Foodbuzz had a community table on Monday, August 10, 2009 at Fishtail, a restaurant by David Burke. I was lucky enough to attend because the lovely and gracious Stacey from Stacey Snacks had dust in her eye or a hang nail or something and couldn't make it - no seriously, she had a little cold and did not want to sneeze on everyone so she let me have her seat. This whole getting a seat process was a lottery - you had to respond quickly and then you were selected from the respondents but, if you had a Visa Signature card you could attend as well. Visa Signature, Foodbuzz and Fishtail sponsored the event. Check your towns listing they might be having one near you.
I think you might remember how much I enjoyed David Burkes food the last time I went to one of his places- well this was no different. I am a fan!
Life is even more fantastic when you get to see everything through beverage goggles.
I ordered a small, but cute, armadillo for my appetizer. Kidding, I kid - it was octopus.
Cant say anything bad about these scallops - trust me I tried. As usual the food was great and I am impressed with the service no matter the style of the event. Check out these other blogs they went too and probably wrote about it better than I did.

If you can guess who this is I will send you a prize. In the event of multiple winners the prize will be hacked into the appropriate number of pieces and no one will get anything. The contest ends August 10, 2010! Good luck.
Thanks again Foodbuzz!
