Fresh Off The Boat With Eddie Huang: the Bay Area episode with Filipinos and burritos. Eddie will be in Seattle tomorrow (February 5). Catch him and I at Town Hall talking about his new book Fresh Off The Boat and food, race, sports, rap and other real shit.

Eddie Huang in conversation with Geo: ‘Fresh Off the Boat’

Tuesday, February 5, 2013, 7:30 – 9:00pm Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street. $5.

One of the food world’s brightest and most provocative young stars (“the new Anthony Bourdain,” declared the New York Post), outspoken chef Eddie Huang is the 30-year-old proprietor of the Taiwanese hot spot Baohaus and host of the Vice series Fresh Off the Boat. But before he created the perfect home for himself in New York City, Huang burned his way through American culture, defying every “model minority” stereotype along the way as he looked for a place to call his own. In his memoir Fresh Off the Boat (and at Town Hall, in conversation with Blue Scholars’ similarly outspoken vocalist Geo), Huang shares stories of assimilation and alienation; his misadventures as an unlikely lawyer and stand-up comic; and how he finally threw everything he loved into his own restaurant, bringing together a legacy stretching back to China—and the shards of global culture he’d melded into his own identity. Presented by Town Hall as part of its Arts & Culture series, with University Book Store.

Advance tickets are $5 at www.townhallseattle.org or 888/377-4510 and at the door beginning at 6:30 pm. Town Hall members receive priority seating. Downstairs at Town Hall; enter on Seneca Street.

One of San Jose’s greatest, Dirtbag Dan (Counter Productive), made it out to the Philippines to grindtime battle one of Philippines’ most prominent emcees, Anygma (Flip Top & A.M.P.O.N.). As no surprise, both performed exceptionally, but by a unanimous decision, Anygma was declared the winner. Dirtbag Dan came with the wittyness and punchlines, as Anygma delivered more personal and genuine rounds. Either way, Dirtbag Dan made me proud to be from the 408, and Anygma makes me proud to be Filipino. :)

THIS WAS TOOOO SICK.
Anygma just had more substance in his rounds, man. Dirt’s punchlines just made me want to punch him in the face most of the time. Anygma included so much truth in his rounds, so not to sound biased or anything but to me it’s a clear winner. 1st round where Anygma brought up the rape case in Subic Bay, 2nd round where he brought up our nurses & used “Pacquiao’s english,” 3rd round where he brought up religion & ended it, all I can say is: DAAAYUMMM.

pilipinos are taking over in 2011. you’ve been warned.

BRRRRRRRRRRRRAT!!!!!
