Schillinger Goes to Maggiano’s

If you’re thinking about going to Maggiano’s, don’t, unless you like being crammed into a postage stamp-sized table two feet away from people crammed around other postage stamp-sized tables. You’re more likely to hear the four tables around you than the person sitting right next to you. The food was good, but the service was pretty crappy. If you want good service, amazing food and a bill in the same ballpark, go to Zeffirelli in Herndon.

In something completely unrelated, I’ve been thinking about Oz. I love the show, and I’m almost embarrassed to admit it. Why do I like it? Why do I love it? It’s completely alien to me. It’s a world where there are immediate consequences for your actions and mercy doesn’t exist. There are no heroes, just lesser villains. It’s absolutely brutal and without remorse. See, so unlike my world. The acting is always top-notch and the story are as original as they come. Seasons one and two are out on DVD now if you haven’t seen it. Just make sure the kids aren’t around. Also, be sure to take it in small doses. It’s sometime (ok, often) hard to take. Ok, that was the worst review of anything ever. But go get the DVD and come back and tell me what you think.
