Plugs and Promotions

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Okay, this is a shameless post. I’m plugging two things. One is for this week only in New York City. The other is for anyone with an internet connection. So if you’re reading this post, it means you can participate.

First, all about me. I’m hosting an event Tuesday-Friday in Central Park. It’s called Casa Barilla and as the name suggests, it’s all about pasta. The Barilla Family still runs the company, located in Parma, Italy. They decided to set up shop for four days in Central Park. There will be some amazing chefs there, both from Italy and the US, giving cooking tips, teaching the art of olive oil, wine pairing, you name it. Oh, and free food. I’ll be on the main stage with the chefs, narrating and chatting with the audience while they cook. Look for the big pregnant lady shoving food in her face. That’s me. The event is huge. I’m just one small part of it. Admission is $5.00 and proceeds go to the NYC Food Bank.  Come visit!

Second Plug/Promotion: The Parents Best Blog Awards. You guys read blogs. I know you do because you’re reading mine right now. So go on the site and nominate your favorite ones, and vote for the ones already there. I’d love to say, “vote for me!” but I can’t. We Parents bloggers are excluded from entering. The website is: To nominate a site, just enter the site’s name, URL, a brief description of why you love it and indicate which category it best belongs in. It’s that easy.

Okay, that’s all the self promotion for now. Off to eat.
