Strangercrombie Strangercrombie Letter of the Day: “Ask Them to Prepare Your Carp”
posted by November 23 at 11:55 AMon
I hereby challenge you to an ad-hoc category for the Strangercrombie auction - we name the story we want written up by year team, for a sum of money, and you accept. Here is my story I want researched:
Go buy some fresh carp somewhere. Take said carp, minimally cleaned/ processed, to some of the best fish places in town, and ask them to prepare your carp - you pay full price for prep, of course. Find 3 upscale fish places that will prepare the carp for you, and judge the quality, and report it to us in your dining section.
I mean, you have one food/bar reviewer now that advocates exploding the tacky ornamental pigs around town, while another advocating eating their private parts with her father - I’m sure you can get such talent to get some nice places to cook up a carp. And if they can make a carp taste somehow palatable, then they can make anything taste good, so they deserve such mention.
What do you think ? I’ll donate $999.99 to the cause, for 3 reviews on preparing fresh carp in upscale restaurants?
You’re in luck, BB. Like every year, we’re auctioning off chunks of the paper for Strangercrombie, so readers like you can tell us what to write.
For the first time this year, you can do the writing.
We’ll still write the stories if you want, but why would you? Why worry we’ll fuck up your good idea? Why not write it yourself, get your name in the paper, and show everyone that anyone—even you—can write a superior story for The Stranger.
So if you want a chow story on carp, a chow story you shall have. And, for all our sakes, I hope you this is one you want to research and write yourself, you big sadist.
