I got so caught up in my waitressing nostalgia that I forgot the true point of my writings - the Made Out Of Babies album is out and it is sooo amazing! Julie has the best voice and the music is like metal with a sense of fun. But I suck at describing music so go listen to them and buy their album.
My second point was that I got a vegan plate at Beso (5th ave off Union Street in Park Slope) and it was really delicious. It's not something that's on the menu but ask for it and they'll make you something - mine had sauteed spinach, black beans, this cool ball of rice, guac, mango salsa and perfect plantains.
