Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!

There were no dignitaries present, but while six of us were dragging equipment up Speedway, another six were dissembling the wine wall so we could pull out the bins today for re-assembly down the street.  Many thanks to those of you who came and stocked your cellars at our wine sale, and to those of […]

late, late

Last night, we finished off our last night at Old Feast, formerly known as Current Feast, with about eight truckloads of equipment hauling.  There were six of us, four trucks and two trips.  Not my ideal evening after a fourteen-hour day, mostly because it brought the total to seventeen, but my bad back gave me […]

whole lot of love, part II

  Oh, Victor.  Feast’s current landlord is a man whom I would not regard as free-spending.  When the roof leaks in the same spot in the kitchen every monsoon season, Victor first tells me that because I bought and replaced the faulty cooler that used to be there, that I need to pay for the […]

grout. and out.

The tile in the restrooms is finally in the home stretch, and if I may say so, it’s quite charming.  A little detail goes a long way.
