when you’re in the hood of billyburg, you feel like you need to have a guitar or an art brush cuz it is the place for the arts. but it’s easily forgivable if you appreciate the arts …which i do! yesterday, i went to check out my girl perform with her band, Vanguard Villains at matchless. the corner bar, formerly an auto shop, now shaped into a food serving bar with a side room for jammin’ performers and their groupies. the Vanguard Villains were awesome! the trio, consisting of a vocalist/guitarist, drummer and bass guitarist, rocked to their hearts’ content.
afterwards, m & i stayed at the bar for some grub. wasn’t expecting much. just some fun, greasy bar food. but the vocalist gave a plug for their mac and cheese, saying it probably-has-some-dope-in-it is awesome! i couldn’t resist. i had a side of mac and cheese with buffalo wings. i forgot about the wings. and i don’t easily forget wings. the mac and cheese was THAT good. warm small plate with cheesey, cheesey cheese covered maccaroni with a top crust — not burnt cheese crust (which i don’t care for) — but light layer of breadcrumb kind of crust. YUM!!! my only regret was that i didn’t get a full order.
i’ll be back to support the arts in williamburg .. and for another serving of matchless mac and cheese!
