Dope things to do tonight:
1. "If you like to party in the 80's you almost certainly still enjoy partying in the 90's. So let's keep this musical adventure rolling..." If you're staying in, but still want to party listen to King Hans plays dj at www.bigduckmusic.com from 10-12pm.
2. Que Bajo?! @ APT with Geko Jones & Uproot Andy. Special Guests this week: N-Ron & Disco Shawn (Bersa Discos). Andy is my friend, he is awesome. He knows about all kinds of crazy music and will really make you wanna shake your money maker. Geko is cool too.
3. Go to Lit. It is the best lounge in New York.
4. Nothing - because you have the most annoying cough ever (I went to the doctor its not swine flu!) and you'd like to have a fun weekend. This may be more wack than dope- I'm really not sure.

"Three is a magic number,Yes it is, it's a magic number. Somewhere in the ancient, mystic trinity You get three as a magic number.... It takes three legs to make a tri-pod Or to make a table stand. It takes three wheels to make a ve-hicle Called a tricycle.
Every t riangle has three corners, Every triangle has three sides, No more, no less. You don't have to guess. When it's three you can see It's a magic number".
Top picture is from a great, whiskey infused day in Central Park with two Johns, a Jake and a Melinda. Bottom two are from 125th St. last weekend after going to see free music at Columbia University with Steph. Steph has the most amazing hair. I biked there and back on the west side highway- it was truly sublime.

John and I love this meal. I think I make it at least once a week. The days I get to bring tempeh surprise (John invented the name) leftovers to work are always good ones. I got the recipe from Fresh at Home- a cookbook from the restaurant Fresh in Toronto http://www.freshrestaurants.ca/. I follow the recipe pretty loosely, but it always turns out delicious. Sometimes I make it with brown rice, sometimes with soba noodles. And depending on what I have lying around I will either make a tahini dressing or a sunflower seed dressing. I think it is the combination of the saltyness from the marinade on the tempeh, the creamyness of the dressing and avocado, the acidity of the tomato and the sweetness of the pear that make this meal so damn good. Plus, eating steamed broccoli, kale, bok choy and or cabbage will make you feel insta-healthy no matter how much cheap beer and or whiskey you have consumed. My camera battery was dying when I took the pictures, I think it really affected their quality. I was hoping for something like the images on http://www.smittenkitchen.com/ but that totaly did not happen, she (my camera) fully died right when eveything was done- so sadly there is no final shot of my culinary masterpiece.
Jacket: Acne from Copenhagen
T-Shirt/Dress: Air Jordan from NikeTown Chicago
Tights: American Apparel
Shoes: Alife Chuck Sneaker from Alife Rivington Club
On my way home from work. I was craving some color because the past 2 days had been so grey. Ended up at a bar called Joe's in the East Village followed by a delicious dinner with Lindsay and John at Odessa. Lindsay had come right from work and brought us croissants. I think we left them at the bar. Bummer.

if i were taller i would have a pied-à-terre in san francisco. sf is gnarly. it has two distinct vibes, beach and bay, and an abundance of amazing neighbourhoods. the weather can be a bummer, but year round, you can just hop into your fuel efficient car and cruise 20 minutes down the coast to beaches and sunshine and surfer babes. you can also drive to vineyards and wine tasting rooms. i loved wine and labels at bonny doon (https://www.bonnydoonvineyard.com/) the most (thank you jared). sf is home to some of my favorite places on earth- the haight, city lights books and the japanese tea garden in golden gate park. sf is also home to my friend jason. j and i met when we were about 15 and bonded over our love of phish, franny's, jack and jill. the sf beat really suits him. jason is a great person to know because he is the king of good food. he took john and me to one of the most delicious and cozy restaurants ever called the front porch (http://thefrontporchsf.com/main.html). john and jason both had fried chicken. i had the vegan plate- all local organic stuff- which was good but didn't blow my mind. the grits, however, did blow my mind and are now on the list of food i dream about. a list that includes the beauty's special from beauty's in montreal (http://www.beautys.ca/) and the black bean and avocado burrito that you can only get at the take out window of cafe habana in manhattan (http://www.ecoeatery.com/).
