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.

    Good morning all and Happy Thursday! Short week here, and an upcoming weekend that should be fun.

    How is everyone doing today?

      My apartment is flooded and ceiling caving in. So there's that.

        VERY sorry to hear. It is times like that though where it is so nice to be able to call a landlord and say "Deal with it!"

        Holy Plumbers Putty, Batman! Sorry to hear that, too. Do you know how it happened?

          The working theory is that it involved the rain and a chimney flue - though we're the ground floor of a four-story building.

        As I always tell my dispatcher..." I can't control the weather ". Get out the pots and pans you haven't used in years and Don't forget the Floaties for the Dogs. Tread water while you can.

      Sir Biddle, Sir Biddle, Sir Biddle. Just click your heels 3 times and that's all it takes.

      How is everyone? It appears the Klatch has withered, I'm at fault too.
