I adore food. I'm not really much of a cook, so a great meal prepared by someone else pretty much makes my heart sing. There are very few things I either can't or won't eat: mayonnaise (unless it's mixed in with something), shrimp & crawfish (I'm allergic), and most beans (it's a texture thing). Anything else is really up for grabs. I'll try anything once, and if I hate it, I'll try something else.
Anyway. The idea for this blog came out of two events. First, I won gift cards to each of the 27 restaurants participating in my city's Restaurant Week. Second, I went out of town this past weekend and had an absolutely amazing meal with some friends, both of whom suggested that I start a food blog.
So here's what you can expect. I'll be chronicling my experiences at each of the 27 restaurants - everything from food to service to atmosphere to drinks. I'll also be writing about my experiences whenever I go out to eat or drink. Finally, I have a standing weekly dinner with a dear friend. He cooks pretty well, and we tend to try new things, so I'll be including those as well.
I may even be inspired to learn to cook. And if I decide that, you'll hear all about those misadventures as well.
