Wow, topping 2010 in terms of eating will be quite difficult, but I'll be damned if I'm not going to try! I bet your're just dying to know what I have planned for 2011. Well, for one I know that we're going to New Orleans for Jazz Fest at the end of April and you just know I'm going to do something huge for my 30th birthday in July. I'm thinking it'll go down in Philly, but that's not set in stone just yet. I also want to get back out to Chicago to visit with my buddy M and get some more eats, and I might be planning a trip around Labor Day as well, the details of which are still in the works.
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and have a happy new year!! See you in 2011!
