That's what I visited February 14th, 2006, with Surf, the day after seven of us saw Heath, Jake, Michelle, Diana, Gustavo, and Rodrigo at the Aero.

I think many of the things who haven't got a direct BBM connection are Brokie connected: either we've talked about it on the boards, or it's places we've been to with fellow Brokies, or things we've experienced together.


*cheesecake

is such a thing for me. On my last Brokie trip (to NYC) Teresa introduced me to a cheesecake that is to die for.
