Of course, nobody really wins on City of Ate. But if we ever do try prize giveaways again, there's a mess of stuff to pick from. Let's see here...a miniature bottle of Tuaca, a big ol' container of Chef Paul Prudhomme's Magic Seasoning Blend, a packet of seeds and oats that may be cereal sent by the folks at Craft--and plenty more.
Picking non-prizewinners this week proved rather difficult, as there were a number of long, well-reasoned, informational postings. So we chose to non-reward some short, easy to read snippets:
luniz decided to push some buttons in response to the burger battle (when I ate part of a box for comparison purposes): "I heard Costco's cardboard was to die for."
Our Top 10 sexiest female chefs drew some lukewarm responses, such as (from Bruce) "Well now I certainly know why the idea for a Playboy 'Girls From a Hot Kitchen' issue died on the vine" and (from
JD Whitaker) "Well...at least they can cook."
But top snippet spot goes to Worzel Gummidge, for this in response to news that David Uygur is searching for a location to put his new restaurant: "Has he considered opening his own place at 2917 Fairmount? I hear it is becoming vacant soon."
Of course, 2917 Fairmount is the location of Lola, Uygur's current (and soon to close) space.
