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.
Our friends from The Glass Bandits Theatre Company want to get you stuffed and liquored up for a good cause. This Saturday, July 31st at the Loading Dock $10 bucks will get you all the booze you need from 6pm-11pm. The guys are raising money for the Fringe Festival debut of their latest work, The Boogyman Thumbs A-1-A.
Early on in the NachosNY days, we relied on the suggestions list, but never made it to suggestion #4, 5 Burro in Forest Hills. We’re not borough-ist, we just have a lot of local ground to cover before we get up there. Anyway, in June, the 5 Burro crew opened a second location in the Red Hook / Riverfront area. Jake, our gardening genius friend(just wait till you see the adorable nacho garden in its infancy next week) told me how good it was and he takes his food seriously. I made a mental note and when they appeared on Groupon this week, I had to do it.
Stranded in and LA airport, our Guactcular runner-up Chris was stuck could not bring his guacamole to the masses aboard the Jewel for Guac Rock. Instead, he emailed one of his recipes to help get our creative juices going. His secret ingredient: ginger, really got the night kicked off right.
It sure has been a guactasmic week, hasn’t it, NachosNY devotees, hangers on & such? Were you on the Guac Rock boat on Monday night, cruising around the harbor drinking beers, eating guac & listening to live, independent rock music? Oh man…I was and let me tell you, for the most part, you who joined me were an ATTRACTIVE group of guac lovers. I would’ve gladly made out with many of you.
