I’ve been a big fan of Spencer Day since the first time I heard him sing in 2003 when he joined the cast of Gold Rush! a non-profit event I produced for the Tenderloin AIDS Resource Center. Then as now, his passion for music and song is really hard to put into words. Spencer is a modern jazz singer and songwriter who has released four albums. His latest release “Daybreak” has reached number 20 on the Billboard charts and is a tribute to music of the 60’s. He’s currently working on a concept song cycle album about Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Spencer answers my foodie questionnaire here:
What is your favorite dessert?
Really good chocolate mousse but I’m more of a savory/salty person.
What restaurant would you call home?
Probably Club Helsinki in Hudson, NY. Anytime I’m in Hudson I go there. The staff are great and super friendly.
What is the strangest or most inspiring thing you’ve ever eaten?
The first time I was in Cleveland I had a deep fried pickle. Not something you’d think of as inspiring but it was really amazing.
What was your favorite breakfast cereal as a kid?
Definitely Captain Crunch.
What is your favorite food to pig-out on after the club?
If it’s at a restaurant, truffle oil on fries. If I’m at home popcorn. Really, truffle oil on anything!
