Horace Rumpole on So That Happened, a live talk show

I'll be appearing as a guest on So That Happened, a live talk show at ImprovBoston, Thursday, January 28th at 9:30pm. I have 10 free tickets I can offer to MeFites, so if you're a relatively solid yes, please send me (via MeMail or the email in my profile) an email address under which you can be registered for the guest list. I went and saw this show a couple months ago, and it was lots of fun, but it's always nice to have friendly faces in the crowd, so I hope you can join me.

Potluck III: Luck of the Pot

From Wikipedia: To the Irish, a potluck was a meal with no particular menu. Everyone participating brought a dish for all to share. The term comes from a time when groups of Irish women would gather together and cook dinner. They only had one pot so they cooked the meal together with whatever ingredients they happened to have that day.[citation needed] [more inside]

Lamb skewers and dim sum?

Feng Mao Lamb Kebab looks like the type of place that would really be best experienced in a large group. Never been there, but best as I can tell it's a place where you order dim sum to be delivered to the table to eat, while you roast lamb (and other) kebabs over little charcoal troughs. Anyone interested or am I going to have to do this alone? [more inside]
