Fusion of Flavors

In just five days, the JUKEBOX STORIES event at The Ghetto Gourmet on June 2 in San Francisco has sold out. I'm not sure if it's mostly JUKEBOX fans or if it's the hippies that normally go to The Ghetto Gourmet, but I don't care. If my collaborator, Brandon Patton, and I can mesmerize a room full of drunks in an Irish pub in Boston (by far our most successful show during our East Coast tour), then we can win over a bunch of hippies. I mean, my politics lean even more left than hippies, so it should come as no surprise.

By the way, have you ever had hippie sex? I wanna hear about it!

For those of you out of the cultural loop, The Ghetto Gourmet is a renegade underground supper club in which a bunch of strangers gather in a secret location and eat food cooked by a gourmet chef. These nutjobs, who got their start in the San Francisco Bay Area, have gained national prominence, and are now doing events all over the country.

Since our June 3rd event is a unique fusion of JUKEBOX STORIES (a theater piece unique unto itself) and The Ghetto Gourmet (an event that proudly stands on its own), our chef will be serving up "Asian fusion" cuisine—a theme I am rather fond of since I am the voice of Asian America. It must be true—that's what it says on my business card.

For those of you who didn't get a chance to snap up Ghetto Gourmet tickets, JUKEBOX STORIES will be performed in a comedy club in San Francisco on June 1 for a bargain—just ten bucks at The Clubhouse downtown. Tickets are available here and going fast.
