Awesome party for Daniel Delaney’s video food blog, VendrTV. He had Calexico Carne Asada, Schnitzel & Things, and Wafels & Dinges parked outside, dishing out the food. I’m ashamed to say I’ve been turned off from their long lines in the past and never tried them, but now I believe. I believe in them all. One of the better juicy pork tacos I’ve eaten. The chicken schnitzel was really good. I gotta try the deep fried schnitzel burger next time. I had a bite of everyone’s waffle. Yes, eat fresh waffles! Dinges? I think I corrected someone how to pronounce it, but I think I was wrong.
Makes me think of my past prejudices against newish-hipster food carts/trucks, like when I thought it was a sad day when Calexico won their Vendy. Why can’t young people make food just as good, if not better than a poor-looking immigrant at a dirty cart? I feel as dirty as those roach carts –for not having faith.
Ran into old food blog friends like Amy & Robyn. Made many new food blog friends. Dance party. Dan’s friend tried to teach me how to salsa or tango. I thought I was amazing. She thought I was drunk. I kept forgetting her name, so I thought it was a good trick to hand her my phone to put her number in. Then I later realized she didn’t put her name. I thought I was going to text something clever to find out her name, but the next morning all I saw in my outgoing messages: “Your butt accidentally called my phone.” I guess I really wasn’t good at the tango.
