Thank you all!
I have been having a lovely bday, in no small part because I've been hearing from my friends. :bounce: :bounce:
Yes, dear, a mensch is a very good thing to be: it means a genuine person, a straight arrow, a good heart, who never bses other people and always tries to do his/her best by everyone. Kind of like CC, and Panini, and Jim, and Mezz, and chrose, and so many other people here (please don't be hurt if I didn't mention you by name; there are so many). :D Thank you all for your good wishes.
And a happy, HEALTHY New Year to all. :) :bounce:
Actually, we're not going out tonight; we spent the afternoon at Blue Smoke having hamburgers with folks from eGullet
. It was a "meeting" of Burger Club -- we get together every two weeks or so to find the best burgers; the one today was definitely the best so far. And if you happen to check the Metro section of tomorrow's NY Times, you may be able to read about it. :blush: A reporter and photographer were there, to do a story on BC and eGullet. :eek: Don't know who got to the Times, or why they're doing it, but hey, it should be good publicity all around. :cool:
