Wayne: How is Petaluma different than where you grew up New York?
Adrian: People like good beer in Brooklyn. People like good beer in Petaluma. I see more similarities. There’s a good sense of community here. People seem connected to art, life, music and that’s what Brooklyn is to me.
Wayne: There are a lot of wildlife preservation minded folks in Petaluma, and I noted you are working on a documentary 52: The Search for the Loneliest Whale in the World – Tell us about what you want people to take away from this documentary.
Adrian: A deeper connection to the ocean is a good start. But I’ve been telling people it’s a mystic quest story. There’s a lot of mystery in the ocean. The film is about a whale that lives in solitude who calls out at a 52 hertz, a frequency no other whales understand. It’s a movie about connection.
Wayne: I noticed you enjoyed home cooked muffins at the Sunday’s during your stay in Petaluma, did you get the opportunity to try out any of our restaurants while you were here?
Adrian: That Bovine Bakery’s morning rolls were way too good. Speakeasy had those Empanadas I liked. Thistle and Twisted are great. But the gold medal goes to the Indian Restaurant Everest. The food there is next level and the owner and his family are gracious and sweet.
Wayne: Well we appreciate your time and we hope to see you back to our small town in the future.
Adrian: Thank you. I had a great time. I’m stuffed.
