Sometimes you just have to say

what the f*^*( ! and live your life.
After wanting to dine at NEXT in Chicago for f.o.r.e.v.e.r. I was able to secure a reservation for next Wedensday night. 12 courses with a wine paired to each one. I am on a 10 week diet - no grains, no dairy diet. I have cheated a couple of times, once with a few crackers and two or three times with a little rice while eating Asian food.
Next changes their menu/theme every 6 weeks. The current theme is terrior - all the food is based upon its pairing with the wines that are being served. I am done with my 10 week diet on 10/5 and the menu at Next is changing on 10/12. There were no reservations available those last 7 days.
I will diet until Wednesday afternoon and resume it again on Thursday morning. Sometimes you just have to live your life to the fullest.
