  1. Aha! I’m not alone in my “two stomachs” theory…it’s totally true by the way–there’s always room for dessert.

  2. I always order the cheese that tastes most like cheese too. And the chocolate that tastes most like chocolate, and the mustard that tastes most like mustard….
    I love these eatsdroppers!

  3. Erin: It’s so true. Sometimes I think my dessert stomach is bigger than my savory stomach.
    Loulou: I think that’s a very good philosophy. Although, I recently had a sharp cheddar that had a curious peanut-butter-ish note that left me both confused and slightly intrigued. Still, I generally prefer things that taste like what they are. 🙂

  4. the waitress at Delfina told me I had an extra stomach for dessert last thursday. I didn’t realise its exitence was officially sanctioned until then

  5. Hi Guys,
    That Zuckerman Farmer is a grey-haired hottie! You ever seen him? Don’t get me started on him frying his asparagus in a hot sweaty booth. Too much for my faint heart to take. But seriously folks…I have a question: What do you know about Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group? They have several boutique hotels in SF and around the country. Very gay friendly, inside and out.
    Yours in Asparagus,

  6. What Sam says is true – I heard it myself. I’ve also been told that there’s always room for ice cream, because it fills in the cracks! 🙂
    BTW – Thanks for the link you guys – I don’t know how long it’s been here, but I just noticed the hits today!

  7. These are just great!
    There’s always room for dessert, especially when you’re priorities are in order.
    But the cheese thing? Hysterical.
    When I worked for Soyoung at the Andante booth people would say the most amazing things about cheese!

  8. Sam: Well it’s at least officially sanctioned in this forum. Can’t speak for the UN.
    Philsey: Hm, I’ll have to pay more attention. I’m usually so undercaffeinated when I am at the market, cruising is low priority. And as a former gay travel editor (i.e., editor on the subject of gay travel, not just a travel editor who happens to be gay), I can confirm that we heart the Kimpton Group!
    Alice: The ice cream-to-crack correlation goes deeper than that, I am sure. I’ve been following you for a while — my mother lives in San Diego. I’ll ping you next time we’re down.
    Shuna: One thing’s for sure — there’s *always* room for one of your desserts!

  9. Customer: What kind of chocolates should I get?
    Salesclerk: I don’t know.
    What kind do you like?
    Customer: I don’t know.
    Which are the best?
    Clerk: I don’t know what you’ll think are the best.
    Do you like nuts?
    Customer: What kind of nuts?
    Clerk: Well…how many do you want?
    Customer: I don’t know.
    How many do you think I should get?
