TableTopics Giveaway Winners!

Congratulations to our randomly picked winners in the TableTopics Giveaway - Jenny Jambrosek and Amanda Gilmore!  Both entered via Twitter.  Your party cube will be sent out this week!

Those of you who entered via blog comment left some great conversation starter questions, so I'm going to answer a few...

Kate asks: "When and where was your favorite meal?"
I don't know if I could pick just one favorite.  Some of the most memorable have been: at a now-forgotten bistro on a rainy evening in Paris - August 1999, the 20-course molecular gastronomy marathon at Moto in Chicago - April 2007, and the seafood stew at Como Agua Para Chocolat in Santiago, Chile - September 2009.

Tori asks: "If you could have any job in the world (and $ was not a factor), what would it be and why?"
Well, the truth is I love writing Second City Soiree and some of the related work that comes with it.  I suppose if I could incorporate a bit of travel to fun destinations it would then be the perfect job!

Jenny asks: "If were stuck on an island (given that food and drinks are available on the island) name 5 items you would bring with you?"
1) a book of scientific knowledge (biology, chemistry, engineering), 2) a very good knife, 3) an enormously large quilt, 4) lots of matches in a waterproof container  5) a fully-charged satellite phone so someone could come rescue me so I wouldn't have to use any of that stuff. :)   (although I do wonder about the chain of phone calls that would have to happen: "Hi, honey? Yeah I'm on an island. No, I don't know where. No, it's uninhabited. Look, can you just send someone to come get me? I don't know...the coast guard? Ok then, the navy. Um, maybe start with the local recruiting office?")

Thanks, for the questions, and thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway!
