Well, I admit, I have the Bourdain bug pretty bad...I am a total groupie. Just bought his new book and have really enjoyed it so far--both writing style and content.
Some of you may know that he did a demonstration and signing at Sur La Table on the Row in SJ today at noon. I was excited to go...no schedule conflicts...called to RSVP...got the book...and then, oh no, THE RAIN!! I didn't think that rain, snow, or earthquake would really stop me, but living in Santa Cruz, I'd have to negotiate that dreaded 17 in bad weather. Ugh--in the end I chickened out and was ultimately ok w/ my decision since it kept pouring in SC. But, I'd love to hear from anyone who did go--what did I miss?
