Though I’d call our short takes this week “short ribs”. This county, like Napoleon’s army, lives on its stomach.
Eating Out: we had out of town company and ended up unexpectedly in two Asian places I hadn’t tried. The A&J Ichiban had had some so-so reviews but we found it delightful. I didn’t take notes but the food was fine. Good service, too. Will definitely be back. The other was the Siam Orchid, tucked behind the lock shop at 4th and V Streets. The shrimp curry was so good I took the sauce home in a little box. Again, we will return.
Dumping on Uber- seems to be the new cottage industry. I don’t CARE what happens to their goofy CEO, I don’t CARE what happens to anyone there, I just want to salute their magnificent software that AWAYS WORKS. My friend got a ride to ACV the morning he left, no hassles. Like Obamacare, now that we’re used to it, it won’t go away. Hopefully.
Old Town Sac- There are plans to our a lot of money into ti to make OTS a destination “such as Beale Street or the French Quarter”. Well, Beale Street is nothing special but I’d sure like to see them do something with Old Sac. Some former Disney Imagineers are apparently involved. Read about it HERE.
