This Mets fan salutes Derek Jeter's 3,000th hit.

Lisa Swan, a true blue Yankees fan, has expressed her reservations about the hoopla, and, were I a Yankee fan, I might well feel the same. Nevertheless, I'm delighted to see a great player achieve this distinction, even if he had to do it by getting a home run against my favorite, old home town, Designated Hitter League team. After all, I owe Jeter a debt of gratitude for his house having driven more traffic to my blog than any topic except Grace Slick or Pierre Bonnard. (Photo taken at the bar of the Heights Cafe.)

How to make an egg cream.

Kenny shows you how to make the classic Brooklyn refresher. Note that it contains neither egg nor cream. He doesn't mention it, but you do need to use whole milk; otherwise, you won't get that good, foamy head. You can also use different flavors of Fox's syrup, including coffee and vanilla.
