And the winner is...

So, when the dust had settled and all last-minute wheeling and dealing had subsided, Menu For Hope III managed to bring in an astounding $60,925.12 (!), over $2,500 higher than what we announced as the final tally back on Christmas Day. Thank you, once again, to all of you out there who participated, congratulations to all the organizers who helped turn this year's edition into an unprecedented success, and if you made a donation to Menu For Hope III but haven't yet checked to see if you actually managed to win a prize, you might want to check here (especially if you go by the tag ambacosi). We checked to see if the results were up on January 15th, but for some reason it never occurred to us to see what had happened with the prize we'd bid on. Then, a few days later, we received an email from a friend with the subject heading "Congratulations," alerting us to give the results a closer look. Sure enough, through some strange twist of fate, we'd managed to come away with a prize. What does it all mean? Well, the next time we make our way down to New York, we've got a pizza crawl with Ed Levine and Adam Kuban of Serious Eats, Ed Levine Eats, and SliceNY a-waiting for us. Are we excited? Yes. Will you read all about it right here at " endless banquet"? Most certainly.

Looking forward to pizza-ing with you! Ed and I will consult the maps, plot the route, etc.
