There’s a bunch of fun holiday markets and shows and other shit happening in Charleston this month! I talk about a few and manage to resurrect my holiday spirit. By the end of the episode I’m even mildly excited about December in spite of myself.
Then, I take way too long to go over all the different snacks I’ll be making on Christmas Eve and caution you against humiliating your guests by making, ridiculous, impossible-to-eat, sloppy, giant, stupid canapés.
“a small French passed hors d’oeuvre. AKA one-biters.” (I made this definition up. but it’s accurate.)
However, if your goal is to humiliate your guests…I provide a few good examples of just how to do that. Whatever you’re into, there’s something for everyone. Bah H—appy Holidays…. 😒
After a tough couple of weeks, I came extremely close to cancelling Thanksgiving altogether…but a well-timed message from a dear friend in F&B brought me back to “the table”. Happy Thanksgiving to all, and here’s to doing exactly what you can and not a bit more.
I’ve been talking to a lot of people who say dining out doesn’t feel worth it these days. I stumble through my thoughts on why that is and make a case for having a third (or fourth or fifth) party taste your food if you’re selling it for money.
I remind everyone to come try and dunk me in the dunk tank to raise money for W.R.E.N. (supporting reproductive freedom in SC) THIS MONDAY 8/22/22 at The Whale from 5-8pm and talk about my favorite new pillow. Plus, I make a peach crisp and run out of time.
On today’s show I sit down with Restaurant-Meme-Mogul, Eli Sussman. I think Eli is extremely funny and so does everyone on Instagram who’s ever worked in a restaurant. GO SEE THE MEMES HERE: https://www.instagram.com/thesussmans/?hl=en and listen in to find out more about how he became the king of the meme, where you can eat his food in NYC and what he would be doing if he wasn’t already VERY BUSY making us all laugh.
