The first photo is of a piece of yummy looking cake that I decided not to eat although I did have brisket and matzoh ball soup at the new deli called I think Eleven 11 by Ruben. I hope to get back there to eat that cake. And so my headline is a reference to the famous Robert frosting
I met about 50 people in LA that I thought I could do some business with and one of my highlights was to run into Bruce Solar now a honcho at APA agency for performing arts but I knew him from his San Francisco salad days absolutely. He represents the rock band Cake although their name does not reference a dessert thing you can bake but more like the idea that when you step into a puddle of Mudd with your boots on it is “caked“. Or in that usage I guess the dirt on your shoes is cake otherwise the band would have five letters not four.
