"Chai" Praise: as Silver Moon Bakery Turns 18
By Caitlin Hawke
In the February 2001 edition of the BA newsletter, Jock Davenport covered the opening of Silver Moon Bakery in November 2000. Deep in the heart of Y2K. In the very same month of the infamous "election." A year before 9/11. It's a veritable lifetime ago. And yet 18 years have sailed by.
Yes, other places mentioned in the piece like Mama Mexico and Turkuaz are gone, but it's nice to have moonlight glowing still.
If Jock's piece wets your whistle, there's more to read, such as the interview with Judith Norell here and an ode to a favorite hyper-local eat here.
On your 18th, I say, Judith, and to all your Silver Moon family: To life, to life, l'chaim!
Your lagniappe today is Lin-Manuel Miranda's rendition of the "Fiddler on the Roof" tune as a surprise to his bride at their wedding reception. You'll enjoy it for the showmanship even if the singing is a little dicey at times!
