Today, I went out to lunch with our house guest, vegetarian and Australian folk singer song-writer, Darren Hanlon. I wanted to take him to the Dosa Guy in Washington Square Park, but we couldn’t find him. Instead I remembered one of the best vegetarian and best overall meals I’ve had was right around the corner at Meskerem’s Ethiopian Restaurant. The Vegetarian Combo at only $8.50. We got an order for two and got stuffed. This meal makes me remember that I don’t always need to order meat to enjoy myself. My favs were the brown ones. Darren’s fav was green string bean one …but all so good.

Darren Hanlon’s in town in NYC playing a number of shows, including a CMJ performance tonight. Check him out and his new album on Yep Roc. Coincidentally, Pitchfork just gave it a glowing review today on their site. That’s badass.
