Grand-meme! I love it.

Does the status of the restaurants where you ate your favorite foods make you something of a culinary albatross?

I well remember Tripodi's and my favorite food there. I forget the name, but it was a sandwich thick with pastrami and liverwurst, with a slab of cream cheese for good measure.

Heart attack on rye, I think I called it.


You will have to write about Galaxy Quest if you haven't already. Never seen it, never heard of it!

Culinary albatross or just someone with a memory that is too vivid! My favorite dinner at Tripodi's was the meatball bounce, which, if I'm remembering it correctly, was a chunk of French bread, hollowed out with meatballs and sauce inside.

I'll definitely write about Galaxy Quest sometime - it's a fun, adventure movie!
