Sculpt Vegetables, Save The World, And Help Kidneys

Thursday, May 20: The ABC Island Horror show Lost, loved for some reason by our very own Jim Newell [I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS, OKAY? -- Ed.], is ending its long run this Sunday. Tear. Tear. This is devastating news for Jim and others who like holograms, aliens, plane crashes, and fighting polar bears. ANYWAY, it turns out that the Washington Post has Lost bloggers, and said bloggers are hosting a happy hour tomorrow night from 6-8PM at The Reef in Adams Morgan for all those who feel a need to mourn the end of this strange, strange teevee show.

  • Friday, May 21: Eating piles of food in order to give food to others is how Washingtonians are leading the fight against hunger in DC. Hence the "Taste of 12" event happening this Friday at the Verizon Center. The event features food from Acadiana, Jaleo, Matchbox, Zaytinya and other local, popular restaurants, and for $12 you can enjoy food from up to six of the participating restaurants. Proceeds from the event benefit the Capital Area Food Bank. [Taste of 12]
  • Saturday, May 22: Like chili and rock music? Sick of giving money to cancer? Great, because this Saturday you can eat all the chili you want and listen to rock bands including Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, and Tears of Mars at DC101’s 31st Annual Chili Cook-Off, and the proceeds from ticket sales benefit the National Kidney Foundation.

  • Saturday, May 22: We are slightly baffled that a festival celebrating Asian culture is called “Fiesta Asia," but instead of dwelling on this, we’ll concentrate on the fact that the festival includes Bollywood dancing, belly dancing, and vegetable sculpting, which sounds like something only the most prized of congressmen would engage in, but whatever. [Fiesta Asia Street Fair]
  • Sunday, May 23: Don’t forget that today you can do DC proud by going to the SoundBites benefit concert at the 9:30 Club. The event includes samples of food from more than a dozen DC restaurants, as well as the musical stylings of Will Eastman, U.S. Royalty and, our personal favorite, Beautiful Swimmers. Proceeds benefit DC Central Kitchen’s anti-hunger programs. [SoundBites]

'Miga and Carlos' by Wonkette Operative 'Chica'

It's Father's Day, which means it's time for Yr Dok Zoom and his son to go to brunch and check out the downtown Boise Father's Day Car Show so we can ooh and ah over the very same Corvettes 'n' Mustangs 'n' lovingly-restored classic cars that are there every year, and I will probably once again point at the '68 Beetle converted to run on electricity and say, "Oh look, a Voltswagen!" Traditions matter. (Kid Zoom is 22, so I may also/instead meet him for cocktails later like grown up human people.)

Don't worry about any deep thoughts on the Meaning of Fatherhood here -- we're just going to enjoy the goofy side of dadding, which as far as I'm concerned is the best thing I've done with my time. Especially since my role model for parenting was the unnamed Dad from "Calvin and Hobbes."

As any fool knows, ice rises to the top of liquids because it's cold, and just wants to be closer to the sun so it can warm up. It's all in the book you get when you become a father.
