Review: Nicola’s Neighborhood Special

One of my colleagues told me several weeks ago about Nicola’s Neighborhood Special.  I sort of blew it off– until I went to Nicola’s and ate at the bar one evening as I helped entertain out-of-town work guests.  We had what is essentially the special– […]

Thoughts about Food: Milk

I sort of hate drinking milk. That’s not true: I despise it. As a kid, I didn’t do milk and cookies. I don’t like the flavor of milk. I don’t like the texture of milk. I’ve been brainwashed into thinking that milk will add extra […]

Tonight’s Bootsy’s special: $100 at the Precinct

This one is a phenomenal deal– basically, it covers two for dinner; the drinks are on you. And, as you know, I voted the Precinct my favorite steakhouse in town. Check it out– summer’s almost over, so I’m guessing the promotion will end soon as […]
