The waiting is the hardest part. Thank you all for your luck and good thoughts yesterday. I'll keep you posted. But in the meantime, I'll tell you about the rest of yesterday, as there was some good food involved. Since I happened to be on the East Side, I stopped by Pampano's taqueria on the way back to work. I had read good things about it, and it most definitely lived up to it's reputation. I had one pulled pork and one fish taco, some chips and salsa, and a refreshing melon aqua fresca. I can't wait to go back next time I'm over there!
Last night, I had the pleasure of getting a taste of Tempo in Brooklyn. My two favorites that I tasted were the duck pastilla roll with a tasty Moroccan barbecue glaze and the Time Out NY-award-winning bucatini with Sicilian pistachio pesto. I'm looking forward to going back sometime soon. Finally, I met up with Bill, Sarah, and their friend Mug over at the the Tea Lounge on Union Street to see Charlie Hunter. Randee, who had brought me to check out Tempo, and her husband had stopped home in between to get their dog, Vegas, and when I came outside to meet him, I brought my glass of shiraz along with me, placing it on the bench next to me. That bench was apparently sloped at quite a steep angle for what should have been a flat surface, and down toppled my glass of wine, onto the unsuspecting Vegas. Does red wine stain dogs?
