Mother of all burgers

Au Cheval is a diner of some sort is Chicago. Lovely staff. Delicious food. They even have a reel to reel tape player. I was there a couple of days ago and talked myself into eating a burger with thick pork belly on the top, and then a giant mille feuille. If i die young, you know why.

Another great restaurant close to SORAsound headquarters, i.e. our humble adobe. Real Americana food with a twist. Below picture of Peking duck breast.

This restaurant has turned out to be one of my favorite spots lately. I sit at the front counter and order the tasting menu. The pasty chef, Kym DeLost is also really talented. She makes amazing deserts, beautifully presented and not so sweet. Below, antelope.

SORAsound is running some auctions on Audiogon towards funds for the victims of Sandy Hook Elementary School, CT. Half the proceedings from each auction will go towards such fund. If you do not bid, please consider contributing directly to a charity of your choice.

One reputable organization raising funds to help the victims and the community is the Sandy Hook School Support Fund. The fund is organized by the United Way of Western Connecticut in partnership with Newtown Savings Bank, a financial institution with its home in the local community. Except for credit card processing fees, 100% of donations go to the charity. United Way has waived its normal administrative fees.

Our gorgeous boy is 10 years old today.

Yet as we celebrate SORA’s birthday and count our blessings for having him, we mourn the death of 20 young, innocent angels in Newton, Connecticut yesterday.

May peace and sanity be upon us all.

and my love, SORA — thanks for every day of last 10 years.
