#1442052 Today I played...

Posted by Wilfrid on Yesterday, 10:22 PM in Music

Is that a review of Ariana Grande?

Reminds me of the NME’s review of Yes by Yes. “No.”



#1442051 Essex Crossing, Essex St. Market, and More

Posted by Wilfrid on Yesterday, 10:20 PM in New York

Oh I didn’t see the upstairs. I am a regular at Formaggio now after the huge falling out with Bedford Cheese on Irving.



#1442030 Overheard in NY

Posted by Wilfrid on Yesterday, 01:56 AM in What's that got to do with anything?

“Can I get the Cezanne?”

I think he means the saison.



#1442028 SOBS

Posted by Wilfrid on Yesterday, 01:38 AM in Bars and beers

Moved recently, no?

ETA: okay... https://www.google.c...62dfa000162c218



#1442026 NBA 2018-2019

Posted by Wilfrid on Yesterday, 12:48 AM in Sports

Looks like KD is out for at least the season.


I’m fine. What are you hearing?



#1442025 Salt Bae

Posted by Wilfrid on Yesterday, 12:46 AM in New York

Looks like Salt Bae on Park Ave South is ready to open. For people who like chefs to touch your food with something other than their hands.



#1442024 SOBS

Posted by Wilfrid on Yesterday, 12:36 AM in Bars and beers

Which led me to look at the Chumley’s menu, not crippling like expensive but amusingly exotic.



#1442023 SOBS

Posted by Wilfrid on Yesterday, 12:30 AM in Bars and beers

Glad the White Horse Tavern, like Minetta’s, survives, but it’s going to be a little different.

Will I live to see McSorley’s serve Wagyu beef plates with crackers?



#1442022 Micromanage My Life

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 11:53 PM in New York

Love ties. Have dozens. Rare occasions to wear them now. If you wear one in a restaurant people think you’re the sommelier.



#1442021 Today I played...

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 11:47 PM in Music

I play Bailey’s Ballads a lot.

Flamin’ Groovies, Live in San Francisco 1973.

Long Bob Weir interview in GQ had me reflecting on different trajectories of Groovies and Dead. Both founded in Bay Area in 1965, both featuring a guitar prodigy, and both at heart bar bands (never stopped playing covers).



#1442020 Chicago 2019

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 11:37 PM in Chicago and the Midwest

Still interested in Acadia, but it’s not open first part of week.



#1442019 Chicago 2019

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 11:36 PM in Chicago and the Midwest

I am going to Blackbird. Think I was last there 20-ish years ago. Current menu looks good.



#1442018 Chicago 2019

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 11:33 PM in Chicago and the Midwest

Sounds like I am not going there either 😊



#1442017 Rocketman

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 11:33 PM in On screen

Or Reg Dwight. Honky cat from Watford.



#1441987 Chicago 2019

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 02:42 AM in Chicago and the Midwest

Oh, is it that you can never get in?



#1441986 Chicago 2019

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 02:40 AM in Chicago and the Midwest

I missed the joke there...

I bet Nathan would have ideas.



#1441983 recent meals in lowertown, saint paul

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 02:36 AM in Chicago and the Midwest

Yeah, but I have all the others too.



#1441982 The Rest of Us

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 02:35 AM in Wines and liquor

Fortunately they are being picked for us.

:chortle:



#1441981 NBA 2018-2019

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 02:22 AM in Sports

KD?

I understand Canada won.



#1441980 Rocketman

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 02:19 AM in On screen

Reg Dwight has a bio pic? Good for him.

I hope and understand that Oscar Hammerstein is prominently featured.

Sorry, Bernie Taupin.



#1441979 Micromanage My Life

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 02:15 AM in New York

I like ties.

(Old school allusion for early eG users there.)



#1441978 Eater Announces Their Restaurant Critics

Posted by Wilfrid on 15 June 2019 - 02:13 AM in New York

I don’t mean to be validating their PR bullshit, but I think what they mean by that is the “non-European food prepared with ‘elevated’ French kitchen techniques and first-rate ingredients” trope rather the “Asian food mashed up with French” trope.


Yes, from the menu that seems evident.



#1441927 recent meals in lowertown, saint paul

Posted by Wilfrid on 13 June 2019 - 10:40 PM in Chicago and the Midwest

Oh I can tell one of my Minnesota stories which makes me look dumb. I am taking a taxi to the airport on a frozen, snowy day, and there’s this big river, and I ask what it is.

“Er, the Mississippi,” sighed the taxi driver.

It just had never occurred to me it really came that far north.



#1441925 recent meals in lowertown, saint paul

Posted by Wilfrid on 13 June 2019 - 10:37 PM in Chicago and the Midwest

I’d be furious.

(Just trolling, man, c’mon...)



#1441924 Chicago 2019

Posted by Wilfrid on 13 June 2019 - 10:36 PM in Chicago and the Midwest

Any intelligence on cocktail bars? Broken Shaker at the Freehand was fine, but despite a discreet location in the hotel was still vulnerable to parties of bros wandering in asking for rounds of beers.
