Memorial Day was a busy weekend! I had two weddings--one on Saturday in Pittsburgh at the Conservatory and one in Nassau Bay, Texas (near Houston.)
The wedding in Pittsburgh was my fraternity brother Kevin's, so I got to see lots of college friends and their kids.
The wedding in Texas was my cousin Kim's. Mom and Dad met me at the Houston airport.
Lot's of fun at both weddings!
Now I generally write about good places to eat--and I couldn't be in Texas without eating at a Mexican Restaurant--Mamasita's. Great!

I flew up to New York the weekend of May 6 for the Tribeca Film festival. I saw three films, Local Color, God Spoke, and Word Play.
My favorite was Word Play, a documentary about the New York Times crossword puzzle, the making of crosswords, and a tournament held every year in Stamford, CT.
While there, I visited Ground Zero for the first time since September 11. I've been to New York many times since then, but until this time had only missed the Twin Towers dominating the Skyline to the South.
