2. Surprise package!

We're going into NYC to see a staged reading of Wm. S. Yellow Robe, Jr's new play "Wood Bones," produced by the Eagle Project at Playwright's Horizons. Yellow Robe is an outstanding NA playwright and the mission of the Eagle Project is to gain exposure and provide arts jobs for mixed-blood NAs. This is their first reading. Mine's next month!

I'll have something to eat but I don't know where and I don't know what, but I'll let you know.

6. Oooooh, I am so jealous.

Ate from some food trucks last visit to NYC and loved it.

I also love me some good italian or chinese or thai or so many of the really good ethnic foods I rarely get.

Enjoy the play!

Unrequested suggestion - get tickets to Book of Mormon and plan a trip around that. Best play I have ever seen on Broadway.

7. I agree with your assessment of BOOK OF MORMON.

I've never been at any performance where the whole audience was in stitches the whole time. It's the best musical EVER! We have the soundtrack and I can't help but getting up to dance to "Hass Adiga Ibowai" (phonetic) Best thing, we had orchestra seats in Row E courtesy of the lighting designer (Tony winner!) an old theatre buddy of Mr. Pups from the 70s.

There is no dearth of excellent restaurants in all price categories in the Theatre District. I'm going to have a blast tonight!

8. You are one of the only people I have talked to who saw it.

We are among the very fortunate few!



I was also fortunate to get seats in the front of the balcony... and at prices that went up dramatically after I got my tickets. But not as fortunate as you.

It's going on the road, but the ticket prices are outrageous. Supply and demand being what it is.

Have a great time! Can't wait to hear about what and where you eat!

17. The ticket prices are outrageous.

We still want to see it again. It's not likely that we will with B'way tix @$500/pop, but it is the funniest show out there. I had tix for August: Osage County at a great rate, like $50 on an advance promotion, then the stagehands staged a strike and the cancelled the opening for a month or so and they refunded everyone's money. When the strike settled I called back, but no tix were to be had at all. Luckily, I know the playwright and he replaced the tix (4 of us) for opening night. I held a sit-down Thanksgiving dinner for the cast (24 including spouses & techies) while they were waiting for the show to open, so that's what got us in at the last minute.

The reading of "Wood Bones" last night was wonderful. I met Wm. S. Yellow Robe, Jr., and he signed his book for me when we went out for cocktails afterward. I was touched that the producer also put my name in the program (my play is next up for a staged reading) and introduced me to the audience. I had no idea that would happen! Afterwards, the company went to Zuni for after-show snacks & libations. I had shrimp and chicken satay over an orzo+slaw type of dish with fresh grated coconut and peanut dressing and a Margarita.

18. Big congratulations on your play, yellerpup!

That is so exciting.

Sounds like you had a wonderful evening with a great meal and fascinating company.

I got my Book of Mormon tickets really serendipitously. Right after nailing down the dates we would be there, I went on-line. I apparently did this at the moment that tickets first went on sale and was able to get 4 seats for exactly the night I wanted for less than $100/seat. When I went back to see if I could get a could get a couple more 30 minutes later, they were all gone. And when we went to the theater, the seats we had had doubled in price.

19. A friend wrote from SFO this morning

that BOOK OF MORMON was getting ready to open there and tix were $300 at the box office. Bet they're sold out already.

Thanks for your good wishes, cbayer. I am tremendously excited about my new play, and after last night I know that there is a whole company who is just as excited as I.

9. It's a request everyweek from the Madster

and I know the T-man loves them. I made 3 racks...T-man has devoured one. Madster and I will split one and then I'll have leftovers for T-man's lunch tomorrow.

I used to brine mine for 2 hours but don't even bother anymore. Just use a dry rub (that changes depending on my mood) wrap them in saran and leave them in the refridge for at least 4 hours but best is overnight. When ready to cook wrap in foil and cook on low, low, low for about 2 1/2- 3 hours. I don't make a braising liquid but do use the liquid drippings from the foil. And then remove the foil and any outstanding liquid and cook on a high temp until the desired color to get a bit of crisp on.

The best part is because they cook so long on most of the fat is cooked off. They are tender without being greasy.

The most important and grossest part is to remove of the membrane from the back.

10. My grill has one setting - extremely high.

I have to precook chicken before I put it on the BBQ, so ribs your way would not work at all.

Hope you all enjoy them. I know that you will. My best to the Madster and T-man.

11. You can do them on the grill or in the oven or a mixture of the 2

you could cook them in the oven then switch them over to the grill to crisp them.

4. I've got leftover seasoned ground beef from the tacos and I'm going to make some *slop*.

I love the occasional slop dinner - big bowl of stuff like macaroni, ground beef, cheese and/or sour cream.

I will balance it with a nice salad using the last of my fresh produce.

12. Last I checked, the 7th was Wednesday. Asparagus, feta, and veggie stir fry.

 

My middle daughter is doing all the work. I'm just conducting.

Update: My daughter did a great job. It's really well prepared. Teach them early and often.
