Pretzels. I told you so.

I promised hand rolled pretzels without buttery gop would be big again. And i offered some examples later . But now Sigmund Pretzel Shop has arrived at 29 Ave B (east 3rd st) and libidinous pretzelphiles may find their inner peace. But its not just an ego thing ,and its not about me. It is about fresh baked German style doughy salty,poppied,cheesy, pretzels. Sometimes a pretzel is not just a pretzel

Provini....thorough the fog it came

Like Caspar ,the friendly ghost, this lovely ristorante,cafe,wine bar appeared at 1302 8th
ave in the slope(13st). The mussels and gnocchi and pear arugula salad and the spinach ricotta
crepes and the Koerner blanco vino appeared on a corner that had nothing we could remember 3 months ago. The chef from Florenza could be felt but not seen. Nothing scary about it. Just the right mood for a chilly night and a late night repast.

Fried more reason to live in Brooklyn

Aricka had a vision and now she is a star. Myrtle
Ave near Classon for the best Yams and stuffings and pecan turkey and cajun turkey and all that Jive. Tender and Not greasy.

Star Truck and out of my Vulcan mind

Pawtucket Hope Artisan farmers market in Rhode Island has oysters,veggies,fresh ice cream and baked goods,music and crafts. But first you must get past THE TRUCkIES...lined up to get a tubular
turkey or duck or a tin of mac and cheeeeese. The pictures will explain.

Sharz where marathoners go to rest

Like Caroline( and Lane with his Amarone) and Rose who was eating alone but got our ovation and wine. Caroline ran her 10Th but the Eiffel ran his/her first. Charlene served up fine chicken and Borscht and halibut(86st bet york and 1st). But it was the conviviality and the joy at Caroline's achievement that made all shine.
