hello coco
Tonight was the debut of Conan O’Brien‘s new TBS gig. In fact, the inaugural episode is wrapping up as I write.

Not a bad opener. The same goofy/manic energy from “Late Night” and “The Tonight Show”, somewhat condensed. I’m looking forward to more.

For some reason, the notable thing I saw on today’s E Train wasn’t the Rastafarian’s video-playing iPad, nor his Rasta-colored Skullcandy headphones, nor his indescribably-dyed dreads.

No, it was the beer-bottle-like container of saké, hanging from his pant pocket, that caught my interest.

Call me clueless, but I didn’t realize they even sold recreational single-serve bottles of rice wine. Only in New York! Oh, and I’m guessing all of Japan, too.

I tried to get a cameraphone photo of this scene, if for nothing else to snag a clearer image of the bottle’s label. Unfortunately, the frame I surreptitiously snapped was way too pixelated/blurry to make out. Now, I’ll never know what brand saké is favored by New York’s Jamaican tippler community…
