Porter and I developed a Saturday hankering for a taste of Europe, so we popped up to New Haven to revisit Yale's extraordinary neo-gothic environs. We loved it when we first visited last year - and it's just as breathtaking the third time around (we popped up for pizza and beer at BAR at a couple weeks ago...and got stuck on the highway for two hours after an alleged tornado blew through Westchester and caused a semi to jackknife. It was well worth it).
