WARREN and NEW HAVEN CONNECTICUT – A long day. I started in Warren where I caught our dining room draped for repainting the ceiling. Mid-day I drove down to New Haven to join my college reunion in progress.

NEW HAVEN CONNECTICUT – We drove down to New Haven for the day – Maria is speaking at a publishing symposium and I’m catching up on the culinary wonders of New Haven and the redone Yale Art Gallery. Food-wise I decided to go for historical significance – I had lunch at Louis’ Lunch, where the Hamburger sandwich was invented in the late 1890s – there seems to be some confusion over the date. It’s still in a parking lot on Crown Street, but its now a tourist destination. No kidding. A tour bus was standing in front of it when I arrived. There are exactly three places at the counter, one table that seats six (that seemed to be occupied permanently by locals) and three pew-like contraptions with tiny tables. The burgers are still cooked on unique vertical cookers and served on lightly toasted wonder bread. The meat quality was indifferent. Not a place to return to.
