NYC Food Bloggers . . . Join us.

NYC RestaurantsI came back from a buddhist retreat earlier this year and learned a lot about myself, the most important thing being that life is too short to not do what you love. If you’re the intended audience for this message, you follow the mantra: “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs – ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” You’ve been making it there (and by postulate, could be making it anywhere) and still found time to pursue your true passion; the creation and appreciation of fine food.

It is out of this love for fine dining that 93 Plates was born. January has thirty-one days; we try to eat three meals a day; over the course of the month, we’ll all eat ninety-three meals (maybe we’ll only make dinner on New Year’s Day, but I digress). The idea for 93 Plates NYC sprung from my two prior marathon restaurant projects: 24 in 24 Boston and DC. It’s something fun, something novel, something unusual that will bring together more people who share the same passions I do, hopefully bringing together some of those who may have been admirers of each other’s work who’ve never actually met in real life.

I just started reaching out to New York City based food writers and have been well received. Here are a few of the bloggers who are excited about the project and will be coming along for the ride:

They’re all joining me for a meal (or three) and my sponsors and I are taking care of the bill. Here’s a link to what the write-ups are going to look like (I had lunch at Jean Georges with Steve Dublanica of Waiter Rant). Needless to say, I am looking forward to meeting all these awesome writers (not to mention photographers) that are excited about life and making the most of NYC. As a bonus, on the last day of the project (a Sunday) I’m going to have the restaurant issue a super discounted menu for the writers that participated on the project. It will be like a meet and greet of sorts for the who’s who of food blogging in NYC. I’m sure you’ve met some people on the list and simply admired others from afar; this should be the perfect opportunity to turn the rest of those online acquaintances into friends.

If you’re an NYC food writer and are interested in getting in on the project, let me know. You can feel free to write about the experience on your site afterwards or skip it and just come along for the conversation. Either way, shoot me an e-mail at Hagan (@) or call me at (949) 4-FOODIE (436-6343) and we can set something up; I’m always happy to talk to someone who lives to eat.
