JoeyHemlock's Dinner Meme.
List the person (only one per category, except where noted!) who you would most like to have dinner with in each of the following categories. The person you choose should be alive (except the "fictional character" category, obviously) Optionally, you can choose the location of the dinner, but it must be a restaurant that you've actually eaten at.
POLITICS - Bill Clinton. I want to take Big Bill to Curtis' Chicken and Ribs in Putney Vermont, and talk to him about the state of the Democratic party, and what he really thinks about GWB.
SPORTS - I want to take Tiger Woods out to Zanzibar, in Ann Arbor. Afterwards, there will be golf tips.
LITERARY - I'd like to take Harper Lee out for soul food at Sweet Georgia Brown's, and ask her about the unbearable weight of expectations.
FILM/THEATER - Dunno. I'm not much of a film guy, so I want to eat sushi off of Aishwarya Rai. We can do that at home.
TELEVISION - I'd take John Stewart and Stephen Colbert out for steaks and big drinks at the Palm.
VISUAL ARTS - No idea.
MUSIC - I have no idea about this one. I'd like to take Eddie Vedder to SeVa, and ask him about politics.
FOOD - I want to take Anthony Bourdain to Restaurant Arun in Siem Reap, Cambodia, and ask his opinion of the fish. Afterwards, we'll go get shitfaced at the Heart of Darkness in Phnom Penh. ( I stole the person from magdalene).
THE INTERNET - Sooner or later I'm gonna actually show up to a gathering and meet most of you, so I'll say someplace like the Weber Grill restaurant in Chicago.
FICTIONAL CHARACTER - Tyrion Lannister. Who wouldn't want to break bread with the Imp? Let's say the Earle, in Ann Arbor.
HOBBY/SPECIALTY - Gary Gygax at Red Hot Lover's. I want a straight answer about how he feels about D&D as it is now.
FOR A FRIEND - (Set up three separate dinners for three separate friends) -
Cranky gets Ralph Reed at Hooters.
Gundy gets Sammy Sosa at a hotdog stand.
Haardvark gets Gordon Downie at Tim Horton's.
WILD CARDS - (Three other people who didn't quite make it in one of the other categories):
I dunno. I'll think about these.
