Catchup Week 2008: Ron's Advice

Catchup Week 2008: Ron’s Advice

The week of catching up draws to a close now with Ron. The verysame author of such heavyweight, hard-nosed pieces as Adam Morrison’s Five Stages of Grief, Know Your Local Asian Newswcasters, Losanjealous IS SELLING It on eBay and a giant photograph of Jeff Porcaro…Ron stays out of the way of writing these days but enjoys a splendid view from the sidelines. Let us now catchup…

Years of avoiding the telephone and selectively answering only the most critical of emails have ingrained a sort of spotlight-shy-ness if not downright bashfulness within Ron (site founder, former writer) and so it was by surprise, then, when a recent out-of-the-blue query for a food recommendation while on the road was responded to so quickly and downright authoritatively:

Get the Huevos Yucatecos

At 927am I entered the aforementioned establishment after weaving past some two dozen patrons waiting outside. Miraculously, they had a space at the “community” table. I ordered coffee and the above dish. I was greeted with a hefty dosage of local conversation and the Wall Street Journal from the “community” table. Hyper-realism at play. My breakfast arrives six minutes into my coffeversation. Thank You, Ron, It Was Stellar.
