Chow Down in YOUR Town Postcards

Launch gallery slideshow

Swap Coordinator:cooan (contact)
Swap categories: Paper Goods  Miscellaneous  Letters & Writing 
Number of people in swap:31
Last day to signup/drop:June 3, 2007
Date items must be sent by:June 17, 2007
Number of swap partners:3

So, here's me idea!

We send a postcard from the town in which we live, and on the postcard we write our favourite restaurant in the town and our favourite meal to eat there!

I mean, hey, what if I go to your town one day? I'll already know a good place to get some food! I won't have to read some tourist guide!

3 partners, 1 postcard to each partner!

International. Newbies welcome, but fill out your profile and/or provide a link to your intrawebz presence. Ratings of 4.5 or higher. No more than 2 no sends in the last 3 months.

(I'm pretty fair and lenient and have no problem checking out profiles and ratings and who rated you etc. I know there are a few ratings-catfights going around, and I know that people often rate 1 within a week of swaps closing or not communicating with their partner.)

I am so ready for this swap! Oh do I have a recommendation. And I am going to hold each of my three partners responsible for coming to Pittsburgh to join me for a bit at my recommendation. I'll treat!

oooh! make sure PostMuse is one of my swap partners then! =)

Hehe, well partners are assigned... here's to hoping I got PostMuse. ;)

Have fun y'all!

Marloes, cooan, Canadian Gal - I mailed your postcards today, but I think one of them might be blank. Not entirely positive. I was filling them in, waiting for the post office to open and then they opened and I mailed everything and I feel like I forgot to write on one of them! Please let me know so I can make it up to you. I work 11p-7am and my brain was kind of running on empty this morning.

PostMuse, I received you as my partner AGAIN! What are the odds of that!! How cool...I just mailed you my postcard for the Int'l Arty PC's and now I expect my invite to Pittsburgh! HA! Your PC will arrive shortly!! :) Happy Swapping!

Postcards on the way to Lisa, Julia and luv with stars:-)

PostMuse 06/ 4/2007 #

My cards are out for this swap today... sort of odd cards but hoping you like my reasoning behind it :-)

Also, anyone who wants to come visit Pittsburgh, just let me know. I can show you this lovely city and will treat you to eats at the chow down location promised!

Marloes, cooan and MadMadam: Your cards are on the way. My choice of restaurants was easy... There's only one (a cafe) in my town. =)

PostMuse 06/ 8/2007 #

Oh my goodness. I think this is the fastest I've ever received all the cards for a swap! Thank you cooan, mpontalba, and CanadianGal!

PostMuse, I am originally from the 'burgh and my dad still lives there. My favorite when I visit is Tessaro's on Liberty Ave. I can really get my carnivore on there. Ever go there?

toscabelle 06/ 9/2007 #

Oh, and I got lovely cards from Debbie H. (I love a good filet too!) and Pam Bartlow. Thanks gals!

PostMuse 06/10/2007 #

Ah.... as a vegetarian I usually steer clear of burger places, even those with such great reviews as Tessaro's. The restaurant I sent as my recommendation for this swap is on S. Craig Street....Eat Unique. Used to be called something else (and one thing I've learned about Pittsburghers is that they are quite fond of what "used to be here"!), and was more a deli I think. They still serve sandwiches, but brie is just as likely to show up on the cheese list as cheddar :-)

Got lovely postcards (and recommendations that are making me really hungry for something I don't have to cook) from ArtIndulgence and Miss Five. Now I remember why I miss living in a city...
