THIS: Last night we tried the St. Louis Ribs again, but this time I cooked them at higher temp and for more time in the sous vide. As I had hoped they were even better this time. More experimenting to come for the Franken-Ribs!
THAT: Tonight we have the tech rehearsal for my short play TAKE WING as part of the Players Theatre Short Play Festival next weekend. I sincerely hope you will come to see the play June 14-17 and use the discount code CAST when you book tickets at http://www.shortplaynyc.com.
THE OTHER THING: Also tonight the Tony Awards are broadcast on CBS. If you read this blog regularly you will have seen many Broadway reviews. I see most but not all Broadway shows and here are my guesses for all 26 categories.
