  1. I think I may have heard about this occurring at previous dinners, where the service staff (volunteers) took social liberties to an unacceptable level, and hence adding the formal application. There is a level of service to be expected at these dinners I assume as well, but I think as long as you are respectful and know the basics, that should be sufficient. That's my opinion.
  2. Its that time if year again. One of my favorite ways to give back is to volunteer for the annual Sips & Suppers event held to benefit Martha’s Table. If you are available, I highly encourage you to sign up. It's great time & you get a chance to meet the finest culinary figures of the DMV. Depending which dinner you volunteer at you get to go home with a bunch of goodies to boot! The dinners will be held through out the DMV on 1/26/20. The all star list of chefs is impressive and includes DC’s fave, Frank Ruta.
  3. 2020 Philly Chef Conference , March 1-2 The line up has been published, and I am certain from now til then additions will be made. I will be attending this year, and hope to be able to participate in both days. I predict that the topics or theme of the conference will be to address food waste, cultural inclusion, and veganism.
  4. Update on the opening of Cheesecake Factory, popville.com There are very polarizing opinions in the comments section. I admit CF does not fall in my wheel house of choices to have a meal while in DC, but for some it is. The backlash it is receiving I think is comical.
  5. I am certain that the developers that are behind this second location of their original in VA did not do their homework on naming the new spot, and wonder if perhaps the locals may have a chuckle as well on the title of the food hall.
  6. Hoes gotta eat too. Its not an area I frequent often, if all lately, but Attmans Deli is close by , and Ida B’s is not in the best of area as well.
  7. Best fried chicken in Bmore is found on the Block. Just sayin.... The old Block that is 😉
  8. Frankly I was a bit disappointed they weren't peddling a vending machine filled with Veuve or Dom. I mean c'mon, it's Nieman Marcus. lol.
  9. Every year I look forward to what outrageous gifts are listed in The Book by Neiman Marcus. Moet Chandon Vending Case, at the bargain price of $35,000, is available for purchase to gift that someone special in your life.
  10. Maurizio Cattelan Is Taping Bananas to a Wall at Art Basel Miami Beach and Selling Them for $120,000 Each, artnetnews.com Someone please explain to me how this ducktaped nearly rotten banana is art, and the fact that it not only sold once, but is due to sell three pieces similar in nature.
  11. Why Moonlight’s Ending Is So Damn Powerful, Preston Thomas for medium.com Getting a head start on what perhaps may lead to a Decade in Review thread. Moonlight still stands as one of the best films I have seen in the last several years. If you have not seen it yet, I encourage you to add it your queue.
  12. I can't quite explain it, but a jello salad ranks tops in my book lately. Stepping foot inside Town Hall in New Holland, Pa is a throwback in time for sure.
  13. It doesn't get more Lancaster than this... This is what I want more of when I seek out places in Amish Country.
  14. Speaking of Siesetma, if that now infamous couple would have dined discreetly at Corduroy, perhaps they would not have been exposed. This isn’t the first time I have heard the lack of traffic as a result of Chef’s unwillingness to change the menu & the dated design of the space. Completing a design overhaul could be an expense he is not willing to entertain. The menu on the other hand, well... I will always have a soft spot for Corduroy, & think its hands down one of the best in town. There are dishes that are unique to the menu that you can not have anywhere else in the city, and the fact he rarely changes the menu is like returning to a old familiar favorite. I think Corduroy just needs to be included in the conversation more frequently. Every time I visit the District, a stop at 1122 9th St is always in my rotation, and as long as the doors are open, that will never change. Delish, kat
  15. Inside DoorDash's Silicon Valley ghost kitchen, a 'WeWork for restaurants' that allows tenants like Chick-fil-A to focus on food delivery, businessinsider.com
  16. He Express opens in Harrisburg with authentic Chinese food, self-ordering and a robot, pennlive.com
