Guess who feels like a Jackass right now

Posted on | October 10, 2010 | 1 Comment

You guessed right; ME.  Coming back home on Thursday night I wasn’t feeling so well.  I had just finished school at The French Culinary Institute/Interntional Culinary Center (whatever you want to call it) & had an amazing 5 course meal downstairs at L’ecole (review to follow).  I have no idea what the heck was going on but I basically spent Friday & Saturday in bed, shivering, sweating & mumbling to myself (in no way do I blame L’ecole for this by the way!)  Finally I get up today feeling much better & initially really angry that I flaked on a brunch I was meant to go to and also missed the Peak Organic tasting at Korzo Haus on 7th Street.

Then I read my emails.

The first one that caught my eye was from Amy, the Social Media Director at Foodspotting (she also runs Amy Blogs Chow & Stupidly Simple Snacks) letting me know that I’ve been nominated as a Super Spotter.  The email goes on to tell me that they had a free ticket for me at the sold-out New York City Wine & Food Festival’s Grand Tasting yesterday.  I mean it’s awesome to be one of the first two Super Spotters, but to be offered a free ticket to the Grand Tasting!  If I had only checked my mail on Saturday morning, I wouldn’t have cared how delirious I was!  Looking at the lineup of restaurants & exhibitors that were there, It’s been a rough Sunday for me!

Needless to say, check out my Foodspotting profile & cheer me up! http://www.foodspotting.com/eastvillageeats.
