Nancree, Thank you for the good news. Now I do not have to be envious
of others any more.

Could you, please, also send us a Penzey's? )

There used to be a wonderful herbalist shop in the East Village where you
could buy just about any herb or spice imaginable. I suspect they might
even have had "eye of newt". <g> Alas, I can't remember the exact location
and it was a long time ago. I do remember it was near Kiehl's Pharmacy
that carried just about every essential oil under the sun.

Sounds like a store I hit the last time I was in NYC. I tried to describe
where it was and I realized I couldn't. I stared at a map forever trying to
put it near the place where we had lunch that day and it didn't work. I don't
think I'll be able to find it again.

Nancree is sending me a Trader Joe's market, later in Spring. On 14th
Street, right near where Mimi lives.

She is next going to to start working on getting me a Penzey's. I do
not need anything special from them, I just would like to have one of
their stores in Manhattan, so that I can stop feeling underprivileged.

Oh, please! "Yes, you can buy them there but not as cheaply as here."
So, feel underprivileged for a couple months. "-)

Hmm. This sounds like a place in the *West* Village, on Bleecker,
called something like Aphrodisia or Aromatherapie or something. Run by
a middle-aged woman with lots of cats. In the neighborhood of
Faicco's and Murray's Cheese Shop. She's second only to Kalustyan's in
terms of herbs and spices.

Meanwhile, I CAN'T WAIT FOR TRADER JOES!!!! First, because it's a
spectacular store with great products and low prices. Second, because
it's moving in next to WHOLE FOODS and I want those *******s to bite
it.

WF's quality and service goes down and down, and the prices go up and
up. Weird how it was one of my favorite stores a few years ago, and
I'd sooner buy food at Kmart now.

We've finally got a Trader Joe's in Hampton Roads. I'm pretty exctited
about it.....except that to get there, I have to drive through the
Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel Traffic Magnet.

If I were to go to TJs on, say, a saturday morning at 6 AM, or perhaps
a Wednesday evening after 8, it would probably take me 40 minuts to get
there. But add on about 30 minutes for HRBT traffic any weekday during
daylight / working hours, and you're looking at an hour to an hour
fifteen. So it's gonna be an every-so-often stock up trip.

That's okay, in my few shopping experiences there, the produce is well
priced but nothing special; it's the frozen goods, cheeses, and some of
their gourmet items like sauces, salsas, jams, granola, etc that will
draw me there.

Not the same place. This was on 3rd Ave. somewhere near 13th Street, which
I believe is in the East Village.

The latest Penzeys catalog says they'll be having a store in whatever
Grand Central Station is being altered into. Tentative, no dates
given, etc.

That matches the fact that it's near Kiehl's, which is on 3rd Ave at
13th Street (or maybe 12th). I've been all up and down there but don't
remember any herbalist, but then again at least half of the cool
businesses in New York have closed in the last few years. (Frankly, I
don't think you can "claim" to be a major city when you don't have a
Thai market, a punk club or a leather bar.)

Thank you, Dan. It was nice of you to give me a Panzey store. It
will (hopefully) open in April!!!! It will be tiny compared to their
other shops, but was we say, "He Who Does Not Honor The Small, Is Not
Worthy Of The Large". "Wer das Kleine nicht ehrt, ist das Grosse
nicht wert."

First Nancree and now you. Today, it is good to be me!

Margaret, you're gonna love TJ's...but especially the Two Buck
Chuck!!!!!

I shopped there, today, and found a zillion things I REALLY needed.
(Like Meyer Lemon cake mix and Kosher chicken and whole wheat tortillas
and enough other stuff to total $50.00)). Not bad, considering I went
in for one container of yogurt and a loaf of bread.

I wrote this before, but here it is again: Less than 2 weeks ago we went to
Whole Foods and Trader Joes, directly across the street from one another.
Looks to me like Trader Joes is cleaning up on WF. (Falls Church, VA)
There's a world of difference in the helpfulness and knowledge of the people
who work there. I go to WF to buy beef and chicken and a few other things,
but usually when I find a brand I like at WF, when I go back, it won't be
there. TJ's has cod that I like.

WF started up like Starbucks. It was cool they offered employees a
living wage, prices were okay, and everybody was happy and helpful.
Then somehow they turned Stepford and/or a$$hole. The employees got
angry, the lines got long, and the price of every item in the store was
raised from 20 to 50%.

I've actually made FRIENDS at TJ's, though -- both employees and other
customers. They're like cool, creative East Village artists, as
compared to WF's pushy Upper East Side bitch. Add in well-paid
employees, great products (including organic stuff that's a fraction of
WF's cost, and much less *precious*) and STILL low prices, and you've
got my favorite supermarket in the whole wide world. I'm hoping a
little humility will knock WF down a peg or two.

Or from moving "down here" changing our 'ways.'
When speaking of the northerners moving to the South, someone from the
"South" told me of a bumper sticker he's seen that says, "We don't care how
you did it."

I don't know about "east village artists" here in Virginia, TJ people are
generally 'cool' as you say.

One thing that always gets me going if I ask a question is when a snippet
looks at me with a crazy look and says "EXCUSE ME?" Where and when did this
phrase come about and why is it still in existence? But I seem to bring it
on. LOL.

Sorry to piggy back, Dee!

I went to a Trader Joe's when I was in California that had recently
opened in Tustin. Not only did it have food, it was large and had lots of
space, compared to the barely 2 cart wide lanes at my TJs. Tustin's TJs
still goofed on the parking spaces only about 20 spots.

My TJs goofed even worse. You have to climb up a staircase to get into
it, then carefully roll your cart down a gradual 50-foot zig-zag sidewalk
to ground level.

I've been to NY many times and it's impossible to spot supermarkets, I
guess they're just markets? Wonder how the TJs will stand out amongst all
that neon?

Guess that might leave out me shopping there. I'm not disabled or infermed,
but this would inconvenience me too much.
Not a 'blue hair,' but among the elderly, and still shopping, shopping,
shopping,
Dee Dee
P.S. Whole Foods, or Bread and Circus in Washington, D.C. has/had a 'funny'
situation for people shopping who drive in. The shopper goes into an
underground parking lot (directly under the store), and then after shopping,
a 'person' (don't know if he/she has a title) takes the cart onto an
elevator down into the basement parking. The shopper gets the car, while
the 'person' waits with the groceries, then loads them into the car for the
shopper. This sounds like good service, but there is something eery that
makes me uneasy about it. Guess I'm not used to being 'in the city.'
Dee Dee
P.S. Again. There's something about TJ's aisles that make me feel anal
retentive; does that mean that I will feel stingy and not buy as much there?
Hopefully so, even tho their prices are right, my bill is always large. I
think it is hard not want the expansiveness of large aisles, although in
most stores with larger aisles, it's still a pain with two carts, to pass.
Also, music (not musak) gives me a lift and helps me to buy, buy, buy.
Particularly those hot songs in the 60's, which must be a PITA for all the
young folks. I could use more of that in TJ's (perhaps they're playing them
there). I would suspect WF is playing "The Four Seasons" steadily.

Dee Dee,

Underground parking is nice, since you're not fighting for street
parking.

Separate grocery escorted delivery by elevator to your car or do you take
the same elevator? Underground parking while convenient is dangerous. The
escorts are probably security guards for your protection and to capture
hidden bad guys by video and force.

It's been a while since I was there. My next trip into DC will be a month
from now. You've got me goin' -- I'm going back and look-see. I use to love
their bread department.
I don't recall whether the elevators were separate or not -- seems I recall
that the elevators were for everyone; maybe it has changed for the better.
Seems those videos always capture the bad guys 'after the fact,' don't they?
Maybe video cameras are a prevention, but even if there were studies,
studies are always suspect.

I've seen one of the meanest criminals turn to butter. It was dark after
I left work, he was on PCP or something and pulled a knife in front of me
and demanded my wallet. I stepped back a few steps, "OK, hold on, OK" and
and instead of reaching for my wallet, I pulled out my .45 and pointed it
straight at his heart and asked "Do you still want my wallet?" You never
saw a mean ******* turn into a coward (screaming for mercy) in seconds.

No 'study' needed on this case.
However, in D.C. - no guns allowed for law abiding citizens.

Practice safe eating. Always use condiments.

Thank you. Remember, I wanted to go to TJ's when we were in Lake
Tahoe and was disappointed that there was none within driving range.

Tonight for dinner, Braised Turkey Thighs with Wild Rice and Mushrooms
and Tomato and Cucumber Salad. I will make enough Turkey for two
meals. ) Instead of Two Buck Chuck, we will drink a Ruffino
Chianti.

Margaret,

And I was just for the past few days thinking of moving there. I like the
landscape and the lakesports in the summer and slopes in the winter and
still have family and friends in California to visit or invite.

Nice place to retire, opinions?

I guess I should revisit Lake Tahoe. It's been about 30 years. When I
turned 21, I drove from Oakland, CA to Lake Tahoe in a snow blizzard in
the Sierra's to Harrah's Casino ready to pull out my ID. They didn't even
glance at me, THE BUMS!

I pick up the Ruffino Chianti at Costco. DH doesn't care for it -- but I do.
It's less than $7, and is good enough, not rough, doesn't make me cough at
first taste.

By the way, a poster said to leave the half-used bottle of wine out of the
refrigerator, I find this tip works for me in my cool kitchen. DH always
pumps the air out, though, I don't know how much difference this makes in
the overall taste of refr vs table.

My first visit to Lake Tahoe was by a 'casino bus' from San Francisco during
the Christmas/New Year holidays. I had just met my DH 3 months earlier and
we had no car. The bus and no-tell/motel was the package. On our way back,
the bus ran off the road in a snow blizzard. We were there for hours
stranded until somehow we got rescued; it didn't matter to us lovebirds.
Now I think how irritated I get when we're stuck in traffic that I should
program myself to think of that time.

Andy, I hope you are now looking 'young for your age.'
