    Vincent Williams (Honey’s Kettle) & Static Jacks

    For the past 20 years, Honey’s Kettle has cemented itself as a Los Angeles institution known for great comfort food, and especially for its delicious hand-dipped, kettle-cooked fried chicken. Vincent Williams, Honey’s Kettle’s chef and founder, started in the chicken business at 17 years old, and has spent decades perfecting not only frying chicken, but also developing his family-owned business. Vincent sits down with us to talk about his decision to expand during the pandemic with the launch of Honey Drop Kitchen delivery-only locations, and shares with us what it’s like to be a black-owned business in America.

    For our musical guest and performance, we revisit our 2012 meet-up with New Jersey rockers, Static Jacks. They shared with us tales of busking in NYC and of beloved diner tuna melts. The quartet also gave us a spirited acoustic set, playing songs from their debut album, If You’re Young.

    The always nattily dressed Maxwell Britten has long been one of our favorite barmen. We first met him in our halcyon wayback Brooklyn days when we would unwind at Maison Premiere’s bar, slurping oysters accompanied by his expertly made cocktails. Maxwell’s now become an industry activist. As the National Chairman for the non-profit THIRST Group (The Hospitality Industry Reimagined Security Trust), he’s lobbying elected officials to advocate for insurance companies honoring their small business claims during the pandemic.

    We then jump into the archives and land in October 2018 to revisit our dance party meetup with Morgan Wiley and Ria Bouttier, the duo behind tropical disco house outfit 88 Palms.
