Item the number one: Yesterday we made stir fry of tempeh, cabbage, onions, and red peppersalthough it’s probably not technically a stir fry because we made it outdoors on the grill (using a “grill wok“). It was laughably easy, and delicious. Fire good.
Item the next one: After spending two weeks dead, my sound card has mysteriously resurrected itself! *cue spooky music* Maybe it was the thunderstorm, although that seems more like a convenient sitcom plot twist than an explanation. Whatever the cause, I’m grateful to have music at my desk again.
Item the other one: I will definitely be going to the free outdoor TMBG show in Baltimore this Saturday. We’ll just see about this new drummer fellow. I hope the weather holds.
Hey, I got the ginger ale today! Thank you so much!
I resisted the urge to pop it open and down it immediately. Instead I came here to ask, in your opinion, how is the flavor of this ale best savored? By itself, or with food? I don’t want to waste it since I only have the one.
Thanks again! And have fun this Saturday. I’ve only been to the Inner Harbor once—is the science center near the aquarium? All I remember is seeing seals (sea lions?) hanging out in a pool and barking. I mean the seals were barking, not me. Anyway, I hope you will tell us all about the show when you get back.
Cool! You are most welcome. I’m glad to get to share this beverage discovery with even my distant friends. I hope you like it.
For optimal enjoyment, I’d say make sure it’s ice cold. Drinking it with food won’t overwhelm the flavor, I don’t think, and it’d probably help curb the spiciness if you find that necessary. I’ve had one with pizza, it was good with that. And I’ve had a few all by themselves, and enjoyed them every bit as much.
I’m not sure where the aquarium is, but it looks like the science center is pretty well situated. I wish I had gear to record the show… maybe I should invest in some. I just have no idea what to get or how long it’d take. But anyway, I’ll try my best to provide a thorough report.
The aquarium is on the inner harbor in downtown Baltimore, a direct diagonal across the tourist-y Chesapeake shore (Harborplace) from the Science Center. Believe me, there are PLENTY of signs to get there . . . I don’t think you’ll have any trouble (though I recommend you take the train to the harbor).
Thank you so very much, though, for the ginger ale! I haven’t had it yet . . . saving it for the perfectly imperfect evening.
You’re welcome! I hope it improves whatever day you choose.
Which train would that be? And do you recommend it mainly to avoid parking?
That would be the Light Rail. Stations are everywhere once you get into the suburbs . . . and yes, to avoid traffic and parking, if you so desire. I won’t be there, but I hope the show is a good time for all.
I won’t be there, but
Well, there’s always Live on Penn coming up in July.
I know, but my ride backed out at the last minute! I missed seeing you . . will you be at Live on Penn?
I’m planning to, though I haven’t scheduled the trip yet.
I would’ve gotten the ginger ale today, but it wouldn’t fit in the mailbox, so I just got a little slip. Maybe tomorrow!
Also, TMBG? New drummer? Wha?!
Yeah, Dan Hickey’s gone, with no official explanation (or even mention) from the band. I postulate that he was needed on his home planet of super-drummer-beings.
The new guy is Marty Beller [sp?], who was with them on their Studio 360 appearance last year, and at the “Other Thing” shows.
