Some Argentinian Graffiti

My dahlink friend Michelle went to Argentina and was kind enough to capture some graffiti to share...

Love the bear that was just shot.

Nico lives in Argentina...right next to some creepy, dead doll heads and Mr. T.

Happy bear says "Hello! I have a freakishly small body!"

My favorite. Maybe because I am so crabby.

More to come. Michelle took some really nice bathroom shots. Anyone who is obsessed with bathroom art is obviously a friend of mine.

I Wouldn't Recommend Sitting Still in Oakland For Too Long

I'm not a big fan of taggers--prefer images to ego tripping--but I had to take a picture of this one. Something about the stripes on that couch and the angle that it was propped that caught my fancy.

Another Cupcake

This cupcake appeared next to Lake Merritt. Love to see it reappear.


p.s. Someone asked if I knew of any others. I have no clue beyond these two.

Soup as Dessert

I went to Nobu 57 last week while in NYC for work. Of course it was amazing--especially the miso cod, which is a no-brainer.

Though I was pretty much full, I looked at the dessert menu to see if there were anything unique that I couldn't get anywhere else. And there it was--White Peach and Jasmine Soup. It sounded like it would be the best thing ever or utter gross. It was the former. The title doesn't give you the essence of the presentation. First, there was a "Nobu beer" egg on a nest of peanut crumble cubes. Then the waiter poured the white peach and jasmine cold soup over the nest.
