So I get a message from our own Anne Marie yesterday, and it went like this:
Anne Marie: Did you know there is an OTO RW going on right now?
Me: Um. I have no idea what you said just now.
Anne Marie: Old Towne Orange Restaurant Week.
From that exchange I learned two things:
1) I need to get a better grasp on OC food blogging shorthand and;
2) This particular restaurant week seemed to slip through the cracks.
Here are the details:
