    At a diner in Greenwich Village, in the beginning of March 1960, all of those people were hanging there, one day in afternoon.

    Then two men had met there and took third board from famous mahagony bar, which is now reassembled in an Austin restaurant.

    Only one of the two took notice of even then famous artists and composers. Neither did the above mentioned artists notice the two men who appointed their meeting at the diner.

    It was an interview, in fact in the eve of Mar Del Plata chess turnament...

    One of those two guys who dined at this dner was, errr, Bobby Fischer,who brought with himsef letter with pairings and tournament scheduleand his shabby pocket chess set.

    The other was Mr. Brady...

    Fischer had Loewenbrau draft beer and super sized very spicy spare ribs with honey mustard, while Mr. Brady had metrosexual Heinken and curry.

    Fischer told to Mr. Brady that he was going to prepare only for comrade Bronstein, as he regarded Olafsson and Spassky as easier opponents. He demonstrated myriads of variations on his pocket chess set to stunned Brady. (At the time Fischer began to change his diet from only fish filets plus orange juice to Indian and generally spicy cuisine accompanied with 1-2 glass of wine or beer.)

    This, we can say event, shows how New York was a kind of center of the world during sixties without anyone being aware of that.
