I had grand plans for a plethora of witty year end posts. Then I started getting all the January magazine issues that had features like 100 tastes to try in 2008. Add many parties, plane rides and glasses of Champagne, and I rationalized that it was, already, too late to wrap it up. I did put my two cents into the kitty for The Year in Eater, though I did have to page through my calendar to recall what opened and closed and when. My 2008 calendar is already in action. Do you need to read another reminiscence of the year that was? Probably not. Better to have another glass of Champagne bid adieu to 2007 and say bonjour deux mille huit.
