I’ve known about this since summer and as soon as I got the email I got tickets for it.. one for me and another for whoever was cool enough to go with me ;D
After registering in….Up up up to the 61st floor…
Still a little emptyyyy…
Then we headed over to the cheese table… so as I’m gnawing on some delicious crunchy aged smoked gouda… who do I see?!… HOLY FUDGECAKES.. the guy I’ve had a crush on since middle school…. srsly… I was in my early teens and I had a thing for an older, tall, lanky guy who smoked, swore a lot and was a dick… but in the most awesome attractive way..
Enter Anthony Bourdain…
Never in my life have I ever been so star struck. I couldn’t breath, I was getting all hot in the face and my knees/legs were giving out….
Serina + Bri found me amongst the crowd [maybe cuz I was the pretty much the only person wearing something NOT black] we chatted and snacked [and drank] for awhile.. the boys talked while the girls girl talked ;D
Then they opened the orange curtains and we walked into the main event…
I was too entranced by awesome people and awesome eats… one of my favorite was a black pudding… a meaty little pie that was flakey and buttery.. the meat was a little dry but only because all the fat had gone to the bottom of the tart :]
And then I met the COOLEST guy of the night…
MUTHA-FUGGIN TED ALLEN
I spotted him from across the event and ran over.. sure enough Sarina & Bri were already there :D Great minds think alike.. OMG, had the best conversation with him.. and later he had to get called up on stage.. he told us to come up with him :] COOLEST DOOD EVERRRRR
We so sexayyyyyyy <3
To the left to the left, EMERIL *freak out*
To the right, to the right, Bourdain, Ted, etc.. etc….
I told MARIO he was freaking OG <3
I think I told EMERIL that too.. altho Z and I overheard him complaining about camphones which made me a little nervous to ask for a picture “If cameras weren’t bad enough now they have camphones”… altho super funny.. Z was making fun of some lady and Emeril’s wife thought it was HER… LOL.. WHO btw, was a pretty smexy lady….
And yes that’s Anne B <3 Whom I love, but was kinda scattered [and perhaps drunkie] that night.. but she remembered me… but embarrassingly [on my part] enough thought Z was another guy :P
Waiting for more wine and champagne <3 I’m a lush and a girl of many weird faces, what can I say?! DEAL!
My lover Sarina and me :] Srsly, am I the only girl NOT in black?!?!?!
David Burke’s Lollipops <3 THE BEST, some of my FAV things ever.. totally getting more when I go to Chi in April <3
Freaking out cuz I see Casare Casella <3
Wanting to go gtalk to him but he’s getting interviewed… which is hilarious cuz I get caught in the foodbank video with me dancing with Cesare and being a weirdo in the background while he interviews ;D *nerd*

If you can find me [which isn't that hard] You can make funny of me ;D
THe most adorable guy EVER
He even let me smell his Rosemary in his pocket… ;D Naughty
Best pic of the night :] Brian is so AWESOME in this pic… and of course me and Sarina are fabulous [well she always is and I usually act a fool.. so a good pic for me - FINALLY]
