My weekend is just beginning, suckers!! And today was pretty good. Leaving the house is good. Food is good.
salad for lunch: spinach, avocado, carrot, red cabbage, baked tofu with olive oil and ACV
Casual Dots are riot grrrl/math rock? with members from Slant 6/Quix*o*tic and Bikini Kill; Oldest are kinda metal-y: Mick Barr (an incredible guitarist) and Brooks Headley (old school DC punk, played in Born Against and United Order of Armageddon - now he is pastry chef at fancy Del Posto!) It was SUCH a good show. Really awesome energy.
Made a quick, simple smoothie: spinach, banana, coffee flavored protein powder, and almond milk....
and a piece of GF toast with peanut butter and apricot jam
Then I headed into the city for research and fun... The research part was going through the ABC No Rio zine library. ABC No Rio is a "collectively-run center for art and activism" and a "venue for oppositional culture" that's been on the Lower East Side since 1980. They have a silkscreening studio and darkroom as well as the zine library, and all-ages punk matinees on weekends. It's one of the raddest places in the city. Fun mural too.
As you can see, it snowed all day, but other stops in the city included Babeland, Bluestockings, a bar, and Economy Candy (I didn't buy any candy, if you can believe it.)
When I got home, I made spaghetti and topped it with sauteed onions, garlic, tempeh, and collards. And sauce.
A good day. I hope to get out and about tomorrow too...but now to read and work on a new zine.
