The List

September 14, 2003 1:10 p.m.

May I tell you about our specials? This evening we have an exquisite braised pheasant in a decadent mushroom sauce...

A list of those, living and dead, who are On the List, who possess perpetual entrance beyond the Velvet Ropes to the Cafe and the Table. You may occasionally glimpse their ghosts knocking back Pernod and slapping cheeky waiters. In no particular order:

D.H. Lawrence
Jorge Luis Borges
Sylvia Plath
The Pablos--Picasso and Neruda
Lawrence Durrell
Milorad Pavic

Ezra Pound
Anna Ahkmatova
Marina Tsvetaeva
Clarice Lispector

Allen Ginsberg and Ernest Hemingway are on probation, but provisionally allowed when they keep their hands to themselves.

And of course, Catherynne Valente, Cristina Chavez, and Rene Seagraves live here. The bar has threatened to cut off their tab.

This list will grow. Any nominations are welcome.
