They are at Home depot:


A "heads up" for you all who may be regular Home Depot

Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam
while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned
out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't
happen to you.
Here's how the scam works:

Two seriously good-looking 18 or 19-year-old girls
come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the trunk. They
both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their
breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible
not to look.

When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say
"No" and instead ask you for a ride to another Home Depot. You agree and
they get in the back seat. On the way, they start having sex with each
other. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and
performs oral sex on you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen July 4th, 9th, 10th, twice
on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 28th, three times just yesterday, and very
likely again this upcoming weekend as soon as I can buy some more

Again - beware!!

It's years since the ladies of the night would cluster around midtown hotspots like the Manhattan Ocean Club. Where have they been in the mean-time (and I don't mean Hunts Point)?


Five years ago, when I was living in Hell's Kitchen, I was walking home through midtown around 3AM on a Saturday. A beautiful blonde woman in a white Escalade on huge chrome rims drove up alongside me and asked me what I was up to. I replied, "I'm walking home." She replied, "Want to get a little naughty?" Figuring that I couldn't possibly be that lucky, I asked her if she was a prostitute. She told me she worked for an escort service. I politely declined and she laughed and drove off.

Finally ate there tonite and, of course, I really liked it. I mean... chicken. Choice of chicken. Good chicken. With descriptions from the waiter that allowed us to decide which one would be best suited to our dining preferences. The offal platter was okay. Shoulda been better, since they have all that material to work with. But tasty. The leeks were outstanding. Really glad we ordered it. As there were 4 of us, we had the Rohan duck & a whole chicken. We chose the Plymouth Rock. Both the duck and the chicken were excellent and there were leftovers -- mostly duck wings and carcasses, but Rich makes stock so it worked out. The fries were some of the best I've had, period. The mushrooms ok. The salad nice enough. The au jus very, very good. Desserts are a little strange. The 4 medium sized profiteroles in Ginny's order (way too large, even for $15 - we should've been warned) were 2 ice cream filled and 2 mousse filled. Not my favorite. I ordered one scoop of dark chocolate "sorbet" and it was dense as gelato and as large as 3 scoops other places. Rich ordered one scoop of basil "ice cream" and it was a very basil-y sorbet in a just as large portion. Both were excellent and each was $4.


Overall, a solid choice for when you're jones'ing for quality rotisserie chicken &/or duck, with excellent gravy and fries. Nice.

No one ordered I'le flottante?

Ginny generally likes it but decided on the profiteroles. I'm not a fan, no matter how well its done.


Eater has a good tutorial on how to make LCR Ile flottante. However, it fails to show how to make the perfect sphere, claiming LCR fears copycats, and the sphere is, of course, the crux of their presentation.

Over the years, I've come to realize that (texture-wise) I'm a "dense" guy, not an "airy" guy (go ahead... start the jokes). Shrimp chips have basically been the only exception & I have no idea what those actually are (airy styrofoam?).

We’re regulars there and always make reservations. I just did a test res on OT without following through. I see that the cancelation policy is the final sentence of the info on that follow through page. I’ve never noticed it before. Maybe it’s new? We’re having dinner there on Thursday. I’ll ask about it.
