    The Beatles

    Hellooooo everyone. I have no intention of wading back into this mess after a long absence. Except that Frank Zappa was mentioned. And I just want to add that we all should know quite well that Zappa both heard and thought about the Beatles because "We're Only In It For The Money" is an explicit Beatles tribute and parody on several levels. In its own way it proves the Beatles' cultural influence since a fringe figure like Zappa had to contend with their hegemony and meaning.
  2. I am sad! Why is this "not surprising?" I don't know the reasons.

    I just posted some very similar comments over on the holiday party thread. This was an insane meal and an insane value. Dave is a great chef and a mensch. He is sending out the best food I've ever seen from him RIGHT NOW.
  4. There were eight of us who were there and it was not just an incredible value-- Dave fed us an insane amount of food for about $80 a head (including wine!!)-- it was also the best meal I've had at the restaurant. The highlights were numerous. I think my favorite was the garlic soup with the egg. Or maybe the chicken with the truffles. Or the (smoked?) oysters. Or all of the pastas... the squash agnolotti was Robin's favorite. Actually I think it was the tilefish.......
  5. We'll be there for dinner and maybe come a little earlier.

    Robin and I would be in for January 4.
  7. I wish they carried Rancho Gordo at New York's Fairway markets. This thread reminded me to place an order with Rancho Gordo, to whom I am ever loyal, but the hassle of mail order means I don't buy them as often as I should. I see now having just visited Steve's web site that there are about a dozen NYC purveyors of his beans now but I don't visit these particular shops that often. I will look for them the next time I'm in Union Market. Have any of you tried the Zursun Idaho heirloom beans? I have purchased several varieties and I think they too are quality beans. They needn't compete directly with Rancho Gordo for your affections as they offer some different things. I bought the Zursun chana dal and thought the end product was really good.
  8. Dude I gave up on picking out this sort of thing for Robin years ago, but she asked so I'm trying. If she hates it the return is free.
  9. I went to Zappos, great idea, then found the exact jacket I was looking at for half the price on Amazon, so I think I'm just going to do that.
  10. Thank you Splink. You know I am clueless about this sort of thing. Do you think it is a good choice for my wife whom you met once I think? (Half kidding.)
  11. Is Andrew Marc the same as Marc NY?
  12. You know this was the one I liked, though I thought it was kind of thin and not substantial. It looked good. Linkety But I see a whole bunch more on the website that I did not see at the store. Hmmmmm.
