Jesus fucking Christ! I can’t tell if that’s the most or the least clever article title I’ve ever come up with. Ok, actually the most clever article title I ever came up with was called Queer and Boning in Las Vegas (I’m credited at the end of the article) and was about the queer part of the AVN porn awards. But this one is clever…ish.

Anyways, this pop-up sounds great. As you can tell from the menu above, this Sunday’s Soviet Kitsch Pop-Up Dinner is gonna all have kinds of Russian and Ukrainian food stuffs. Chef Amanda Hall (who has cooked at Quince and Oliveto) is using some of her Ukrainian/Russian grandmother’s recipes to feed the hungry masses at Dear Mom. Plus to keep things thematic they are going to be playing Russian ballet and movies such as From Russia with Love and Doctor Zhivago. All we need is an appearance by Regina Spektor (her 3rd album is called Soviet Kitsch) and the entire theme will be a perfect circle.

While these days Russia and the Ukraine are at each others’ throats, at least their foods can live in harmony in our bellies.
