Topics I've Started

Chicago 2019

17 May 2019 - 03:49 PM

I may have up to four dinner opportunities in Chicago in June, although the number will probably dwindle.  I liked The Girl and the Goat last year.  Any suggestions welcome.  Preferably within reach of downtown, although now I've succumbed to Uber/Lyft that's a larger radius than it used to be.

GQ Best New Restaurants

I thought this year's survey by Brett Martin was well-written and entertaining.  You'd have to travel much more than I already do (and I don't want to) to know if the selection is good, but I enjoyed the division of the restaurants into three categories: Refuge, Resistance, and Derangement.



Greece and the Islands

Greece is one European country I've never visited.  If I wanted to visit one or more islands, how would I go about choosing, other than just picking names I recognize?


Does being accessible from Athens narrow it down?

College Cooking Memories

14 April 2019 - 12:52 AM

Prompted by talk of mock turkey on the thread where we are helping Mongo with the elementary principles of duck cookery.

We here have a bunch of different college experiences. Would love to know how people stretched the budget. Did you eat in house? Could you cook back then? Good and bad experiences (how about other students cooking for you?).

My previous memorable Orlando experience was Disney’s Victoria & Albert’s. Looking for non-Disney this time. Should have at least one dinner opportunity, although one night I am apparently seeing Lady Gaga.
