Two Items of Interest

If you live in the DC Area: You can buy tickets to see one of your favorite Food Network stars this November doing a demo, or maybe go to their book signing. I'm still on the fence, but I'd looooove to see Paula Deen. It's tough, because I definitely make more Giada recipes, but I just want to give Paula a big hug like she's my grandma. I reaaaally want to go to her restaurant in Savannah. <3 No one even sent me an e-mail asking me to advertise this (and I ignore them all anyway!) so it's just a PSA for those of you who live on FoodTV/HGTV like me. This photo of Paula is from the event web site!

If you live in the NJ/NY area: Discounts in New Brunswick for Friday Night Date Night offer a STEAL at some area restaurants, including the fancy-shmancy deliciousness that is The Frog and the Peach. I probably can't get from DC to central Jerz fast enough on a Friday afternoon to enjoy this, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't. Mmmmm, cheap(er) food...

Coming soon, blogwise: Ridiculously amazing brunch dish at Poste, revisiting Beck, first look at Kora (from Chef Morou of Farrah Olivia), and Eamonn's.


  1. That Frog and the Peach deal would have been really convenient like 2 months ago!

    I <3 Paula Deen and will go to Savannah with you to go to her restaurant. I also love Savannah, so it's an easy call!

  2. Problem is, I love Giada so so so much that I'd likely embarrass myself in front of her. I almost went last year, but there was a miscommunication and my mom didn't end up getting me tickets for my birthday. *pout*

  3. Paula's restaurant in Savannah is totally worth the trip (and the city is nice too!) If you can go during the week do it otherwise you will face a line that wraps around the block.

  4. I'm cool with the wait-on-line-at-10am-for-7pm-dinner-reservation thing. So long as the reward is somethin' full of butter.
