I know, eating got away from me so far today, too, coela. K8 and the dog have gone to bring something in for us.

Sem, that's great. I have heard of that place before. I made a couple of Brooklyns yesterday and garnished with our Brooklyn backyard black raspberries instead of a Luxardo cherry:

Jerry Orbach was in my neighborhood some years ago, filming and episode of Law & Order. The local HS was letting out about that time and he graciously shook hands and signed autographs with all the kinds who came up to him. Seemed like a genuinely nice guy.

Hands, Manhattan's UWS where I live is always getting inundated with film crews. Can be a bit annoying when us car owners have to vacate the already scarce parking spaces. There was an apartment up my street used a few times in Mr. Robot, as well as the laundromat around the corner.

Would occasionally pass trailers in Midtown while walking from the bus st. to near Radio City Music Hall. But it took nearly all of my ~8 years to finally see a Law & Order shoot in progress. Dennis Farina and Jesse Martin doing a walkalong near the Meatpacking District.

Would also sometimes pass their craft tables but knew instinctively that it wasn't worth trying to yoink a bagel and get trounced by their set heat.

There is a ton of filming in Greenpoint -- lots of soundstages and location-services companies here. I canoe up and down Newtown Creek, and generally I can point at any building and remember which Marvel character was tortured there. The creek and the block east of McGuinness and west of the wastewater treatment plant are still zoned industrial, and soundstages count as such.

Our previous dog was a stone expert at grabbing a bagel from the food-services table of shoots as we would walk by!

I used to call NYC "The Open Set". Fun Fact: I used to have an office on the mostly empty 43rd floor of 1 Penn Plaza - that I never even went to - that was later a major set for the movie "Margin Call".

Seeing Georgie Fame for the first time ever. Grew up with his music, but on sleeveless 7" rekkids and compilations. Surprised! Thanks for reminding me about him, Charlie. Georgie boy is still at it, too.
