Back in February 2010, Adam and Ethan started going to lunch on a weekly basis. From the start, Adam had a fun idea: that we not repeat a restaurant. Predictably for the two of us, we made it a game. Who would take us to a place where we had already been, and lose the game? We took turns buying, with the buyer choosing the eatery. This kept us to a reasonable budget, because if someone chose a $$$$ place, he was buying.
Ethan probably lost the game, by any objective standard. He suggested Nonna’s, because he couldn’t remember having eaten there, and Adam did. We ended up going somewhere else that day, but the damage was done.
Somewhere in the last 7 months, Allison (Ethan’s wife) suggested that we should have been blogging these lunches. So here we are. A fresh new wordpress install and a reset on the game. (Which means we get to go back to Anokha. And soon.)
A new blog and a new year, to celebrate Autumn, our favorite season and also the most recent calendar event we can use as an excuse for the reset. Fifty-two weeks. One of us will buy, the other will review, and you can follow along if you choose. Chime in.
