A Brief Encounter with Lindy's Cheese Cake

It was Thursday night out with TDF tickets to "Brief Encounter", one of the most creative plays you can see, especially delightful if you are familiar with the 1945 movie. There are so many fun surprises (the children played by puppets, for instance and the amazing use of multi-media - but I won't give anything more away). It is short play - starting at 7 last night and we were out of there by 8:45 - luckily since we were in nosebleed territory where the seats are too close together for most men to be able to sit without having legs up to your chin - but again luckily my wife came through for the umpteenth time by drawing seats that put me on the aisle. We hit the bathrooms before leaving and on the way down the stairs heard music and singing and were delighted to find the entire cast sitting and standing on the ledge at the back of the orchestra putting on a post-show little review, with audience members who were about to leave joining in. The spirit of the cast that had just put on a performance was wonderful and everyone left with a smile on their faces.

As we headed for the subway, we decided to try a slice of Lindy's "famous cheese cake". The place certainly looked shabby but in the interests of research we needed to do a comparison with Junior's cheese cake. So, almost $30 later - cappucino, milk shake and cheese cake, we discovered this: cheese cake delicious but no better than Junior's, while the size of the slice was almost half as large as Junior's. I was ready to walk on down to Junior's to take another sample and finalize the research but my wife had enough.

"Next time we go to Juniors," my wife said. "Size does matter."
