Eid Mubarak!

Why don't we celebrate the end of Ramadan - the Eid al-Fitr - with a little East-Meets-West mashup?

Here we have the great star Samia Gamal - a kind of Ann Miller of the Nile, and a very big deal in the 1950s and 60s - practicing her art to the unlikely strains of Taco's "Puttin' on the Ritz."

It's exactly as surreal as that sounds. Enjoy. With the bars re-opening, with the return of lunches, and with no longer having to have dinner at the exact moment the sun sets, I know I will.
