Heading east to Flushing on the 7 train (which now extends west to the Hudson Yards)(subwaynut.com), we disembarked at Main Street to find ourselves in a cool new world. (macaulay.cuny.edu) In fact, we went into a shopping mall called the New World to find the Grand Restaurant and other shops of distinctionfor a special treat provided by our son, Simon. We entered the Grand, quiet at night for dinner but by day, a vast and busy dim sum palace.We had chicken with friend noodles,marinated duck, some excellent fried vegetable dumplings,
We finished off the meal with an unfamiliar but strangely pleasant sweet soup, .Then we headed off to the Flushing Town Hall, a dignified edifice somewhat at odds with the high jinks going on inside. In fact, we were there, along with lots of others, for some low-budget theater,to hear the MOTH Story Slam, our very first. In particular we went to see our daughter-in-law Trudi
do stand-up storytelling, something I knew she did but never saw before. What a hoot! She was terrific and the audience showed their approval with scores of 8.9 and 9.0. In the end, Trudi triumphantly celebrated her high rankings and we celebrated Trudi.
