I recall that restaurant with chagrin: I made the mistake of giving 
the clarinet player one of my cards with my picture on it playing the 
clarinet.  He came to the table and spent at least ten minutes 
humiliating me with a 500 mph finger breaker right into my face.  
Tamas said, "Yeah, well, he's been playing that 3 times a day for the 
last 30 years."  I said, "So what?  He can play it and I can't!

It was a great tour, and Tamas is the absolute mostest! He himself is 
worth the price: he is my houseguest (as before) anytime he's in 
Chicago. Don't miss it!

practice there is."   Yogi Berra
