It was exactly one year ago that The Pitch launched Fat City with a root beer tasting. Since then, we've delivered 1,500 posts of news, events, openings, closings and the most informative -- and weirdest -- stuff we can find online. 


Out of those 1,500 posts, there have been some definite duds. But like a blind miner, we occasionally strike gold.

Here, in chronological order, are our 10 favorites.


10. Advice from a sommelier on selecting a good wine: We still read this article before going to the liquor store.

9.  Culinary School Diaries:

This one discussed the overuse of pointless French

words. It only got more technical over the next 13 weeks of classes.

8. Christmas foods that are overrated: Who knew people really love those huge popcorn tins so much?


7. Possibly the worst waiter in Kansas City: Here's a tip -- don't give him your credit card.

6. Predictions for 2009: About half of these have already come true and the other half are looking extra promising now that we're halfway through the year.

5. What judging a beer contest is really like: It involved a lot of drinking way too early in the morning but was still a wonderful experience.

4. Boulevard brewmaster Steven Pauwels at Flying Saucer: For Boulevard fans it was like Christmas morning as he brought samples of nearly everything the brewery was working on. It was enough for two posts.

 

3. "Brunch: The Musical" Gets A Bad Tip: The reviews were mixed. We're looking forward to the sequel -- "Drive-Through: The Opera." 

 

2. Restaurant customers gone wild!: It isn't a Bravo channel reality series yet, but damn it, it should be!

 

1. Remembering Michael: Did you eat a "Thriller" burger?: No one actually seems to remember what was on the burger, but it unabashedly cashed in on the Michael Jackson mania of 1984. 

 

Thank you for all of your tips and comments. Keep them coming,

because we spent the first year just getting warmed up!
