Dave Feldman, a NY chowhound who has shared his favorite restaurants with several members of the Bay Area community, is coming to the Bay Area for Labor Day weekend. Melanie, Chowfish and I promised him that if he came, we'd roll out the red carpet and organize some chowevents.
So get ready for:
**FeldmanFest 2004: September 2-6**
Details are still being worked out, but in the meantime, here's the line-up. Save the dates and mark your calendars! RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org unless otherwise specified.

Saturday, 9/4: The Hounds descend on the Ferry Building around 10 o'clock.
