How did I miss this? Apparently, the gang behind Refuel, Campagnolo, and Campagnolo Roma are poised to open a new restaurant (see, this is what I get for eating at home more). Fat Dragon will be a “Chinese BBQ joint” that will be open for business…well, I’m not sure when exactly. But for all the other details, check out the story here: DINER: Campagnolo Crew To Open “The Fat Dragon”, A Chinese BBQ Joint On The DTES : Scout Magazine and here: Straight.com.
Speaking of eating out – I went out for dinner last night with Rob, his wife, Toby, his wife, Ivon (flying solo on this evening), and Akemi. We went to Don Francesco, one of a handful of reliable Italian restaurants that I can always depend on to get their pasta right – aka al dente. After being let down by one of my Italian standby’s a couple of weeks ago, I was looking forward to a good plate of pasta – only to be let down yet again. Akemi’s fettuccine was overcooked and my squash agnolotti so strong of garlic (and you’re talking to an Italian who loves his garlic) that I had to triple brush my teeth and break out the mouthwash as soon as I got home. The spaghetti carbonara was good but, alas, not enough to redeem a disappointing meal.
Not feeling 100% today and yet, despite being a little under the weather, I managed to hit the 80 page mark of my horror script. As I told Ivon, I just need a couple of more scares, maybe another grisly demise, and it’ll be smoooooth sailing. That end of February deadline looking very doable.
A gentle reminder that our Superfilm of the Week discussion group convenes tomorrow when our guest blogger, Cookie Monster, weighs in on this week’s selection: Superman II!
