    Restaurant Wants to Use Marijuana to Ease Lobsters’ Pain. Slow Your Roll, Maine Says. By Mihir Zaveri, September 21, 2018, on nytimes.com.
  3. I have become partial to their goat cheese stuffed lamb meatballs with tomato sauce. The duck spring rolls with peach duck sauce and curry mustard are also tasty and quite a bargain when on the happy hour menu. Sometimes I make a meal around just those two items. A small greek salad with salmon on top I have also found satisfying. This also a reliable venue for friends and family from out of town. There is just enough variety on the menu to satisfy the young folks as well as us geezers folks no longer so young. I would agree it is not necessarily a destination restaurant, but if you live, or find yourself, in Arlington it is definitely worth toddling on over every now and then. They also offer gluten-free pizzas.

    According to Wikipedia, George Soros graduated from the London School of Economics. He probably has more money than Mick.
  7. Former owner Blake Bethem is taking part in a charity bike ride. Fredericksburg chef to take part in 300-mile bike ride to end hunger, by Cathy Jett, The Free Lance Star, September 17, 2018, on fredericksburg.com. The donation deadline is Friday, September 21, 2018, if you are so inclined.
  8. A few weeks ago the bartender at Trummer's on Main overheard our discussion about passing through Fredericksburg and needing a place for lunch. He recommended FoodE. It is located in the National Bank Building at 900 Princess Anne Street, complete with vault and all. We enjoyed a fine lunch at the bar. I have not had an egg salad sandwich in about twenty years, but I really enjoyed their take on it on sun-dried tomato bread. We also enjoyed the chicken hummus plate, which was a little busy in presentation but tasted A-OK. There is a lot going on in the menus, so it probably deserves a return trip the next time we are making our way down south.
