Major Faidley Bummer
Major Faidley Bummer is not a Joseph Heller character. It's when I walk from the Sun Building to Lexington Market (it must be three miles!) to get some fried oysters at Faidley Seafood, just to kind of confirm how smart I was for including it on this week's Top 10 list, come to find out there aren't any fried oysters. At least not now. I was told they'll be here in November. (But they were shucking oysters at the raw bar?)
But my walk wasn't a total waste of time (and, really it's more like 5 miles), because I stopped by Berger's and picked up three fine cakes (one chocolate, one strawberry, one coconut) for Erik Maza's birthday.
I was told I'd be reimbursed by Mr. Abell personally and to wait outside his office until someone came out for me.
Go over to Midnight Sun and wish Erik a happy 37th birthday.
