Federer: Mozart and Metallica

Le Swisse!  Good luck this weekend, Federer.  In honor of a push for a 17th Grand Slam title, here's David Foster Wallace's 2006 article on the religious experience of watching Roger Federer play for NYT's Play magazine.

"The thing with Federer is that he's Mozart and Metallica at the same time, and the harmony's somehow exquisite."

Fun little history of Philippe's, our historic downtown French Dip restaurant.  An excerpt:

Opened in 1908 by one Philippe Mathieu, the "French Dipped Sandwich" stumbled into history one day in 1918. While making one of his signature hearty sandwiches, Mathieu clumsily dropped a sliced French roll into a still-hot pan, soaking in its natural roast juices. The customer offered to eat the food anyway, loved it, and returned the following day, this time with friends, requesting more dipped sandwiches. Whether it was Mathieu's French heritage, the French roll itself, or the fact that the customer’s name was Officer French, the exact details matter little. On this day, the “French Dipped Sandwich” became official.
