If we see any reports of someone in the crowd opening a half bottle of Krug to pair with the falafel...

I forgot the link. I plan to go down there for Sunday dinner; saves shopping. I always get Saturday lunch from the soup kitchen at Tompkins Square Park.

Neither Jamie Dimon nor Rupert Murdoch invited the Millionaire's March groups in for lunch, or even to use the facilities in their respective homes yesterday, from what I read. They did cause a lot of traffic disruptions on the east side of Manhattan if those reports are to be believed.

For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones. ”

Calvin Trillin throws a few darts in the direction of Murray's in a recent The New Yorker.  Remembering when it was around the corner, and a cheese shop that was run by people who loved cheese.
