|This dish I made for The Windy City Times|
This week has been interesting. I've had several interviews and promotional opportunities. Windy City Times came over and is doing a piece called, A Gay In The Life, rock on. The Tribune called today to see what I had to say about strangers dining together. I said they're nuts and I wouldn't do it. No, actually, I said it's a study in socialization. I can see the anxiety on some people's faces when they walk in thinking, what did I get myself into but once the social lubrication slides into the blood stream it's all family, essentially. I don't think that's what I said but it was something like that. I told them I was amazed by the graciousness of my guests and that essentially people are lovely whether they are discussing the birthing process or how they wash their dogs, all of which I've heard. And I have a photo shoot with another publication on Monday and it's always interesting to me to see how it all works. I love press and social media. I guess the closest I've ever got to advertising has been working with promotional companies and/or making donations such as the one I made to Music of the Baroque and The Wonka Ball which is for About Face Theatre. Blogging, twitter, and facebook have all been really resourceful tools for me to connect to the community that likes what I do.
