Ashland, Oregon, July 19, 2011—
WE THOUGHT OF FASTING, after breakfasting on coffee and a gibassier brought down yesterday from Portland's Pearl Bakery, and letting a handful of almonds and cashews stand in for lunch. But we're here with three other couples, and society trumps principle; besides, we were seeing two plays today, and attention requires nourishment. So we all filed into the old standby pub for dinner.
Pubs don't do a lot for me, but this one is politically correct; has decent food; and lets a party of eight sit outside on a patio where it's relatively quiet. I was content with this ten-inch pizza margherita.
