Du-licious dinners and Pleasing Readings

Things just went right at Friday night's "Du-licious" Dinner. Precisely the same number of guests arrived as there were seats to be filled at the table. The wine on the table was exactly sufficient to fill every glass the perfect number of times, with a touch left over for the LTS crew to toast themselves with at the end of the evening. And the amount of food in surplus was just enough to expand LTS Assistant Leia's waistline ever so slightly beyond the capacity of her Levis.

Falafel Chulo chef Dija Amer prepared steaming, succulent kefta kebabs and indulgently comforting veggie fritters - all smothered in a tangy dill tzatziki. Crisp, golden sheets of fried pita with hummus whipped into savory peaks of perfection. Despite an opulent spread (hah!) of no less than four creamy middle-eastern sauces, the tablecloths escaped unscathed.

While Leia recovered sluglike on the chaise in the basement under the pretense of helping the waitstaff, LTS Assistant Scott documented the evening in photographs. That, dear readers, is why in THIS blogpost you can see what stuff is. (See our last post for comparison). The photo above shows Syed addressing the diners. The next photo, however, illustrates the hazards of letting boys use cameras.

Very funny, Scott.

On Saturday, we welcomed Jack Hofsiss and Ethan Silverman, who treated us to a performance and workshop of "Jack from Above", the true story of Jack's journey to China to find a cure for his paralysis. We had a full house again, and we were touched to see that so many members of the audience were moved to tears.

We hope to have lots more readings like this in the future at LTS! It was really cool to have a different form of artistic talent on display, and a different group of enthusiasts taking part.

Is LTS setting its sights on the world of theatre? Stay tuned for our all-singing, all-dancing, upcoming revue, "A Print Hangs in Brooklyn".
