  1. Sorry for the late reply. My go-to for inexpensive, no-frills takeout sushi in Arlington is Takohachi. It is conveniently located in South Arlington near me, has ample parking, and offers decent nigiri for a buck a piece.
  2. Crust-less leek quiche and roasted carrots. My car is in the shop and there were six things in my fridge. Six-and-a-half if you count a half bottle of Sauvignon Blanc to wash it down.
  3. If you go out for a cocktail between now and October 31, consider one of these restaurants. Kudos to Jill at Tail Up Goat for organizing #dcdrinksforbahamas to raise funds for Bahamas hurricane relief.
  4. I was looking for a Chile con Queso recipe online tonight that doesn't include Velveeta. I stumbled across this article by a Texan about making the dish without processed cheese. In it, the author says the way to avoid the oiliness and clumps usually associated with real-cheese queso is to make a bechamel sauce and then slowly fold in the shredded cheese. I am going to give her recipe a try.
  5. I went to Pioneer Pit Beef a couple of weeks ago. Thank you for the recommendation, Kat. I loved it. The sandwich and fries were delicious. I prefer it to Canopy.
  6. I am with you, Kat. I had a pit beef sandwich and fries from Pioneer on my last visit to Baltimore, and both were fantastic. I liked it better than Canopy. I haven't tried Chap's.
  7. Yes, I enjoyed her interaction with the fans after the match. Impressive young woman, indeed.
  8. Craving fish tacos, but too lazy to drive to Whole Foods, and San Diego is just too far away... A 7pm run to Giant produced some pretty tasty perch fish tacos that satisfied my yearning.
  9. To my dad, who would have been 93 today. He has been gone for just over and a year and a half, and I miss him terribly and think of him often. I was extremely lucky to have been raised by him. He was a St. Louis sports fan all of his life. I hope the Blues pull out a win for him tonight. Love you, Dad. Cheers.
  10. Maplewood Kitchen and Bar did not disappoint! Thank you for the recommendation. The lemon ricotta pancakes, with a side of house-made sausage, were deliciously decadent.
  11. I really enjoyed "Little Big Man." Two of my favorite performances were by Chief Dan George as Old Lodge Skins, and Faye Dunaway as Louise Pendrake (aka Lulu Kane). I love the way the film ended. The director deviated from the book's finale, and the result perfectly suits the movie's tone. Chief Dan George received a well-deserved Academy Award nomination for his work in this film. Dunaway, who impressed me with her dramatic roles in "Bonnie and Clyde," "Chinatown" and "Network," shows off her comedic skills in "Little Big Man" as the sexually frustrated wife of a minister who later turns to prostitution. I certainly see how this film influenced "Forrest Gump," and perhaps "Orlando" as well. This is an entertaining movie that I highly recommend.
  12. It was a lovely room, and oh so close to things. It was fun to stroll around Little Italy, and the Harbor was just a short walk away.
  13. I must be getting old, too. Every song sounded like Alvin and the Chipmunks on speed.
