the week ahead

filled with food and friends and fun-

tonight a Chicago Gourmet event at Chicago q -

our menu for tonight is - now posted above! (revised this entry on Tuesday) my comments are- good food GREAT cheesecake!

here are a few more photos from the evening courtesy of Don Newcomb- ooooh the cheesecake- it was really something special!

Tuesday both Phil and I have lunch engagements - I get Mexican- he is having Vietnamese....

Wednesday a long awaited dinner at Goosefoot (see prior entry from the end of July- actually 7/29/12 to be exact)

Thursday - the theater- and here goes- could be great could be awful-

A Pulitzer Prize-winning script and giant lizards - theatre doesn’t get any better than this.  In Seascape, land meets sea and present meets past, when an older human couple come face to snout with their prehistoric selves. Albee’s linguistic playfulness and willingness to make his characters confront the dangerous unknown create a scenario both deeply thoughtful and absurdly funny.

Charlie and Nancy, a recently retired, happily married couple, are enjoying an afternoon on the beach, disturbed only by the occasional low-flying plane and their own arguments, when suddenly their peace and their ideas are threatened by the appearance of a younger, adventurous couple—who just happen to be of another species as well. This winner of the 1975 Pulitzer Prize displays all of Albee's singular linguistic playfulness as well as his willingness to make his characters bravely confront their own everyday fears and face the dangerous unknown The last time Remy Bumppo tackled Albee, both the production and Annabel Armour earned Jeff Awards. This time the human relationships with animals are strictly platonic—a journey into primordial eons and emotions, where lizard brains and human pains face futures both immediate and infinite.

will be back later in the week with the personal reviews-

Friday Arno's birthday party at Anteprima (ten winos together for the evening!) and Saturday the dinner party here with Neil, Michael & Art, Sheila & Mary and Larno (our name for Laure & Arnaud)

oh and Sunday Phil has another theater event that I opted out of - Woody Sings! at the Northlight (and here I thought he died years ago- LOL)

so while you may not hear from me for a week or so- you know what I will be doing--- stay tuned... same bat time same bat channel....
