Thanks for the invite. I am really excited about the Ethiopian food at !Globalquerque!. Had it a lot when I lived in DC. The Blue Nile was my favorite place to eat. Finally, after 15 years, I get to enjoy it again!

Been after Rachid for a couple of years. He always seems to tour North America in the summer...

Hi Tom, are you upright yet? Globalquerque was stellar! Thanks for letting me play in your pool. I'm still tired but happy. When can you bring Rachid Taha?
