An interesting coincidence, is it not, that much of Bob Oakes’ field research is conducted tableside at local eateries?
The Morning Edition host diligently digs into some oysters … er, I mean is digging up a big, important news story alongside Legal Seafood CEO Roger Berkowitz.
Back in November 2007, Bob sampled Rialto’s Thanksgiving menu. (I selflessly volunteered to tag along to shoot video and nosh on the leftovers.)
Here our inveterate newsman stoically braved East Coast Grill’s annual rite of torture known as “Hell Night.” (Take it from me, Old Beelzebub would be proud. That “Pasta From Hell” is sure to knock the lint off your socks.)
Lest you think Bob’s job is all fun and games, let me remind you of the years punching in before sunrise, the pressure-cooker election marathons, and breaking news coverage. The man’s put in his time.
Now I gotta go grab me a snack.
