You know what one of the worst things about being a reporter is? Being told about some big story - but being asked not to report it until things have been "finalized" - and then seeing the story in the Daily News.
It happens all the time!
Damn paper of record ... ! Oh, I'm just kidding - it's the nature of the biz. Doesn't make it any less aggravating, though.
How the hell has everyone been? I've been really, really busy. I talked earlier today with Ted Epstein, who's opening the BBQ place on State St. Wow, my mouth is still watering ... no BBQ chicken on the regular menu, though. I once drove many miles (in Michigan) to have some BBQ chicken.
Something that won't be in my story: he is doing St. Louis ribs, which are bigger than baby back but smaller than Memphis ribs (which Epstein said are Fred Flintstone sized). Mmmmmm, ribs.
I can't wait 'til it opens. He said he was surprised how excited people here get about food ... which was not a surprise to me!
Mmmmmm, ribs ...
