Worth the “wait?”

Posted by gratrueities on October 9, 2009

Hollywood celebrity, a Beverly Hills hotspot, dining and dashing and Twitter – all the makings of a good drama!

And, though a month late, a $3 tip (which was actually in excess of 20%) that finally arrived!

Was it worth waiting for?  Jon-Barrett Ingels, who lost his job as a waiter at Barney Greengrass after tweeting and blogging about an incident with Jane Adams of the hit TV series Hung, may not think so.  Although, who knows, the ensuing publicity just may provide the aspiring actor/writer with an unanticipated career boost!

Not to get “hung” up on the irrelevant, but it seems that many stars seem to frequent Barney Greengrass Beverly Hills.

According to the recent San Francisco Chronicle article Gastronomic glitterati joins the Twitterverse, Twitter is becoming  an increasingly popular way for food lovers to expand their dining experiences.  They may now follow their favorite food “Twitterati” at restaurants across the country.  From recipes, to reviews, to behind-the-scenes glimpses of restaurant life, people are tweeting about what and where they’re eating.
