Mark Peel + Roy Choi: The Mash Up

Aloha, y’all!

COME. BE WITH US. And join us for a diner’s house party, serving up the best of LA from a side of LA that satellites and all those out-of-towners know nothing about. 

Read on: this leap year, 2/29, Mark Peel’s tossing the keys to the rebel that is Roy Choi and doing it up in a way that Tar Pit’s never been done up before.  The best of Harvey Guss crashes headlong into LA’s K-Town from unexpected sources, culminating in a mash up served by the people, for the people and to the people of LA County.  With their powers combined comes a raw history lesson and love letter so deep, so goofy that our most beloved of food bloggers will be hard-pressed capturing it all on his DSLR. Meanwhile, Pollyn’s Adam Weissman will take a turn at the turntables to get this party underway.

So knock back a hard cocktail or crack open that beer as we all kick back and relax and allow for the beauty of LA to permeate Tar Pit’s atmosphere.

…aaaaaand that’s about as close to a press release as these writerly fingers can manage for you dudes at the moment. For a moment there, I sounded almost professional, didn’t I?

Bee tee dubs — the last I heard, that green tea shave ice is intentionally being served up extra crunchy.  IN A GOOD WAY.  I’ll update with more details on the menu items soon enough!

So see y’all this leap year, yeah?

Love, tacos and mash-ups,


P.P.S.  Did any of y’all spend February 14th with an extra special valentine?  CUZ AH SURE DID.


THIS is Francis.  But I call him Frannie.  He’s probably my first valentine in over a half a millenium.  Granted, I solicited my Valentine at the counters of Chego, but ya know what?  HE SAID YES.  And he’s smiling so hard in this photo that you can hardly see the nose of the gun I’m needling into his lower back.  JUST KIDDING.  –__–;;

photo courtesy of Frannie's FB page. He meant to post a picture of a Valentine's Day card.

Aside from the fact that this valentine was solicited by yours truly, HE ACTUALLY READS THIS BLOG EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE.  You probably can’t tell because he never comments, but he does!  He really does!

P.P.P.S. Who else is THIIIIIS excited that Santigold’s dropping her new album?? (Master of My Make-Believe <-- kick arse title, btw!) Piracy be damned, I might actually buy it. FULL PRICE! <-- which is a big deal if you're Asian. ::inscrutable eyes::

I just luff her. The thing is, you COULD intellectualize her music, it’s so good, but then again, it’s SO GOOD, you really don’t need to. All y’all’s got to do is kick back and ENJOY it. Or cut a rug widdit. Which is the best kinda music there is, ain’t it?

::raises a glass::

Here’s to you, Ms. Santi. Here’s to you, Ms. Gold.
