Rode my bike into town to have lunch al fresco with Canton, who designed our ListeningLounge, at the Osteria – a late celebration of finishing the LL. You’d think I had arrived in a Ferrari, because every waiter had to walk to the bicycle and check it out… you know that Italian pose with one hand on the hips, yes? Customers asked what it was called… Silberpfeil, I should have answered…
I noticed that Canton’s plate was riding on a spoon. At first I figured he wasn’t aware of it, but then I asked about it. He likes to tilt his plates with a utensil so that the olive oil or sauce forms a puddle at his end.
Here is a close-up:
After lunch Canton showed me a new cafe that serves Gelati. It is called Ecco. We picked the strawberry-habanero and apple-mint and both were most excellent. The former had a nice kick to it and the latter was refreshing… then I rode home.
