Wil Wheaton is in my town

...and I don't have a snowball's chance in hell of meeting him. I cannot tell you how bummed out I am about this. He's here doing "Leverage," Timothy Hutton's show that's filmed here in Portland, so he's too busy to do signings, appearances, etc. I'm trying to entice him into a trip to Potato Champion (best french fries in the known world, which is the world I know), but alas. To push it too far is to become Creepy Stalker Woman, and I don't wanna be that!

But srsly, Wil, on the off-chance, really really off-chance, you read this? Food carts at SE 12th and Hawthorne. Awesome fries, vegan/gluten-free crepes, anarchist pasta, and fried pies, both savory and sweet. Srsly. You will thank me. The fries place is open till 3 am.

I can always use recs for good places to eat in Portland. Your description of this place has totally enticed my guy, so I suspect we'll be headed there in the near future.

What is it with Wil Wheaton other than the fact he was in the movie Stand by Me?

and ENORMOUS geek. If all you know is his acting, you don't know him.

He was also uber-geek Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: TNG. Apparently he also has a blog of some sort, and has a bit of a cult following or some such.

I don't get it either. But I do follow his Twitter.

What is this "anarchist pasta"? It sounds awesome :bigsmile:

It's a funky trailer converted into a kitchen. They make all kinds of weird and normal pasta dishes featuring whatever's fresh in the market. I obviously can't eat there but I'm told it's really good.

We do offer other forms of noodles and pasta besides semolina. One of the kewl thangs about noodles is that they can be made from all sorts of stuff: we typically carry several forms of rice stick, mung bean noodles, and Korean sweet potato starch noodles. So if you're unable to eat the wheat we've got you covered. We have a separate pasta pot going all the time for wheat free options; they just take a little longer (have you seen how rice pasta responds to being cooked ahead of time? Talk about glue). Regardless, we do try to offer stuff that's healthy and tasty for most diets including wheat free and vegan.

Come down to Yarp?! and let me know it's you and we'll bust out some goodness...

(On a side note, your comments about gluten make more sense to me now! Yay Smile )

I have no idea who you are and doubt we'll ever meet, but you just made my day. And MeiLin's, too, I'm sure.

Where do we find Yarp and how do we get a hold of you?

...is in Portland, at the SE 12th and Hawthorne conglomeration of INCREASINGLY awesome food carts. Included are my beloved Potato Champion and my newly beloved Perreira Creperie (gluten-free crepes with lemon curd, lingonberry jam and chevres FTW!). So I need to swing by there and check Yarp?! out for yummy noodles. mmm...nooooodles...

Not nearly enough Wil. Plus also, if he was wearing a kilt, I couldn't see it. Wink

Does Sir know about your WilW-in-a-kilt fetish?

Also, I have been corrupted again. I saw that ep of BBT and immediately thought of MeiLin and the comm here...
