Passover Fun

Though I'm not into holidays, Monday (last) night, as Passover began, I met with family in the city at one of the most famous Jewish Delis in the world ... Katz's Delicatessen. We shared all kinds of ethnic foods and had lots of laughs. (I never discuss my theories with family - just enjoy the moment.)

    Katz's is the oldest delicatessen in New York City (established 1888). It is also the only place in town that still carves all its pastrami and corned beef by hand - and it makes a huge difference. It doesn't hurt that these products are the best available, as are the frankfurters, knockwurst, knishes and other Jewish deli staples. The ritual of interacting with the countermen is one of the great New York experiences. One table in the middle of the dining room bears an inconspicuous paper sign taped to its surface: "You are sitting at the table where Harry met Sally."
Today there's more fun with family. When I was married to Ralph, he was into the annual Passover Sedar at his brother's house in Great Neck, Long Island. Fun times, great memories as times and consciousness change. If you are celebrating Passover, enjoy. The city is quiet and basically empty, but all that changes tomorrow.
