DP meets Earl Pickens and Andy Rigg to talk about the 100 year birthday celebration of Lee Cooper at Toraya

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I’ve been having conversations for a while now with one of my Shaded Viewers, Earl Pickens and today we finally met at Toraya to discuss the Lee Cooper 100 year celebration in collaboration with the World Health fund.

Earl Pickens and Andy RIgg

Andy Rigg, one of the owner’s of Lee Cooper and DP (I’m wondering what that big circle is on my shoulder..)

I wish they’d bring back the tofu sandwich as the menu seems to be shrinking and with Andy being allergic to fish there was practically nothing to eat.

More about the 2008 birthday celebration later.
