Operation Chicken Challenge feat. Popeyes and…

The first bite felt like that moment when I found out that Santa, the Easter Bunny and Kim Kardashians marriage to Kris Humphries wasn’t real.

It was disappointing, the skin was peeling off, and it was missing pickles. The meat was soft, so I did not get the crunch that I was prepared for after watching reviews online. What saved it was the flavor of the bun, the seasoning and texture of the chicken.

What's Up With Your Blog Name?

Since the creation of this blog, I’ve gone back and forth with myself about whether I should change the name. Why? Because people find it confusing. If I tell them the name, it usually takes a few attempts of repeating it for the person to understand. The conversation usually goes like this:

Walking into a Wegmans is like visiting your rich friends house for the first time…

Conveniently located in front of Lynnhaven Mall in Virginia Beach, Coopers Hawk consists of a restaurant, artisan market, bar, and Napa style tasting area. Prior to them opening to the public, I was invited to partake in a meal that could best be described as a culinary mouth party orchestrated by Master Sommelier Emily Wines and Executive Kitchen Manager Edmund Vogel.
