I went to see Andrew WK’s book reading/interview at the Strand for the new 33 1/3 book about his hit album, I Get Wet. Half way through, I realized I knew the author! …back from college and some early years of NYC. I felt so stupid that I didn’t recognize him. Well, glad to see he’s doing well.
Then afterward, I went to Oh! Taisho. I got a few skewered things, like liver, scallions, garlic and quail eggs. Then I decided I needed one more thing on the menu. I got the Deep Fried Baby Horse Mackerel with Curry Seasoning. They were great. You can eat the heads and the skeletons —all of it!
