filling station...

Just got back from the High Point furniture market in North Carolina.
So much good stuff and people there and I will try to down load as much info as possible over the next few days, but of course I have to start with just one of the food experiences. Excuse the low light on this video. Tom (my manufacturing partner and I) were sitting outside at night.

This place, THE FILLING STATION, is located in the historic West End of Winston-Salem, NC. in an old, renovated gas station. The food was spectacular but it was the homemade desserts that sent us over the edge. We found out our waiter was the one that made them (pumpkin cheesecake & some sort of strawberry/vanilla/cream cake)--serious stuff.
Tom moaned after he took the first bite of the cheesecake.
It was priceless. I've never seen him react like that to food before.

Great food. Awesome people. Lot's of arteries screaming for help. Good times.

ALSO--I stopped by Atlanta on my way back home to appear on the GOOD DAY XTRA show

Angelo, I watched the Atlanta interview. You're good at that. So relaxed and natural. You need to have some kind of live show of your own.
And about the giant deserts...that's how they do it down here. Yikes! I was blown away when I first moved here.

A slice of cake the size of your head - sounds about right to me! The food does look delicious, and the red wine will keep the cardiologist at bay - that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Kathy
