INAUGURATION NATION, YO.
I’m blogging at the speed of lightening because it’s like 3 seconds until inauguration weekend starts to kick my skinny b*tt and I need to be flipping burgers not writing blogs. Even tho blogging is a blast… and I get far less dirty doing it! So where do I begin. From now until Wednesday, here’s a small taste of the insanity, otherwise known as my to-do list:
1- Feed the billions of hungry, Obama fans who will be walking by Good Stuff, or intentionally stopping by thanks to all the buzz circling around town. We extended our hours, edited our menu and are ready to rock ‘n roll. Actually, BA'RACK 'n roll.The customer energy is incredible, my staff is all pumped up, and honestly the fun hasn’t even begun!
2- My life is 90% chaotic kitchen, 10% red carpet. If I can manage to escape Good Stuff, and I’m not sure I”ll even want to, I’ve got a few awesome events lined up. There’s a “Declare Yourself” party hosted by Jessica Alba…yeah, I know..speaking of sizzling! And also Maroon Five is playing and a bunch of other people that I should recognize but don’t. The dress code is “celebrity-chic” which means, well, I have no clue. Thank god for the nosy women in my life - my wardrobe is one thing I don’t mind them controlling! After that we’re all going to strip down to our PJs and hit the Obama Pajama Party, which sounds sweeeeeet for two reasons - I get to wear my favorite ‘jammies, AND Marisa Tomei will be there in hers. Need I go on?
3- In the middle of all this, I’m shooting a bunch of TV shows, morning shows and such. I’m afraid to jinx myself and say the names yet. But let me just say- they are BIG. And, they are EARLY. Where’s my espresso, Katie Couric?!
4- Let’s just add a paragraph for all the people I know heading to DC this weekend! I wouldn’t change it for the world but I’m literally running out of seconds in the day! Hopefully everyone will understand when I give them a delicious burger, a juicy kiss, and then…. peace out.
5- The grand finale is my BURGER BALL on Tuesday night. Forget the tuxes and the pretentious schmoozing, I’m all about a night of FUN to celebrate this sensational moment in history. You know me, I’m laid-back, so I created a celebration that’s more about good people and great vibes, not the uptight, upscale stuff. I’ve heard Constantine from American Idol is coming and something about The Counting Crows, but I leave that to my PR peeps. All I know is that surviving this week, not to mention the Inauguration of the most inspiring man alive, gives me plenty of reason to revel in pure, uncensored, unrehearsed, forever awesomeness.
Gotta get back to the kitchen.
Love n Bacon,
