    I had the great misfortune of being at one of these jerk off food and wine events full of bloggers and people who somehow found a job writing about food, and it's amazing how many of these dumpy women would say "O, I'm getting that real mushroomie umami now," and all her bovine comrades would validate her with other food blogging platitudes.

    It was that moment that I decided to not be involved with food professionally anymore.

    It gets a little tedious but it pays the bills.

    I fully endorse both the original post as well as the tangents of this thread.

    Have any of you heard of or tried the coffee from House of Coffee Beans in Houston? They roast and sell the best coffee I've ever tasted, FWIW, and have flown under the radar for decades now. The prices are great but if you take into consideration the quality of the beans then it's pushed into the realm of incredible.

    By not hiring a consultant to come up with a brilliant coffee store name like Third Rail, Ritual, Handsome, Stumptown etc, they were able to save a ton and pass the savings on to you!
