When’s the Next Dinner?
Hey and Hi —
Whether you’re a longtime rogueApron supporter or you just caught wind of us via some nice press writeup, you likely share the same question: “When is the next dinner?”
I know! It’s been a while, and I feel bad because in a lot of ways I’ve kept saying “dinners are monthly” long after they stopped being monthly.
The food world has changed significantly since I cooked up the underground supperclub idea about three years back. At the time, I was recovering from an unwanted downsizing, running out of unemployment benefits, and really wondering when in the hell my luck was going to change. I used my very last check to float the funds for the first rogueApron dinner – a day after the tornado hit back in 2008 – and was so, so excited that we had 30 guests! Some of whom were strangers!
rogueApron grew faster than I could have imagined, with people popping out of the woodwork to volunteer. Tickets to events sold out in 8 minutes flat … it was surreal, flattering, and completely intoxicating. Today our mailing list is at an astonishing [LOOK -->] people long – the number still boggles my mind.
The food landscape in Atlanta has changed beyond recognition in the past few years – farm to table restaurants pop up left and right, while food trucks take to the streets and professionals turn to underground restaurants in order to make a name for themselves. Heck, even cable news networks throw mystery dinners!
Some days I wonder if rogueApron should be brought back to life.
And then I spot a super cool recipe and think to myself … YES!
Thanks for your patience all! Graduation is in MAY!!
