Doggy Bag: Battle of the Blogs

Our favorite morsel from the blogs.

Take a victory lap around your laptop: Congratulations to Carolyn Jung, who came in second for best food blog in a competition by the Association of Food Journalists. Jung's blog Food Gal clocked in behind Between Meals by Chron senior critic and exec food editor Michael Bauer. That's right, Between Meals was named best blog at the AFJ's annual conference in New Orleans. We'll say it again: Best. Food. Blog. In. The. Nation. Think about it, people.

A former food staffer at the San Jose Mercury News (you know, back in the day when dailies had food staffs that numbered more than one), Jung is actually nice -- far nicer than we are. The networking organization draws much of its membership from daily newspaper food and wine writers, with smaller representation from alt weekly staffers and freelancers. Congratulations also to Jonathan Kauffman, staff writer at our sister pub Seattle Weekly, for taking first place in the category of restaurant criticism.

    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
