PORTLAND – If you'd heard what I said when the digital camera I checked out of the TNT's camera pool belly-flopped – must have been the vegan chicken breast -- you'd have heard the most interesting utterances of the day.
Here are some random snippets I overheard today while cruising the trade show floor of the Northwest Foodservice Show:
"We're trying to make it a bed and bistro instead of a bed and breakfast."
"The price point is very simple. Everything after that is profit."
Never miss a local story.
"My wife irons them for me. I'll wear this one and one tomorrow and that'll be it." – vendor in a wrinkled polo shirt.
"I don't touch my wife's iron." – a fellow vendor
"Haven't we already been down this aisle?"
"I couldn't find the chicken fries."
"She is the muffin princess."
"I need a drink drink."
This one occurred silently, but I saw it with my own eyes: an Oregon Convention Center custodian walking into the men's room with a plunger. It's a food service show, folks.
