    Convention thoughts from Tom Webb


    Monday, August 30, 2004

    Send food! 

    Here in the fine-dining capital of the world, food is strangely sparce. The convention had hardly opened when the "restaurant" in the sprawling media center sold out of bagels. (And in New York City, of all places!)

    By early afternoon, it appeared to be out of prepared sandwiches, salads, fruit and chicken fingers. That pretty much left hot dogs, from what I could tell.

    This is the first day, so a certain amount of chaos is expected. But still, if this continues, we'll all be a lot thinner on the Big Apple Diet.

    Meanwhile, the New York visitors bureau has arrayed posters around town, bragging that New York boasts "17,312 restaurants _ that's one a day for 47 years."
