Take me to Queens at once! I almost can’t get over how awesome this totally real Yelp page for McDowell’s is. Reviews of the “Big Mick” are mostly positive and apparently the restaurant plays “Sexual Chocolate” over the speakers. No mention of free samples of Soul-Glo in the happy meal.

For a little more awesomeness on a wintry outer borough day, watch the original Coming to America trailer. Zamunda!


Thanks to Irina for the Golden Arcs.

Little by little the bird feathers its nest, and object by heart burnished object we surround ourselves with lovely necessities of memory and function. It is these things that make a silly Apartment a Home or a silly Wednesday an Occasion. Whether my nest is an old farmhouse, a sixth floor tenement walk up, or a brownstone basement... whether I share it with family, vagabonds, women of heart and mind, or a little brown cat and a sweet ginger banjo, my principal joy is filling it with light and laughter (and corralling).
