What, ash cones are not good enough for you??!

Jumpin' jellyfish. Ah mean, sufferin' succotash.

You are just the agent provocateur we need to put the smack down. Phooey.

I would also like to see the estimable Kenneth Burns, Oprah, and rosemary make an appearance.

Well, I'm not on the cool kids list, but I'm not going anyway--gotta work. I just wanted to RSVP in the negative, officially.

Ah so, but what if you are "the one who writes really good food reviews" ?

Eh?

Sorry you have to work, TBP. Another time, we shall hoist a flagon of ale.

Now my motor is running...what about supaunknown, chuck schick, logjam...come Very Early, and be wasted by the Digibot/Kites show...! You won't even have to change venues!

Modesty forbade me from that assumption.

I'm steadily building up quite a future calendar of flagons to be hoisted and quaffed.

I've already RSVPed, Mr. Robin, and as I have not yet met any forons, I may be a little shy. So, I suppose that if most of you already know one another outside the interweb, I'll be the one y'all don't know. So introduce yourselves... if I don't sack up and beat you to it first.

Very nice to meet you IRL, Rosemary.

The panel was a blast, with lots of audience involvement and some gratuitous bashing of local restaurants and writers.

Linda F. in particular was terrific; she has impeccable comedic timing.



And the chocolate was DELICIOUS.

I thought the raspberry was the bomb, myself.

Hey, CR, a pleasure to have met you as well. Here's the book I told you about. [http://www.amazon.com/Dining-Out-Secrets-Americas-Restaurateurs/dp/047129277X/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-8624977-1674446?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1180704230&sr=8-1] I think it's a tremendous resource not just for people who make some kind of a living from reviewing restaurants, but for anyone who loves to eat out and think critically about the entire experience, for instance. I bought mine used from the downtown library, sooo... you may not find it there. Or maybe you will. I don't know.

I enjoyed the discussion, too. I'm not a serious food blogger, which meant (for me) that I didn't come in with any expectations last night. I just wanted to listen and observe other's thoughts on our restaurant and food scene. I liked that the panel was composed of a good range of viewpoints and experiences, too.

Yeah, yeah, great, whatever.

What about the ice cream?
