Tapas and B-ball

I went out with a friend last night to see the Harlem Globetrotters. We had dinner beforehand at Jaleo, largely because I was pretty sure she wasn’t adventurous enough for some of the other options in that general vicinity. We had a number of tasty dishes, including beet salad, something with quail and lentils, and a rather smoky asparagus dish. Also, a dessert that consisted of a sort of chocolate cake with ice cream that also came with a crispy brittle containing sage. While the food was good, the experience was marred a bit by a large family at a nearby table who let their young children run around the place entirely unsupervised. I have no problem with young children being taken to nice restaurants, but it is the obligation of parents to teach them how to behave appropriately when they’re there.

As for the Globetrotters, their shtick hasn’t really changed much over the years, though the background music has (except for Sweet Georgia Brown, which is eternal). The ball-handling remains showy. All in all, it was a fairly entertaining evening, though not necessarily something I’d need to do again.

By the way, our seats got upgraded for some reason. That put us close to the action, but it didn't give us any more leg room. Still, not too shabby for discount tickets from Goldstar.
