Bittersweet feelings with this last of the pencil-focused CW Pencil Enterprise quarterly boxes. I’m sad that this is this fun NYC shop can’t keep going as a specialty pencil store, but I’m glad that they will be able to stay open as a more broadly-focused office supply store.
I haven’t been a long-time subscriber but they seem like real solid folks.
Man, I do like pencils.
A ran a Pepsi Challenge on a couple of Manhattans for our podcast recording last night.

Farewell, Corey Webster jersey. I’ll always remember that you caught Brett Favre‘s last pass as a Packer.
Go Big Blue.

I went with the Club Sub and the Chicken Parm. I didn’t toast the Club, which might have been a mistake. Both subs were plenty big. The fries were fine. I’ll re-run the Club next time but toasted and I’ll see how the Steak and Cheese is.
