I hatched a plan after my doctor described my latest blood test as "boring." I never  wanted  anything  about me to be described as boring. So I drove from the  middle of  Long  Island, epicenter of bland restaurants, to  southern Brooklyn to  pick up the Guidepost Galloping Gourmets. They can root out Spanish food better than a savy pig can find a truffle.

Taberna Griega could be the quintessential Greek village in downtown Madrid, where GUIDEPOST's "Three Musketeers" celebrated Guidepost Publisher Dan Lowell's birthday which was actually in March but due to the pandemic lockdown we could only celebrate it this September. We had spent an afternoon in its lively taberna and lingered over the luscious Meze served with hot Pita bread and sipping high quality Cretian wines. And of course we feasted on the main courses. Ya mas!

The  varied types of places and addresses act as a showcase in addition to being the guardians of the food delights of Madrid, both regional Spanish and foreign cuisines. They beckon to culinary adventurers. And off I went.

With huge loses under the circumstances, owner of Casa Patas Martín Guerrero said: “To reopen [Casa Patas] would be suicidal.  A debacle. To swim against the current only to end up drowning.” He added: “I have no choice but to shut down. How can I pay my twenty-four employees?” In November 2000, The New York Times wrote: “For flamenco aficionados, there’s only one destination. Since opening in 1983, Casa Patas has built a reputation as the best club in Spain to see this ancient, haunting art form.” But on March 13, 2020, Patas had to go. However, it seems all isn’t lost, faint though the glimmer of hope is, when Guerrero appended: “Who knows when this Spanish custom will be able to return once again after the pandemic.”

With museums, galleries and all other forms of live entertainment unavailable, the remarkable SoHo Social Impact and Art to Heart were an act of creativity that brought a breath of (masked) fresh  air.  SoHo once again belonged to the artists, who transformed raw plywood boards into an  astonishing open-air art gallery, healing the psyche of the shattered  neighborhood and lifted the human spirit.

However, those murals, with messages of hope, healing, beauty and Black Lives Matter, have themselves been looted. Transcendent and transient. . .
