This week, it's all about my love of D'Corazon--and the power of two cold beers and a bowl of melted cheese and a plate of enchiladas on a quiet afternoon.
But man does not live by queso alone, although I tried when I left one meal at D'Corazon and crossed the street for another at the Rio Grande Restaurant. And so I also have good news for fans of Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs, as well as those who still miss the barbecue at the Bugling Bull. All that will be up on this site tomorrow.
And in the meantime, if you missed my coverage of the International Association of Culinary Professionals conference that was in town last week, give it a look. We basically had several hundred serious food professionals descend on our fair city, every one of them meaning to eat and drink until they popped. And where was I? Right in the middle of all the fun with a laptop and an internet connection. In case you've ever wondered how the other half lives when they're among their own kind, now you can find out. I'll give you a hint, though. Food writers? They know how to drink.
