Comment of the Day!


You are reading my mind again GLOB Master!  I just made plans with a friend to go to Liquid Ginger for lunch today.  For anyone that has not enjoyed the pleasure of this Asian teahouse, it is more than worth a visit, especially at lunch.  I prefer LiquidG's lunch prices as opposed to dinner, although their food is very fresh and worth every penny...just sayin'.  LiquidG has some of the best pad thai in town, and its a very warm place to go on a chilly day to enjoy a cup of hot tea!
