Everyone wants to be in a band.
Even Tampa Bay area food writers and bloggers who aren't satisfied by dining on the company's dime. Now they want to take the stage as a band of merry and well-fed musicians. But first things first: A rockin' name.
A flurry of food-centric labels has flooded Facebook and Twitter, putting a culinary twist on some familiar names.
You know, like the Rolling Scones. The Eatles. Macaroon 5. (Blue Oyster Cult and Hot Tuna are taken.)
So with a little help from their friends and their own pretzel logic, Janet K. Keeler and Laura Reiley of the Tampa Bay Times; Jeff Houck of the Tampa Tribune, Arielle Stevenson of Creative Loafing, Carlos Hernandez of Carloseats.com, Isabel Laessig of the Familyfoodie.com, Sandi McKenna of Midliferoadtrip.tv and the irrepressible Suzanne Perry of Datz Deli in Tampa are cooking up some totally cool names.
No word yet on whether the music is any good. Or who will (or can) play what, though Keeler has dibs on the tambourine and Stevenson claims the bango. Genre? Who cares.
It's the names that rock their world. Stay tuned for Foodies World Tour dates.
