Sorry for the late post. Didn’t expect to go out last night. Yay for that 5:40 alarm clock.
Also, I know it is early but: chag pesach samech.
Going OTP might become slightly less odious. GA-400 tolls might be abolished by Nov 23.
If like me you delay the act of registering for stuff til the end, today is the last day to register for the Peachtree Road Race. Look for me on July 4, I’ll be the guy running in shorts and a t-shirt. Also, the shirts this year look pretty hot, so you’ll want to get in on that.
Saxby Chambliss could have expressed his views a tad more eloquently. Some of the memes could also benefit from a little more eloquence as well.
Still need to check out Gio’s. The poultry purveyor got three stars in its review from the AJC. Considering how good Antico is, that is a slight disappointment.
On the topic of food… your friend and mine at the AJC, John Kessler, published “The Atlanta 50”, a book about Atlanta’s 50 best restaurants. You should check it out. If you were to ask me (you’re not but this is my thread) Yakitori Jinbei and Daddy D’z are co-winners. While on the topic, and yes I know I’m late, RIP to Hashiguchi Jr.
Side note: if you have any interest in the noble art of bonsai, the Atlanta Bonsai Society is bringing in Kathy Shaner this weekend for a workshop. Discussion as usual on Sunday at 1:oo PM in the classroom underneath the cafe at the Botanical Gardens.
This little school you’ve never heard of in Cambridge, Mass., finally made something out of itself last night. Harvard defeated New Mexico for its first ever NCAA tournament victory. How is your bracket looking?
Richard Engel writes for Vanity Fair about being kidnapped in Syria. TL;DR version: it isn’t fun.
If you’re looking to cook something this weekend, make this. Trust me.
