I've had enough . . .

Published October 19, 2006

Boring background music.

Glad we cut back on the Sinatra, but the basic restaurant playlist is still stale: disco, Simon & Garfunkel, Buffett or poor ol' Pachibel and Vivaldi. Let's hear some imagination. Make me a Pink Martini, Keith Jarrett, Verdi, DeVotchKa or marrabenta from Mozambique. I'll settle for whatever's on the chef's iPod.
