One of my favorite Pop-Ups : Madison Square Eats is now running from September 27th through October 25th. Lots of BBQ available.

Hofbräu München Oktoberfestbier and Shiner Oktoberfest on tap allowed me to continue my Oktoberfest taste test. Both very tasty.

There was a concert in the park nearby that was excellent, Cajun Blues by Brother Sun.

Fatty Cue stand at the concert. They had Brooklyn Beer Oktoberfest on tap but I'll wait for next week.

The Greenmarket starts to have some beautiful displays at this time of year.

I paid $20 more for the print version because I prefer that to the cheaper ( by far) E-Version.

Peaches in the sun.

Red Plums in the sun.

Watched HBO's Clear History with Larry David, funny running joke about the band Chicago. Nice job by Michael Keaton and some decent social commentary too.

I have actually been working too hard, even bringing work home. The hard work has paid dividends but it is for personal satisfaction. Whether I did it well or not would have been ignored or missed. Still, the results so far are great.

My old favorite Lao Bei Fang Dumpling House has moved to 83-05 Broadway,Elmhurst , NY.

Beer for the weekend is Corona, $12.99 a Twelve Pack.

Brain Pickings had an interesting piece on Philip K. Dick this morning.

Went to Tanger Riverhead with the boys and Grandkids, keeping up a Labor Day weekend tradition. Bought wine, shirts and a tie. The kids killed Polo and True Religion.

Empire State Cellars specializes in New York Wine and Beer.
