The par-tay...

It was fun, gang. I wish some of you regulars out there could have made it. We had dim sum everywhere (the curry chicken turnovers are SOOOO good!) and the laughs were flowing freely. The only thing missing? Some of the frequent commenters.

A funny aside... Pacific Moon's Bill Hatfield came over to me that night and said, "Hey, that couple over there is here to celebrate the Foodie Report's birthday." So I went over to greet them, wondering who I was about to meet. A familiar screenname? A mysterious anonymous poster? I get over there and they tell me, "We don't even know what a blog is. But we saw the specials online and we came. You guys plan to do this again soon?!"

All righty... Here are some pics.

And coming soon: Another Foodie Report gathering. We're thinking a roller skating rink/bar. Oh yeah... I can already feel the bruising, baby...

Left to right: Lauren Bishop, Amy Goldberg and Lisa Cieslewicz partake at the partay...

Bill Cieslewicz, a carefully-disguised Polly Campbell, and Stepfanie Romine belly up to the bar.

What? No picture from the after-party?

Drinking and skating don't mix. But I still hope I can make it to the next one.

Back in the day my friends and I would roller blade over to Habits in Oakley. We'd grab bite to eat, have a drink and then skate back home. Not very smart in retrospect.

ps.. Does the phrase "back in the day" make me sound old?

Oh, you know we can't post those! But check your e-mail... Ha!

You are correct, Schottzie. Drinking and skating don't mix. Hence, the allure! Whatever we do, we'll try to give everyone a few weeks heads up, so you can clear your calendars!

FoodieToo, I'm pretty sure "back in the day" isn't any worse than "par-tay." You're good. We might sound old, but at least we know what a blog is... Thanks to all the newfangled tubes and all... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f99PcP0aFNE

(I love that soundbyte...)

I'm so sorry that I couldn't make it. Please schedule another one soon. Perhaps we should start some sort of foodie club whereby we pick a restaurant, meet, eat and schmooze.
