In Dreams: Leaving one job, starting another

Well, peoples, in one week I will be gone from my office job and starting in the unglamorous world of restaurant cookery. I'll work my way up from dishwashing in a condensed form of culinary bootcamp to gear up to run the kitchen at Wildwood BBQ when we open.

In the meantime, here're a bunch of pictures of recent eatings. I'll have more after this weekend, during which I am determined to return to the simple pleasures of hanging out, drinking beer and cooking bbq. The serenity of smoke calls to me.

Lunchtime! Kung Pao Chicken, brown rice and a coke from Grand Sichuan Eastern (2nd +55th)

After the opening of our very good friend, Joyce Pensato's art exhibit, we mosied over to Lombardi's w/ Hiroshi for some vittles.

The Race is On: 1 day and counting

Hey folks--

I'll be out cooking in the snow today with my buddy, Big Lou Elrose. We're only cooking a few chickens, so it shouldn't be too rough. We're whisking those birds into the city for a dunk in sauce and a turn on the grill for a tasting for Wildwood BBQ, the new B.R. Guest Restaurant we're opening on March 3, 2008. I gotta go and throw the sauce into a quart container.

I leave you with the masterful, George Jones in a prime performance of his great hit tune, The Race is On. Enjoy!
