Life in Israel made possible with coffee and beer.

Recent clip of mine in The Jerusalem Post. It's pretty good.

Mmmmm......"The Jerusalem Post".....indeed, somewhere I heard about that newspaper.*

A nice piece. Made me smile. And like you, I enjoy Cafe Sucar. Perhaps the best cafe macchiato in the city and several very pleasant waitresses.

*Just teasing......I actually wrote for the Post for quite a few years - in fact from 1977 until 1997, a large part of that time writing for both HaAretz and the J.Post. At that time writing for both was possible because HaAretz had not yet started its English language edition and there was no conflict of interest or readership. When HaAretz joined forces with the International Herald Tribune in 1997 I had no choice but to leave the Post. Some good memories, some not so good but no regrets.

One amusing story......at one time the Jerusalem Post had a relatively small staff of critics and featurs writers and, in order not to let readers think that only a dozen or so people were writing all of the articles, we all took on a collection of pseudonyms. Among my better ones at the time were David George (literary criticism, essays and op-ed pieces), David Louison (essays and op-ed) and T.W. Lapereau (culinary feature pieces). As to what "T.W. Lapereau" stands for, that, like my age is something I will share only with those women i know in the Biblical sense.

Yes, while under contract with the JPost I'll just say that you're not the only person to tease about the place.

I also write with a pseudonym, Ken McBride. Good to spread the hate garnered from left-wing realism around rather than have it all directed at just one address, namely me.

As for Sucar, I feel like their slogan could be, "Come for the coffee. Stay for the waitresses."
