It’s hard to believe but Mrs. SMEs and I have less than a month to go before we head to Thailand for two weeks. Thoughts are naturally turning to all things Thai. Sticking with that theme, a few quick notes:
- Chim’s Thai Kitchen, currently with outposts at Cooper’s Landing and in Jefferson City, will be opening a third location in the former Casablanca spot in Peachtree Center. The timeframe is “a couple of months,” because there’s quite a bit of work to be done on the building. The Jefferson City location will remain open, while Chim’s at Cooper’s Landing is closing for the season after this weekend.
- This is good, because the best Thai food I’ve had in Columbia in years was in someone’s home Sunday night. CoMo needs good Thai food in a big, bad way.
- Below is an actual encounter between me and the travel nurse who’d just given me tetanus, Hepatitis A and flu shots last weeek – along with several prescriptions – before the turning to additional dangers I should be aware of, like pick-pockets and street vendors selling delicious food:
Nurse: “Remember to not eat anything from the street vendors. Or on the floating markets.”
Me: “Um, yeah…”
M: “That’s why I’m going to Thailand.”
N: “To eat street vendor food?”
M: “Pretty much.”
N: “That diarrhea medicine’s going to come in handy, then.”
