Yesterday,  15 Craigside's lunch outing was Ray's BYOB Kitchen.  I had dined here six months ago, so if you wish details on Chef Ray, click on that posting.  The establishment fronts River Street, and the current culture of the Chinese Cultural Plaza surrounds the entrance.  I looked closely at what was going on, and most of the tables were filled with players and onlookers involved with card games.

We shared a large bottle of Riesling.  There was no corkage charge.  The food is contemporary Chinese fusion.  Above, Mabel's lobster dish with Rose to her right.  Here is Ray:

There has been a fierce storm in the South Pacific the past week.  Category 4 Tropical Cyclone Ula is at 130 MPH and in the general vicinity of New Caledonia.  However, all projections show Ula turning further south and east:
