This is my twice yearly public service blog about Restaurant Week in DC (August 11-17). Do you take advantage of this? Restaurant Week takes place twice a year, once in the frigid cold of the post-holidays and then again in the dog days of August. Times when diners are likely to be few. For all the details, Google "restaurant week dc.” For those out of the area, many cities schedule these. A three course lunch…

The week’s summary is easy Ian, Tommy, Rick, and John strategically picked Seattle, cashing in on one of the great upset routs we have seen in some time.…

Restaurant Week! There is still time!

Posted on August 22, 2013 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

Summer Restaurant Week in Dc runs through the weekend, so there is still time to make reservations.

One interesting part of this is we get to see what is "in" at all the trendy places. what the food fads are. One year watermelon gazpacho was "the" appetizer. Then there was the year when height on the plate was the thing; your entree looked like the chef was playing Jenga with your food. Then there was the "deconstructed" phase where a "burger" appeared as separate stacks of…

Hey Ed - You running a football pick 'em again this year?  A couple people have asked me if something like that was occurring so thought would be cool if you did it again.

As an old-line journalist, I try to straddle the line between the old and the new. Paper, as a storage medium, has existed for over 2100 years. There's nothing like the feel of a good book, but I also carry a NOOKcolor with me, because there's nothing like having an entire library at your disposal.

Hope you feel better - sorry to hear about that.  Vacation sounds fun.

Ed - thanks for the Paris recommendation.  How's retired life going?  Doing any fun travels?

Hi Ed,

I wasn't really sure if I was civil.  Matter of fact, I labored after sending because I'm not born rude.  But I'm so tired of being beat up because of my employer - who does a lot of good work!  Anyway, thank you again for your comments.  Have a great week!

ED, I am a GS-14 performance and development human resources specialist in search of a leadership development assignment in fulfillment of the Department of Commerce's executive leadership development program.  It must be in the Federal government, but doesn't have to be in HR.  Any suggestions?
