A Note from Robin
I’m starting a new job this month and I’m excited about it. Perfect timing, too—September has always seemed like the definitive time for fresh starts. If you live in Cologne, or if your travels bring you to this part of Germany, I hope you’ll stop by the Excelsior Hotel Ernst. It’s practically next door to the glorious Cologne Cathedral. You can go visit the (alleged) remains of the Three Wise Men and then pop over to the Excelsior for a little Piano Girl music, a glass of champagne, and a handful of macaroons. Religion, relics, culture, alcohol, and sugar, all in one afternoon. Sound like fun? Check out the Events page for details. I love hearing from you, so don’t be shy about writing, commenting on my essay, or showing up at one of my gigs. Really, I have the best fans in the world. Top shelf, all the way.
