End of the Line

The last installment of my restaurant reviews for Nature Network Boston has been posted. As I predicted, I have eaten myself out of a job. I covered all the areas around major research and convention centers, a scientist’s natural habitat. There is nothing left for me to explore.

On the positive side, I can now eat at restaurants that I want to eat at, as opposed to where I think other people may want to eat. I no longer have to dictate where we go when out to dinner with friends (they are all so wonderfully patient but I can see it getting irritating).

Writing and eating for these reviews has been so much fun. It also taught me a whole lot about writing for a major publication. I got a taste (pun intended) of food writing as a profession and I have to say, I liked it. I want more.

I hope you're able to parlay that experience into more food writing gigs! You have one new one already!

Damn, I guess I was too slow setting up that research facility?! Keep pushing, I'm quite sure another food based opportunity will arise :)

JC - I really hope so as well! Maybe I should advertise my services or something... I can be a personal restaurant consultant!

Allen - Truly. Let's have a moment of silence for my restaurant reviews. They shall be missed.

Aimee - Yeah! Wish you had hurried up a bit with the research facility! Bugger. Now I will have to get a real job just like everyone else... Sad.
