The last time I was in LA for meetings I spied this food truck parked along the street. It must be good.

Slap Yo' Mama food truck in LA
This is a serious endorsement.

A hundred years ago when I was working for Style Weekly in Richmond, I laughed out loud reading a restaurant review by the brilliant and adorable George Stoddart – no longer with us, alas – who wrote that something (I’ve forgotten) “was so good it’ll make you want to slap your grandma.” Well I’ve been saying it ever since, albeit sparingly, as the expression signifies the highest praise – the equivalent of Lin on Dancing With the Stars awarding a “10.”

Now with Mother’s Day just behind us… Heck, even if the food isn’t good, I bet the people running it are a hoot. I mean, who would name a business “Slap Yo’ Mama”? I want to meet them.

May you this week eat, do, make, see, feel, hear, touch something so good you’ll want to… you know.
