After reviewing the last few weeks of sporadic postings, I realized that there is somewhat of an overlying A-hole theme that has crept into this sexy little otter of a blog. All of my posts have sounded like a hyper-cranky Andy Rooney wanna-be has taken over the writing duties. Am I really that mad from the chafe of cockamamie culinary culprits? I think the answer is clear, but should I let this chain of venting turn borderline-obsessive like that whole month of Gateway Market stuff? This revelation was then passed on to my hiatal editor, Bathory, who had this to say…
You know, he’s right, I need to just chill out and write about something a little less stressful. He also has a right to be concerned now that his meal ticket is exerting signs of manic madness. (You can only get so many cans of Super Supper on a Karaoke King’s winnings, so he has to live off my creative output, like any good editor does)
My latest rants have been oft misconstrued by readers, both human and feline, and while my real talent lies not in writing good, solid articles, but in writing retractions and explanations and basically back-tracking all over the place, I still insist on trying to bring you news in the guise of opinion. The facts are sometimes colorfully re-arranged or totally skewed/backwards (I referred to SAMOSAS As PAPUSAS ONCE). Well, now that I have had someone holding my attention for the last twenty minutes (with something better than me just whining about whatever it is I was whining about), I forgot my point. Shocking.
OH! The point was that I need to maybe chill out and bring you some real news for a few days. We will see how that goes.
So without further skidoo, here is your Monday LG News, albeit a day late:
On August 2nd, 2010 from Noon until 1:30 p.m. I will have the honor of holding court with Michael Libbe of daily webcast Insight On Business , where Michael and I will be talking about local food, marketing, and probably local food. Tune in to hear Micheal every Monday to Thursday at Insight On Business.
Next Friday, August 6th, from 6 til 9 (I like where this is going so far), the Great Western Gateway Al Fresco Dining Event will be held on 15th street between Locust and Grand and will feature ingredients from Cleverly Farms in Mingo, Iowa and a collaborative menu from George Formaro, Tony Lemmo, Carly Groban, and will feature the baristas of Ritual Cafe. The price is $100 a head. You can read more about it here. I think I just went from 6 to midnight.
What else is going on? Tuesday, August 3rd will see this year’s edition of National Night Out which you can read about here. I hear that some local chefs are preparing food for the event to be served at Nollen Plaza.
well, that is your news for now.
I don’t feel right doing the news. I think talking sh#t may be in order for tomorrow.
that is all for now.
Oh, you can follow me on stinking Twitter if you really want to know what I am up to while shirking my write-a-torial duties at @VegChefDSM.
