Send me your memories
Lissa's mini-review of her recent meal at Rehoboth Beach reminded me that I want to ask anyone who wants to participate to write a guest post for Beach Week. If you have a photo as well, all the better, but you don't have to. The main requirement is that they be about beach food, the second that they be short.
It could be an observation, a memory about beach food, good or bad, or a mini-review like Lissa's. In fact, if I had caught hers in time I wouldn't have published it as a comment, but used it for an entry. ...
I know many of you are shy about your writing or critical skills. (OK, or lazy.) But I want some guest posts because the only time I go to the beach is when the Sun sends me. I'm talking to you, Dahlink. And you, Robert of Cross Keys. And you, Laura Lee. And, of course, you, Sunshine Kid, Chowsearch, ATigerintheKitchen and Pigtown. And any of the rest of you who wants to give it a try. If you're uncomfortable about using your real name, or even your blog user name, make up another one.
Is there any restaurant owner out there who wants to tell us about his or her favorite restaurant at the beach and why? Free publicity for your own restaurant.
Just e-mail your mini-review, memory or observation about beach food to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Put something like "Beach Week entry" in the subject line.
I promise other readers will be kind. And it would be great
for me to do nothing for Beach Week but lie in a deck chair eating bonbons and reading trashy novels to have lots of different voices and lots of posts for Beach Week, which I'm now thinking should start June 14 or June 15.
