Pssst! Got a sec to chat?

We are utterly thrilled when readers want to hang out and talk – whether it's amongst themselves or in response to pieces we've posted. We want Eatocracy to be a cozy, spirited online home for those who find their way here.

Consider the daily Coffee klatsch post as your VIP lounge – the primary comments thread for readers who'd like to chat about topics not related to the articles we're running. That way, everyone knows where to find each other, and each post's comments section remains on topic.

BBQ, barbecue, bar-b-q, bar-b-cue, barbeque?

    I consider it a good thing in this economy to be working too much vs not at all, there is a bright side to everything

      You must have a mean IT person, I restrict alot of things that eat up bandwidth, but gmail, hotmail, yahoo mail, those are all pretty reasonable.

        January 26, 2011 at 6:20 pm |
      • MicheleG

        Sorry, I am baffled. Have no clue about what the deal is. Figured that as long as you can drop your cursor into the comment box you'd be good to go. Apologies!

        Rats, again!

        January 26, 2011 at 6:22 pm |
      • MicheleG

        If its asking you to "comment as" I'd ignore it and let it default to whatever it wants....otherwise I'm stuck.

      • MT Miner

        If you have a gmail account, pick google and use that email address(from teh other IT person around here.....)

        January 26, 2011 at 6:27 pm |
      • JiainaJade@wendy

        if you don't have a gmail account you can comment Anon but only if the blog allows anon comments. You can also use wordpress IDs or an Open ID. If you don't have gmail it's free to sign up, just go to

    Local radio traffic report. " There are to many incidents to mention. If you are on the road then you are in bumper to bumper traffic."

      Hence my intense loathing for large cities. Traffic. Barf.

    I'll never think of the "F" word the same again after the hater article....

      A literary masterpiece using the words Frog-Humping menus and foodie in the same paragraph.. He's good.

      January 26, 2011 at 5:11 pm |
      • MT Miner

        to quote tazers quoted quote..."get weak little culinary boners over year-dead trends, focused-grouped Frog-humping menus"

        The first 5 words, it was real LOL. Then the true twisted mind kicked in and I pictured body shots, whipped cream, and strawberrys. Haven't figured out what to make for dinner tonight anyhow, maybe it's wife buffet night, i dunno....

        January 26, 2011 at 5:17 pm |
      • MicheleG

        Agree. My boyfriend once invited me to have some chocolate, as a treat on him. ON him.......

        January 26, 2011 at 5:19 pm |
      • MT Miner

        I will have to remember that "treat on me" line
