the leavings of the evening

How is it possible for an 82? 83? year old woman to be so extraordinarily *sexy* on stage? After some discussion we've narrowed it down to this: Appetite.

Wanting it. Doing what you need to do to get it. And yeah: Sharing a slice of that pie with the generousity of the best kind of hostess.

Just wrapped up an evening at the Cafe Carlyle with the Kari & Sarah & the inimitable Elaine Stritch where she delivered her At Liberty show with more intimacy and perfect timing than was nearly bearable.

Laughed. Cried. So good. All of it.

Except, for maybe, the bill.

Just took B over to Kari's to see your bill. It's really weighing on him. and then 10 min later he blurts out "excuse my crassness but those are like stripper's prices" You know, come on in for a decent fee and now just you try to find a cheap beer (or in this case coffee). hahaha!

That cafe looks so sweet from the window. Bet it was a fantastic night.

yeah -- it was a bit rich for my blood. I told K&S if this were Vegas and we were playing slots we'd be rich.

but unfortunately it worked out the other way around. ;)

(but look at all those lucky sevens: even the time stamp is 7.07 PM.)

they get you with a "dinner req'd" clause at the Carlyle and then the entrees start at something $48.

last time I'll be doing that any time soon -- but Stritch really was something else.

yes yes the sevens I thought that was at least a happy little coincidence
