If the blogging has been a bit intermittent this week, it's because I've again been busy writing words for The Man.
Today, I had a story about the cooks who grill behind the haulers at NASCAR events like tonight's Pepsi 400 race at the Daytona International Speedway. On Wednesday, I had a three-story package on NASCAR and food, including interviews with chef Mario Batali and "Big John" Youk about their respective NASCAR cookbooks, and with former driver and now race team owner Richard Childress about his North Carolina-grown wine.
Last week, I had a story on choosing the right glass to enhance your enjoyment of wine. (I know, I know. You probably just guzzle from the bottle like I do.) And I did a story about a champagne named POP that is aimed at younger drinkers who were weaned on soft drinks as kids.
Other than that, I didn't really do that much.
