Thanks for sharing the details of your trip and the photos.  Looks like it was a really nice thing to do.  :-*

I love K and her erudition, but I think every American - at least in our age group - knows that story.

Chrissi, thanks for lightening the pictures!

I'm just seeing this - thank you Meryl and John for making the trip to Broome Street for us.  It is somehow comforting that yesterday was commemorated in numerous ways across the world.  You two are wonderful and I love you back.

Yes, Chrissi, thanks!



Here's the Stracci (rags) with Mushrooms I had (found it on the web)--




I think maybe the upper left dish here contains Meryl's Beef Ravioli




This is what I want to try next!

I haven't found the Crosby Street Hotel Bar Donuts on line; all I can say is--worth the trip!!!


Thank you all for the kind comments--we had a wonderful evening, and we are so glad you enjoyed the posts.

I'll say that again and mean it!  :D  :-*

The story of Kennedy's statement "Ich bin ein Berliner" is detailed here on Wikipedia, including the misconception that he made the mistake of referring to himself as a doughnut.  ;D

As I'm sure you're all aware, my sig line refers to that speech.  Love it!  8)
