Thank You!

There must be something in the air, because I have been a sentimental dork to the umpteenth degree lately. The incessant use of ♥ symbols on Facebook, the non-stop verbal affection for friends and strangers alike, I have become a walking-talking pile of mushy goo! 

I started this endeavour as a way to flex my creative writing muscles and to pay homage to great food. I don't have any advertising on the site, so I'm not getting compensated for any of my work (except for the occasional comp'd meal, but that is official business). Over the past six months, DC Gluttony has gathered over forty (hopefully more!) fans on Facebook and has become a Top 20 Food Site on Urbanspoon, with there being over 5200 views at last check! Never in my wildest dreams did I expect any of this, and I am truly humbled.

With DC Gluttony, I feel like I have found something that I am truly passionate about. Food brings me back to some of the best times of my life, with some of the best people I know, and I love that I can share this with others. I easily transport myself back to those memorable food experiences, and if I close my eyes, I can smell and taste the food! My first nibble of foie gras? Tabard Inn in Dupont Circle, while visiting DC for the first time. My favourite cheesesteak? No question, it's Pat's from South Philly, while hanging out with X-Games BMX bikers. Best omakase-style meal? The Komi Degustazione with DC. Fave dessert moment? Eating Klondike bars with my grandfather.

So for those of you who follow my food adventures here on DC Gluttony, thank you! I eat and write for you just as much as I do for myself. I hope that in the few minutes you have taken to read about my life's love affair with food, I have imparted a little bit of insight and a lot of humour in yours. ♥
