Live from New York! And now, I'm really on vacation

Posted by Nancy Leson

Hopefully, you've read my news about who-won-what at the James Beard Awards ceremony last night, and saw my dispatch from my hotel room at the Empire Hotel. Which was conveniently located across the street from Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center -- home to the "Oscars of the Food World." I flew out of there like a cabbie on a mission to report Seattle's big win last night: Holly Smith, Best Chef Northwest. And the big honor: for Jean Nakayama -- owner of Seattle's 103-year-old Maneki, an "America's Classic." I've got lots of great photos and New York stories to go with them, which I'd share with you if only I wasn't having "technical difficulties" posting the photos to my blog-site. But wait a minute! Wasn't I supposed to be on vacation? Yes, indeed, I was. And check-out time here at the hotel has come and gone (it's after noon already here). So I'll leave you with this thought: it's 90-some degrees in New York, and as I understand it, cold and rainy in Seattle. I plan to soak up some rays for you in Cape May, NJ, where I'm heading in a minute to visit family and friends. I'll tell you all about my trip -- to New York, New Jersey and elsewhere -- when I return from vacation in a couple of weeks. Have fun without me, and I'll pray for sun for you!
