Shakuf in Tel Aviv

This place is creating some buzz, but a lot of it sounds like PR rather than in-depth criticism -

And then there is the killing crit' of our very own Chaim Shraga, albeit lacking in details -

Rogov? Anyone else have an opinion...??

I actually thought the Harry Camacho simile nailed it.

Well, one can Google it but I think my description gives the impression of a fancy boxer with no real substance.

Chaim - The gist of your opinion was clear enough, but sometimes one wants to understand all the nuances in a crit', especially when it is brief. I did try to search the net, but a search for 'Harry Camacho' gets you ~710,000 results in Google.... . Anyhow, very clear now. thanks, cheers, mike

Actually, it's because I made a typo. The name is Hector Camacho. I will fix the post later.
