One down, one to go

Last night was the first signing for Atlanta Kitchens, at Manuel’s Tavern, where friends and I have been meeting Tuesdays since… you know, dirt. Or iced tea, anyway.

Manny’s did their usual fabulous job, setting me up at a nice table, setting out some great snacks. Frank Reiss from A Cappella Books was a terrific cohort, and … hey, people bought books! What a feeling to be there signing books, where I’d lined up for Paul Hemphill’s signature. How wonderful to see old friends walk through the door. How nice that total strangers (and a table of lawyers, riveted to their March Madness brackets) came, looked and bought. (Although I suspect the lawyers were looking for peace offerings to bring home.)

One more to go this week: Friday night at Heliotrope, a cute little home decor store (248 West Ponce in downtown Decatur, right next door to Sawicki’s and Cakes & Ale). The owners are arranging for some of the featured restaurants to serve tidbits from the book. If you couldn’t make Manny’s, I hope to see you there, 7-9 pm.

    Congratulations! I cant imagine anything but success with this book, it is so brilliant! I am sure, that by selling those books you have ensured the sale of MANY more! I have shown my copy of “Atlanta Kitchens” to two people, after 15 minutes, both RAN to Amazon.com to purchase their own! CONGRATS!

    Todd, you are hilarious. But I can’t say I don’t like the compliments, and you’ve been such a help. Bless you.
