Andrew WK is a hero of mine. I’ve loved him since I first heard “Party Hard” and scored touchdowns on Madden to “She Is Beautiful.” In July, just using Twitter, I reached out to Andrew WK that we would love to work with him on a project. He literally got in touch almost immediately. We will talk more about the project in the future, but in the meantime, we were able to interview him all about life and OF COURSE, Nachos.
Guac Rock is only a week away! Tickets are still available for this epic event. Imagine. 3 hours on a boat, unlimited guacamole, an hour of free tequila and three awesome bands. One of those bands, American Darlings were kind enough to answer a few nacho goodness questions.
Maybe you heard of him on Grub Street this past week or maybe you went to Quiz Rock with a Side of Guac at the Knitting Factory but Richard Sloven is taking New York City by storm, one order of guac at a time. With Gorilla Guac, Richard prepares guacamole made-to-order in various locations including the Guac Rock Boat Cruise on July 18th. Tickets are still available. So let’s peak into the mind of a west coast guacamole enthusiast, shall we?
Cheese is in the top 5 important things when it comes to nachos. So you can guess why we’re so insanely excited about the Cheesemonger Invitational on Friday July 8 in Long Island City. Our excitement lead us to getting a chance to talk to Tia Keenan. Tia Keenan is a genius fromager and culinary consultant.
Obviously, we love people with nacho tattoos. We’ll interview any nacho tattoo-ed person that we find. Luckily, via our Facebook page, A.D. Crawford reached out to us saying he should be the voice of Nachos NY. Wondering why there’s no image, well that’s a funny story.
Yesterday, we posted the Album Nachos that is pretty much being loved. It was inspired by Album Tacos, so we reached out to them to talk about the idea and found out they’re none other than The Hood Internet, mashup geniuses.
Upon seeing that photo, you might wonder where I am. Well, you see, I was asked to join WFMU’s Seven Second Delay’s attempt to create the URDB record for the most interviews in an hour. It’s important to mention here, that Nachos NY are veterans of URDB; we have the record for the Most People Eating Guacamole On A Boat.
Writing about nachos is an intensely interesting, weird and rewarding experience. I get to eat a lot of my favorite food, I get to meet a lot of awesome people who love nachos, and sometimes I get great emails. Phil, read our other avocado tattoo, Shelly, and left word that he too had an avocado on his person. His tattoo is AWESOME, so, naturally, we asked some questions.
With this Friday’s Nacho House NYC coming so fast, we rushed to the phones to talk to idea originators and amazing band, Hollerado. They put on Nacho Houses on the map at SXSW and NXNE. So we talked to them a little about music and a lot about our common interest, chos. Come see us all this Friday at Cake Shop.
When we’re not reviewing nachos all over the place or throwing events that garner URDB records, we like to talk to bands. We’ve been tweeting with Shark? for sometime and had questions to ask them.
Now a profile on a Guacatular contestant, a taco enthusiast, and a lover of Mexican cuisine: Forrest Cole. Forrest not only entered the Guactacular with his creation, he also served the masses as part of Choncho’s Tacos. Now his restaurant, The Loading Dock, will host Gypsies, Tramps, and Tacos this Saturday. This west coast transplanted has a few things to say about east coast Mexican, the Brooklyn Flea, and of course, guacamole.
