Mr. Gaines from A Different World!
So I was at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe tonight for a benefit for the Darfur Rehabilitation Project. The highlight of the evening was seeing Lou Meyers (Mr. Gaines from A Different World) perform. He played piano, sang and danced and it was awesome. After his performance my friend Rachel and I chatted with him for a bit. Not really having much to say, I told him I was doing a food blog and asked what his favorite foods were. (I was wondering if his diet was perhaps influenced by co-star Lisa Bonet). He answered pinto beans but then went on to talk about fried fish and chicken. I asked him if he liked any vegetarian foods. He said he used to have a wife that was vegetarian (or maybe it was that he has a wife that used to be vegetarian) and she would make all sorts of fake meats out of soybeans. He likes vegetarian food, but it has to have taste. Well, duh! We gotta send him the blogroll for VeganMoFo. It’s a Different World from where he’s coming from.
