Yesterday Ken Cannon called to see if I wanted to meet him downtown for lunch and I was all LUNCH! So before I knew it we were together at DP Cheesesteaks on Third South ordering cheesesteak sandwiches like a crazy young couple in love.
Anyway. The place was packed like a New York subway at rush hour. Very popular, that DP Cheesesteaks. And not long after we sat down Ken Cannon looked around and told me that aside from the girl at the counter screaming out people's last names, I was the only woman there. Beyond that everybody else was a guy. Some of them were even firemen. WHAT A CLICHE!
And I said what is it about my life that I can't even go to a restaurant and see my own gender?
Which brings me to this question--is there such a thing as dude food? And chick food?
Opine, please. And give examples. I think this could be a column. A super sexist column for the new year.
