I had never been to the 626 Night Market before. I just heard about it from time to time but never really made an effort to care. It was only until I heard that MC Jin was going to perform that I realized it would be the perfect place for me to check out the foods and vendors and also watch Jin perform. It was back in 2005 when I first saw Jin perform (my first rap concert if you will) and he was dope. But as I got to follow his career, gotten to know him, meet him and just see him grow, I like where he’s headed to now.
When I got to the market, I was overwhelmed by the vendors and shops. They had a lot of cool artwork. I almost bought some stuff but maintained to my spending to food.
Stinky tofu? Yes! I got it! Also, check out this.
I discovered Canter’s a couple years ago after I had just moved to LA. I found a link to the best burger in LA and I went to the Golden State to have the burger. It was that good. But I saw across the street that there was this Jewish restaurant called Canter’s Deli. I went after my meal and saw they sold black & white cookies. I love those cookies. I ate them all the time when I lived in New York.
I’ve eaten at Canter’s a few times since. They serve Jewish food along with other classic foods like panini sandwiches, meatloaf, etc. I like it there. It’s a 24/7 joint and it satisfies my needs. Is it a great place? It’s average
But to deliver me food late at night, I can dig it. Now that the president has also eaten here, I can lay my lame claim to fame that I am famous too!
I’ve eaten at Chipotle twice ever in my life. I felt regret both times after eating there. I am not a fan of them. But I don’t hate them.
On Twitter today, they’ve now confused me even more.

It was a great trip.
I am so exhausted and I don’t think I can properly recap my trip. If you want details on it, you can check my photos here and my recaps here.
But here are some thoughts as a first-timer.
- The Phoenix area has great food. I ate real well and I was able to get a taste of the culture of the area. Fantastic eats everywhere
- Phoenix Municipal isn’t a really pretty park. Bleacher benches and not much ambiance makes it an OK park. But hey, the A’s are used to that, right?
- Camelback Ranch is way nicer and fits more of the Dodgers/White Sox kind of atmosphere.
- Watching games with players that I am not familiar with is tough, but it’s part of the Spring Training way.
- Great baseball atmosphere. Great people too. It’s like a little baseball fun community. And. there are lots of pretty people here.
- Everything is so close and I love it. I think I might do this again next year.

What’s this? Yes, that’s me and my friend Chris doing the Bernie when he came to visit me last weekend. It was an idea that came up last month and today we finally put it into action.
But how did this all come to be? Let me take you down my weekend adventure in which I also ate a lot of good food and went to Anaheim to represent the A’s.
I will be returning to the Bay Area this weekend because I miss home. But it won’t be a long stay and I will try to get as much done in that time. I’ll be in the East Bay the entire time and I wish I could see everyone. But since I know that won’t happen, I’ll just do the best I can.
If anyone wants to come by say hi, I’ll be around various places. Here’s my itinerary of my weekend.
