Welcome to The Epic! I am launching this blog as a manifesto for and a guide to living well. The title and motto of the blog are taken from the Epicureans, at least some of whom believed in the notion that not one minute of the future was guaranteed to them and that as a result they had the duty to live life to its fullest every moment.

I believe in discovering fun and pleasurable things wherever I find myself each day and I am told I have a knack for unearthing them. My hope is that by sharing in my pleasures and some of my ways of finding them you will begin to collect all the riches that lie in the moments of your life. They are there. Take them! All our lives should be.....Epic.

Closing Interlude

My last night in New Orleans for this trip ended here.  Patrick's Bar Vin on Rue Bienville right across from the Royal Sonesta Hotel.  I have taken my nightcap here for a few trips now.  Patrick is a very amiable host in this intimate bar, having become famous in these parts as maitre' of the now [sadly] departed Bistro restaurant at the Maison DeVille Hotel.  Patrick's has it all. A great little bar. Nice bartenders. Deep chairs. Interesting people.  And...Chimay Tripel on tap...

And, all sorts of wine by the glass.  And, really great Cognac...

At the end of a hectic business day, in the wee small hours, I seek out the quiet places. Should you find yourself in the Crescent City, I hope you will try some of my favorites and make them yours as well.
