Sometimes, it's worth gaining a few pounds to sample great food.

The guest of honor, Silke Rible.
I went to Silke Rible’s baby shower (she looks wonderful, by the way) at the home of John Scalzi and Linda Larsen, two of the most hospitable people in the world! John made a wonderful mushroom and brie crustini, so I had to indulge before some chocolate shower cake, right???
The incomparable hostess, Linda Larsen.
After hearing the Hyatt GM, Mark Becker, brag about Chef Aaron’s Buffalo wings, we settled in for a go at Currents restaurant in the hotel. They are a bit pricey at $11 a bowl, but worth every finger-lickin’ moment—in fact, we managed to eat two bowls within five minutes. I don’t think we came up for air during the entire time—they are terrific! I finished with a glass of wine and the last part of the Villanova game at the Ritz before calling it a night.
Currents' delectable Buffalo wings.
On Sunday it was time for more basketball, so of course we had to head to Lee Roy Selmon’s for brisket quesadillas and ribs. Now I sit at the computer wearing elastic waist pants looking down at the scale and contemplating whether it was all worth it—YUP!
