Of mice and music


Relax, it's not yet another post about the Nutcracker. If this blogs celebrates anything it celebrates chance. And it was by chance that I learnt from the WQXR website that the Arpeggio Food & Wine restaurant at Avery Fisher Hall in New York scored eleven violation points in an inspection by the city’s health department in February and is officially listed as 'not yet graded'. This is an improvement over the previous fifty-nine violations of the concert hall's restaurant. But as the WQXR website explains "the violations are still alarming, particularly since they indicate the presence of mice and roaches". Back in 2005 I essayed a post that connected food and music, here is the link.
