Sometimes at great personal peril (Russkar is still recovering from the repeated attack to his system by six different dispensers of the manna of the pit) the Cabal of 'hounds behind the Roving Chow Fest did a four hour, four freeway turn in Herman yesterday, doing that all important field work necessary before the actual Chowhound invasion. We sampled various cuisines which represent a minute fraction of the wide variety of foodstuffs available, all in service to our fellow 'hounds. We are preparing our battle plans and will be issuing marching orders to all fellow 'hounds soon.
As of this point in our tactical planning it appears that this first, of possibly many, of The Roving Chow Fests (oh yes, this could be a long and arduous campaign) will include engagements in the Donut front, a Pastrami sortie, a New York Pizza strike, a BBQ battle, a Dim Sum flanking manoeuver, and an Armenian infiltration.
Gear up, exercise those abs, make out your last will and testament, kiss the family and get ready to man your battlestations on June 1.
