Andrew Chalk is a wine-loving maniac. I asked him to help me cover last weekend’s activities and he did a fine job. He is still reporting! Here is a quick video he produced on an interesting Chardonnay made by Fisher Vineyards (Napa Valley), one of the 100 wines poured at the grand tasting. Note: special cameo appearance.3 Comments »

I’ve decided to sex up the photo for our KRLD Restaurant Week Reservation Swap post. The photo of Brit and Madge is a Getty image and I’ll probably get reprimanded, but let’s enjoy it while it lasts.
Here are the rules: if you have an existing reservation at a participating RW restaurant, leave the date, time, restaurant, and number of people along with a contact e-mail below in comments. I will monitor the post and Twitter (DSideDish) any requests. I love to work. I really do. Be nice to each other. (Did Britney get a boob job?)
