Inspired by a recent Fresh Air interview with the great Billie Jean King, I wrote a piece about the importance of teaching kids--girls especially--adaptability. You can find it here, at the website Bon Bon Break.

I'm sure the new place is fine. It may even be excellent. But it doesn't have the poetry that Chicken, Steak & Chocolate Cake did.

By the way, I have no idea whether Chicken, Steak & Chocolate Cake was ever a functioning restaurant.
