Mr R got the kreplach soup.  I had the fried kreplach.  I always feel like a Klingon when I order it.

I think it was Ziggy who took my order (over the phone).  He called me "My Dear".

The coconut macaroons are great, too.  We got some.

The menu also mentions a "henway".  You should ask your waiter for details.

that place looks heavenly

Just too much from which to choose - it all sounds fantastic

the prices are quite a bit steeper than I'm used to, but would still happily pay it

Does the spreadsheet look OK for everyone?  For some reason, now I can only see one pick - my seventh rounder.  :( 

ETA:  And now it's fine.

I've been checking periodically throughout the day and have had no issues.

To whoever picked that Idle Race I never heard of and asked if any of us liked them; an hour ago my answer was an ignorant no. But Pie in the Sky is a great addition to the playlist. They need exploring. All the likes.

What’s with all the new avatars?

Going with the Velvet Underground's conception of beauty for the moment. The bottom of the drawing is an inverted skull, but it doesn't show up here.

Oh ####.  Didn't see that coming. 

It’s so hard but also melodic and weird. 
 
I almost took this song for obvious reasons
Quarantined

the whole album rocks you at a cellular level

I really can't believe this one is still available, as I considered taking it about six rounds ago.

15.35 Regatta de Blanc – The Police (1979)

I was a huge Police fan starting in the mid-80s or so. I haven't listened to them much over the past decade, but this remains my favorite album, or close to tied for it with ____________.

Not a ton to say here, other than I would say the sound of this record was pretty ahead of its time for something that came out in 1979. 

Another album where choosing songs is tough.

Bed's too big without you
Cold wind blows right through that open door
I can't sleep with your memory
Dreaming dreams of what used to be

Songs:

Bring on the Night

The Bed's Too Big Without You

Imagine - Chris Cornell. Didnt follow the scene closely enough, but am starting to wonder if Cornell should have been rescued into a whole different music realm after Soundgarden. It's probably 20/20 hindsight but he shonuff seemed to be reaching for sumn. 8.8

He was legit amazing on his own.  He just had it.  So sad he left us

Of all the tragic and untimely deaths that I have seen in music and entertainment, this one was probably the most personally upsetting to me.

The Hanson Brothers were actually brothers (Carlson Brothers) who played in the WHA for the New England/Hartford Whalers.

And then made a nice living appearing at bars and parties in costume for the next 40 years or so.

Did they fight all the time like on this mess?  Are they still alive?

I don't remember. I don't think so. I don't know if they're still alive. I think they are. The WHA was a competitor to the NHL. It wasn't a minor league. It did well enough that it got 4-6 teams absorbed into the NHL as they'd proved their market worthiness. So it wasn't as podunk as the team on Slap Shot. Slap Shot is considered a classic sports movie. 

"Your wife"

"What?"

"Your wife's a ----!"

"I know. I know!"

One of them (Steve) also played for the Edmonton Oilers when they were in the WHA and was a teammate (and roommate) of Gretzky.
