A Couple of Tarts

We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink, for dining alone is leading the life of a lion or wolf. ~ Epicurus

Roller Derby!

Last Saturday I watched the Queens of Pain demolish the Manhattan Mayhem in the championship match of Gotham Girls Roller Derby. I just discovered roller derby this summer and have been three times. It's fun and exciting with just enough necessary roughness to make you gasp once in a while. Roller derby is done for the season, but keep up to date on their website to find out when it is on again.

I met the girls at Junior's in Brooklyn for dinner and dessert before the showdown. It was my first time having their famous cheesecake. I am not an aficionado, but I enjoyed the simplicity of the creamy wedge. Instead of the crumb crust, they use what looks like a thin layer of cake. I also loved the ambiance of the restaurant. There were lots of families and teens out for the night. It felt very local. You just knew some of the people there came every week for dinner. And who can beat the neon signs!
