Episode 8 of My Drunk Kitchen: Ice Cream, includes important tips, such as “Your mouth is just as good a tool as your hands.”

Hannah herself will be at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe next Wednesday, August 17 kicking off at 7 PM. I’ve got some important, awesome updates on the event:

  • We’ll be screening a brand-new, never-before-seen episode of My Drunk Kitchen!
  • Hannah, in addition to being a great drunk chef, knows her literature and curated a selection of books to sign. So if you’ve always wanted a copy of Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States signed by this veritable YouTube sensation, this is your night. Wine stains are up to you. Probably.
  • The cafe will be featuring MDK drink specials: Perfect Mimosas and a house-made white-wine sangria for the happy hour price of $5. We’ll also have plenty grilled cheese because it’s one of the best drunk foods out there.
  • The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Hannah and then we’ll all hang out and drink our drink specials and not even attempt to cook anything.

This is a free, public event, with limited seating on a first-come first-served basis and plenty of standing room.

After reading one of his short stories I ponied up and got his first novel. Are there any Hoeg fans out there?

This is what stands between me and my goal of having read everything Jennifer Egan has published. Maybe I am a fan girl.

You haven’t heard of that?

This question has shamed me and many others like me. Whether it was music, movies, or clothes I couldn’t understand. Maybe I had a sheltered youth, or maybe I was too desperate to know what cool was. But I’ll tell you what made my blood run cold in the hallway of my high school- someone asking “you haven’t heard of enter ultra cool band ?” You know the tone with which this question was asked. My pupils would dilate my palms would become balmy- I don’t need a pop quiz to know I am uncool.

It wasn’t until meeting my husband that I learned about indifference and other cool kit essentials. So when I was at a bookstore today and a group of employees was standing around shaming a younger employee for not know Culture Club or Boy George. His defense was,”I know every Spielberg film.” It’s ok dude your cool guru will come along someday, and he or she will delight in your knowledge of Spielberg.
