These are a few pictures from my séjour in France about a year ago. What can I say, Mecs I miss you much. To all my Mec-a-ronis/Bobby Brown fans, elo! By-the-by, I used the Rex Light typeface/font for these posters. In no way do I pretend to know anything about typography, but I do love the look of these superfine letters. They’re Mec-tas-tic!

 

Pas De Probleme

A few pictures from my outing last week at Flight Restaurant, Wine Bar in downtown Memphis. The concept behind Flight restaurant is inspired by tasting flights, where the taster gets a sampling of various wines to evaluate, examine for the purpose of sampling and comparison. At Flight, this sampling is extended to the appetizers (salad, soup), and entrees (fish, foul, etc.) as well.

What I Ordered (My Favorites in Bold)

The flight of french wines called A SANTE’ ($9.00), which included:

  • RONCIER N/V Pinot Noir-Burgundy, France
  • CHATEAU DAMASE Bordeaux Superior, France
  • FAT BASTARD Syrah, France

The flight of Salad ($9.00), which included:

  • FETA AND WATERMELON SALAD
  • ORANGE AND AVOCADO SALAD
  • BABY SPINACH SALAD

The flight of fresh fish ($29.00), which included:

  • ATLANTIC GROUPER FILLET
  • ATLANTIC HALIBUT FILLET
  • CHILEAN SEABASS FILLET

The food was fresh, delicious, and I will definitely be back for more. Next I’ll try dessert, if I can afford it. Eh.
