What Ya Mar Ate PDJ

About all things in and around the Detroit area

Well, it all sounds quite lovely, and glad everybody had a nice holiday.

It was really toned down for us - except for a dinner party at a friend's last Friday.

Probably the single greatest assortment of California cult wines I have ever witnessed.

We had a vertical tasting of Screaming Eagle (93 through 98 -- wow), a vertical of Harlan estate (91 - 97), a vertical of the Marcassin Pinot (95-2000) plus just a ton of great bottles - Kosta Brown, Turley, and Kistlers leading the list.

Besides that single night of absolute indulgence, the rest of my holiday was just spent drinking bud light and pacifico, and preparing for the move this weekend.

Happy new year everybody.

Are you moving the business back to Detroit? I'm pretty sure the old Harlequin space is still available.
Clearly if I had the needs and funding I would surely invest here and become the change Detroit needs.

No. Just to a new house.

However, I think the Harlequin would make a wonderful apothecary. Does anybody want to start an apothecary?

There already is an apothecary in the window of the Rite Aid on Woodward.

He knows. He used to live upstairs from it.

Ran into the beav and ya mar last night. Unfortunately they were not eating so I have nothing to report in this thread.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.

As I read this I can look out my window and see two girls SUPing on the lake. Ya Mar's renewed presence in these parts is reverberating with the masses.

I'm still waiting for him to bring the business back to Detroit.

Dunno what Ya Mar is eating, but at my place the tomato garden is literally on fire and we're eating BLTs like all are going to the electric chair.

Our heirlooms are gorgeous this year; eating tomatoes with basil, fresh mozzerella and balsamic. Yum

There are plenty of good reasons to justify gardening, but for the past few years our primary motivation has not been the produce or to avoid chemicals. Instead it's mostly about keeping the kids busy. Much more difficult to kill one another or to raid my liquor if they're out toiling in the field for an hour or two each day. The tomatoes, peppers, and peas are a bonus.
