When a Writer Plans Your Itinerary

Tomorrow I will be taking a weekend trip to Washington D.C. I'm representing my magazines at a Go Fish! concert (remember these guys?). One of the highlights will be spending some time with friend and fellow Boundless writer Carolyn McCulley.

Carolyn has been super gracious in helping me plan a lot of the details of my trip. I think my favorite e-mail from her showcased some possibilities for dinner tomorrow night:

"As for dinner, I can think of a ton of places to go. Some ideas to consider — Indian, Spanish tapas, Vietnamese, Afghan, Lebanese, vegetarian. Any sound good? If you want to sit outside, I might recommend Bacchus, a Lebanese restaurant with a nice outdoor patio. If you want chef-driven nouvelle cuisine, there's David-Craig. If you want want luxurious Indian, there's lots to choose from."

I smiled at how a writer can make a simple dinner meeting sound like an exotic experience. How am I supposed to choose between "chef-driven nouvelle" and "luxurious Indian"? That's why I decided on Lebanese with a nice outdoor patio. Sounds inviting, doesn't it? I'll let you know how it goes.
