White (And Slushy) Hell

December 31st, 2010 § 0 comments

The blizzard of 2010 has been disruptive. HG and Beautiful Sharon are in New York hoping we can make make it to storm warning Denver and then to Santa Fe. Iffy. HG and BS consoled themselves last night with some Congee Village eats—joined by son Jeremy, daughter Vicki and chef husband Marc. Clams in black bean sauce. Fried chicken. Pepper and salt squid. Fried shrimp. Hot and sour soup. Greens and garlic. Much Tsing-Tao beer. We were well nourished. The late Nazi film maker Leni Riefenstahl made a film “White Hell of Pitz Palau” (fleeting insider joke reference to it in Tarentino’s ‘Inglorious Basterds'”). White Hell of Manhattan snow has quickly turned to ankle high slush. HG saw a shapely Russian lady leaving HG’s hotel wearing some open toed Manolo Blahnik six-inch stilettos. Good luck to you, Natasha. ┬áStyle demands sacrifice.
