f*cking Alain Passard. That guy is a genius.
true story: once made pizza for george burns and jimmy stewart.
one of my favorite berkeley stories: back in the day (way back), i had just eaten at spago for the first time and had seen all these stars. I was a friend about it who had been a waiter at chez panisse. I asked him what it was like when someone really huge walked into the restaurant, a george burns or a jimmy stewart, say. he stopped for a moment and then said: I don't remember that ever happening, but I will tell you the entire restaurant almost closed the night klaus...
i love the way the dubs play, too. but i wonder if they have the big guy necessary to win it all. they've certainly been riding a hot streak, but memphis showed some holes. i'm afraid they might turn out to be a phoenix or a sacramento -- really great teams to watch, stacked with talent, but lacking that rim presence that can carry you through to the championship.
