It’s not a question, it’s a statement. You WOULD like to know.
I’ve been pondering some new content for TNS. You know, to make it more of a hip, happening place where the kids will want to hang out when they’re not at the sock hop or the weenie roast.* The Smackdown will always be the heart and soul, but I’m going to start adding some shorter daily content as well.
One of the new features I’m planning is 30-second, 5-question Q&As with foodie-type people – restaurant owners, chefs, bartenders, bloggers, the donut cart guy around the corner, and the like; I think I have enough contacts to shamelessly exploit that I can get to some pretty interesting people. I already have some of the questions mapped out but wanted your input (this means you too, lurkers). So:
- Is this something you’d even be interested in reading, or are you a sociopath who is oblivious to the interests and needs of others?
- If so, what would you want to know? If you bumped into Thomas Keller on the street and he had time to answer one question for you, what would you ask?**
ALSO: FIRST THURSDAY IS NEXT WEEK, PEOPLE. I could NOT have made it any easier for you, as it’s Labor Day here in the U.S. and the theme is “the grill.” Fire it up, boys and girls.
** Note: “The fuck?” does not count as a valid question. And NO, that’s not one of the questions I already have lined up.
