Best meal I ever ate:
Years ago at the Pump Room. Started with beluga caviar and iced vodka. There was excellent champange with oysters and the rest is a blur. Oh, but baked alaska for desert.
My current drink of choice:
Saturdays and Sundays, brunch, it's bloody mary time. But white russians most of the other times. A nice cold Piesporter w/ fish. A good heady red w/ pasta.
I really wish I could:
fly, have dinner with my dad one more time.
