In order to get away from a big event crowd, Nicole and I had been planning today’s outing to Fulton all week, primarily to see Black Panther again (even better seen twice, folks) but also to explore local cuisine. A friend put us on to what turned out to be a very satisfying restaurant, The Fulton Café.
In anticipation of a good meal…I dorked out, preparing a massive playlist of Cuban music favorites for the 70-minute round-trip drive. Overkill: it is what I am. So, let the overflow, perhaps, serve you. Here was the lineup:
As for The Fulton Café, I had an amazing medianoche sandwich and a café con leche. We shall return. There was no Cuban music playing there, though. In other music news, upon my second experience with Black Panther, I felt some interest growing in the score (I’m still merely whelmed by Mr. Lamar’s curated comp). In other food news, I discovered Jalapeño Fritos at a Kingdom City convenience store.
Joe King Carrasco and the Crowns: Danceteria Deluxe–I will always love Joe and this band, and this rough and rowdy album livened up our morning.
Mount Eerie: A Crow Looked at Me–This sublimely titled and heartbreaking meditation on freshly-suffered loss arrived on our doorstep in the afternoon and was not placed on the turntable. It should only be played after careful consideration and in a state of relative emotional stability–it is a magnificent, unique, painful, and disturbing creation.
