFF meet up is in order.

May 7-11. I was going to see if you wanted to meet up for lunch or coffee near your workplace one day! I'm still making arrangements. Staying at Crowne Plaza for its proximity to the theatre, but I'm not keen on it. May was definitely not the most frugal time to visit (but is there ever a frugal time to visit nyc?)!

Most frugal time of year is probably January/February. For a Winnipegger like you like yourself it would be balmy at that time of year!
