So, my whole morning/afternoon was different than my usual schedule. Usually on Thursday, I do my social media posts for The Less Desirables and then catch up on stuff. Stuff can be work (one of the multiple jobs), travel, stuff around the house, maintenance, whatever. But, in the past two weeks I’ve been extra busy.
Most of it has been visits to various restaurants or bars. I’ve taken on a more aggressive position on reporting food stuffs for The Man Who Ate the Town and that means that I’m visiting with foodie people. Earlier this week, I visited a restaurant that is still in development and got to talk with the owners (more later). Yesterday, I did a walking trek up to the soon-to-be-open Wise Man Brewing and I’ll be talking about that on the next TMWATT podcast. Today, I met The BCPF for a rare lunch date at the behest of our buddy Alex who is a chef at both Willow’s Bistro and where we ate today, Rooster’s A Noble Grille. We were there to try “specials:” a burger for me and a grilled cheese for her. Again, it’s something I’ll be talking about on the podcast. And then late this afternoon, I went to see my pal Jordan Keiper, Mixologist Extraordinaire, at The Tavern in Old Salem, where I did a very special tasting of a very special beer in which that tasting will be featured in national media. I’m under embargo for that and can’t really discuss it, but I can assure you, I’ll be talking about it as soon as I’m able.
I know that’s a whole lot of teasing and I do apologize. Sincerely. But, there’s a lot of good stuff going on and I want to save that for when I can devote my total effort to decent coverage of it all. So, it will be talked about in podcasts. But, The BCPF and I both agreed that we had a fantastic time having lunch together; something we don’t get to do a whole lot of. It helps that Rooster’s is right next to here work. I met her there and we walked over. That’s good for her and easy for me. Good for Rooster’s, too. We do eventually plan on having more lunch dates, when the time’s right. So, keep an eye out for the podcast and posts. Thanks for listening and reading.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
