What about when I start jumping up and down and talk trash to the people around me when Big Papi goes deep?

If the tickets are on you, then dinner is on me. I'll make you a degustation dinner at wherever I'm staying at.

IC, You can't not do it! TK has 2 restaurants in the top 5 restaurants in the WORLD. How many people can say that? Experience doesn't get any better than that. In my oppinion, he is the best chef in america at this time. (I'm also am stickler for French cuisine) I would do it in a second. I would give you mad props man, that is something you can always say.....I worked at the French Laundry,(or Per Se) Thats an awesome experience no matter if you are cooking, serving wine or even washing dishes. Not many people have the opportunity to work in a top 5 in the world restaurant.

IC, I say take the risk! Not matter what, you will always be an accomplished chef. Go for this new experience, your young, and from all that I've read from you, you really have a passion for wines and learning as much as you can about them. I think this is what you want.

Hey IronChef,

At least put in your application for the position. You may or may not get it--looks like the winner's circle will be pretty small. But if you don't even try, it will always be one of those "coulda been" things in your life. When you get twenty years down the road, you don't want to say to yourself, "if only...."

Good luck!

Better to say yes than no. If you really get cold feet or can't raise the cash, then you can always say no later on. Say yes now and keep your options open.

I submitted a copy of my resume just for the heck of it. We'll see what happens.
