An all- time fave. There is so much story in this music. A little mystery at the end. And played so perfectly. Love!

Debussy: Suite Bergamasque-4. Passepied by Jean-Yves Thibaudet.

LISA loves CURT (and boy is TED jealous)!

Thanks to the generosity of several anonymous donors, I would like to announce 10 free conference pass scholarships for qualified people from the community Currently Under-Represented in Technology (CURT).

This includes women, African Americans, Latinos, people over 60, the physically disabled and their companion, people from remote rural and under-funded urban locations, and others who feel this scholarship applies.

LISA conference details are here: http://softwareandart.com/?page_id=1161

If you know someone who may be interested, please share this with them.  They must have a demonstrated need for a free pass (ie someone for whom artist discounts or student discounts would not be enough assistance). Thanks!

Please send your brief bio to isabel (at) draves (dot) org with an email explaining why you wish to attend LISA to learn if you will be selected.

Decent place to take the kids for lunch on a weekend after a trip to the zoo. Service was excellent, portions huge, small town atmosphere, passable food, and the eclectically tacky decor, while unsophisticated, was much more interesting than a generic restaurant and quaintly enjoyable. This isn't a "fine dining experience" by any stretch (for example, I think the guacamole might have come out of a squeeze pouch) but the food is at the "diner" level and does the job A- OK. Most importantly we felt that our kids were welcome and the timing was impeccable on all fronts. The bar looked great, like I would like to return after dark. Potato chips were a highlight of the lunch!

My food arrived minutes after I ordered it and it was decent. The waitress was nice. The women who eat here are all pretty, and the men look like rock stars (garage bands, not Santana). I'm sure other restaurants spend thousands trying to distress their ceilings; at Brooklyn Label it's authentic. I like the chalkboard behind the bar.

There is a new chef at the Harrison and the food was out of this world. The arctic char was ridiculously delicious, perfectly cooked, melted away in your mouth but with a crispy skin, and a sauce you want to lick off the plate. We eat out in the city all the time and were really impressed. The bread is great, the olive oil was grassy and delish, a little dish of raw yellowtail was mouthwatering. The waiter was the perfect combination of attentive without being even remotely annoying, and put up with special service requests utterly gracefully. My one complaint is that I think the hostess should have worn something a little more expensive. When your front desk is wearing a $12 shift and flats it kind of puts the wrong message out there. The man at the front desk looked great in a suit and tie. I feel bad saying this because she's probably not paid enough to dress well; the restaurant should just buy her a simple black dress.

I was looking forward to eating at bertuccis today because I've always liked it. The rolls were the same: yummy. When my beet and radiccio salad with blue cheese arrived however, I wondered if the black shriveled things on it were roasted olives until I tried one. Yes, that was the beets. Either they used reconstituted dried beets ( this was tough and raisiny) or these beets had been cooked around a week ago and left to shrivel in the fridge - probably the latter. There was nothing plump or juicy, fresh cooked or even canned about these beets. They were just tired. I searched for the blue cheese they promised and only managed to find a one centimeter cube. There were a few candied nuts that were mostly stick in your teeth candy and not much but, but mostly it was just these horrible beets, balsamic dressing and about two cups of chopped radiccio tossed together in a jumble. I tried to make up for the bad lunch by ordering the limoncello cake which was so sweet it sucked all the moisture out of my tongue. Half the sugar, and it would have had some flavor, but this was just ultra sweet. I guess you go here for the pizza, or nothing.

Yes, yes, the chocolate chip cookies are the best in the world. Think of a baseball-sized ladle of dough cooked perfectly so the very middle remains delectably soft. They're large and thick, heavy, like a burger. But really, if you are so mesmerized by the cookies that you miss out on the scones and the blueberry muffins, that is your serious loss. Because you can only eat so many cookies for breakfast before you feel guilty, but nobody would ever fault you for having a scone for breakfast. Seriously - try one soon.
