Our friend Sang (who MSF patrons may remember as the cashier with the impressive hair or the busboy with a yellow lace apron) is a big Michael Jackson fan. He was telling us about his fond memory of gathering around the TV with his family to see the world premiere of Michael's "Black or White" video. After Sang walked us through the excited build-up and subsequent controversy, we revisited this cultural touchstone, and could hardly believe that this was what we'd seen on prime time television almost 20 years ago. Now that the MJ tributes have calmed down, we want to commemorate this classic moment in pop-culture history with a menu of "Black or White"-inspired dishes. While we encourage growling, shrieking, and heavy-handed symbolism, we discourage any crotch-grabbing and car smashing in the dining room.
MSF profits will go to the St. Anthony Foundation, which serves over 2,600 meals per day--365 days a year--and provides medical services, clothing, and housewares to those in need.
