First Annual "Dude, You Were So Blackened Out Last Year Awards"

We have a motto here at Blackened Out Worldwide Media, Oil Change, and Tax Return Specialty Center. Our motto is "Above All Else Be a Cliche." Why? Because everyone remembers a cliche.

With that in mind we would like your nominations for the following categories. What we do with them is an entirely different story and quite frankly none of your damn beeswax.

Restaurant of the Year
Chef of the Year
Drink of the Year
Annoying food trend you can't wait to see go away of the Year
Sexiest Vegetable of the Year
Wine of the Year
Local Food/Wine/Booze related Festival of the Year
Character of blog LEAST likely to Succeed

Winners will receive a free one year subscription to the blog and something to print out, likely an email.

Don't act like you are busy today. Its the Friday before Christmas, in 2 hours you are going to be lit up like a Menorah in a Christmas tree hurtling back into the Earth's atmosphere. You can take five minutes to send an email to blackenedout@gmail.com with your vote or just leave them in the comments section.

Restaurant of the Year - Shoney's - The breakfast bar took giant steps forward this year with the inclusion of an omelet station. It's truly top notch.

Chef of the Year - Al Copeland

Drink of the Year - 190 Octane triple shot from Daiquiris and Creams in Bucktown. Frankly, it's the drink of every year.

Annoying food trend you can't wait to see go away of the Year - food blogs

Sexiest Vegetable of the Year - I think this may be a trick question where if I respond, you call me gay. I'll take the bait though and go with apples.

Wine of the Year - I had a fantastic Kendall Jackson Chardonnay, vintage 2008 at Applebees the other night. You guys need to try it. It's a little pricey though.

BC humbly nominates Abbeville's Omelette Festival (officially known as the "Giant Omelette Celebration") for the Local Food/Wine/Booze related Festival of the Year.

I'd like to draw special attention to their response to PETA: “if you want to eat something else, then go somewhere else. This is Cajun country.”
