This unusual arrangement decorates the wall at one of my favorite restaurants, Tin Pan Galley in Sackets Harbor, NY. It serves really interesting and delightful dishes, including an appetizer of white-bean hummus, roasted peppers, caramelized onions, balsamic reduction, and toasted pita points that makes me swoon (and is more than satisfying as a full meal). Mostly we eat outside, in the garden with the live music. Sometimes, though, we take a seat indoors, and that’s where I had to snap this photo. It’s an interesting artistic arrangement, but as a musician I feel a pang of sympathy for the instruments. What are they doing cooped up in that little frame? Music needs to be free!
