Here’s the Ecuadorian street vendor at Roosevelt and 80th street, steaming her tamales using corn cobs as the docks. It gave the tamales even more corn flavor - this was the first time I’ve seen this method… got me excited.

Terraza is one of the coolest bars in Queens or anywhere else in NYC. This is last night with the Alex Brown Quartet, playing on the suspended platform above the bar. Just about every night of the week has something awesome going on, from Latin jazz or folk to readings of a sort. You’ll dig.

Buon Natale! This wonderful yuletide window display from Irene Debenedittis and her sisters over at Leo’s Latticini, aka Mama’s of Corona reminds me of how my own mother decked the halls for Christmas. She was a prolific baker, too.Though I must say she never baked bread in the shape of Santa Claus. P.S. if you are looking to bu me a stocking stuffer I would appreciate some fresh mozzarella.
