Since our previous coffee house seems closed for an indefinite duration, I'm opening a new place where we can hang out, relax, shoot the breeze, eat, drink, listen to some music, talk about the news of the day and anything else on our minds, and just enjoy each other's company and some lively conversation.
Welcome to Firefly's Lounge!
You'll find very comfy arm chairs, sofas, both indoor and outdoor dining areas, an infinite menu of meals and snacks, a complete bar, live music on the patio, and an unhurried atmosphere--drop in and stay as long as you like, we'll be open 'round the clock.
I see you've haven't taken on Wassau, but Philippe, your new chef, looks very competent. The Easter buffet looks wonderful - congratulations. I have a feeling that Firefly's Lounge is going to be a great success.

Of course we have smoked salmon, Advocate! Any type you'd like.
There is nothing that we don't offer--the menu is infinite. Our chefs consider your wish to be their command.
In addition to the dining areas, this new lounge features a reading room, with an infinite library of books, magazines, and daily newspapers, a music room with a limitless variety of music available and headphones for listening, and a downstairs screening room where people can watch any movie they'd like to see. And, of course, there are comfortable conversation areas everywhere, so we can yak to our heart's content.
Right now, I'm in the music room, listening to this, while reading the Sunday paper, enjoying a cup of coffee and a cannoli, and just taking a breather from the hub-bub of our grand opening.

Some nice Spanish guitar music to accompany the Asparagus Revuelto perhaps?
Great idea, vonny! I think we should invite him to perform on the outdoor patio when the weather is warm enough. I'd love to enjoy some paella, while listening to him, on a lovely summer night.
I don't know about a lounge full of wimmins . . . but empanadas, now, that's a sure fire attraction. There's a Chilean restaurant in Kensington Market in Toronto that sells the best empanadas--filled with beef or chicken or veggies (for the vegan fanatics). They're fantastic, and not terribly expensive, either. You get 'em hot and fresh if you show up at the right time of day.
I've never heard of corn pie. I tried to find some info on its origins but didn't come up with much. It seems to be commonly served in the Caribbean, and I also found a recipe for a Pennsylvania Dutch version. Does anyone know any more about it?
