    According to an article in The New York Times, Montreal Smoked Meat (which is neither pastrami nor corned beef, but something else), and of which I am greatly enamored, is coming to Boerum Hill. Link to NYT story here:

    My most recent trip to Montreal was, among other things, an homage to the stuff. But I stay away from Poutine.

    I think some had a good laugh when I asked about Holiday Carolers. Anyway, I found a group and thought I would pass along the info.

    Mommy Poppins ( please don’t laugh at me )posted:
    The First Presbyterian Church at Henry and Clark will have walking carolers meeting at the church at 6:30pm and leaving to walk through the neighborhood at 7:00pm. I don’t know how long they plan to be out and about but I’m going to take my kids for a walk to see them. We won’t be joining the group since it’s a little late for us. We need to get up early to stand in line at Starbucks and annoy people. LOL!

    Ironically enough, I believe I witnessed this photo being taken as I pulled up to the garage at Columbia Hts Blvd/Old Fulton to have my car inspected thanks to the suggestions of some nice folks on last week’s OTW. By the by, the employees in there were so nice and felt bad that they couldn’t accomodate me so they suggested I go to the Mobil off Flatbush Ave/Myrtle Ave which did the job just fine. Thanks again, everyone.

    Marvo loops has provided what should be David’s logo for Urban Classics. Great picture.

    Finally Finally Finally recovered from Chipotle food poisoning after more than a week. (You’ve been warned.)

  • harumph

    Montezuma – how do you know it was food poisoning and not a stomach bug/flu? Still hopeful as I love Chipotle.

  • tb

    I got sick right after eating there too! Very sick last week, lasted 3 days.

    Got to say – Five Guys is magnificent today!

  • Montezuma

    It was stomach flu, I wrote FP for shorthand, wakened as I am. And it WAS Chipotle: either the pico de gallo, lettuce (but my money is on the) guacamole.

  • Montezuma

    And TB, I think something should be done because I lost a week of my life to extreme pain!

  • tb

    I AGREE!! I think it was the guac. I was in pain too!

  • Height Bee

    Funny you mentioned Chipotle. I have felt ill on several occassions from the place. Especially when I go at off hours. My bet is on the barbacoa….

  • jr

    Just report Chipotle to the DOH they will take care of it. Lets see how Chipotle handles the shutdown.

    Noël Coward’s Brief Encounter at St. Anne’s Warehouse is one of the best plays I’ve ever seen. Run to see it. I believe it’s playing through January 3rd.
