great post, Meg! So psyched for your trip! Happy new year... :)
what night did you guys go to see Book? We were there on Friday Oct. 11. It was such a trip to see it in Texas!

As William James would have said, truth is what works. As Gramsci would have said, truth is always revolutionary (meaning, in part, that truth is always "turning"). Americans' obsession with "incontrovertible fact" doesn't take into account that truth (as James and Gramsci would have agreed) is always relative. I think that one of the great issues with natural wine is how it translates from the Mediterranean temperament to the Anglo-Saxon (Lettie and Tom both seem to fall in the latter category, no?). Great post, Alice. Thanks for writing it.

if ever there were a "gorgeous" wine, this would be it, right? We drink a lot of this at home and it's our number-one wine for summer entertaining... thanks for taking time out to taste it, Meg. Great post (and great photo).

Alice, we had so much fun while you were here! I'm so glad that we managed to put this together and Texas is STILL talking about (and missing) Alice Feiring. Thanks again for taking time out to visit with us... We'll see you in NYC sooner than later... abbraccio j

we are so psyched for your visit! The whole town is abuzz about and buzzed on Alice Feiring! can't wait...
as much as I want to stop thinking about _natural_ and what it means, I cannot, Alice! There's something so utterly Pasolinian about the boy and his pimples and the chips... I love it and I love what you've done here. I also love that it happened in the Lyon train station (for all the reasons you know and the gig that NN+ played in Lyon a few years ago). But it also made me think of something else: the word _nature_ and _natural_ have slightly and subtly different meanings in Romance languages. Aaaaa... I feel a post coming... Great post...
Next time I'm in La Jolla I'll send you some photos from our beautiful beaches! Great photos... one of my favorite things in the world to do is camminare sulla spiaggia!

did you see that crazy article in the Times about how traders on Wall Street are fixated by curling? a real blood sport, that one...
wow, just seeing this now (as we've been distracted for the last few days with our move). What a great night that was! And that wine... always a treat... The lobster and spaetzle look awesome (and will remember the word to the wise re egg whites!). Thanks for the shout out (looking forward to ya'll coming over to our new place!)... :-)

wow, great bread in Austin? sounds too good to be true. I've so many questions: do they allow byob? do they allow take out of just the bread? Tracie B and I will have to make it up there... Josh Loving hipped me to your blog and I'm glad for it... :-)
