The June 9th, 2008, issue of Newsweek arrived at my house today. It contains an article about underground supper clubs: semi-secret groups of people who meet at someone’s house for home-cooked gourmet meals. Donations from the guests help cover expenses.
The article suggests that you can find the clubs as easily as doing a search for “underground dining Denver.” If this is true, it must mean that this phenomenon has yet to come to the Queen City of the Plains. Give it time.
What caught my eye was that Jeremy Townsend, founder of the Ghetto Gourmet, has created a “social networking site where foodies can find each other to host their own events, as well as share recipes.”
Social networking sites, like the Ghetto Gourmet’s Forum, are great places to find like-minded people to discuss important things, like food. You can find a forum for discussing Glorious One-Pot Meals on my Glorious One-Pot Meals Facebook page.
I’ll be talking about forums and other Web 2.0 publicity strategies for authors during a FREE teleseminar Wednesday, June 4th, at 2pm EST. Visit my other blog, RecipesForPublicity, to learn more and register.
