Here's some pictures I took when I went to do readings in Cali last month. As you can see, it aint hard to tell why it's called the Best Coast.

Hippie Hill San Francisco. A crackhead wanted to give me his pipe. I said no thanks. Then I went barhopping on Haight Street with two random people.

Pettibon's Bungalow. I stayed in the other bedroom.

UC Berkeley. A nice little spot tucked away.

Gorgeous view from Pettibon's sun deck. I dug LA a lot, I got so much work done and caught a tan at the same time.

Killadelphia First Friday and Notes on Pork Roll/ Taylor Ham

The Eastern Seaboard Showcase Part 1 went down on Friday, to a good-sized crowd at the Philadelphia Center for the Book pop-up store on South Street and S. 6th. I read with the talented Sarah Heady, Angel Hogan, Hailey Higdon, Matt Zingg and Michael Lala, the only fiction writer of the bunch. The guys and I stayed with photographer/poet Brandon Lake in South Philly and celebrated with style and class as per usual.
Besides Tattooed Mom's, which Mike and I drink at everytime we're in Society Hill, we ate at South Philly's best diner the Melrose Diner. The waitresses here are the best. Also, I ate this:

Definitely my favorite breakfast food ever, only available in the Philadelphia area and all of New Jersey. This is Philly/South Jersey's brand.

This is the North Jersey (and maybe a few NYC locations as I haven't found) brand, called "Taylor Ham". The difference between the two brands is in amount of spice, but really in nomenclature and will forever split the state. That and the whole difference in population and urban planning.
