Yeah, check it out. A half kilo of pure, unadulterated Greek Gold, a.k.a. roasted lamb. None of that cut, oven-baked stuff you’ll find at other Greek Fests. This is the real deal: savory, spit-roasted, and served with absolutely nothing. Want sides? They’re extra!
In addition to my meaterific hit, Akemi scored a somewhat dry chicken souvlaki. And to top things off, perhaps the most cloyingly sweet dessert in existence:

The only true Greek Fest in Vancouver continues through Sunday, July 7th: http://vancouvergreeksummerfest.com/
I’ve had a bunch of people inquiring about my plans for this year’s Comicon. Alas, sadly, I don’t have any. Akemi and I had a fantastic time last year, at the con itself but mainly out on the streets with the crazy costumed people (Akemi felt right at home). My aim was to make another appearance this year in support of Dark Matter, but the planned t.v. series has been in a holding pattern for months. All the pieces are in place and all the partners want the show – only one partner wants the show for “later”, thus putting a pin in production plans and the kibosh on my San Diego aspirations.
Ah, well. There’s always next year.
Hey, have you voted yet? We’re giving our resident film critic, Cookie Monster, a break from sitting through crappy superhero movies – in favor of crappy other movies. We’ve narrowed down the nominations to…
Cast your ballots. The polling stations close midnight, Monday July 8th!
So, how are your 4th of July celebrations coming along? How are you commemorating the day? In tribute to our American friends, I picked up a bottle of Kentucky bourbon this afternoon and am sitting on on the back porch with the dogs, enjoying a glass of 12 year old W. L. Weller as I write this blog entry.
Travel day tomorrow. Akemi and I are L.A.-bound for Golden Boy Marty G.’s birthday bash – and a few memorable meals. Akemi is especially looking forward to checking out Top Chef finalist Stefan Richter’s restaurant. That and the shopping.
