  1. And then medvedev pulled through, in a match that will look easier over time than it actually was. The tennis equivalent of “it’s a line drive in the paper”, if you will. thank heavens.
  2. Because I’m not a fan? Pretty much as simple as that.
  3. This US Open has been interesting on a lot of levels, not least of which is that Djokovic is going to win and there's absolutely nothing anyone can do about it. Really bums me out. Solid showing by Francis and Reilly Opelka though, so some reason to hope for the future. Very distressing that Felix A-A is now coached by Uncle Tony. Not looking forward to seeing his beautiful, nuanced game changed and having to listen to him explain how he added 20 lbs of muscle a year from now...
  4. Last night was hard to watch. I’m hopeful that a break from tennis will allow Osaka to find some peace and happiness - and selfishly, that she comes back to tennis better than ever.
  5. Interesting... https://washingtoncitypaper.com/article/526536/restaurants-say-diners-dropped-reservations-after-indoor-mask-mandate/
  6. To my buddy John, who managed to be both an excellent tennis player, family man, and the best golf agent in the world at the same time. Gone far too soon. And to Big Foe, on his big win. John would have loved it.
  7. No stay, but ate there last week. Really enjoyed the soft shells and the Halibut bouillabaise (we ate off of the bistro menu), but the sleeper dish here is the fried chicken. Really, really good. Given that you are headed out for a big anniversary, I'd recommend the tasting menu. They do a much better job than most about keeping the website menu up to date as well, so that may help inform some of your choices.
  8. Agreed 100%. Bryan Flannery did a couple extended age primals for a wine board I post on a while bag and I think it was a 50/50 love hate ratio. Also had a 200 day plus aged delmonico at Bern’s that I wouldn’t repeat.
  9. Many, many times. They're inter-related and on the way to Millwood where I occasionally play golf (poorly). Great spots, and nice wines. If you find yourself in Berryville, try Nik's broiler room. Fantastic, and reminiscent of Ray's the Steaks crossed with a NJ Italian American restaurant. Though I should note that both are "over the mountain", and not considered part of the Middleburg area (Clarke County is kind of it's own tiny, odd universe). Farmer's Daughter is at the intersection of 50/ 340 in Boyce and is a less polished version of Locke Store as well, if it's on your way from Linden, or if you are heading to (shudder) Winchester.
  10. Ha ha ha - I'll have a drink with you anytime. Heck, I'll even buy 🤣. Not of much help re: Linden dining scene, but Roma in Stephens City punches above it's weight, as does Regions 117.
  11. Upperville is going on this week - happy to meet for a drink if anyone from Dr will be out for the show (well, almost anyone). Some updates just in case: - Common Grounds: Still closing at 2pm, still open at 6am - best coffee shop and gathering place in town. - Upper Crust: Don, back to its former glory. Closing at 4pm, frustrating for Hill parents. - King Street Oyster Bar: BANANAS since Upperville started. Be prepared to wait. - Red Bar: Best restaurant in Middleburg right now (though it's a low bar) Specials are excellent. - Red Fox: Pivoted to a four course tasting menu and "small bites". I get the sense that people may be dissuaded from going for fear of committing to a four course menu - worth noting that the "smal' bites" includes a 1/2 duck, crispy trout, or fried chicken, all of which are entree size. Sneaky good wine list as well,(anyone geeky enough to pour Biggio Hamina by the glass is cool with me) with some aged bottles. - Hunter's Head: Unspeakably bad. New menu change, which the kitchen can't execute. They'll still be packed all week though.
  12. Absolutely not, in my opinion. I've had a couple of longer-aged steaks (200+ days), and found the flavor a bit off putting. Kind of gamey and blue-cheesy, so not my jam. My kids definitely wouldn't be interested - but your palate, and your kids palates may vary.
  13. Behold the Jont of backyard wine tastings to welcome summer - our usual group took it up a notch for this one. The Screagle was an '07, the Monfortino Reserva a 2010. Goodnight all.
