2008 - The Year of Gravy

As many of you know, each year, I dedicate 365 days to the higher pursuit of a random topic or two. In 2008, it was the Year of Gravy. In 2007, it was the Year of the Hat. And so on and so forth.

As a recap of 2008, I estimate I ate gravy about 50 times – yeah, that’s about once a week. Sometimes, it was beef gravy with some mashed taters. Other times it was ham gravy with Gerd’s family. Often times it was completely random restaurants claiming dishes came with a random gravy-like sauce. Chinese places treated me exceptionally well this year, as did the Cajun BBQ place in Tucson, just to give you some highlights.

You’ll all be happy to know, 2009 is officially the Year of Happy Hour. Gerd and I intend to hit up as many happy hours as possible this year. This may be a difficult task with school and all, but we’ll give it our best go. Leisure hours will also be included in this, as will other iterations of the word “happy.”

If you’ve got suggestions for us, we’ll be happy to take you up on any. We’re hoping to take advantage of food offers more than drink offers, but if there’s cheap girly drinks, you can count me in.
