"G" is for Gratifying

So much of what has happened since the summer has been very gratifying for the two of us.  Isthmus readers voted us your second-favorite local content blog in the 2006 Favorites. We were featured in the newspaper (selling out, as it is sometimes called). We have had fabulous meals, some with people who are actually famous.  We have eaten many, many fine & filling meals and one that stank so bad that we gave it an F, which is its own first.

Our favorite G's:
Breakfast: Greenbush Bakery
Lunch: Gino's
Dinner: Greenbush Bar, Gaston's

There are lots of words we could say about the Extended Make-Up List™ - the 18 restaurants we have to tackle before we can even start on "H" - but those words are better left to political bloggers discussing the various failings of opposing-party  members.

We'll just say that living in a great city with a great variety of restaurants provides us with ample fodder for our blog.  We've decided this is less of a project and more of a lifestyle. Which is OK, because it's actually pretty fun.

Most of all, thanks to our readers; you, more than anything, make this experience gratifying.

You think the Extended Make-Up List demonstrates a dearth of intellectual curiosity and a surfeit of arrogance?

: ) Congrats on another letter! Grand Opera House, anyone?

I'm excited to read your posts about the restaurants in the Extended Make-up List.
