Countdown to Lunchfest!

9 days until I begin the tour of 62 restaurants in 62 days. I want to thank my friends and family for being so supportive of me in this endeavor. I am choosing places that are "off the beaten path," "obscure," or otherwise different.

I will be completely unbiased with all places I visit and I'll tell it like it is! If the service is slow, you are going to hear about it. If the food looks unappetizing, you will know about it. Likewise, you will know of amazing experiences and places I will definitely revisit in September!

If you have any suggestions of places that you have wanted to try, but haven't gone yet or just places that you are curious about, let me know! I am up for anything!

Ask for it - you might get it!

Gearing up for 62 restaurants starting in 12 days!

I am getting excited about the "tour of restaurants!" I will be visiting local eateries and sharing all of the details about them. Photos, of course, will accompany every blog - even if it is not a pretty picture! (I am all about the presentation!)

I will be eating all over the Bay Area from Pinellas to Hillsborough to Pasco and maybe even Hernando! It is 62 days and I don't want to limit myself.

This will be a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy my daily adventures!

Saturday, June 11, 2010

For the past three months I have been dining at various establishments for lunch and posting pictures. This started due to the death of my fiance of 17 years. Friends were going to lunch with me daily to break up the monotony of "life." Thank goodness for so many friends!

Many of my friends suggested that I start this posting of restaurants, food and environment for you to see. I considered it for a while and decided that on July 1, 2010, I would start my "tour" of restaurants for lunch and tell you what I think about each one.

I will give you all of the details, from the good to the gory! I try and find positive things about even the "worst" restaurant. I hope that you enjoy my daily postings and if you want me to try a place you have wanted to go, but haven't, just let me know! I will be glad to check it out for you!

I always post pictures of my entree. Sometimes you will see pictures of the restaurant or even an exceptional server!

Follow me every day to see where I end up next!
