It was a perfect meal amongst really pleasant company. Name dropping would be… perfect right now. I sat with a bunch of comic book artists two of which were Charlie Adlard of Walking Dead fame and Paul Horn creator of Cool Jerk. I also had the pleasure of dining with Chris Hardwick from the Nerdist podcast and MTV of my youth and NFLer and Travel Channel star Dhani Jones and their friends. Famous or not these were the nicest most engaging people and brave too. You see I came loaded with the special BDW Serrano Cocktail Spice I have been working on and by the end of the night most of them had put some in their beer. I knew Dos Equis would be a perfect foil for my Serrano. People were letting me spike their drinks like they knew me. It was so cool.
Darlene, a local food blogger at My Burning Kitchen and friend, recommended me to the organizers which secured me an invite to this great event. It pays to have friends with connections. She also took most of these pictures.
