Coming off their previous issue, mainly a music issue (rather than the usual partial music), MOOD gets back to what they do best with a unique focus on urban and alternative foodstuffs: fiddlehead toasts, cool San Francisco restaurants, the “Almighty” Robert Mitchum rum drink (and Calypso album), the Snacky Tunes radio show hosted in the backyard of Roberta’s in Brooklyn, drinking games, cuisine at Rockaway Beach, the usual.
