Food critic Fox just stopped in. "What's up?" I asked. "I'm 'bout to try to fry an egg on the sidewalk," she said, with not a hint of sarcasm. For a woman who recently orchestrated a Diet Coke/Mentos explosion in the parking lot with an entire newspaper staff agog, this egg-frying stuff is just all in a day's work. She was eating her lunch too: Kroger brand Lacey Swiss cheese and Milano salami—straight out of the plastic packages.
Maybe there will be a cold-cut review in next week's Scene
. And we'll keep you posted 'bout the egg too.
