It’s not that Hanabi has the post holiday blues or anything, it’s that he is thrilled that another Christmas is in the books. Usually, we could talk about what to do with all the after Christmas food, but not this year. Instead we checked out a very weird situation going on down at the former Fizzary space. This drama is so good it doesn’t matter if you’re local or not. The Fizzary until recently, was a vintage style soda shop that carried hundreds of varieties of soda from around the world and from craft-styled makers. Anyway, the people that are subleasing the space have apparently turned it into a not-so-underground gambling club and illegal bar. Apparently it’s be so shady that the landlord has taken to extreme measures to notify the police and alcohol commission, and so far no one seems to care. Hanabi also loves movies. His favorite place to catch a movie just so happens to be the Sundance Kabuki theater over in Japantown. This place is rad. There super comfy couch-like chairs with tables attached and you can order real food and drink beer, wine and cocktails as well while watching a flick. After watching a cool flick and getting his swerve on, Hanabi likes to maintain his buzz as one of his favorite locals, which happens to havean amazing cocktail program, as well as a cool bartender who is the same age as Hanabi and has lots of cool late 80’s and early 90’s tales to tell. The bar is called Holy Water and the drink of choice is the bourbon buck, but the painkiller has the better name and the better kind of ice.
Main causes of waste occurs due to poor planning and overbuying as well as from food being stored improperly, according to Dana Gunders, Staff Scientist on Food and Agriculture.
Dana Gunders talks with us about why she wrote the Waste-Free Kitchen Handbook and how 40 percent of food in America goes to waste.

This week Hanabi both hits the road and aspirates to hit the road. First Hanabi explores some of the most ubiquitous British comfort foods starting with the venerable savory pie at Mother Mash near Caraby St. and Harry’s cafe de Wheels in Sydney. Yes, Hanabi is well aware that Sydney is not a part of the UK, but the culinary traditions persist. Hanabi also discusses the jewel in the crown otherwise known as the full English breakfast. Hanabi is currently in New Orleans and that is basically a show unto itself with all that food. Hanabi does enjoy going off the beaten path to try local, budget friendly haunts so check out his visit to Verti-Marte in NOLA for a little po’ boy sandwich and a crawfish beignet.
This episode we explore these various bonds and ask how they facilitate a sense of peace in our lives.
