It is on page 46 of this week’s City Paper is a review of our fav slow food restaurant, Thai X-ing. I had been turned off by the lack of speed but Todd Kliman’s review makes me want to go back and try the salmon in red curry for myself. There is no doubt the food there is good, but the wait is almost maddening. Good thing Vigsittaboot, the guy running the joint, has a collection of books in the waiting area. But a couple of times I bought my own reading. I gather the best method is to call ahead with your order.
I was out sick yesterday but had to drag my corpse to the Giant for tissues and juice. On the way there I passed by the 1500 block of 7th and there are signs that Simply Fit is coming to that block. Sometime. The website doesn’t give a lot of info. I guess I could email or call and ask but I’m pleading laziness due to illness.
