Good Morning, NY Hounds
Theres a chow event going on this weekend in Chicago that sounds quite fun. Its a 24 hour Chow-a-Thon. (see link below for details) Why am I posting about it on the Manhattan board?
First, I think it would be much fun to do something similar here in NYC at some point in the future (even a half-day chow-a-thon), so Id like to see if theres any interest. It could be like the NYC marathon - covering all five boroughs and people could join in at various points as their schedule permitted
Second, and more importantly, it is a fundraiser for Chowhound, and I know that many of you are concerned for the sites future - so perhaps might like to contribute in some small way. You can pledge per hour of chow, as your Chowhound brethren in another city chow around the clock, or perhaps just make a general donation to the site in their honor. (yes, I know it is Chicago, however I do see NY hounds posting there now-and-again requesting information, and the sites future depends on each of us doing what we can.)
Fwiw, my apologies in advance if you are offended by this fundraising post, I am just trying to help out Chowhound in my own small way, as I have benefited tremendously from the site
Feel free to email me at the address above, or Rob, the organizer of the Chicago Chowdown at VitalInfo@aol.com for more information on how you can get involved.
Please note this event is not sponsored by either Chowhound, Inc., or Chowhound.com.
