Double Dose of Dining Out in August

dine and dish no 4
Next Monday, August 22, is the deadline for Dine and Dish, a virtual food blogging “event” for us to dine out wherever we live, then gather round the global cyber-table and dish it out! For this 4th edition, our first ever celebrity host, Sam of Becks and Posh, wants each of us to give Rachael Ray a run for her money by challenging us to show off our respective cities for $40 a day. If you haven’t already scanned the list of Top 25 Cheap Eats (for L.A.), clipped coupons, and taken advantage of half-price drink specials at happy hour, you still have the rest of this week and the weekend to cruise around town on public transportation to eat like a prince for the price of a pauper. To Be Rachael Ray for a Day, and more importantly, to ogle a sassy shot of Sam that would make any budding cover model sweat her job, pop over to Becks and Posh. Myself? Maybe I’ll just grab free samples from the local farmers’ market during the day, then blow the entire forty bucks in one shot on…
