big thing

you know when you get that pizza and it's not cut all the way through...

gratuitous pulp fiction dialogue

Now this is Panda, from Mexico.
Very good stuff. This is Bava,
different, but equally good. And
this is Choco from the Hartz
Mountains of Germany. Now the
first two are the same, forty-five
an ounce -- those are friend prices
-- but this one...
(pointing to the Choco)
...this one's a little more
expensive. It's fifty-five. But
when you shoot it, you'll know
where that extra money went.
Nothing wrong with the first two.
It's real, real, real, good shit.
But this one's a fuckin' madman.

Remember, I just got back from

Am I a nigger? Are you in
Inglewood? No. You're in my
house. White people who know the
difference between good shit and
bad shit, this is the house they
come to. My shit, I'll take the
Pepsi Challenge with Amsterdam shit
any ol' day of the fuckin' week.

That's a bold statement.

I've been coming to Tarbouch in Arlington Va for about 4 years now, it's a kebab joint, there are a million of them, I've tried the more notable places like Medina in Woodbridge, the Moby Dick's chain, Athens in Chevy Chase, along with tens of other places, and there all good, I mean no one's going to call the authorities on you if you grill tender ground lamb in onions, parsley, and cumin. And I could very well eat at the many other killer eateries in Arlington when I'm down that way, The Italian Store sits across the the street,..but what keeps me and many other patrons coming back is,..what else,... their food is prepared with ultra fresh ingredients, and it's prepared simply, not overdone. Pictured is the chicken and beef Kafta with flavorful chick peas, micro greens, jasmine rice and naan.

It's mediterranean so they have the Kafta, Kabab, Mezza, (try their grape leaves!). And most anything they make, they will put in a wrap or a sandwich for you , that's usually all I see people eat there when I go,..everything good in a portable package. They also have a respectable vegetarian menu too. One other note about Tarbouch, they serve you this tasty meal , but in uneccessarily ENORMOUS portions. No one will ever have to convince me to eat at Tarbouch at any time. Open till 3am Fri and Sat.

Kite Day

The 42nd annual Smithsonian Kite Festival today, a billion people, along wih a billon kites down at the national mall on a very clear crisp day,.. today marked the beggining of the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival here in D.C., and the kites are always a perfect visual spectacle to go along with the 2 week long events. This the 4th straight kite festival for me and every time there was at least a 15 mph wind from the west.
