Yesterday we had a fun day judging bbq at the Throwdowns in the Vineyards KCBS bbq competition held at the Ironstone Winery in Murphys Ca. It was a beautiful day with 29 teams compositing. What made this day very special my wife Ms. Goofy achieved a milestone in her judging career. She achieved the number of judging 100 sanctioned KCBS contest. This was a fun day with a little celibration honoring her achievement. Here she is pictured reciting the judges oath. She is the only women in California and possible the Western states to have achieved this honor. Congratulations.

We cooked up the sausages and were pleased with the flavors. The Puccini is an Italian style sausage that does not have the traditional fennel as an ingredient. It was mild with lots of garlic to keep the vampires away. The Calabrese was my favorite. It was aggressively seasoned. I would not say it was hot but this pork sausage got your attention. It did have some wonderful pepper flakes throughout. We plan to return to Little City Market. Hopefully our parking karma is intact.

Tony Gemignani, 13 time world Pizza Champion and food celebrity extraordinaire opened a bagel shop in the City and I had to go visit. You may have seen Tony on the food network tossing pizzas. He has built himself a food empire. The bagel shop is his latest venture. My parking Karma has not been lost. I did take a quick (illegal) U-turn but I landed a coveted parking spot in San Francisco only a block away from my destination.
As soon as I walked through the door, there was Tony to meet and greet the customers. He is larger than life with charm and humility. He took the time to meet and greet anybody that wanted a picture or chat. I ordered a couple of bagels and then talked to Tony. I felt like a little schoolboy meeting some sports or action hero.
I was a fanboy today and the image above is a rare photo of yours truly. It is not every day you get to meet food royalty. I think Tony was impressed.
