Friends: If you are reading the new issue, you will see that there is a great deal of street sausage in it. But we know that there is a wonderment of meat on the street that’s never made it near our pie holes. So there is a call in this issue to report such omissions to sausage boss @ lky.ph. Matt Cohn, a worldly and dutiful reader, sent in this photo and note about a FRENCH FRY-ENCASED HOT DOG:
Dear Sausage Boss,
The light tap-tap of poppy seeds falling from my hot dog bun onto the paper wrapper below and the ketchup dispenser’s flatulence are the soundtrack to an indelible, edible pastime. There I was, naively eating a hot dog and fries separately, taking the time to dip each fry into a small paper thimble.
The “Kamja (potato) Dog” is a practical, portable homage to the American classic, and it raised some questions. Why had I wasted all that time and effort eating them separately? Does gravity work differently in Seoul? Sadly, I did not sample the Kamja Dog, so I can only infer that encased meat was encased in the fries.

Are you in Philadelphia? If so, you should go to this. (via wooderylove) I’m using the whole “Ham Sandwiches at Hoagie Fest” angle to excuse posting it on this here food blog, but really it’s because I think Spacin’ and all this Siltbreezey philly shit sounds great.
Members of Watery Love, Beaver Mafia, Birds of Maya, Ham Sandwiches, Spacin’, and Mists of Time. Loud destructo rock. Appearing at the happiest place in Philly, the Philadelphia Record Exchange (1524 Frankford Ave) next Saturday 3-8. The show is free, the records cost money. BYOB.

Better than a Golden Ticket:
I made the wrappers for five chocolate bars. The chocolate is by Mary & Matt’s Chocolate Editions (have you ever had one of their bars they are really good!) and the bars will be available this weekend (March 7-10th, 2014) at a Book/Shop pop up in CHCM on Bond Street. The paintings are free but the chocolate bars are $100 each.

Magazines sometimes have parties when they make a new issue. Why shouldn’t we? Why shouldn’t we have one in Los Angeles and escape from the frozen urinal that is New York City?
That was the thinking that landed us at the POT Lobby Bar in the newly-opened The Line Hotel in LA Koreatown last week . Kogi did tacos. Dorien Garry and Sun Araw played records. (I really liked how Dorie worked Future Games into her set!) Roy Choi and his pastry chef Marian Mar sprung a Chang-as-Hello- Kitty cake on us.
Most of the post party talk was about the superiority of Los Angeles and our collective desire to move there. Definitely more and bigger Lucky Peach LA parties on the way.
