RE: Sad News About One of US.
Wow...that is sad news. Bernie emailed me some time ago because I mentioned that I travel to Rochester periodically. He told me to drop him a line if I was going to be in the area, and he would throw some recommendations my way.
When I was last in Rochester, I started a thread that was basically sending up the Bat-signal for Berndog, but he never responded. I searched some old threads and found that he recommended a place called the Highland Park Diner. I had a fabulous meal there, finished off with their self-described "world's best apple pie." It lived up to the billing, as did the Highland Park Diner.
Thanks for the recommendation, Bernie.
