The Chef For President & Street Party - 2 Videos

Throwing his whisk into the presidential race, the Chef breaks out of the kitchen with a couple of voting day videos! The 99 Cent Chef encourages his readers to get out and vote Tuesday. Participate and help make a difference. Republican or Democrat, all parties are welcome to the Chef's dinner table!

As for local propositions, the Chef supports public rail and subway bonds; the sooner we get off the "dinosaur teat" (oil) the better. Rock poet laureate Bob Dylan, here played by a black pleather clad, harmonica brace wearing Cate Blanchett look-a-like circa 1965 album Bringing It All Back Home; holds a "No on Prop 8" sign. The Chef agrees with Ms. Tambourine Man. You can also refer to his Gay Wedding Cupcakes video.

Need more convincing to vote? Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is giving away a free red, white and blue sprinkled star shaped doughnut when you show your "I voted" sticker, and Starbucks is pouring free 12 oz. cups of coffee.

While at work, the Chef had his headphones plugged into NPR news radio all afternoon listening to the Presidential Election results coming in. Later, after the Chef plopped onto the couch in front of the TV with beer and Trader Joe's Tart Alsace (a fancy pizza topped with caramelized onions in a cream sauce) to listen to McCain's honorable concession speech and then Obama's exhilarating acceptance speech, his wife suggested heading down the street to Leimert Plaza in the Crenshaw District of South L.A. to see if anyone was celebrating. Wow, were they ever! Check out the video -- apologies for the blurry video, as the Chef had one too many celebratory alcoholic beverages and he incorrectly set his camera to low resolution.
