Monika perched on curb on the streets of the lower east side,
while we queued up to see the premiere of "Captured", a film
by Clayton Patterson. Clayton, who is actually Canadian =),
spent the last 30 years religiously documenting the people and
the vibrant culture of his neighbourhood, the lower east side.
It was amazing, seeing how the LES has changed over the years,
from drug-ridden and dangerous, to the trendy scene that it is
today. It was truly amazing and communal experience.

Janet was visiting from SF, so I wanted to take her somewhere quaint and
delicious. Prune, in the east village was just the place. The space was small
and quaint and the kitchen wide open. People were friendly and the food
and wine was amazing! We shared a great fresh anchovy appertizer and
a whole fish as our main! We drank wonderful white white from Piemonte.
And finished off our feast with a sweet omelette, flamed with Calvados...
so of course we had a glass of Calvados to go along with it!

Monika, Matt and I finally caved after missing SF burritos so much,
and tried Benny's in the neighbourhood. No wonder they get so
much heat, they call themselves "San Francisco MIssion Style", that's
just wrong! Their tacos were decent, and frozen margaritas cheap
and very good, but can't say the same for their burritos.
The search continues...
