  1. This is where I started my morning. 7 am hockey game at West Point. (which means leaving Manhattan at 5:30 am)
  2. I deliberately chose the model we purchased because of the extra rack. And the ability to adjust the middle rack for glassware is a great feature - we had it on our Miele.
  3. This is as good a place as any to mention that my son is obsessed with Roz Chast and is currently in the midst of reading her book Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant? which deals with the deaths of both of her parents. He is such a stereotypical Upper West Sider!!!
  4. I agree completely. It was such a great space. I was at the Algonquin recently and got so depressed.
  5. We bought a Bosch as well. Our first dishwasher was a Bosch - it lasted 17 years and I loved it. The one we're replacing is a Miele that only lasted 10 years.
  6. We finally ordered a new dishwasher to replace the one that died several months ago.
  7. Knowing how much @Sneakeater adores Suze, I feel a need to report that Astor will be hosting a tasting tomorrow from 3 - 6 pm and bottles will be 15% off.
  8. The Arbeg distillery is owned by Glenmorangie and they share a master distiller. LVMH owns them both.
  9. I started celebrating Burns night early. On Tuesday night (since it was already his birthday in Scotland) I pulled out one of my favorites - Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban. And then last night had some Lagavulin 10. The later was smokier than I remembered.
  10. Gotham Wines had it earlier in the week. (Broadway and 94th)
  11. They're charging $20 for Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban. Makes me think I should savor it even more when I drink it at home.
  12. Earlier today I was introduced to the woman who writes the Crime column for the NYT Book Review. I commented that last night I finished a book that I learned about from her column - A Death in Tokyo. She didn't remember reviewing it. Because she didn't. I read about the book in the Wall Street Journal. Oops.
  13. The things we do for our kids. (I can’t believe that I wake up at 5 am on Sunday mornings to drive to games)
  14. I know you're all going to be jealous when I tell you I went to Harrisburg this past weekend. It was for a hockey tournament.
