The Eatsdropper has the third sense

Still swamped, still dreaming of that dinner party we had almost two months ago. Between crazy work projects and trips to San Diego, Palm Springs, Chicago and Orange County, we’ve barely had time to breathe, much less cook or (heavens forfend) entertain. That said, we did manage to squeeze in one wee dinner party to celebrate the waning days of summer, and had one notable success: A soup-slash-aperitif made from heirloom tomato water, muddled basil, chipotle vodka, Vya sweet vermouth and a drool of very good olive oil. Maybe next year I’ll give it a proper writeup.

Lucky for me, there are still plenty of people with good ears (or bad boundaries) out there willing to share their overheard goods with me. Won’t you be my nosy neighbor? Send in your tidbits in to eatsdropper-at-seantimberlake-dot-com.

Woman 1:
What if that’s our table?
(Hostess seats another couple instead)
Woman 2: I knew it wasn’t. I always have third sense.

    "So, at night they mainly serve Vietnamese?"
Man, grinning:
    "Oh, I’m pretty sure they’ll serve anyone."

  1. How did you resist titling this post “The Eatsdropper will have a fellatio, please”? 🙂
    The soup/aperitif sounds delish.

  2. Of course that’s what I wanted to call it … but among my regular readers is my nonagenarian great uncle, so I thought it prudent to at least bury it down a little. 🙂

  3. Monsoon! I ate there when it first opened and really enjoyed it, especially the clean design, which at the time made it among the first in Seattle. I’m so glad to hear it’s still going strong after over 8 years.

  4. I just LOVE your eatsdropping segments – so original! I wish I heard some of these hilarious things in person. And yea, that fellatio one is just too good to be true…

  5. You are KILLING me! I am laughing out loud over here. Good God! I would have paid money to see the look on the vendor’s face when the customer asked for oral sex!!!!
