Darin (right) and his twin brother Greg are the duo behind the Dinner With The Band television series, Snacky Tunes radio program, Summer BBQ Blowout events, and several other food and music projects.
What was the food highlight of your year?
Greg and I had traveled to Skiathos, Greece and on our last day there, our friends took us to the oldest city, Kastro, for our final meal. We ate at a shack that the propietor built herself and only served Greek Salad, french fry omelets and locally made pork sausages. We finished the meal with Greek coffee and she read our future in the grounds.
What was the music highlight of your year?
When the Japandroids played the Music Hall of Williamsburg this summer, their new album, Celebration Rock, was just breaking. The place was packed to the walls and going nuts, one of the best times this year.
Was there a moment when food and music came together in a memorable way?
We had to tear down our culinary studio this year, so in celebration we threw one last pot luck. Before everyone came over, I spent the morning prepping my Grandmother’s cauliflower soup and listening to the last LCD Soundsystem concert. It’s a Saturday I won’t soon forget.
