Interested in contributing to “She Ordered What?!?”

Y’all, I’m finally planning travel again soon!  🙂

Let’s not get too excited, as I’m heading to semi-rural CLE and NJ (but also NYC).  Then I’m off to Chicago and Atlanta.  And, let’s not forget CLEMSON!  With a fighting chance that I do indeed make it to Singapore this fall too!  New “experiential posts” soon to come, friends!

In the meantime, I’ve had a few readers tweet me, and leave Facebook and blog comments asking additional questions, so I thought I’d take some time to answer them.

1) What if I get served something I don’t like?

SOW: That’s always part of the risk/reward.  It’s perfectly acceptable, and encouraged, by the primary author of this blog (me!) to set a few limitations which might help your experience be a bit more enjoyable.  (See my restrictions about maple flavors and scallops.  I also advise servers that I don’t drink “spirits” or coffee drinks)  You don’t have to surrender total control!

2) What if I see a few things I think I’ll like, but am not sure.

SOW: Again, you don’t have to rely solely on your server!  I’ve often ordered using the “I can’t decide amongst [insert options here]…” method.

In fact, I had (another!) great experience at Zingerman’s Roadhouse last week when my colleagues and I had a team dinner.  I had read rave reviews about their Mac ‘n Cheese, but I hadn’t tried it yet.  And, y’all, the list is pretty enticing!  So, I had our server, Josh, choose a Mac ‘n Cheese dish for me.  He didn’t skip a beat, and he brought me this delightful dish!

3) If I’m not a writer, can I still contribute to the blog?

SOW: Absolutely!  Guest posts should be written in your tone, using your words to describe your experience.  However, I’m happy to edit whenever someone asks for help!

(Disclaimer: I often add relevant links to guest posts to provide additional information for readers – and I usually don’t ask permission!)


4) How do I go about writing a guest post?

SOW: Please just capture as much of your experience as you can through notes and pictures (or video if permitted!), and then describe your experience.  You can email me a Word document and attachments at

If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to me!
