The Magnificent Seven wasn't bad. I'd rate it #3 of the versions, but it was entertaining. Vincent D'Onofrio and Byung-hun Lee were great. Two lines from the 1960 movie:
Vin: Reminds me of that fellow back home that fell off a ten story building.
Chris: What about him?
Vin: Well, as he was falling people on each floor kept hearing him say, "So far, so good." Tch... So far, so good!
Calvera: If God didn't want them sheared, he would not have made them sheep.
The debate will be worth watching. You can say it will be historic, I remember listening to the Kennedy / Nixon debates on the radio.
Don't usually order desserts but the S'mores Chocolate Bread Pudding at Giorgio's of Gramercy is something special.

I was about three blocks away from the explosion last night, I was eating at Madison Square Eats. Heard something, didn't register. Then ambulances , followed by Fire trucks and then NYPD, all speeding down the cross-street where I was, West 25th street. When helicopters were deployed, you knew it it was something out of the ordinary. Thankfully, no deaths.
Night shot of Empire State Building.
Had the Truffleist Cheesesteak at Madison Square Eats last night. Excellent rendition of a classic sandwich.
