Do you guys know about this yet? I urge you to go. Mike Thiemann is teaming up with Verge and Edible Mag, with the generous support of the Selland family to serve a wild dinner that is going to based around a 60s TV vibe. The dinner will be based on TV dinners and will include multiple courses and cocktails mixed by Chris Dolley, Ella's bartender. TV dinners became my family's jam when the coherence of the family unit was disintegrating (my teen years) so I have pretty strong memories of them and associate them with sadness. They are pretty much sadness in a tray. Add to that my chubbiness and my savoring of the mac and cheese and apple crisp portions to get a clear picture. Come to think of it, I'm eating an Amy's organic lunch in my jail cell-like breakroom today so perhaps I have not come so far after all.
P.S.-there's a visiting scholar from Brazil at my work today who taught himself to speak English from watching Friends. He keep calling me Smelly Cat.
