One of the best aspects of living near Wooster Square is having direct access to Frank Pepe Pizza. The pizza is consistently described as one of the best in the USA, but with this fame comes a rather lengthy line at most times. Today, with the ban on driving due to the blizzard, there was no line! A very quick dinner with a couple of beers was happily enjoyed.
Had Dinner at Traif in Williamsburg, Brooklyn the other night. We tried the 9 course chef’s special. It was very good. I was especially fond of the duck leg confit. The bacon covered hand made doughnuts were also very good.

I am in Japan for the first time in almost 10 years. Many things have changed since the last time I visited this country. For example, I can now use 3G anywhere to upload photos and videos to my blog. As I have this luxury, I decided to upload some photos as my trip goes along.
I woke up this morning to go check out a little market (Katsuura) for some fresh fish and vegetables. After finishing my shopping, I noticed this fishing boat unloading its catch. I thought it was kind of interesting.
This Summer, there was a 16 ounce tumbler available at Starbucks that looked like a to-go cup, but it was reusable. This cup was pretty neat looking, but rather over priced at the time. I wanted one, but didn’t feel like shelling out $15 for a plastic cup with a logo on it. Well, I thought about it the other day, and thought I wanted one again, and maybe Starbucks would be selling old stock at a discount as they tend to do. Much to my surprise, this was not the case at all. In fact, the cup was so popular that it sold out almost immediately, and has been an EXTREMELY hot item on ebay every since. Check this link. I wonder why Starbucks doesn’t just re-release this cup. There is CLEARLY demand for it. They should try to make a buck. I might even buy one this time.
