    RIP at 73. Guitarists in their 70’s are on a really bad streak……
  3. Like above, as soon as we dusted off the first ramekin of butter, my wife said we should ask for more. Within 10 seconds of her saying that to me, the butter was on the table.

  4. Celebrating a big birthday for someone so went to her favorite NYC restaurant (it's my favorite too!) which is Le Bernardin. Just great from beginning to end. There were three of us so we had a combined 12 dishes. One starter and one dessert were "just okay" but the other 10 dishes plus 3 amuses were outstanding.

  11. Too funny! Leftover Marcella beans in pasta fagioli last night for us. 😉 Your soup looks great. And for Sneak's benefit, we added a tablespoon of nduja into our soup.
  12. You are eating much earlier lately. And you can keep cotechino for over a week?
  13. Foo Fighters are coming back in 2023 as they just announced playing at 3 music festivals. Any guesses who their new drummer will be? Or will Dave G play drums and they get a new lead guitar player/vocalist?
  14. Factor in the RT cost of Uber and you could have had the lobster for the whole family in Newark. 🤪
