# 59 Today's picture Garlic Man

This afternoon I came across this man chopping large cloves of garlic in a plastic box in front of a restaurant behind Shanghai Garden. The garlic was about eight inches deep and he was deftly wielding two large Chinese cleavers, preparing finely chopped and minced garlic for the restaurant's evening session. That he was sitting outside on the curb doing this, chatting with the kitchen staff who were taking a break and catching up on their smokes, seemed perfectly natural.

Ze Puppies (Burton Booz, Charles Dupont, Romain Rabany and new member bass player Harley Fagan Jr) will be playing this Friday (April 24) at the Bookworm, 8.30 pm. Please: friends, family and friendly strangers, come and listen and give them encouragement. They have a few new rocking songs in their repertoire and if all goes well they will play again on May 12th at the earthquake benefit. Better come early if you want to sit down, see you there!
