DJRePete has an electronica spotlight to slide you into your holiday weekend with LIMITS and Matisyahu, and a throwback by Walter Meego!
You’ll be pleased to know that Hanabi has lifted his unannounced moratorium on beer. He had a little New Years thing going on where he didn’t drink any beer for a minute. But, he’s wisely given up on that and now we can talk beer again. If Odin Brewery’s Thor’s Equinox doesn’t grab you, then I don’t know what will.
Hanabi completed their sweep of New Orleans over Halloween weekend and it was a real eat-fest from start to finish. Yes there were several trips to Cafe Du Monde. That’s mandatory. But it was the jazz brunch at Commander’s Palace among others that stole the show. We’re talking bbq shrimp and grits here! The LPG Burger at La Petite Grocery is ridiculous! They have badass shrimp and grits too! If you want to get weird on Magazine st. head over to District Donuts. Not that their food is at all weird. It’s just a really cool thing to say. While Hanabi was out partying, other Hanabi found some Mole Salumi at Salumi Cured Meats. You’re welcome! He also made some beer and bacon pancakes. You’re extra welcome.
Every year in the Japantown section of San Francisco the Cherry Blossom Festival takes place. It’s a spring-time celebration of all things Japanese. Several streets are closed of for blocks in either direction. There are parades, concerts, Cosplayers, Lolitas and oh yeah, street food as far as the eye can see. The most anticipated was the Hello Kitty food truck. Basically it doesn’t even have to serve good food. It just has to be cute, and the lines will form. If you enjoy a crisp Sapporo, Takoyaki, fried mochi and great people watching then this is the event to come to.
DJ Hanabi just texted me to tell me that Forbes has reported that Seattle is the current number 2 coolest city in the country. Someone is feeling a little sure of themselves. We figured we’d let him back it up by giving an update now that he’s a little more settled in his new digs. Tanakasan sounds like it hits the spot.
So this week we thought we should drop some real talk about the language that food producers use to either reel us in or to de-emphasize some of the gross things they’re putting in our food.
