Fat Boy Meals with Stephen
A couple weeks back I was approched by Stephen from WCTV to have the content of my food blog, Sweet Tea & Bourbon, appear on their website. I agreed and since then we’ve been going back and forth with ideas for things (Foodie Friday and a possible logo), and also about possibly meeting for lunch. Today, with the new Five Guys Burgers & Fries opening up on Thomasville Road we decided to grab a bite.
One of the coolest things about social media is connecting with people online and then meeting them in real life. When I meet people who read this blog it is like meeting an old friend since they know a lot of things about me from reading my post, and I likewise if they also blog.
Stepehen was a really nice guy and we chatted about all sorts of things while eating our fat boy meals. Turns out he is a local Tallahassee guy who served our country in the U.S. Airforce. He told me he had been to all the Stans he ever wished to visit while he was deployed as a gunner on a Spectre Gunship. (These things are badass, Google it and watch one of the videos. You do not want to be a Taliban member with these things over head.) After that, he headed to FSU and ended up at WCTV. He also filled me in on a restaurant I should avoid, but after hearing how horrible it was I kind of want to check it out (blogging gold!). Overall, it was a good lunch and I am glad I got to meet the guy who helped give my blog a lot more visibility!
