Waterboy last night was fantastic, as usual. I highly recommend the bollito misto that they have on the menu right now. It had a big chunk of cotechino sausage in it, which is this soft Italian sausage that has nutmeg in it. And the broth the whole dish was swimming in was SO TASTY. We finished off the meal with some fine aged port. However, I heard my second story in just a few weeks of someone puking after eating there. I can only speculate that it's the richness of the food coupled with a good amount of wine that upsets some people's stomachs. The fact that one person had eaten lamb tartare makes it not too surprising. Raw lamb sounds really gross to me, but I can think of a certain Armenian who would probably be stoked on it.
I read the Daisy Spot article in A & K today. It was pretty good. A bit cutesy. I'm happy that they're finally releasing a record. They're having their record release show at Old Ironsides this friday. I'll most likely go. The only weird thing about the cover story is that they used a primitive chalk drawing of Tatiana and Mike for the cover. As a friend said (OK, I'll name drop him, it was Anton Barbeau) "you take the most photogenic band in Sacramento and use a crappy drawing of them for the cover?". See above for evidence.
