  1. Hey, its (still) a food board, right? I'd vote for "To Serve Man" as (potentially?) most topical.
  2. So, it appears that all the threads are now read only except for "WTF" which, apparently, has allowed me to start a new thread 🤯. At any rate, before this too ceases to allow comments, let me use the opportunity to thank Don for creating & maintaining this board over the years and to thank the rest of you for providing some interesting and entertaining commentary. I'll miss this forum, even though I remain active on several others & get some kicks that way. By the way, I think the messenger function is still working as well. And, just in case Don is only carrying out a lengthy April Fool's joke... well, ya got me. 😡
  3. Uh-oh. It seems that I can read everything but can’t post.🤯
  4. The best joke will be on April 16th when we all try to post and cant. 🤯
  5. Well, obviously our plan to be in Montreal for the month of May has been cancelled. To their credit, the folks renting the apartment to us waived their cancellation policy and are allowing airbnb to refund the entire amount. We'll remember that if/when we look to re-schedule. Since we were driving, that was really the only financial outlay, so we're fine on that front. I felt guilty cancelling the restaurant reservations that we already made, as I'm sure they will need the business if/when they re-open. Oh well. We're hoping that we all get through this in good health & think that maybe we'll try again for August. I guess we'll see.
  6. It took me a day to process that DaveO passed away 2 months ago and I didn't realize it. He was the person that I had the most (virtual) interaction with over years on this board and I'll miss him. We went back and forth, both on the board and thru pm'ing. He was supposed to go to a reunion of friends in Brooklyn awhile ago and we discovered that the friend's house was only blocks from where I live so we made tentative plans to go for a drink. Then the reunion got cancelled. And, when I was in D.C. a couple of years ago, we made plans to meet at Dino's Grotto. But he wound up having to go out of town that weekend so, again, we didn't meet in person. We were/are basically the same age, discovered that we had very similar ancestry, knew some of the same people and enjoyed discussions/arguments on sports, current events and anything else we came across. I loved his presence here and looked forward to reading his thoughts and ideas. We will all be the less for his absence.
  7. Had lunch today with a couple of old CH friends, one of whom worked mixing & sound engineering some of his work. His (Tyner, not my friend) style was never easy for me to listen to, but I appreciated it all the same.
  8. Most of the really good by the slice places are in Brooklyn and some are in areas that will take too much time to get to unless you really, really want pizza. And some of the very good Manhattan places, like Keste, are pies only. But I can give names if either of those options appeal to you. Specific to Midtown East -- I got nothin'. On a completely other thread drift note, if you have a hankering for a very unusual sandwich place (with short hours) in the East Village, some friends of mine opened Foxface on E.8th off of 1st Ave. Some of the past special sandwiches have included camel, snapping turtle, elk.... well, you get the idea: https://www.instagram.com/foxface_nyc/. If the owners are there (Sivan or Ori), tell them Steve R. sent you and you'll get the special surcharge added on.
  9. I assume that you want Manhattan and slices (not pies). So, here's one that some trusted friends (& Eater) are recommending on the Lower East Side:
