Sister Hawthorne, I may need to come visit you June 15. Damn it, Carol. You're really bustin' my chops on this, but at least we won't be competing since my itinerary is totally different: Rosie on the Road The Grande Tour April 4-5 -- Parking lot of Club House at Colington Harbour. I'll be serving poached osprey eggs on toast points with a seaweed and dandelion salad. April 6-7 -- Kill Devil Hills. Parking lot of Kangaroo Express (corner of 158 Bypass and Colington Road). I'll be dishing up some delish racetrack flavors. My famous Burned-Rubber-Bacon-Burgers with a side of 10W30 Tater Tots. April 8-9 -- Wanchese Seafood Industrial Park. 615 Harbor Road, Wanchese, NC. Catch of the Day. April 10-12 -- Suburbs of Plymouth, NC. In honor of Xmaskatie, I'll be thawing out chili and zucchini bread. April 13-14 -- Danville, Va. I'll be setting up shop on the RiverWalk Trail and frying up catfish caught in the Dan River with a sprinkling of dehydrated squid powder over a gelato base of tripe. I, too, have a vapor gun, so I will be filling mylar balloons with essence of sea shore and sea gull for that special "If you can't be there then I'll bring it to you" experience. And you can be sure I'll be TWITTERING my ass off the entire time. Not. Please, everyone. Come out and join Rosie on her Grande Tour. Oh. And Happy April Fool's Day!

Rosie, you should add VIR to your list - 12 miles from Danville, and a very nice venue. We'll meet you there especially for MG or BMW events.
