Trillin on Argyle

pdaane | Jun 9, 200301:39 PM

I was disappointed as I am sure any of you were who headed to Argyle for the Taste of Argyle this weekend. I even asked by buddy to re-read one of the small yellow posters, to make sure I was not confused about date/times. I was not. Perhaps they are missing a driving force to pull all of the businesses together.

This morning I stopped at Chui Quon for a ham and egg bun. Two people were sampling some of the goods and one of them had Calvin Trillin's new book on the table, which I did recognize. However, I didn't recognize that Calvin Trillin was sitting behind him. I did not speak to him, because he was talking with the owner and sampling a few dim sum. I did talk with the other couple and even brought up Chowhounds. Apparently the articles in Trib and Sun about Mr. Trillin's visits may mention Chowhounds.
