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!

He would absolutely ROCK the plaza. His agent knows we want him if he comes in our time frame.

The keen-eared among you may have heard his version of "Rock The Casbah" during Plaza Mayor set changes...

Thank you Jesan for jumping in. I'm kinda upright.

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