The Bruni Digest

In which I sit on a dirt mound somewhere in Brooklyn with my ears pricked, waiting for New York Times head restaurant critic Frank Bruni, who I imagine to be a Venetian count in a huge ruffled collar, to dole out stars from the inside breast pocket of his brocaded chamber robe. This blog is predicated on the suggestion that every Wednesday, in the Times Dining Out section, Frank lays a huge faberge egg of hilarity.

I am fiscally irresponsible, which means I have weak bones and a dorsal fin. And a penchant for dining out, even though I am, in the words of many rich people, a "poor people". I make a different face when speaking each of the foreign languages in which I am shittily proficient.

In the words of Dag Hammerskjold, "Peace Out, My N's!"

As long as Frank is spinning his crazy gold high in the turrets of the Dining Times, I will be the Rumplestiltsken drinking moonshine from a boot outside his castle and not knowing my own name. But beginning this summer, I'll be doing it from Chicago, instead of New York. My leaving town is a great excuse to host a comedy show with some of my favorite performers. Be you a one-time reader of the Bruni Digest, a loyal fan, or some pervert who googled "pussy" and landed on a Cats! image, please come check out the show, have a couple laughs and see me in my element, i.e., holding a tumbler and air-humping.

Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. We're so glad you could attend, come inside - come inside!
I want to go, but alas, cannot. I can only hope there be a broadcast or DVD of same.

Thank you!

But one thing: I'm moving to Chi-town permanently!!! That's why my departure merits such an insane farewell hootinanny (sp?)

You do realize that you are moving to a culinary backwater of a city that has just outlawed foie gras. What would Frank say!

Thankfully, I'll be in grad school, so shit-clawing penury would have ripped the foie out of my hands if litigation hadn't. That said, I think we can all agree that Chicago city hall made what Britney Spears would call a big "booboo."
