It's James Beard Award season in NYC, and everyone's frothy with excitement!
Last night, they handed out the media awards, and I'll tell you right now: I didn't win. But for us, the food-obsessed writers, it doesn't matter that it's a separate, lower budget, tech-services type presentation. I was following Slashfood on Twitter as it posted the winners in real-time tweets. The Food Section has the full list for easier perusal. Check out Eater for the after-party gabble.
Tonight is the sassier, classier book and restaurant awards presentation ( Adam is attending and will deliver a full post-mortem when he returns ). Are you wondering if any of the local boys will finally score some props? JBF will be live blogging, but you'll be able to find the info across the blogosphere.
Why not head over to La Belle Vie where like-minded foodies will be gathering in the lounge to celebrate/commiserate as the results are announced. Festivities begin around 5:30 p.m., and no matter the outcome, you'll be surrounded by more-than-worthy food and drink.
