What I Had for Linner: Electric Artists

Well, it's the holiday season, so there are many parties to attend and just last week I got an invitation to join some co-workers at a casual foodie affair, my kinda stuff. I love a holiday party because it means eating among friends, but even better when it's a relaxed event. This was thrown by Electric Artists and they had several food purveyors there with plenty of good stuff to eat. After I got something to drink I headed across the room towards the food. When the food is good, everyone is standing around it, that was the case here and on the way through the crowd guarding the food, I stopped to talk to some people and ran into Howie. Here we are ...
He came by to welcome me to the event and make an introduction. Howie is the SVP of Electric Artists and he's a foodie that watches Food Network. I told him about my blog and we snapped away, sorry it's blurry. Seconds after we took this picture some of my co-workers came by on the way to the food and I was reminded what I was there to do ... eat! I'd already done a bit of research on the way in and everyone was talking about the lobster roll from Bklyn Larder and it looked yummy ...
Can you see it? A side note, you know sometimes I take pictures at corny times in the hopes of sharing them here, tonight I wasn't going to take any and then I saw a press photog there and thought, well one more flash won't hurt :-). Anyway, I am also sharing because as I took that picture above, over my shoulder is what I would eventually have for Linner. It would also remind me to update you on one of my foodie journeys ...
I had a little something from Bark Hot Dogs. I got a Bark Dog, with sweet peppers, relish, mustard and onion. Here's Clarissa serving it up ...
She was working hard, and if you'll notice I said a little something, because like before ... the serving size was only part of a hot dog :-( . That's the thing. I guess you can't really stand there and eat a whole one in a cocktail setting, but boy did I want to. It was yummy! Really good pop when I bit into it, for the hot dog lovers out there. As soon as I polished it off, I was reminded of my last great hot dog and remembered that I forgot to share that here and intended to. I took a poll about hot dogs and shortly after that I took a trip to one of the cities I had yet to sample a local dog from and had a great experience. Stick around and I'll share some flicks from that trip ... and if you live close to this place, I'm jealous.

I don't know about the dogs, but that lobster roll looks sooooo good even at 7 a.m.!! We don't have lobster rolls down here on coastal Mississippi!! Maybe a crawfish roll, or a shrimp or crab roll, but no lobster in the Gulf of Mexico! One of these days I'm gonna come up and get a proper lobster roll! And a hot dog or two - full sized. :)
