Think I am gonna skip it. Toying with going to the Vaselines instead (Scottish pop-punkers that Kurt Cobain loved). Mostly likely not going to either. Although may go to see old DC soul band Eddie Jones & the Young Bucks at Westminster Church Sw from 6 to 9pm tonight, and a Wizards game tomorrow.

^^^ which strikes me as so fucking weird. I mean even in the middle of fucking nowhere village I lived in Baja there was a tortillaria. No gas station, but fresh tortillas every day from early in the morning until ~2 p.m.

I ate at Elephant Walks today. It is super close to my temporary office, so I figure I'll just show up daily and run the "chef's choice" menu. Cheaper than four sisters (whose menu is intimidating) and much easier to park.

Non-foodie street team pr for my buddy:

We start off 2015 with two screenings of Led Zeppelin Played Here to celebrate the 46th anniversary of when Led Zeppelin did/did not play the gymnasium of the Wheaton Youth Center in Wheaton, MD, in front of 50 confused teenagers on January 20, 1969, the night of President Nixon's first inauguration.

First screening is Wednesday, January 14 at the Avalon Theater in Washington, DC, on Conn Ave right near Chevy Chase Circle (8PM)
http://www.theavalon.org/films/led-zeppelin-played/

And second, an exact 46th anniversary screening on the night the concert did/did not occur.
This will be on Tuesday, January 20 at the Black Cat on 14th Street in DC (doors at 8, screenings usually start 8:30)

Washingtonian q and a--Kliman loves Wheaton Thai restaurants (I haven't been)...and makes that clear in his response re the new internationally owned Thai place Mango Tree, whose first US location is in DC

Hi Todd,

Have you had a chance to visit Mango Tree yet?

I'm wondering how it compares to the other restaurants in town that tout authentic Thai cuisine. We certainly do have some great options for that in DC already.

Todd Kliman:
My first impression is — eh.

I mean, the space is stunning. If you were to ask yourself what the interior of an upmarket Thai restaurant ought to look like, this is pretty much exactly what you would come up with. The colors, the movement, the lights, the tables and chairs. Stunning.

The food? Not stunning. Granted, I only tried three dishes, but nothing made me want to return to try more. A grilled pork neck salad was unbalanced, and not in an interesting way. A crab fried rice was, thankfully, not greasy, but it wasn’t particularly flavorful or distinctive either.

If you were to put Thai Taste by Kob in that location, there would be a line around the block every night.

They've started with Taylor's breaded chicken cutlets -- which are doused in Crystal, the Southern hot sauce with a cult following -- and topped them with sliced cucumber, kale and cabbage slaw, red onion, gorgonzola and a pepper and Parmesan buttermilk dressing.
Available through Feb. 28.
Small: $7.49. Large: $10.49.

Not cheap but kinda looks tempting...

Oh, that does look good.

I ended up going to the Mingering Mike panel discussion at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. It was pretty interesting (and not as awkward as I thought it might be for Mike). Mike did "outsider" art-- soul and funk album covers and some reel to reel tapes and cassettes of his own music from 1966 to 1977 I think. Mike was dressed as a surgeon in gown and mask as he wants to keep his identity secret. The panel included the guy who found Mike's work at a flea market;plus an outsider art author; an old-school WOL AM DC soul dj; and the museum curator. Images of Mike's artwork were projected behind them. They then had free wine, beer, cheese, and dip afterwards as dj Harry Hotter spun soul and funk vinyl in the enclosed courtyard there. But the exhibit itself had closed for the evening so I will have to go back. I had seen a smaller showing of Mike's work at the Hemphill Gallery awhile ago.
