beverages and a discovery

beverages: several weeks ago, hh was passing through on his way back to the exotic orient. we managed to get drinks at drink late in the afternoon. a dry pegu club, an excellent daiquiri (with barbancourt rum and a lot of lime), and a nightcap (lillet, gin, and aperol).

a discovery: every banh mi place in boston closes abruptly at 7. deciding to delay gratification, i went in to the grocery store to get some chinese chives at 6.55, paused imprudently for a jar of ovaltine, and emerged to darkness, shutters, and disappointment.
