A ‘Riblicious’ Meal at Izzy’s

Please see my new Restaurant Review in The Times of Israel called “A ‘Riblicious’ Meal at Izzy’s.”

Izzy’s Brooklyn Smokehouse Kosher BBQ now has a location in Miami, Florida. My wife, Dossy, loves ribs, so she “made sure” that we got to try this restaurant while on vacation here in Florida. Of course, she ordered her favorite BBQ Back Ribs as their menu says: “finished over our woodshow grill and covered in our BBQ sauce.”

We ordered the ribs for my wife and she was in seventh heaven just waiting for them to come. There was no bread or appetizer put on the table and when the ribs came they were just that, ribs covered in thick brown BBQ sauce with a sprinkling of pickles and purple cabbage on the side and a cup of ketchup. There was no doubt that this meal was all about the ribs and that virtually nothing else mattered. Looking at my wife’s happy face, I can almost forgive them for the various service snafus.

Vibrant Fashion Colors

Wow, what a vibrant fashion display of color at Macy’s!

This is bold. 

This is fun.

This is exciting. 

This is alive. 

We’re coming from the Covid dead back to the pre-pandemic life!  

Take out your stimulus checks and get ready to spend. 

There is still hope for humankind.  😉

Born or Trained In Crazy

This was a funny sign at the store:

You don’t have to be crazy to work here, we’ll train you.

Some places they hire the crazies and other they train them to be crazy. 

Perhaps, it’s a bad culture or some bad applies, but either way they can turn good, caring employees into some more crazies to add to the office’s bunch of bananas. 

Fortunate is s/he who works in a normal, good workplace and can do “a decent day’s work for a decent day’s pay.”  😉
