A Messianic Meal

In our never-ending search for the perfect shwarma, My Most Favorite Lunch Companion and I visited a restaurant called Kasbah on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

AIRPORT BLUES

We used to think that travel was exciting. We were wrong! Airplane seats are made for Protestant back sides and not Mediterranean tushes. Leg room is non existent. The air in the plane is stale.

DOWNTOWN AUSTIN AT ESTHER’S FOLLIES

Austin is a university town. As such, it was the only blue county (Travis County) in the state. President “W” lost in that county, unique in all of Texas. Why is this important? Because of the show that goes on at Esther’s Follies in downtown Austin. The place is a dive! Inside the main room, […]
