This week's rental car

Went to B&H camera store the other day.  Always amusing.  Largest camera store in the US.  Founded in 1973 it is the largest employer in the Hasidic Jew community outside of the Diamond District.  Pretty cool to see the operation.  Did have to wait around for a bit b/c the product lift in the fancy robotic conveyor system stopped working.


Called The Monday Room for dinner reservations last night and was told there is a special event.  Five course wine pairing meal called 'Swine Wine'.  So, we went.  Indeed, every course included pork products.

My favorite wine was the Chenin Blanc Francois Chidaine “Clos Habert”, Demi Sec, 2006.

Bacon Bread Pudding to finish.


I must get out of these wet clothes and into a dry Martini.
