Cafe Fledermaus at the Neue Gallerie

An Afternoon at the Neue Gallerie and Cafe Sabarsky

When I started this blog, it was a toss-up between focusing on food or books--I read nearly as much as I cook, if not more--Erin's Kitchen could have been Erin's Library.

However, graduate school not only severely curtailed my cooking, it also reduced my fiction reading to the occasional mystery novel over holiday breaks. Hence, after graduation a few weeks ago, my first move was to crack Roberto Bolano's 2666. Over the past two weeks I carted this 900-page book on the subway and to various coffee shops around New York, reveling in my newfound freedom.

One of my favorite stops was Cafe Fledermaus at the Neue Gallerie on the Upper East Side. Located in the basement of the museum, this lower-key sibling of the upstairs Cafe Sabarsky, is the perfect place to while a way an hour or two with a Wiener Mélange (espresso with steamed milk and foam) and a slice of sachertorte. The menu is the same in both cafes, but the basement cafe is less popular and therefore there's no pressure to give up your table--a perfect reading spot.

The museum was first conceived by two close friends: art dealer and museum exhibition organizer Serge Sabarsky, and entrepreneur, philanthropist, and art collector Ronald S. Lauder. The two men shared a passionate commitment to early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design. thank you for shearing

Cake looks great, but a Bolano book (Savage Detectives) was one of the worst reading experiences of my life. I couldn't finish it, and ended up angry at his wasting my time with drivel.

But food and books? Ahhhhhhh...the classic combination.

The best part about pharmacy technician being a stepping stone is that it makes way for new technicians to take their place. This means that pharmacy technician is a career field that always has openings. Because of this group of technicians who will eventually leave their position as they transition to a new career, we will always have a need for seasoned pharm techs to train, manage, and be the anchor for out technician work force.
