I’ll take the Buzz challenge :-) June 18, 2008

After having had an absolutely lovely afternoon of meetings from good friends whom I’ve met through the blogosphere (lovely Phaedra at Our Town Cafe for yerba mate tea and poppyseed muffin, and adorable Isabella for very early dinner at The Locus), I got back at home, rushing for an interview that got rescheduled at the last minute.

So what do I find when I turn Twhirl on? A challenge by local news power blogger Buzz Bishop (of 95Crave fame) to review The Brave Bull. The restaurant may be in the seedier part of town, but I am never one to back off of a challenge, so I agreed to review it. Since tomorrow – Thursday, and Friday are potentially already booked for dinner, I might end up going on Saturday night. Unless they have brunch, in which case I’ll go in the morning.

Any readers/bloggers/twitterers want to join me? Drop me a comment and let me know 🙂 So, you can expect a restaurant review as early as Monday morning! YAY! He also challenged Karen from Tiny Bites, so she may join me (potentially, so – Karen, don’t feel obligated!)

Ok, I challenge you to go cycling with me!

It’s a deal, Don! I was actually going to ask you if you wanted to go for a run. As you may know, I am not in the physical shape to present any sort of challenge for you either on a bike or on a run, but I’d love to just go jogging (heck, even a power-walk along the seawall!)

[…] Raul immediately stepped up to task, scheduling this Saturday as the day he will dine at said questionable eatery (which looks more like a mafia front than a food stop). I believe he and Buzz have dubbed it SteakCamp. […]

The brave bull is one of those places you drive by year after year and wonder who the hell eats there. I walked in once to check it out and it looks as good on the inside as it does on the out. They should really rename it to ‘Brave Customer’

Dario – I think that’s the whole point of Buzz’s challenge. But I am not going alone. There is already a group of bloggers, readers AND twitterers who are coming. Want to join? 😀
