Waiting for the war to start…

Posted by Cindy on September 19th, 2010

I just got back from getting a rooibos london fog (sans vanilla) and a bagel at Credo to tide me over until Food Wars starts.

They’re really great there and have provided much-need coffee support to the festival. Plus, their latte foam is completely unparalleled!

There are so many people in the gallery today! All of the artists have gotten to know each other, and the staff and volunteers. We’re all one big family now, and people are starting to feel like it’s all coming to an end already.

I’m going to go jump in to the socializing now, and shut the laptop for a while.

Hunger wars!

So now I’m deadly hungry and it’s getting late. I spent the morning in my hotel room writing and I really don’t want to be late for today’s Food Wars performance by Manolo Lugo and Naufús Ramirez-Figueroa, though I anticipate it’ll be quite late getting started. I want to settle in and really soak up the surroundings, not to mention getting a good seat!

I’m going to head over to Credo before going to the gallery, though. I haven’t made time to go there yet but as they’re one of the festival’s sponsors, I’m already a big fan!

Alison Reiko Loader moved in to my hotel room today, which means that Randy Lee Cutler‘s on her way out of town. Hopefully I’ll have a chance to talk with her a bit more this afternoon before she leaves; there are still things I want to ask her about salt!
