Sweet. Smart. Great metrics. Wait for “Results.”
By the time the piece has you, you’ve forgotten the significance of the special offer that inspired the whole thing in the first place. Doubly good … 2-for-1 good.

Chinese New Year is giving us The Year of the Rabbit.
Three reasons I love this.

1. My brother’s a rabbit, according to the Chinese Horoscope, and there’s none better than him.

2. Rabbit is delicious. We grew up on it, marinated in white wine and rosemary, then roasted.

3. The rabbit is spry, lively and deft, a great way of doing business, my model for 2011.

Fave? I would have to say sound: the sound of tearing a hunk off of a real French baguette; the lovely deglaze, any time, anywhere; yeah, the sizzle of the steak, ok; but No. 1 would have to be the expresso’s orgasm when the last of the coffee has sputtered out of the top of those old-fashioned caffetieri.

I hear it calling me now.

A bit too fussy and delux for me, but unmistakably beautiful, so props for that.
