City Farewell, Sweet Jade
The Jade Pagoda is closing forever on the 31st of August. Truly, nothing gold can stay. I phoned last night to ascertain why (why, oh why?), and while the barkeep was very nice on the phone, he did not call me back as promised. Further heartbreak. Probably it has something to do with the fried-egg sandwich incident. I’m still sorry, sweet Jade, and I will miss you.
