Serious Eats Day 2012: What Day Should We Celebrate?


Note: That is not actually Ed Levine. It's our barbecue columnist James Boo!

Last year we decided there should be an official day when serious eaters gather in cities across the globe to nosh, drink, and just be merry with fellow serious-eatin' folk. Serious Eats Day 2011 was a smashing success with over 60 meet-ups organized in Los Angeles, Brooklyn, Jakarta, and beyond. It's become a little new year's tradition for us, so it's time to plan one for 2012!


Last year's NYC meet-up at Radegast in Williamsburg.

For those who want to band together with other serious eaters at a beer hall, restaurant, diner, or really wherever you decide, on an upcoming day in February (and you should all be raising your hands), which date works best for you? Let us know in the comments below and we'll tally up the votes, then pick the most popular date and make it official. Tune in later this week to find out when Serious Eats Day 2012 will be!
