You Should Go Eat Dinner With One Table, Ashley Merriman, and Vanessa

Hi friends! I’m back from A-Camp and trying to do a lot of really stupendous things in the month of June to ease my feelings-filled little heart back into the cruel real world. It’s tough, but luckily I live in New York and there is no shortage of fanfuckingtastic queer stuff going on right in my backyard. First up? Dinner with the One Table crew… with special guest chef Ashley Merriman! If this is a thing that makes you really excited, guess what? There are still a few seats open, and you should totally come! I want you to come eat delicious food and drink perfect cocktails at a large queer amazing table in Brooklyn. Please join me! Let me tell you more about it! Exclamation point!

You may remember the mouthwatering post we published about One Table a few months ago, after I attended the queer-lady-focused monthly dinner back in March and enjoyed an evening filled with foodgasms. If you need a reminder, let me jog your memory with some food porn.

I mean, need I say more?! Well okay, I will, even if that photo speaks for itself, because perhaps you didn’t catch the part where I nonchalantly mentioned that one of our very favorite lesbian chefs, Ashley Merriman – of Top Chef Season 6 fame and now the Waverly Inn! – will be the guest chef at this month’s One Table!

  1. God, I wish I could. Ashley Merriman is the fucking coolest, and from what is inarguably the best season of “Top Chef,” hands-down.
