I just registered and booking things. I am also hitting refresh on Next Restaurant too many times per day to count. It's not like I can afford the el bulli theme anyhow (but I will buy a ticket regardless if they come up).

I was at the show today. Not much in terms of knives. Kikuichi, Shun, Zwilling, Henckels, Global, Masahiro and a boat load of those 'fashionable' colored ceramic knives among other less stellar makers. I did check to see if Lamson Goodnow had the R!chmond knives, but they didn't. Boos, Catskill, Epicurean, are there for boards and there are a lot of other iffy makers peddling bamboo, teak, larch wood etc.

In the end, I just feel bad talking to people about knives. I don't think they can truly comprehend the 'sickness' we have -- though the Japanese lady got a huge smile when I said that I liked my Kikuichi TKC. Btw, I didn't mention the rust issue because of the bolster Dave ;)

As for getting into Next Restaurant, it probably won't happen, but I did get into the Aviary bar, so maybe that will turn into a late night meal -- but I am not holding my breath.
