They cannot even agree on what to call it. There are at least five terms for kale, and the technical name, chou frisé non-pommé, translates unappetizingly as “curly headless cabbage.”

i would like to thank the universe for balancing out my unnecessary purchase of an $20 popcorn maker by giving me $20 of free groceries courtesy of a very confused or perhaps angry at the world fresh direct warehouse drone. admitedly my last jar of hoisin sauce mostly got old and crusty in the fridge before i threw it away but that double order of deli roast beef will quickly find a home in my stomach before moving on  to ultimately greener pastures. and how did they know i threw away a jar of honey not two days ago? only the even stevens up in the sky know the answer and i wont add to their workload to query them as i am sure they are woefully understaffed.

i've been on a hunt for granola i actually like. finally, hammer and tuffy's! i've got the banana bread blend, which doesn't seem to be for sale online, and while probably no one orders granola online, it's worth it. i've tried making it myself, but not the best results.

hot air popcorn just not as good as greasy oil based popcorn. did i mention i bought a cheap hot air popper? to be fair, i had no butter, and salt doesnt cling to oilless, butterless popcorn.

Just back from curious night for Michelle bday.....

Went to Alder on early shift,,6;00  (made res pretty late last week so...)  Certainly heard lots of different things abt it...all pretty good, but some disenters here an there... Anyway, had couple cocktails which never usually get, but these were great...Red Zeppelin was one with crazy combo of sumac and paprika powdering rim with gin and strawberry juice inside...awesome, great texture combo..  Other was called-- Dr. Daves Script Pad-- w rye, amaro and smoked maple as operative forces.  This was like amped up dark and stormy frankly, happily bringing back thoughts of RI.  Then from small plate type stuff got  Pigs in Blanket, cool chinese sausage in great lite crust with spicy stuff all around...coulda ate 40...Sun Gold Tomatoes w crab was only under whelmer..just not enough spark, but good clean flavor, must admit...Then had Clam Chowder...fuckin killed...Really impressive depth while being sort of light bodied..not mention those crazy freeze dried(?) oyster "crackers"  They split one order for us, was perfect...Oh, yeah, then in the middle of these a woman (manager turns out) comes over an says.."Here is the Foie Gras terrine on the house, I'm a big fan of your work"...???  I'm like huh,,,? oh great she thinks I'm that fucking actor again....But no, in fact we learn she used to work in galleries,,Boesky for one..(didnt go into that in depth tho)..Pretty nice, must say...Then we went for Fish and Chips which were great... not much of a twist at work powdered malt was cool in this....,And then the truly nuttiest awesome thing...Rye Pasta with Pastrami....This is a complete revelation of a dish...utterly unprecedented I'd say, tho not for everyone evidently,( like who cares?)..Really does taste like Katz's turned into pasta,,,except pastrami better here..Unexpected harmony of mustard and pasta....a new classic.  Had bottle of Irouleguy Rouge fr Ilarria...She brought over decanted which I said was nice to see and she said..."Oh thats Dewey's influence, he insists on it." Of course he doesn't exactly work there but,,,,, so we got to quip about him a bit....Finally had Rootbeer Pudding w smoked Cashews...genius...mellower execution of rootbeer/pretzel item I had at Momofuko Ko while ago, but amazing......Like, I'd go back here...and will.

So as we were finishing got text from gallery dude I know asking if we want to go hear a La Monte Young performance at his place in Tribeca...So yeah, sure, headed down there got on line, went up stairs, paid, took off shoes, sat on carpet, breathed ton of incense, staired at psych projections on wall while electro-drone played....waited.......Eventually Mr Young, and two woman emerged from hall and sang over drone for abt two hrs....long but great...

Cool to know these things still going on in NYC...
