Nippon via New York

if you've been to one NYC street fair, you've been to them all:

smoothies, crepes, pashminas -- smoothies, mozzarepas, t-shirts-- smoothies, gyros, jewelry.

-- but for what they lack in variance, they more than make up for in value.

this particular street fair spanned 15 blocks along madison avenue; from 42nd to 57th, however, the japanese portion was confined to only one block -- 43rd street. i enjoyed a diverse sampling of yum yums including a sweet, gooey mozzarepa, a savory bowl of japanese curry, and a banging ground chicken yakitori. surprisingly enough, the most enjoyable treat of the day wasn’t food at all; it was a beverage – a sarsaparilla soda courtesy of Wild Bill’s Olde Fashion Soda Pop Co. Wild Bill set up a vintage style soda stand, offering several unconventional flavors such as sarsaparilla, birch beer, and “gatling gun” grape.

a great way to kill the afternoon
