Closed For Business, Baby

Guess what? I'm on vacation! Yes, as of COB today, I am officially, well, closed for business! My lovely wife and I will be headed to NYC for our anniversary! Don't worry - I'm armed with a camera and a laptop so hopefully I'll be posting from the road. I'm prepared on the technology front. Now I guess I need to start thinking about packing.

And Laura, I got the message (having run into significant email problems, she's resorted to commenting) so feel free to comment or whatever (she's in town for a confence) and I'll see you tomorrow (we're meeting for lunch tomorrow) at the time and place of your choosing (we haven't really decided what's going on yet).

If you all know of any great, out of the way places we should check out in Manhattan, let me know! And I realize I've been a little slow on both the picture request and CD distribution fronts. I promise to rectify both of these situations upon my return!

if you're in Brooklyn, go to Narrows' cafe. It's a precious neighborhood eatery, like a small town IHOP, and so good. I have no directions for you but I can get them if you want to go!

I'd say Veselka, because they have the world's greatest Eastern European meatballs, but then I'm like, "Oh. Wait. They don't EAT meatballs." Still, Veselka has some really fun t-shirts, if y'all are into that kind of thing. Oh, and their lentil soup is supposed to be top-notch.

One of my FAVORITE places to go is this little place called The NOHO Star...they make great food for all meals - they even make their own ginger ale. They are at the corner of Bleecker and Lafayette 1 block North of Houston. www.nohostar.com

Happy Anniversary!

Have a fabulous time, eat some pizza for me (I can't get good NY style pizza here! Anywhere!).

Good for you! Good luck! Have a safe trip! Have a great time!
And, ya better post at least once. Is that selfish? Knowing you're on vacation for your anniversary? What are all of us "Cactus" addicts going to do without any posts?! I shudder to think. Pictures are a must. A couple of pics will do for now iff'n you can find the time! LOL
Have a great time, a fabulous time even!

Happy Anniversary to you and Mrs. Cactus! I was a little worried that you might forget the camera and laptop, but now I will be able to sleep peacefully tonight, knowing that you have both in hand! Have Fun!
