enjoyed the all-you-can-eat "desserts from around the world" table at the phillips after five with geir.

saw the temptations and the four tops at strathmore. actually, since only one out of each original group is still alive, i suppose i just saw a temptation and a top. mark noted that since a second member of the four tops was the son of an original member, that counted for half a top. the coasters still my favorite doo wop.
