Planning on going out to dinner tomorrow night? DON’T. Because if you go out to dinner, you eat dinner for a night. But if you are taught how to get paid to write about going out to dinner, you eat dinner for a lifetime, often on an expense account.
So I urge you to spend your evening tomorrow at this panel, about the ins and outs of culinary journalism, offered by FishbowlLA sponsor mediabistro. Speakers will include Leslie Brenner (food editor, LAT), Laurie Buckle (ME, Bon Appetit), Monica Gullon (senior editor, Shape) and Norman Kolpas, who ghostwrites for Wolfgang Puck. And there will be cocktails afterward! Come for the useful information, stay for the drinks. Then, stay even longer, for more drinks. Then, hail a cab, because you shouldn’t drive home in that condition.
