  1. Sorry I just saw this. We love Disney+. And if you have Verizon, it's free. Or it was, when it came out.
  2. Sad news. Trickling Springs Creamery, my favorite local ice cream is shutting down. "Trickling Springs Creamery Is Abruptly Closing" by Anna Spiegel on washingtonian.com
  3. TSC management accused of improperly soliciting millions of dollars in investments, and disbursing $1.3 million to four executives while insolvent. https://www.washingtonian.com/2019/09/27/trickling-springs-creamery-abruptly-closes-following-pennsylvania-financial-investigations/
  4. This is a continuation of the List of Restaurant Openings - 2018 thread. Please write me if you know of any others!
  5. I stumbled across a wonderful piece of Arlington County public art today at Oakland Park, near Virginia Square Metro. This is called "Ridge" by the local artist Foon Sham. You can walk through it, and it's impermeable to rain. It's even a Pokegym.
  6. I've always known Washington-Liberty HS, in Arlington County (VA), as "Washington-Lee HS," but I drove by the other day, and saw this sign on the corner. After a quick internet search, I see that the Arlington Public Schools Board voted to rename the school in Jan, 2019, effective as of the 2019-2020 school year. Jan 10, 2019 - "Virginia High School To Be Renamed Washington-Liberty after Lee Controversy" by Gina Cook on nbcwashington.com I suspect that many of our members went here, as it's one of only three public high schools in Arlington County, VA (along with Wakefield
  7. Philly Chef Conference 2019 - the line-up and participants announced today. Tickets go on sale in January 16th at 10 am.
  8. This landed in my inbox this morning, from the Dept. of Useless Information. Drinks International's survey of the world's most admired wine brands. It's a Tour de Force in bullshit, and good reason for consumers to maintain a healthy skepticism of corporate winespeak. Zero info on selection criteria. The global panel of wine experts sounds like an outfit I'd be proud to be kicked out of, if I was a wine expert, that is. Imagine if you are number 15 or 17 on this list. The World’s Most Admired Wine Brands is considered a leading authority on the most influent
  9. Wendy Chioji was a hero of mine. She said "no" when I asked her to homecoming in 1978, because she knew she could do better (she was right, though I do pat myself on the back for having taken a week to work up the courage to ask her). "Wendy Chioji, Legendary Central Florida News Anchor, Has Died" by Dave Plotkin on orlandoweekly.com We'll all miss you, Wendy. 😢 Thank you for all you've done, both to live an inspired life, and to help inspire others. God, this girl was a cancer warrior, like you have no idea. She literally had chemo, then went out and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro f
  10. In a 4-hour, 55-minute thriller of a match in yesterday's Wimbledon Gentleman's Finals, Novak Djokovic barely defeated Roger Federer, the final score being 7-6(5), 1-6, 7-6(4), 4-6, 13-12(3). The match was so close that, at one point, Federer was serving with two match points on his racket, with the score in the fifth set 8-7, 40-15; yet, Djokovic somehow managed to draw even at deuce, and go on to break Federer's serve. The match was so close that Federer actually won more games (36-32) and more points (218-204). Today, Monday, a growing coalition is forming, contending that Fe
  11. A major wildfire in Spain began when a pile of chicken dung spontaneously combusted in the heat. "Self-Combusting Manure at Spanish Chicken Farm Blamed for Devastating Wildfire" on thelocal.es
  12. Per wikipedia. Competition starts tomorrow with Brazil vs. Bolivia. Cheering on my homies Messi (Argentina) and Suarez (Uruguay). Since I don't have ESPN+, I will have to watch in Spanish via Telemundo (Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll).

  14. "Paul H. Hutchins, Jr., Retired Sun Photographer, who Took Iconic Picture at End of 1966 World Series, Dies" by Jacques Kelly on baltimoresun.com
  15. I always look forward to this time of year when the announcements will be made as to who will make the cut for semifinals, and I anticipate who may move onto the next round to be awarded a final nomination to be announce best of in May. Any predictions ?
  16. I'm not one to rush out to be the first in line for things, but I have 4PM tickets today for the opening-day screening of "Us," and after seeing "Get Out," I'm very much looking forward to it.
  17. For Picasso and Dali fans, this looks like a worthy trip up to Baltimore. This appears to be a ticketed exhibit with timed entry, tickets available on the BMA's website. Monsters & Myths: Surrealism and War in the 1930s and 1940s Nearly 90 Surrealist masterworks of the 1930s and 1940s by artists such as Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, and André Masson are presented through a timely lens—that of war, violence, and exile. Despite the political and personal turmoil brought on by the Spanish Civil War and World War II, avant-garde artists in Europe and those who sought
  18. Since most of my air travel is trans-atlantic rather than domestic thought I would start a thread on a little known Icelandic LCC WOW AIR that flies out of BWI. I've used them about 10 times, for no reason other than to save money. First thing to know is they have been in financial difficulty, but are currently being purchased by a private equity outfit that has stakes in several LCC, so hopefully they'll bring some expertise. Round trip they can be $200 to $500 less expensive than the next best. Maybe that's why they are in trouble. They've really tightened up their

  20. The always popular orchid exhibit is back, taking over the Kogod Courtyard (!) Orchids: Amazing Adaptations Escape the winter cold and step into a floral oasis in the Kogod Courtyard with Orchids: Amazing Adaptations. A joint collaboration with SAAM, the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Gardens, and the U.S. Botanic Garden, this installation fills the museums’ courtyard with hundreds of orchids of stunning variety. Did you know that orchids are found on every continent except Antarctica? The gorgeous presentation showcases how orchids have adapted to their many different enviro
  21. Rafael Lozano-Hemmer: Pulse On view November 1, 2018 through April 28, 2019. "In the Hirshhorn’s largest interactive technology exhibition to date, three major installations from Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s Pulse series will come together for the artist’s DC debut.
