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...

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?
