Name-Dropping: Still not much time to write about the Met because I'm going off on a Long Island adventure with Ruby Cookbook contributor Kevin Marshall soon. So I'll just mention the impressive stuff I hadn't seen before. Because most of the new stuff I saw was fairly modern and had a name associated with it, I can do this in the form of name-dropping: Raphael, Rembrandt, Picasso, Dali, Miro, Goya, Bastien-Lepage, Eames, Sottsass, Jan Stern, and the strangely photorealistic Robert F. Blum.

I also discovered a creepy sub-floor called the Henry R. Luce Center, which is a sort of browsable storage space for the museum. It's full of furniture and paintings and bottles just lined up on shelves behind glass, with minimal signage.
