1001 Black Men–#336

Here’s another drawing inspired by a guy I spotted while dining out with my mother. This man was part of a lively group having lunch a couple tables away from us at Pican. By the way, if you haven’t been to Pican (on Broadway, at the edge of downtown Oakland), my recommendation is that you make sure you have a little extra time. The service is very friendly, but I can’t really say that it’s fast. The food, however, is worth the wait. Be sure to try the pulled pork. Ditch the Texas toast, unless you really like bread. Also, check out the collard greens with brisket. It’s the food of the gods, I assure you. Can’t speak to the cocktails, because I tend not to indulge over lunch; but if the food’s any indication, then the cocktails are probably delicious.
