Now, for the dumbest question. This woman stands up and in this sickeningly sweet little prissy voice asks, "Anthony, I love your show. Would you please tell this wonderful audience here about your first time eating an oyster?" Wha-what?! I seriously did a slow-mo turn to see this lady. The reason being that in his first book, the one that made him famous, mind you, he explained in great detail his first experience eating an oyster. It was a three or four page long of description. I was like, lady, seriously? Granted, I own the new book but haven't read it yet, but still, if you're going to spend all the money to see the show and want to ask him questions, at least read the one that made him famous. Thankfully, Bourdain, in his snarky manner said "Well I had it at my neighbor's house as a kid. I described it much more eloquently and with detail in my book. Sorry, I don't want to shirk your question, but...Yes, you there." Ah, it was great. Stupid lady.
On Saturday Nick and I took Bart into the City and went to go visit the local food truck from Food Network's The Great Food Truck Race. Spencer on the Go was really close to being a finalist but got beaten out by $37 in the second to last round. We were rooting for them since they're local. Anyway, so we decided head out there to check them out. The food was sooo good and they were really friendly. I had two escargot lollipops, basically escargot in puff pastry speared with a skewer, and a lamb cheek sandwich. Nick had an escargot lollipop, foie gras, and a slider. The total came out to be $50, but it was well worth it. My dad said "$50 for a roach coach?!?!" but it was worth the Bart ride and walk. ...And it's called a Food Truck, Baba. After we ate at their little stand, we got to talk to Chef Laurent for a little bit before we headed on our merry way. We stopped at this little pub that I had been to before called The Chieftain. After watching the Giants lose, Arizona squash Iowa, and Stanford terrorize Wake Forest, I had to drown my sorrows in some beer. Cal is up against a lot this year. After watching those games, I've started to prepare myself for a tough football season. I just hope they can pull through without to much image damage. Eeek.
