Before Nina left town, she decided to stop by with a box of beef empanadas as a going away present. I was susceptible, not having eaten since 7 A.M., and this being nearly 4 in the afternoon, and I am here to tell you that four empanadas later, I’m still here. These were delicious.
Going back nearly 24 hours: I tended bar at our annual fundraiser for Project Hip Hop. I’m on the board, and each year I serve beer and wine and chat and enjoy the pleasant vibes.
Moving forward: Morels, morels, and morels.
And, of course, Roy Haynes in the wings, tomorrow night, still drumming away at 88!
