i love wire, weekend, and hummus, so this is my plan:

evening of april 5th - walk up to oasis on north 7th and grab a hummus and falafel platter with extra tahini to go, then eat it in line at the MHOW. once inside, totally fucking blaze before weekend goes on and watch the set. after wire plays and i have the munchies I will grab a hummus pita from doner turkish food on bedford and go home to recharge for the the next day.

april 6th will be the crazy day... i will need a lot of energy, so on my way to the city i'll grab a quick hummus sandwhich to go from oasis and hop on the L train to manhattan.. once in manhattan i'll grab a falafel sandwhich with hummus from mamoun's and head over to mercury lounge for the early weekend set. after that I will haul ass (stopping at hummus place by st .marks first, of course) over to bowery for the wire set. i'll be burnt out after all that, so i'll end the night with some sabra from my fridge.
