Baby, I'm A Star!

My writing skills have finally paid off. Well, not finally. It did land me a brief stint as a sportswriter for my local newspaper a decade ago. Aside from that, I guess I've had a bit of a drought.

Well, with the newly-found urge to blog, I'm back in the writing game. I submitted a restaurant review back in July for a contest sponsored by the Jackson Convention & Visitors Bureau and lo and behold, three months later, I freakin' won. Like Annah, I'm approaching "famosity" status!

I was interviewed and had a brief photo session and it's all on their website. In the words of Prince: "Baby, I'm a star!"

To see my review, just click the moving ad on their site that says, "Want Free Food?"

Dinner for four to Julep. It's one of the more reputable restaurants in Jackson and was once rated Top 10 in the nation by the USA Today for their unique version of fried chicken.

Now my only dilemma is: who do I take with me and The Mrs.?

  2. LOL! Thanks, Falen! I have to admit that I was excited when I found out that I won. When I was taking photos at the restaurant, everyone kept staring at me trying to figure out who I was and why a camera crew was following me. LOL!
