The Eatsdropper wouldn’t know arugula from Aunt Sylvia

A small change some regular visitors may have noticed: In the upper right corner, I’ve added a Twitter feed. So if you want to know what I and some 50 other food bloggers and other associates are doing right now, you can have almost psychic insight into our quotidian comings and goings. Speaking of psychic insight, keep sending me other people’s inane natter to eatsdropper-at-seantimberlake-dot-com.


Small fry to her similiarily sized friend:
"Do you like salad? Yes or no."

Middle aged woman to waiter/bartender when presented with coffee in a silver French press:
    "How are you supposed to tell that it’s ready?"

Waiter/bartender laughing to Middle Age Man to after his obviously drunk girlfriend went to the restroom:

    "Whattya think? Should we get her liquored up?"

Same couple moments later,
man to date:


    "I’ll get the Chimay Rouge. Then I can cross it off my list."

40s-ish man: "I wouldn’t know arugula from Aunt Sylvia"

– Eatsdropped by Jen at the Marin Farmers Market

Woman, unclear on the taqueria concept, faced with line flowing out the door:
    "Where’s the line to put your name in for a table?"
Then, on phone with friend:
    "So this place isn’t a restaurant. I mean, it is, but it’s the kind of place where you order food at a counter and then get a table if there is one."
