Now this is an unusual toilet paper holder. Reminds me of the south if France where they still have skilled metal forgers. Great new discovery for pre-theater. Lots of middle eastern small bites- adored the grilled eggplant with yogurt- and an assortment if main dishes all of which were fresh and tasty. Fun ambience as well.

I like both the art and the use if his old corner cabinet to store extra paper. I also like this young business which uses trees that have fallen or are being cut in urban centers to make benches and tables and chairs and bowls and whatever you might want to have. I first saw the work I these two brothers at the New Britain museum and was delighted to meet the makers and see so many of their creations. Che k them out at www.city-bench.com.

Who would imagine how delicious lunch would be at this restaurant I downtown Ridgefield? Great ahi tuna/avocado/bacon/wasabi mayo on crunchy 7 grain bread.

If you have a busy after school program, you don't have time to change the toilet paper rolls too often is the message I get from this arrangement.

Now this is what I call a fun restroom. Like the curly cue toilet rool holder as well.

Following the thread of extra toilet paper, here is a strange way to solve the problem I think. My second visit to this recently opened vegetarian restaurant. Loved my first meal there. Not so keen about this one. I did run into someone yesterday who was raving about her lunch there recently. Maybe I ordered the wrong dishes this time. I will certainly be back.

Kind of an unusual way to offer extra toilet paper.  Too bad the restroom wasn't cleaner. This still seems to be a popular hang out for students and artists. Happily it was a lovely day and we were able to sit outside and soak up some late summer heat.

I love this!! Never mind that inner courtyard diners just on the other side of the stain glass window could hear every drop if they cared to listen. Note the stacking of the toilet paper and the vase of tight flower buds in the jelly jar. Didn't even care that the sink was so old the stains will never come out. This is my kind of New York find. Looked like a tiny coffee bar from the street, but as one wound down the woodlined walls past the tiny open kitchen, there were four tables inside and a surprise covered inner courtyard with 8 tables. The breakfast was fab as well.

I am becoming a bit obsessed with how extra rolls of toilet paper are stacked. This seems practical, yet elegant given the marble shelf and the Italian tiles. This is my brother's go to restaurant before the theater. Dinner was fine, but the lemon ice, served in a frozen lemon rind, was awesome.

Love going to the Open. This year my friends and I left extra early so we were in the gates and ready to watch tennis at 11am rather than arriving late and needing to eat lunch immediately. Think the restroom could have been tidier considering the hour. Watched lots of great stars crush their first round oponents and went to our usual haunt, Mojitos, for yummy Cuban food, though passed on the pitcher of drinks this year due to the excessive heat. It helped that we hired a driver to make the long journey less tiring. Will never drive ourselves again.
