HuH,How'd ya work that - you guys 1%ers?not that there's anything wrong with that
My parents are retired and out west,  they wanted us kids to celebrate on their behalf.  They had my brothers do the same with their respective families. 
My girls love any reason to get dolled up, curl their hair and wear heels.  They still end up ordering buttered noodles and French fries, but they enjoyed the spectacle.  The goblets, all the silverware and the heavy bound menus.

Cincy,

Are you close to Midtown?

This taco place looks interesting.  Maybe you've tried it.

They have wine on the menu

We live in midtown, more on 13th street, but we walk down south fairly often well past 6th.  There are so many restaurants around it's been tough to try them all, and we have our favorites.  This place is pretty good also and they have an indoor/outdoor bar which is nice.  They do a tableside guac there.  We look for places with patios.

There is a new Whole Foods up the street that has a lot of offerings we have yet to explore much.  It's the largest in the SE apparently.  They have some nice beer on tap and the bartenders cannot accept tips, and they have outdoor seating there and on the roof.

And there is a lot more on the way, both openings and new buildings going up.  A new Persian place is due to open up the street in Spring next to a new sushi place

I posted about this in one of the OT Tourney posts, but as those threads quickly get closed after the voting completes, thought I'd mention it again here.

Anyone a fan of Chris Whitley? He is [sadly, he was] a folk/blues guitarist and singer. Really good stuff IMHO. In a thread discussing Stevie Ray Vaughan and Chris Duarte I figured that if people are fans of those guys, they'd probably like Whitley. He's not the same [more folk than the driving guitar of SRV or Duarte], but I'm going to guess if you give him a shot, you'll like it.

yes, I've listened to his music

I enjoy good story tellers and folk music

John Prine and Jaime Brockett are a couple of my favorites

I avidly followed the space program as a kid and then a teen.  I would have been shocked at where we are today with space in 2019, but there is some good news ahead, I hope.  I lean to thinking we should use "robots" to explore and humans only to colonize.  I like the idea of pushing a small asteroid to an L5 point for colonization.

In other breaking news, it's hot down here, like July hot.

The highs this week ranged from 91°-93°, which is lower than the highs in Cincy most of the week (they forecast 96°F two days).

I like the °F scale for weather better than °C.  The simple reason is that most weather we encounter is between 0 and 100°F.  Anyone doing physics calculations needs to use Kelvin anyway.  I do wish we'd go full metric on volumes.  We have Two Liter Coke but 1 gallon milk.  A gallon of milk (or water) weighs 8 pounds.  A liter of Coke weighs 1 kg.  A gallon is a bit heavy for some ladies, so why not sell say 1.5 L of milk and 3 L of milk?

I hate the teaspoon tablespoon thing and fluid ounces and regular ounces.  Come on.  I think we'd adjust if speed limits were 130 kph.

My 2005 car would adjust between mph and kph with the touch of a button and sometimes I'd shift to kph and tell my passenger "We are going a lot faster than it seems looking out" and they glance at the speedo and see 130.

A few years back, Tigerking flew to Cincinnati to go to a Wisconsin football game, true story.  I gather he thought Wisconsin was like a 2 hour drive away.

We got up Friday early and drove to Chicago to pick up L'il Dawg (I'm on FB with her, she's fine, very), and then to Madison.  Fun times.  Anyway, this was the "SEC speed" incident of course, and we didn't get back to the motel until 3 AM and TK had something like a 5 PM flight back, from CINCINNATI.  So, I get maybe 3 hours sleep and jump in the shower and we're off at around 7 AM or so no time to waste.  Badger had enrolled my car license plates in the free toll thing, which didn't work on the Chicago Skyway apparently, they dinged me later.

So, it's Sunday and we're booking, I-65 through Indiana is flat and featureless, I think some university is there somewhere.  I get tired and tell TK to drive, I guess he never looked at the speedo because I had set it to read kph.  I wake up nearly to Cincy and we made it in time for his flight but it was close.  I presume we were showing some SEC speed in the car as well.  I was asleep.  Supposedly that car had a top end of 147 mph which I never approached of course.

But, I digress ...
