Kris, wake up.
We’d like to invite you to become one of our Authors in Alexandria. This invitation has been extended to you by email as well.
In addition to posting on anything you wish, as you desire, you may of course mirror posts you’ve already written from here or elsewhere to gain a different or additional audience or for any other reason that appeals to you.
If you think you might be interested, contact me through Alexandria or by return email via this comment and I’ll forward our formal invitations for you to look over and return if you decide to proceed.
Come contribute your perspectives and opinions to the ongoing conversations there or, even better, start some new – and different – ones of your own.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Is it the Italians or the Indians who get their v’s and w’s mixed up? I don’t remember anymore. I do remember Vino Vino for its lofty Tribeca setting, narrow yet great selection of wines and cheeses, and friendly service.Vino Vino combines a wine store with an enoteca/lounge, the two separated only by large panels of glass. While consultants and bankers might mumble mystic formulas of one plus one greater than two, synergies, cross-selling and one-stop shopping, I would caution Vino Vino with what restaurants in street corners of Bombay have always known — one rarely if ever eats where one shops.The narrow lounge is stylish, quiet and conducive to conversation. The bar menu showcases a selection of cheeses–manchego, beemster, epoisses, tete de moine (from Iowa, j/k), camembert to name a few that make up the majority. The pairings and small dishes are a distraction if you come for pre-dinner drinks, unnecessary if you come for post-dinner drinks, and don’t quite satisfy if you expect to have dinner here.Interior design aficionados might suggest having bettter connectivity between the lounge and the store, or having ceiling-high shelves. But I think Vino Vino has got it right given its Tribeca context. ‘In vino veritas’ reminds a wall hanging in the store. May the cheeses at Vino Vino rescue you from falling for the excessive truth-telling effects of wine consumption.
