Chicago 2007

Who wants to have Food Feeding Frenzy 2007 in Chicago next summer? Who wants to go to Alinea? And other places? The Professional Society that I belong to is having its annual conference in Chicago next summer, and I intend to skip most of the sessions on EAD and DACS (sorry Tom) in favor of things like Italian Beef. I'm looking at you ladies specifically -- you ladies with the deep Chicago food knowledge -- Ms.s. JW and EB and CM. But everyone else is welcome too. Just let me know soon, because I suspect I need to make a reservation at Alinea about 9 months in advance.

hellllllls yeah. chicago is where it's at. of course they proclaim their foodiness a few months after i move to san fran, but whatever.

if we hit alinea, we should also hit schwa. it's quite the talk of the town. in between the italian beef, the polish sausages, and the deep dish pizza of course.

when is this conference anyway?

August 29-Sept. 1. Let's go! And schwa too, even though I think that is a dumb name for a restaurant.

geezus. i'm SO there! my mom's birthday is the 28th of august, which makes it even more convenient. oh wow, you, cindy and me in chicago -- it's basically a dream come true.

btw, i'm going to san francisco over new years. should be there about a week. you should come! we're going to eat at Gary Danko's, among many many many many others.

I would love to go to SF over New Year's, but we will be (clap clap clap STOMP) deep in the heart of Texas. Eating large quantities of BBQ brisket and tamales! Garett went to Gary Danko once -- you should ask him about it!

I guess it would be hard to turn down even though it means I have to eat foam. Count me in and I'll figure out the details, like how to be Ruth-less. I also want to go to blackbird or avec.

Oh yes, Jen, we must absolutely go to Blackbird. We had such a wonderful dinner there years ago.

avec is good fun. but i don't know about blackbird. last time i went there i got waaayyyyy drunk. i blame blackbird...clearly it couldn't have been my fault.

i almost went to avec last week with my mom, but it was 3 and they don't open til 3:30 and i was ravenous. we drove right up to the front of the restaurant and my mom and i just paused there, gaping in pathetically to see whether there was any shot at getting in early. it seemed that all the chefs and staff were having family meal in the front of the restaurant, and many looked up to see what this strange car was doing hovering 10 feet away from them, containing two ravenous staring women. i became ashamed and made my mom drive away quickly. i ended up eating a starbucks hot chocolate for lunch.

the end.

i am also opposed to foam. and the name schwa. but you have to like a restaurant that has pissed off every single chef in the city for getting 3 stars with no wine list.
