« Hanukkah for Humanists from your Happy Historian (something to mull on a gray day in the no man's land between xmas and new years.) [Jennifer Michael Hecht] | Main | The Oil Burned for Eight Nights! »

December 28, 2008


How fun! I hope you jumped on for a ride!

Actually we were on our way for "un aperitivo" with friends from New York, so went to the cafe instead, which was just as much fun. But next time!

What's your favorite aperitivo?

Wow, I want a ocean and aqua glowing trolley. Buon anno, Moira.

Buon anno Amy! I liked your poem. And to David: my favorite aperitivo is just a nice, crisp Prosecco. And I've also become fond of what's called a Pirlo in some places, Spritz in others: white wine with a shot of Campari (which I prefer) or Aperol (and some optional soda water). Then there's good old Campari and soda -- so many options, so little time. Cheers!
