There is this little hole in the wall joint on Fifth near the corporately sponsored building where the Pens play. Great jukebox. Real neighborhood vibe. People getting frisked at the door. Y’know. The usual.

In among the weeds on a sidewalk on Smallman in the Strip between 22nd and 23d was this little, struggling tomato plant, delightfully out of place.
Taken at PennMac in the Strip.
Never been to China. Rural, urban – nope. Not even Hong Kong. And when it comes to the language, Wayne Campbell outdoes me. I am clearly not the person to tell anybody what authentic Chinese food is. So grab yourself … Continue reading
