The Skeptical Diner: Farewell

Dear readers,

Today marks… well, not quite a year, but something yearish about the amount of time I’ve been writing for Metroblogging.

This site has given me a chance to develop my writing, irritate readers, and wolf down a variety of delicious and not-so-delicious items in the interest of expanding the public’s dining knowledge.

But now, for better or worse, City Pages has decided to unleash me on their cheap eats beat and yet-to-be-launched dining blog. This promises to be an all-consuming thing, and I’m therefore — with a heavy heart — hanging up my Metroblogging lanyard.

First and foremost, thanks to Erica for recruiting me, and giving me this ongoing opportunity to post sometimes poorly conceived and rambling missives about food. It’s been a lot of fun working with you.

And to my readers, and the rest of Metroblogging team: Thanks a million. I’m looking forward to following the ongoing Metroblogging action as a spectator and wry-but-sympathetic sideline commentator.

Best Regards,

    Congrats on the gig, Jim. I’ve enjoyed reading the Skeptical Diner and I will subscribe to it when it launches on the City Pages.

    Way to go Jim! I hope you get a nice big new expense account to pay for those cheap eats. I really look forward to reading more great neighborhood reviews from you.
