... the city and the river as the sun went down. One of my friends, who shall remain nameless (but you know who you are) encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone and try some "traditional cuisine." Well I enjoyed my meal at the time, but during the night I woke up with terrible stomach pain and a bad feeling I was heading down the food poisoning path.

... reach in to choose one I almost feel like I am stealing and doing something wrong! I take a quick glance behind me to get the all clear from some staff. The entire lounge consists of about a dozen high ceiling rooms with Turkish carpets and deep leather seats;and I counted, it is about a maximum of 6 steps to the nearest fully stocked liquor cart. If I thought getting a pop was stealing, well now I feel like I have just robbed a ...
