"Free-form" ravioli with beef, goat cheese, and tomatoes. Serve with a "fun salad" - leafy green/nut/fruit (berries preferred). These ravioli are freakishly filling, so have the salad first!

The only "sauce" on top is a little drizzle of red wine vinaigrette, so some people might find them a little dry (I thought they were fine).

Try it with mushrooms next time?

Especially note the scattering of Star Wars/Transformers/etc. toys salvaged during a recent visit to the 'rentals.

Jimmy's birthday, Nizza in the Theater District.

That's the view from my side of the table. If you've got any more, by all means post the links in the comments.

New York Anime Festival 2007, Javits Center.

This being an anime con and all, you know you've got your cosplay...,


booths selling stuff for cosplay...,

more cosplay...,

still more cosplay...,

and even more cosplay!

It's a great con - about the size of the first NYCC, not terribly crowded, some good programs and screenings. I'm more than a little disappointed that the screening of Makoto Shinkai's 5cm Per Second is canceled at the last minute with zero explanation, but such things happen.

See you again next year!
