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!
Behind the bar!
Dr. Benway returns!
Released Kraken salad! It was good.
The peripatetic muse of beer.
The last two beers Dr Benway and I had were extremely strong so we didn’t finish them. Such is life and hats off to An for his hospitality.
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.
Token food image.
& 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.
Blackeyed peas for New Years Day
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.
Supposedly Walt Disney's KC studio.
