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 weekly 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. You can always find it from the link in the left rail, or by bookmarking

    Guess what came in the mail today? Ticketmaster. Volbeat Ft Trivium and Digital Summer

      Due to unusually high audience apathy, the remaining date of the current Volbeat tour have been cancelled. In lieu of refunds, ticketholders will be provided with tickets to an equivalent show. Current Volbeat ticketholders will be granted admission to Miley Cyrus' "Twerking Forever" tour. Enjoy the show!

      Eatocracy doesn't display my comments at random times, so it's useless trying to post sometimes. Been running into that a lot the last few days. Been reading, can barely post. Only happens at work.

        Huh, weird. I've only had that happen once or twice, but I hit refresh and the comment shows up. And I always post at work.

          Ditto. However there was an update recently. Some of the longer comments sections are now broken down into X number of pages.

          Don't post from home too often. It's being nice to me so far today.

          Too bad, I had some good ones for the Klingon thread. Not going to type them again, moment has passed

        Try hitting refresh. As long as you are not getting the moderation message, it should show right away...

    Oprah Winfrey has announced an eight city tour, where she will give lectures to her throngs of adoring fans. Ticket prices start over $100 and go all the way to $1,000.00. When asked why the tickets were so high, Oprah responded "So you get ripped off, and you get ripped off, and you get ripped off..."

    You may now return to your regularly scheduled Eatocracy...

    Good morning. We only got a lot of wind from the nor-easter, thoughts to Sir B and anyone in the path, including the folks on Cape Cod who are really having a rough seas time this morning. Also, although we haven't mentioned it this week, thoughts go out to anyone in WA state and hope our friends there are safe as well.

    Have a wacky Wednesday!!

      Thanks for the thoughts. Although I'm about 30 miles away, it's been devastating for the folks in Oso and their families/friends. Unfortunately, it's becoming more of a recovery operation.

    Who peed in Mother Nature's coffee this year? We are currently in a whiteout and getting about 3-5 inches of snow in DC currently. I want to put my garden in this weekend, put the new grill together, and generally be able to walk outside with a lite jacket.

    Happy Tuesday!

    Good morning! Chilly here today, 24 degrees and surprise, expecting snow again! Probably not much right in my area, more to the south. I really hope this is the very last snow of the season...fingers crossed.

    Anything new?

    Y'all, did I tell you I got a book deal?

      Congrats. Penthouse Letter with a food spin?

      March 24, 2014 at 12:08 pm |
      • Kat Kinsman

        Hee! Actually not about food at all. It's called "Hi, Anxiety" and will come out on Harper Collins' Dey Street Books. It's, shockingly enough, about women and anxiety.

        • Sir Biddle

          Penthouse Letters aside, congrats either way. Great news and I'm sure the book is helping you on the topic but if it helps others than I am behind you all the way even more.

          Come to DC for the book tour!
