I went to dinner at my friend Don’s house Christmas afternoon. Like the good Jew I am, I made fried rice, and I enjoyed Turkey Surprise, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, chocolate cake, cookies, and lemon tarts with friends. Xan and Willow, a local illusionist and witch professor, respectively, showed up and offered a night of interesting conversation. (I would link to their site, but it appears to be down.)
New Orleans really is wonderful.
