Brunch Links


It is supposed to be beautiful the rest of this week – sunny and in the 80’s. Another heart-breaker at trivia last night. We were in second place going into final jeopardy and we wagered everything. Question: In Ferris Buehler, a classic of the recently departed director John Hughes, the main character takes part in a Chicago parade celebrating what holiday? We were flirting with “Oktoberfest” until we realized that Ferris was at a Cubs game that very day, and anybody who knows anything about the Cubs knows that they don’t play many games in October. We guessed Casmir Pulaski Day. Predictably, another group guessed “Polish Day.” Everybody was wrong – it was Von Steuban Day. Today’s brunch comes courtesy of the Marigold Kitchen, a well-reputed restaurant by the Capitol.

Yeah, I hope he sued. “In May, Madison police used pepper spray and a Taser on Bottila after he refused to leave a McDonald’s restaurant where a manager wanted him to leave because of his dog.”
