Zachary Williams

Last Thursday on Allen Street I saw a small crowd outside the Rockwood Music Hall which hosts a half dozen acts every night, no cover, no minimum. Through the glass streetwall I can see Zachary Williams and his tight band up on stage sounding really good. In two weeks Williams will travel with Ben Folds through the South, and this night he rocked. I recorded my useless attempt to get in.

Chile Cookoff

When Mrs Tourist and I decided to be a tourist somewhere other than New York City, we drove to Old Saybrook, Connecticut and accidentally stumbled into the 2010 Chile-Fest. We got to sample ten of the 31 chiles and I took this photo of our favorite booth and favorite chef who made our most favorite chile. It turned out to be everybody's favorite, too -- he took the top prize. I'll have my audio posted in a day or two.
