Congee Village With Jen Tong...

Even though Jen Tong came to the get together I had on Friday evening, we didn't really get a chance to catch up. So, we made plans to meet up at a really authentic Chinese restaurant in the Lower East Side called Congee Village. Apparently "congee" means "rice porridge". We shared a HUGE bowl of soup, a MASSIVE pile of fried rice, and YUMMY lychee martinis. It was delicious and inexpensive (all for about $10 a person not including the tip).

It was nice to catch up. We talked about our future plans. She's having a show in Chicago this week and will be in attendance there. My friend Jeremiah Ketner (another very talented artist) has agreed to put her up for her stay. CLICK HERE to check out his website. Jen Tong is also working on a silkscreen book and conceptualizing the ending for her online comic book, Orifice. As always, it was a treat to sit down and talk with her!
