So yesterday — a gorgeously summerish January afternoon in the South Bay of L.A. — we decided to rendezvous in Hermosa with our brother Naylor, just back from a month in Thailand and the Nam. Before that, we cracked a bottle from Hector’s fridge stash called Otokoyama. I’m not the biggest sake fan in the world, but this stuff was perfect on an empty stomach. I think it’s the rice or something. Like a little chilled brunchy carbosnack with a buzz. Hai!
Although I’ve never seen a drop of the show, I’m pretty sure you kids know Hector. He’s the guy that took home the gold on American Idol that one year.
