The Gourmet Club Goes Dark

Well, I really have put off writing this, but we got the news that The Gourmet Club and all other live programming on is indefinitely suspended. So, instead of going to the studio this morning for a fun discussion with Robert Whitley, Maureen Clancy and guests, I've got a conference call, a phone interview and a story to work on. You tell me which sounds like more fun!

We may go back on. Who knows? But, regardless, I want to thank Robert and Maureen, who know everything about food and wine in San Diego and beyond, for being so generous and such great partners. We had a great time and were really getting into a groove together. Robert's assistant, Felicia Forbes, is the coolest lady and always such a help in getting us prepped for the show. Our guests made it all so interesting, especially our friend, Mike Mitchell, who regularly introduced us to new and exciting restaurants around town. Thank you very much! And, I want to thank my friend Ron James for bringing me on board last year. Of course, my really big thanks go out to those of you who actually took the time to listen and even call in periodically.

It was a great run and I hope against hope that the mikes go back on soon.

Meanwhile, you can listen to me monthly on KPBS radio's These Days with Tom Fudge. My next appearance will be on Monday, Sept. 22 at 10 a.m.
