After months and months and months (and months) of working on it, the books are here and we’re having a party! TOMORROW!!
CEOT Book Launch Feb 13th, 7pm-9pm at East African Restaurant in Ottawa, sponsored by Beau’s All Natural Brewery. RSVP please!
I’ve moved almost my entire office into Rocker & Junkii’s guest room and am stickering the hell out of everything that’s going in the swag bags (which are actually boxes).
We’re driving all over town delivering restaurant letters (the letters to restaurants saying “congratulations you’re in a kickin’ new restaurant guide. Here’s a poster. Put it up.”)
We’re contacting the stores that have carried the book in the past, but haven’t placed any orders yet, to remind them that the book will be “released” on Feb 14th.
We’re talking to media and trying to build some buzz… I spoke with Ron Eade from the Citizen last week, I’m on CKCU on Wednesday morning at 8am, another interviewer is coming to the launch, sent a review copy into CHUO and yesterday I visited with Gay Cook who writes the food column in the Citizen .
Oh, and this is for M.Tinto, we are driving a big-ass SUV. Photos coming, but you can start the teasing now.
