Parked in front of the B&W TV as a pre-schooler by my mom. He came into and out of my life randomly during his late night show. Always a blast to watch particularly through the marijuana haze of my late teens/early twenties. The strangest mishmash of guests you'll ever see. For all the trite, schmaltzy stuff; he was original as hell. One of a kind. He was never ever rude.

  13. PM replied. Dinner at Joyce in River Edge last night. Not Good. Will post details later. ETA: The much touted Ox Tongue and Tripe dish was an OK mass of protein heavy on the tripe with some, I repeat some, thin slices of tongue.. Chewier than I liked; the dish was fine, not transcendent. The chili oil dressing (its a chilled dish) was a one-dimensional to my taste. As I said OK. It was a very large portion. The larb like chicken and lettuce wrap dish was also fine. The Szechuan Beef dish had more dried chilies than than the dried strips of beef--handfuls of the stuff. Very difficult to eat. My Braised Pork and Cabbage (a hunk of greyish on the inside pork belly and dull brown cabbage) was tender, but this was no doubt due to the number of reheats. Yeah, it had that older three or four times cooked edge to it. It tasted old, not bad, just old. The cabbage was an over-cooked sodden mess. The dish was a complete miss. The place was empty when we left at 7:30. We may be back, Maybe we ordered the wrong stuff. Maybe, but I find it hard to believe that the stuff we ordered was well prepared authentic food.
  14. Craig Levy and I used to work together years ago. If you guys want to get together for a "check it out" dinner I'd be good to go.
