Guitarist, the Killingtons. BREAKFAST: "My old favorite breakfast spot was right down the street, walking distance from my house. Unfortunately, that place got to the point where I felt more like I was at a Cro-Mags show than a restaurant. Watching the 'I'm Punker Than You' contest ended up killing my appetite, so Plums took over the throne. It's tucked back in the corner of a small, incognito shopping center on 17th Street in Costa Mesa. The menu is insane and completely unique, and you don't have to worry about getting bitten by some jock's pit bull while you eat." LUNCH: "I don't think I need to explain my fascination with Wahoo's Fish Taco. Anyone who has ever been there knows. The one in Costa Mesa on Placentia Avenue is the shit. Wahoo's is probably half the reason I stay in California." DINNER: "A tie between Mario's and Haus of Pizza. Both of these places rule, and eating at either of them pretty much renders you useless for the rest of the evening. As soon as your ass hits your chair at Mario's, there's a pile of chips in front of you, and the guy never stops bringing them until you feel like you are going to die. Their food is great, and their mango margaritas are even better. I have been physically addicted to Haus of Pizza since I moved out here 12 years ago. Pizza is my favorite food, and with the exception of getting it by the slice on the street in New York City, Haus of Pizza is the best I have ever had. It was through stuffing our fat faces at Haus of Pizza that my friend Jon Weir and I were made aware of the term 'crapulous,' which means gross, unnatural discomfort due to overeating. Both Mario's and Haus of Pizza will put you in a severely crapulous state, for sure. You will crawl home and ask yourself why you did it."
