Sunday, March 11
Good Sunday evening! Did you have a fun weekend? Sorry for no Friday post, but I just wasn't feeling any inspiration. It had been a very long week.
Anyhow, just two more things related to the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival that I forgot to mention:
1. Alton Brown is great to his fans.
Any chance he could get, Alton would be taking photos and signing autographs. I joke here about the "man crushes," but I really think Alton was one of the few chefs that the male attendees were dying to get a photo with. I just didn't see the same kind of adoration for, say, Bob Flaymaster.
I wanted to say hi to Alton at the Food Network Awards afterparty, but he was swamped. Ace of Cakes star (and my pal) Mary Alice and her husband are super Alton fans, but I didn't want to walk up and say, "Hi Alton, you know on the show 'Ace of Cakes' there's that Mary Alice? Well, she likes you. Oh, and so does her husband. And you're not too bad by me, either."
I think I was just too freaked after my rambling episode with Dave earlier (luckily his head nod to me at the party was enough and I didn't want to spoil it with some attempt at conversation).
2. My Flickr Page of Festival Photos
I want to invite you all to check out all my photos from the festival at my Flickr Page. They haven't been Photoshopped or anything, so forgive me for the bad quality.
There's lots more of Giada, Michael Chiarello, Paula Deen, Ina Garten (I wish; she wasn't there), Tyler Florence, and more. Check 'em out!
Okay, this time change is wearing me down. I gotta hit the hay!
