Finally got to meet and talk with @AnthonyBourdain for the next season of his #CNN show #PartsUnknown airing in the fall. He knew all about my cultural history and we have friends in common. He talked about copping heroin in alphabet city when he was an addict and he remembered the names of brands of dope sold on the street back then. We ate at one of my lower east side faves, “Castillo” on Rivington off of Essex, one of the last classic latin spots remaining. The downtown scene then and now is the topic and it will air next season.
