Pssst! Got a sec to chat?

We are utterly thrilled when readers want to hang out and talk – whether it's amongst themselves or in response to pieces we've posted. We want Eatocracy to be a cozy, spirited online home for those who find their way here.

Consider the daily Coffee Klatsch post as your VIP lounge – the primary comments thread for readers who'd like to chat about topics not related to the articles we're running. That way, everyone knows where to find each other, and each post's comments section remains on topic.

      Had to get um, grounded after I read that. I've always wanted a job in Washington. I just don't want the Feds checking on my references though.

    I just watched my dog chase its tail for 5 minutes and I thought, "Dogs are easily entertained."
    Then I thought, "I was just watching my dog chase its tail for 5 minutes ... " o_0

      I am sure my cat thinks the same thing every day when I leave for work, come home from work, go to sleep, go to work, come home from work, go to sleep...

      I wonder if the dog thinks "gee I have to do this because she likes to watch it, otherwise I would just go sit down for a while"... Odie will sit and stare out into space not looking at anything (when his eyes are open) for no reason at all...never could figure that one out.

    Good afternoon all, and happy Friday!
    We have GOT to get better soundproofing here in the Klatch. The noise from the Chic-Fil-A thread is getting out of hand...

        No #2? Must be a cock fight going on over there (go ahead moderators, nothing bad said here).

    T-G-I-F! I sooo thought it was Friday yesterday, then driving in today there was little to no traffic (very odd for So Cal), so I thought I was going to the office on a Saturday, but no...full house here today. I'm so confused...

    79 degrees yesterday, 78 today! Sorry Jdizz and others in the most freezingest climates, but this is what it is, glorious warmth.

    Good morning on this chilly, windy Friday. Yes, AleeD, the comments are flying so I had to respond to one, I just couldn't resist.

    Here's hoping for a super weekend for everyone, safe and fun. Depending on how the game is going I tend to leave wherever I am at the end of the 3rd quarter so I avoid anyone who partied too much and drove anyway. We had a case here a few years ago where a woman killed herself and a woman in an approaching vehicle on SB Sunday, so I'm particularly conscious of it. So, stay safe all.

    " If you know what's good for you....YOU will cheer for the Ravens on Sunday-just sayin'"

      I have a feeling the Niners are gonna SMOKE the Ravens. For some reason the Ravens seem to be getting a boatload of press (probably because of Ray Lewis) and a lot of people seem to equate that to a Ravens win.

      A lot of people are going to be in awe of a certain red and gold team on Sunday.

        Smoked Raven, eh? Do you serve that with rice or potatoes?

          Hopefully not with a side of crow.

        Its National Cherry Pie Day. While I doubt he is Jewish, its a high holiday for him. The highest possible maybe.

        I like pie!

        • AleeD®

          Ah. I see. :) I wonder how many of those particular kinds of pies he's had in his life. ~_~
          I'm partial to snausages, myself.
