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.

      I set appointments for a REALLY good health insurance agent (MINE!). I can work from home and totally avoid a nasty commute. "Like!"

    Good morning all! Sorry to hear about your snow, Mary. Around here, you never know when the white fluffy stuff will rear it's little head. We are actually going to get a little warm up. Going for probably our last bike ride this weekend, then putting them away for the winter. My brother-in-law has a heated garage, so all 3 of our bikes will be there for the winter. It's a beautiful thing! lol... Well, the coffee is on, and their is a big plate of fritters just waiting for you to grab. Have a great day all!

    Did you ever look at that non-RickRoll photo link on yesterday's Klatsch?

      Looked at it from the phone, since I thought it might be NSFW, but that is really not too far off thee mark. I walked through Civic Center Park on 4/20, and it is not much of an exaggeration...

    From Atlanta, Mary sorry to hear about the shoveling . Don't even have shovel.
    Being a tea drinker, I should hold out for the tea chat but I suspect I will need to move to England before that occurs.
    Overall, I think the press did a good job of reporting.the election. It is hard to fill all that vacant time and space with interesting news. I was watching on TV and kept switching channels. The funny thing was that some stations were on the money and others about an hour behind in results.Stayed up to 2:30am. Suffered next day:)
    Being an Obama supporter I was delighted with the results.
    I was just wondering why should I care that Khloe loves Sugar Daddies?

      Welcome. Atlanta's a fun town, just a little warm for me come summer. Some great dining too, just stay away from Rosebud. Unsanitary, and Eyster is something of a blowhard stooge:

        Any time I see that guy's name I always think of that 5@5 comment "Ron Eyesore". Anyone has to admit that was a funny nickname.

    Good snowy morning to everyone! I suspect that photo guy did not have to shovel 7 inches of snow this morning or he wouldn't have quite the smile he does now.

    Good morning all!

    How is everyone doing today. A GREAT morning in Denver, and just wanted to add that...

    Bankers ROCK!

    That is all. Coffee is somewhere, and there is stuff of some kind in the back. Or somewhere.
