Manhattans, a Roast, Some Veggies

•You can read an article on Egypt, Tunisia, and political change by tonight’s Manhattans Project guest of honor, Saif Ammous, if you have a Financial Times subscription.  (Or catch him – and the rest of us – in person at Langan’s tonight, 7-10pm, way in the back room, 47th just east of 7th.)

•Remember, next month, you can also see me “roasted” down at Lolita Bar at the Bastille Day (Thur., July 14, 7:30pm) event called That Which Roasts Todd Seavey Makes Him Stronger, featuring speakers such as Berin Szoka of TechFreedom, a group that just published the forward-looking book The Next Digital Decade.

•Another of the speakers appearing at that Bastille Day roast, Diana Fleischman, e-mailed to report that she saw my friend Tibbie X getting tattooed on the new show NY Ink – and to remind me that I live in a tough city where even pad Thai can cause fights, involving an opera singer no less (who was later acquitted).  New York has its moments, but they’re nothing compared to L.A., where it’s gettin’ real in the Whole Foods parking lot, as a vegan like Diana should be forewarned.
