I’m back after a week away, and with no access to the Internet. Don’t say you didn’t miss me. Especially if you didn’t.
We spent a day in Atlantic City, where I haven’t been in about ten years (I grew up going to pre-gambling AC), utterly amazed at what’s going on there. One thing that amazed me more than most things was this write-up of the Budakan restaurant:
“Opium den style” dining nooks!!!
What the hell does that mean? They have lice-infested clothes covering the rude and splinter-filled bunk-stle daybeds? Hack-coughing addicts blowing smoke on your food? the furtive air of illegal narcotics and the vague feeling that you’re about to be raided?
