Rumor has it…

Although I do not personally dab too much in technology these days (smartphones are getting harder and harder to understand), I have recently heard rumors floating around the Dali that a certain website will be undergoing certain updates that may or may not relate to those who spend all their time with their nose in their cell phones. Now, I cannot say for sure, for Gala has been sworn to secrecy, but I have an inkling that this new website will be of utmost importance in relation to browsing on-the-go. Out of all of the gibberish I have heard, online shopping was what stood out most clearly to me… and something about it being simple and the fact that I can access it anywhere didn’t bother me one bit.

Apparently there will also be some sort of entertainment on the website as well, for the children perhaps? I do see nowadays plenty of parents soothing their kids with tablets… or maybe it will be a special application for adults instead, having seen how well adults can also be distracted with the release of the “Dali Goodpak Hipstamatic” application last year. Of course, none of this is set in stone, and most importantly you definitely didn’t hear it from me. Now if only I could figure out how to check my WordPress blog through this new phone…

Birthing genius, from palette to palate

It draws near, my friends – an event which has so held my attention for some time already. Chef Paco Perez, of whom I practically gushed last month, will be performing a culinary demonstration at The Dali on October 30. Finally! We welcome a genius into the fold, who can turn our minds toward the fantastical and exquisite.

He has told me in confidence that he will demonstrate how to prepare his Huevos Mar y Montaña, or Huevos “M y M.” Eggs of the sea and mountains … what a brilliant thought. Eggs, a universal symbol of birth or rebirth, coupled with the sea and mountains, steadfast symbols of constancy and strength.

True birth is difficult, my darlings. I am not referring, of course, to the vulgar process of birthing a child … the off-putting screams of infant and mother alike are enough to make anyone lose their appetite. No, I speak of the moment in which an artist finally recognizes his true form. Genius is not easy to possess, dear friends. Artists are forced to cultivate their vision and imagination among the common masses. Imagine the strain!

But I digress. Huevos Mar y Montaña. Though I would sooner serve my own eyes on a dinner plate rather than spend time in the kitchen cooking for loved ones, the opportunity to see a master at work is too compelling to miss.
