  1. I figured out the scenarios for Argentina, Nigeria, and Iceland in Group D based on Argentina's 3-0 loss today and speculating on the result of tomorrow's Iceland-Nigeria match. Lots of them involve tiebreaks. The final Group D matches will be July 26 at 2 p.m., with Argentina vs. Nigeria and Iceland vs. Croatia.
  2. Or if he doesn't get a new job before the start of next season, he could pick up a mid-season job (perhaps early in the season if a team is really doing bad).

  4. If you want some interesting reading, look up Argentinian newspapers right now. I don't know Spanish but could figure out a few unhappy words from the headlines.

    Anthony Bourdain (1956-2018) Dies at Age 61

    My heart hurts for his young daughter.
  6. Fleury was pulled with around 2 minutes left (I believe it was 2:04), and the Caps missed the open goal twice. The fourth goal was scored with 7:37 left.
  7. Mamma Lucia's is getting some media love on NewsChannel8 for Ovechkin's extremely regular order, delivered to him at 10:30 a.m. at Kettler after practice: Chicken Parm, plain spaghetti, 4 sauces (Alfredo, marinara, meat sauce, and Marsala), plus bread. Apparently his favorite sauce is the Marsala because it soaks up the bread. Edit: As for the game, Smith-Pelly's goal is one for the ages. Beautiful.
  8. Yes, the owners of Cosmopolitan Grill in Hybla Valley opened this new venture, Old House Cosmopolitan, earlier this week. While the Hybla Valley location has Bosnian/German food this place is primarily German-focused. https://coveringthecorridor.com/2018/05/cosmopolitan-grill-owners-open-new-restaurant-old-town/ https://www.oldhousecosmopolitan.com/

    The Northern Lights

    Yeah, the Northern Lights are unpredictable. Wherever you go, whether it's Scandinavia, Alaska, or Canada's northern territories, you need to plan for a visit of a least a week. Best show I ever saw was at Lake Louise, Alberta, in May around 20 years ago. I also recall walking back to the dorm from a late class and seeing green in the sky.
  10. Thailand on Royal Street was at 835 N. Royal Street, then moved to 801 N. Fairfax and changed its name to Royal Thai and Sushi Bar. It is permanently closed; I'm not certain when that happened, but the last review on TripAdvisor was in September 2016. Thanida Thai took over the N. Royal space, maybe a year or so ago? Not sure if the owners are new or also owned the other restaurant. Because the word "Royal" wasn't around enough in the neighborhood, there's also The Royal Restaurant at 734 N. St. Asaph, which has a Greek/Italian/diner menu.
  11. The meals tax was previously 4%, so it's a 1% increase. But don't forget the 6% sales tax, so the total tax on meals is now 11%.
  12. That's exactly the reason: The commissary kitchen they had was too small for their needs re: the day care centers and so they moved to a new location that had the space for them to build a larger kitchen. But they didn't need all the square footage for the kitchen itself, so they opened the restaurant in the remaining space. If the reviews are anything to go by, it looks like they're having serious issues balancing out the two operations. When I was reading the article linked in dcs' original post, I thought, "We want to be a candidate for Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives." Every once in a while a diner appears on the show and that has the everything-including-the-kitchen sink menu and most or all of it available all day or even around the clock (including a couple places from around this area). With the daycare hook it would be one of those twists that would likely catch the show producers' attention. Of course, this paragraph is speculation on my part.
  13. I think the premise of the Washingtonian article was, "What is wrong with you that you're going here?"
  14. In the EPL the improbable becomes the result, and one half of a city/county is grateful. Chant from the WBA fans: "Manchester City, We Won it for You." WBA has won 3 of the last 5 at MU.
