Spare a Dime, Kind Sirs and Madams?

Dear Person Reading This,

I don't think I ask for much here at Unemployed Eater. I eat. I snap pictures of what I eat. I scribble a few words about said photographed foodstuffs. And I place these items in this very space. On your end, you read these tales. That's about it. So, whether you like this blog or absolutely hate it and want to punch me in the ovaries, I ask one thing: please "Like" it on Facebook?

PLEASE? The Facebook Page is fast becoming the epicenter of UE. Simply put, it makes things easier on my end to get the posts out. All blogs are put up there immediately, while the FB page has become one of the better ways to dive into the archives.

It's also the most convenient way, along with the Twitter machine, for us to communicate. Say you have a question, like, "Hey Mike, I'm jonesing for a roast beef sandwich in Century City!" I can respond, quickly, with, "Go to Clementine, you fool!" Or, say, "Mike! I'm depressed. What should I do?" I could fire right back, "First, turn that frown upside down. Then head straight to SusieCakes or Salt & Straw. Or both!" 

You get the point. So I beg, or just kindly request, that you please "Like" on Facebook.

Even easier: simply click on the "Like" button in the Facebook widget in the right frame ---->

Muchas gracias,

P.S. I'm also on Instagram if you want to follow. But I'll put a gun to your head on that one at a later time.

Good News! Cookie Good Now Open in Santa Monica.

As I alluded to back in January, the very good cookies of Cookie Good would be coming to Santa Monica before year's end. Well, all our holiday season carb wet dreams are now a reality as they have officially opened shop at 2448 Wilshire Blvd. Currently baking Monday-Friday from 11 am to 6 pm, with Saturday hours to come very, very soon.

I honestly don't know why you're continuing to waste your time reading this post when you should already be banging on their brand new door. Get yourself a seasonal Apple Pie cookie pronto, bro. And, while you're at it, please grab a Birthday Cake and Pancakes & Bacon for me. Thanks.

2448 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica
