The Fabulous Heftones at Altus Saturday/Today

Saturday, November 11th, 2006

Friends, if you are looking for a diversion from the crummy weather; if you want great food and fun music; if you live in the Greater Lansing (Michigan) area, please consider this:

Brian and I are performing as The Fabulous Heftones, at Altu’s Ethiopian Cuisine today. Saturday, November 11. From 6:30pm-8:30pm. It’s a family-friendly place so do bring the kids if that works best for you.

If you would rather stay home, go for it… but if you’re looking for a little fun and food, this is some serious fun for not a lot of funds. If you’ve never had Ethiopian Food before, check out “What is Ethiopian food like?” from Altu’s website.

My mom and Regina both like a mild beef stew with veggies, on a bed of rice. It’s pretty close to a comfort food that we (who grew up in the midwest of the USA) would recognize.

I like the more adventurous foods (including the famous spongy sourdough-like flat bread that is traditional), and there are many excellent vegetarian meals that satisfy completely. If you like spicy food, this is something like hot Mexican, not quite as spicy as Thai can get. At least, not the way it’s served at the restaurant (it can get WAY spicy in Ethiopia, they have side sauces that can really turn up the heat). But it has other flavors like cardamom in small bits, filling in between the hot spices, and it really is satisfying. Yum!

We would love to have you come out. There is no cover, though we always have CDs to sell and tips are always welcome and appreciated.
