The Wire + Momofuku = Awesome

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Have plans for Thursday night?


You can break ’em. Dave Simon and David Chang are speaking at the Nourse Theater.

Who are these people?

David Chang is the founder of Momofuku and other restaurants that defy conventional adjectives like awesome and delicious. Their food is incredible. But their cookbooks are even better, filled with the stories behind the dishes and recipes you never thought you could find.

David Simon is the creator of the Wire. For those who have seen it, I don’t need to say anything else. For those who haven’t, go watch it now.

The host Michael Krasny has been an English professor since 1970 and hosting radio forums and programs like this for more than 20 years. In short, he’s really, really good at talking to people in front of other people.

The event is part of a larger and incredibly awesome conversation series from City Arts & Lectures. Tickets are only $17, which is kind of a steal for this kind of event.

But if you don’t want to drop $17 on a ticket to hear it live, they rebroadcast them on KQED for FREE on Sundays at 1 pm, Tuesday evenings at 8 pm, and Wednesday mornings at 2 am. with Linda Hunt hosting (What? You don’t know who Linda Hunt is?).
