No coffee--had a little, but this whole three-hour time change thing has really thrown me off the coffee, a woman placing an order with Elliott Metal next to me for my background music. Yawn. I need more coffee. Day 3 of ACRE started with a little rush and an order, and has now settled down to a mellow contemplative day. It has been a very good show for me. Only the end of the day will tell if it surpasses the February Buyer's Market Show, but it is closing in.
Last night I had dinner with friends Keith and Mike at Bradley Ogden in Caesar's--what an incredible meal! For sheer guts on the part of the chef (and on our part for ordering and eating it) the appetizer of frog's legs adorned with a stinging nettle espuma had to be the most extreme. I had halibut with meyer lemon gnocci and a citrus vinaigrette, Mike had lobster and potato pirogies, and we all shared a Maytag blue cheese souffle. Dinner was a decadent symphony of chocolate cream puffs rice pudding and sorbet (it was more decadent than it sounds).
It's getting busy, got to run.
