“Our first hug was the Heimlich maneuver”
Just in time for the Valentine’s season, a new article about the pitfalls of proposing in a restaurant is up at Gourmet.com. A topic near and dear to my heart, though I’m less concerned about the logistics of such operations and more interested in why men (and the occasional lady) need to hide jewelry in food in the first place.
On a side note, there’s been lots of Heimlich talk lately: gagging on rings in above article, the big Tom Colicchio save and a chicken and waffle mishap at Carroll Gardens’ own Buttermilk Channel. Maybe choking will be big in 2009.
