Move Over Birthers

Japanese food may confound most Americans with it’s emphasis on raw fish and dried seaweed but not nearly as confounding as birthers. We promise there’s nothing fishy about Pocky chocolate covered pretzels and a variety of other free colorful snacks served up for two hours starting at 2pm at this award-winning Mecca of graphic novels, action figures and all things nerdy and fun.

For the First Time On Any Stage (Left or Otherwise)

For the First Time On Any Stage (Left or Otherwise)… Although I’ll never catch up to Stageleft in the grandfathering department, I made my first.

Tucked inside the rather quiet exterior of the Westin Hotel, Mango Gang Chef Norman Van Aken and his son Justin are working the huge exhibition kitchen crafting a wild hodge podge of globally inspired plates from tuna tartare, Vietnamese beef and noodle soup to a trio of pork preparations and good old Southern fried chicken. Fasten your seatbelts and give it a whirl tonight.
