My colleague Dr. Benway and I had some rather good Virginia beer at MEKONG Thursday night. My favorite was the Flemish ale kept in a Kluge wine barrel. None of this was lawnmower beer. Seguro que hell no!
The current issue of STYLE WEAKLY killed a passel of trees. It’s nearly as big as a phone book and (I’ll guess) 75% of the content is ads.
And MEXICO best in RVA? Hijole! Glop city.
(From The Paris Review) ::
The term *foodie* is an infantilism.. it’s a diminutive; the sort of term that a child would use, like doggie or duckie. Or kiddie-winkie.
One could do a PORTLANDIA for any city with a “scene”. I lived in Austin for 20 years and in Richmond, VA for 21. Clueless hipsters are nothing new, kids.
Linklater’s SLACKER did not have the big yucks that PORTLANDIA does, though. Or the budget.
& Richmond claims to be the third most tattooed city in the US. This is probably due to all of the trust fund kiddies who spend their patrimony on skin “ort”. Too many layabouts.
I found some fresh blackeyed peas and I’m simmering them in white wine with thyme, oregano, savory, a scrap or two of pancetta, and some chile caribe from New Mexico.
I wonder if I should cook rice or cornbread? (I did rice. Easier.)
(Note: a New Years Day ER meet up would be interesting. Karen can come, too.)
I guess a flaneuse can’t be a foodie.
