"The best laid schemes of mice and men / Often go awry." We've had to cancel this event due to some unforeseen circumstances. In other words, we jumped the gun a bit on this one. We are still fully committed to supporting Second Harvest and the NFL Kick Hunger Challenge (which we plan on winning!). Stay tuned for details and thank you for the support!
Thanks for the kind words, Lesley!
Naming a restaurant is about as easy as naming a band or a kid: you can find a rhyme, secondary connotation, etc. for just about everything (there's a great SNL skit with Tom Hanks about naming a kid). Anyway, the restaurant was originally called "echo". However, a rather large resort owned the rights to that one so we were back to square one. Deb writes her menus the old-fashioned way, pencil and paper, and she tends to draw/doodle while writing out ideas. One day it crossed her mind that a particularly scribbled-on page kinda looked like an etching. Hence, "etch".
We were worried that it sounded too much like itch. Wretch, kvetch, fetch all came later. Hadn't thought of "blech". But, we like the name (I guess I should disclose that I am one of Deb's partners in the restaurant). And if you are ever eating at the chef's bar and glance on a countertop right behind it, you will probably see a big stack of random pieces of paper with said doodles and recipes scribbled all over them. Please don't take them. We haven't backed them up, yet.
That's really cool.
Haven't had the burger at Fido or Burger Up. So I will say Gabby'sGabby'sGabby's. Love that place.
Very cool. We will have it on tap asap.
Is there a cool place to stay overnight on the mountain?
