To Quote DrunkBrunch, "La Cena Buena"

I joined fellow bloggers for another NYC Restaurant Week Winter 2008 hoedown last night. Still reeling from my crazy day in the office, I tried my best to remain calm when I really wanted to call all of my family members and best friends and jump around in the street on my cell phone.

We met at Rosa Mexicano for what DrunkBrunch has already dubbed "La Cena Bena" on her blog. She has a pretty good summary of the evening so if anyone wants to read about it, I'll let her tell it. And posts like this are why I love FeistyRed - oh, and this, and this, and this.
And this, too. And this. And I'm done for now ... after this.

I will, however, include the camera phone photo ops of my own food.

Which in typical Katie fashion, I began to devour before I remembered to take a picture of it and before I subsequently inhaled it and began picking at the desserts of my blogger friends. This is also a good place to mention that the quote selected for me by my sorority sisters in college was: “Hey … are you going to eat that?”

I love NYC Restaurant Week!

Hey, I live near a Rosa Mexicano, and I'm kind of embarrassed to admit I've never been to it. Is it true they mash the guacamole right at your table?

Hey, BNY!

I've been a regular reader of your blog since I started my own crazy moving-to-new-york journey last fall. I have to say it's really helped me keep my spirits up in spite of the hard times, and thank you so much for it!

Things have been going okay for me until this week when my temp agency ran out of work for me... I was working with Gainor (formerly the Laury Group). I'm looking to get in with a different agency now, and I was just wondering, what agency was it that you started out with? It seems like you had a good experience with them...

If you've got time, I'd appreciate a response! You can just follow-up comment or get in touch with me through the email address on my profile...

And again, thanks for your awesome blog!

Kelly, I'll be in touch!

Teahouse, it is true! And it's delicious!

Miss Adventurous, the temp agency I went through in 2006 is called Forrest Solutions.
