I'm off to the Tasty Dog & Pony Show
up in San Francisco. I'll leave Friday evening..sleep all the way up..wake up at the Ferry Building Saturday morning and then, off to register officially, throw my things into the postage stamp size room and then...who knows. The Bridge? Golden Gate Park? The Palace of Fine Arts? Sunday...it's all about the Trade Show.
You know, of course, I've already done my OpenTable.com trolling.
I'll leave you with this "hot off the food presses" piece of news to savor.

McCormick predicts these trendy flavor pairings — spanning sweet, hot, tangy, bitter, sour and everything in between — will be influencing the foods eaten this year and in the future.I'll see if I can stop in and do a post right after the show to share anything mindboggling or palate popping. San Francisco....HERE I COME! (right back where I started from)
...The following is their top 10 list of flavors:
