Friday Foodstuffs 10.10.08: Enjoy Yourself

I can probably guess what’s first and foremost of everyone’s mind: the economy and the financial markets. In my regular job, I follow this stuff all day, so I can certainly understand the concern. In fact, I’m so concerned that I’m actually typing this from under my desk, so if you see any spelling errors it’s because I can’t see the screen.

Just kidding.

The reality is this: we don’t really know what’s going to happen. So, my advice to you is to make the most of every day and to find time for enjoyment. There’s no point in living if all we’re going to do is be fearful and anxious.

And we’re here to help! Well, we’re here to give you ideas about food events happening around South Jersey, anyway. This time, we’ll divide things up by county (just to be different), and you can play along in the home version of the “Which County is Having Lots of Events” game! How do you play? Well, take a look at the list, and guess which county has the most events taking place this weekend. Please do not ask for any hints, because none will be provided (so there, nyah).

Ready? OK…here goes:

ATLANTIC COUNTY
