Yesterday, [livejournal.com profile] mnemex and I had dinner with his uncle, Toby, at La Caridad 78, a Cuban-Chinese place. We ordered nice, soulfood type dishes -- Arroz con Pollo, Ropa Vieja, and surprsingly pleasant steamed pork dumplings.

One group had a bottle of wine, which, while still full, dropped and shattered, spilling all the contents. The first thing the waiters did was to dump a bucket of sawdust into the mess. This seems to make it much easier to clean up. Gotta remember that trick.
