Today I was invited to eat lunch at RED GINGER DIM SUM & TAPAS by owner Mai Medvedev, and she made me eat chicken feet! Haha! Mai took these pictures of me doing my best to get it done. She and GM Stephen laughed at my antics and told me not to worry, they would eat the rest! How were they? Much more gelatinous than I anticipated… and… yeah. No. Never again. Hahaha! Everything else Mai & Stephen fed me tasted awesome, and they were a pleasure to meet and spend time with. Thanks to my friend, Monroe Spivey from MEV STUDIOS, who does Red Ginger’s PR, and put me in touch with Mai. Good times!

Thanks Mai, Stephen and Red Ginger!
