Boston’s a must have, Mr. Barley’s burgers at Harvard Sq.
their famous onion rings are made to order. yum yum yum.
Since I went their for a brunch, I got a breakfast…sort of. I’m so hungry posting this.
Futura’s 360 pointman piece at cncpts store. I wouldn’t mind bring this home…
always impressive James Hook’s lobster roll. soooooo chunky!
a beautiful day at ICA.
ICA usually have the arts that are kind of out there…but it’s a cool building to visit.
my cousins. The taller you are, the older you are…
turns out, ICA’s water bar has amazing food!!! yum yum yum.
then I arrived to NYC just in time for the sunset.
do you think you’ve been to weird parties? well think again, this party I went was happening at the 2nd floor of new york china town dim sum restaurant. The name of 88 Palace. WTF right? I couldn’t believe it in the beginning but it was for real.
DJ Ayres and his crew runs the night at this place. So ghetto but strangely very fitting. the people who are crazy enough to come to dance at dim sum restaurants are turns out to be the hardcore clubbers, not one of those let’s get drunk people. So it made sense to have a party here…except it smelled like dim sum the whole time!!!
two turntables, two cdjs, traktor, and serato…like every equipment possible?
and the Martin Brothers!!! First time seeing two brothers together. I just never knew I would see them at a dim sum restaurant.
Christian and Justin, they were having so much fun together playing back to back. I kind of wish my brother would start djing. brother are you reading this?
of course clay the guetta was with me and oleg the Russian prince was also in town. we all couldn’t believe we were partying at a dim sum joint.
Chinatown rave with the martin bros!!! it was definitely worth it.
this Cuban sandwich from Cafe Havana saved my life from a massive hang over from the Martin Brothers. The taste was mind blowing! now I’m drooling.
Family reunion-ing with my cousin/recovering.
This kidrobot display is all I want…and all I need…
The high line park in Summer is a must place to visit in NYC! so pretty up there.
then I came back Boston to catch the fireworks. I really was all over the place this weekend. now I’m tired. Happy 4th.
I got a chance to visit Pittsburgh for the first time so I studied all the spots that Shepard Fairey did during his exhibition at the Andy Warhol Museum.
This mural was conveniently right next to the Andy Warhol Museum.
Despite its street level location, it was in a perfect condition.
And this one was even protected with fences around it. that’s legit.
Now at the Andy Warhol Museum.
Andy Warhol’s Silver Clouds were actually walkable installation. Kids were going nuts in this room. So was I. Super cool.
This was my favorite room at the museum. Gigantic Andy’s camourflage piece and Keith Haring’s elephant piece. it was my first time seeing Keith Haring’s work.
Then off to another obey spot at Double Wide Grill on E. Carson St. No tags and no rips…people at Pitts are nice.
Ruggers Pub using Shepard as their trash can decoration. classy.
E. Carson and 14th St. Amazingly well kept.
and this one is my favorite. a beautiful combination of detailed print and red bricks, amazing.
and when you are in Pittsburgh, you gotta try Primanti Bros, according to Adam.
Primanti Bros were featured on MvF Pittsburgh episode. That’s actually why I went.
OMG. ham, coleslaw, tomato, fried egg, and fries all in one sandwich, hard not to like.
Andy Warhol Self-portrait.
at the museum, they had a workshop corner for kids where kids can draw on Andy’s face, and since my trip to Pitts was heavily based on Obey, I drew the giant face. Came out pretty nice. haha.
I even scored the left over t-shirt from Shepard’s show. Turns out traveling based on Obey and Man Vs. Food is very entertaining. A little geeky side of me but no offense, there weren’t much to do in Pitts…
