This blog has proven that I have a disposition to over indulge. It’s a problem and a constant battle between my brain and my waistline. I rationalize my decisions to stuff myself with the idea that the opportunity at hand is unique and once in a lifetime. This is rarely the truth but often the perceived reality. Regardless of the motivation, this post trumps all the others in ridiculousness.
I had just flown back in town from Chicago and two friends from San Francisco when a txt message popped up on my phone. Two buddies from San Francisco were in town and wanted to go run-a-muk stuffing our faces all over town. Truth be told, Ben, Chef of SPICE Supper Club, had been riding me for weeks about the “eating tour” and now he was ready to roll. Irrationally deciding I had to go I hopped on the L-train and headed into Manhattan.

As the clock ticked past 1am, me stomach and brain were finally in agreement. “Stop eating” was the simple message and I obliged. We had successfully pecked our way around downtown Manhattan gobbling up goodness at most every turn. Looking back, I can’t say I did the wrong thing. After all it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Right?
