Virtual Gourmet: Twitter Foodie

One avid Diablo follower takes our restaurant recommendations seriously



After unveiling our 2009 Food Award winners, we noticed one of our Twitter followers eating—and tweeting—her way through the list. We asked Danville resident Darci Motta about her Food Awards adventure—and made her keep the answers under 140 characters, of course.

I’m a foodie + my office moved to WC in Oct 09 & I had to prove to my colleagues that were SF Foodie snobs that East Bay has GREAT food!

Lunch w/bff @ KoiGarden—found myself pointing at pic & orderingitems I didn’t mean to & loving them—reminded me of my trip to HK!

I understand your progress was delayed after the first seven. What happened?

Darci37                                     9 mins ago
Life … and I got distracted by all the newbies that have opened in the past few months! (but I’m going to finish)

You tweeted that you went to one of the newbies, Sasa, within 24 hours of seeing our August cover. Is that true?

Darci37                                      1 mins ago
Yes! I’d just returned frm a series of travels + picked up mail + within 24 hrs of seeing cover had a colleague lined up 2 meet me 4 lunch!
