I Feel Like Chicken Tonight

May 13, 2012

in bar, film festivals, fruit, restaurant

You know how athletes carb load before a race? What worked for my festival marathon yesterday was a ton of meat, followed by ginormous amounts of fruit. I still can’t believe I made it all the way til 3:30 in the morning.

Look at the size of that Fuji!!! I packed it in my purse while fueling up at home…

…missed the “Yes We’re Open” red carpet but did manage to snap my own photos with the poster.

Finally got a chance to hang out with Goh while waiting outside for the movie to finish (photo credit to Joz!)

Another Q&A…

…moderated by my buddy Phil (a.k.a Angry Asian Man)…

…more pictures…

…and then, somehow it was midnight! There was an official after party but we got word it was packed, and I was honestly too tired to stand/smile/schmooze. Headed over to The Prince instead to meet up with Daniel, Elaine, Tony, and some other peeps…

…much more intimate setting, smack in the heart of Koreatown…

…reminded us of The Regal Beagle!

The Prince is known for their fried chicken. It comes with cabbage, a spicy sauce, jalapeños, salt…

…pickled radish, and rice wrapper…

I made a little burrito.

The Prince sure knows how to fry a bird!

We also feasted on fruit. Ah….what a platter!

Doubles for me.

It’s kinda strange for me eating melon all cut up now. I’m about to spoon off that other cantaloupe half now, since I want to avoid Mother’s Day brunch crowds.

Speaking of which…

…sadly, my mama’s on the other side of the country.

Got a few festival films to attend later today, including another Q&A for “Daylight Savings” at 9:15pm. Thank you so much to everyone who came out last night to all the screenings – it was a really special evening.

My love for Daniel Dae Kim literally doubled the other day when I realized he’s a Philly guy and he threw out the first pitch for a Phillies game. I’m sure you and Abe can appreciate that. :)

ha! the second we sat down at “the prince” that was the first thing abe wanted to talk about!

mmmm, you make me want to eat melon halves by the spoonful for breakfast! they never look as delicious as yours do when I see them in the store… maybe when the weather is nicer. :-)

I so love that colorful dress, Lynn! Strangely enough, I also had a week filled with lots of meat and fruit, very little carbs, and found that I’ve had a ton of energy …

Congratulations on all your success! : )
