Advance Recon

Here are the notes:

1. Had lunch at a local Thai restaurant near my office. No idea why I haven't eaten there before. The food was fantastic. The cocktail of choice, however, was sublime. On a whim, and slightly out of character, I ordered a Thai Basil Gimlet.

Now, I am a fan of both basil and Gimlets. The combination of both, punctuated by the sweet spice of the Panang curry was super fantastic. It made my mouth very happy. I must learn the recipe...

2. I made an advance scouting incursion into Casa Diablo, the vegan strip club here in Portland. I had 10 bucks to spend and time for one drink, so it was just a cursory visit.

The location sucks, but the venue is very nice. The sound is good and the double stage is expansive. Being early on a Wednesday evening, the line up was made up of the C-team, or worse. So, I'll reserve judgement on the performers. The bartender was friendly and sassy though, so she gets high marks.

3. Lastly, I am in the process of reevaluating Silverado's place on my favorite-movie list. I am frequently drawn to it, and find myself unable to flip away from it when channel surfing. I feel it may be climbing...

4. That is all for now.

    A disarming lack of pretentiousness.

    Nice way to mix it up.

  7. In London? I'll be lucky to afford a shitty takeaway in West London. The dollar is absolute crap compared to the pound these days.

    While I like the idea of pampering...I think I just need to find something which will keep me safe, relatively dry, and limit my muggability.

  8. And that's on top of the fact that things are pretty expensive in the UK anyway, even with a strong dollar!

    Brian-- no surreptitiously-captured pictures from your recon?

  9. The majority of museums and art galleries are free admission in London if you just want to wander around cheaply. And an all day tube ticket is best for getting around

  10. Sweet. It's too bad that the Victoria and Albert Museum doesn't still have the Vivienne Westwood exhibit.

    Speaking of random exhibits and random museums. Anyone who goes to Amsterdam should check out the Erotic Museum. It's hilarious. And it probably shouldn't be.
