Lakeview Coffee Joe Accusations - THE TRUTH UNVEILED!

So there are a number of you who read this blog who also follow Hanging with Joe, the blog of my business partner Lakeview Coffee Joe. But there are many of you who don't know who this person is or the terrible accusations that he consistently makes about me, de-I, a person of great restraint and personal integrity (refer to de-I's Sandia Outfitters).

According to Mr. Joe, every time I come to Chicago for business (in his blog I use a nom de plume of El Supremo de New Mexico), I force him to break out of his austere lifestyle and consume mass quantities of food and alcohol which he documents in detail in posts like this and this.

So what am I to do in the face of such onslaughts! There is only one thing I can do...


From the moment I arrive in Chicago, I put him under my spell. But what is hilarious is he doesn't even realize just how far gone he goes. Look at this example.

Look at the mass quantity of meat, veggies, rice and beans that Joe has ended up ordering.
You see this on his photo of our night a Irzaru, the Costa Rican place we went this week.

But what his picture doesn't show because of my clever spells is that...

Think I'm kidding about LCJ being in a trance?

I submit Exhibit A.

And I will be back in Chicago in December to have more fun with Mr. Joe.

That is NOT a flattering picture of me! I think I was nearly frozen from sitting outside.

Tell the WHOLE truth! A salad...pish posh! Appetizers and empanadas preceded that salad!!

I still blame you.

de-I said...

Of course it's not flattering - you're in a trance silly.

i think the problem is if de-I eats on the road it doesn't "count" towards his austere diet at home. You're a victim of circumstances Joe

LOL! I really need a copy of that could be part of a 50th birthday celebration some day...

de-I said...

Bee - send me an email at it's yours. Unless some sibling of yours bribes me. Bwahahahaha.

You two are well matched. May the best man win!

Haha... well you have photo evidence now. Who is not to believe you?

I read Joe's posts and the way he blames you for his lack of self-control when you are around. He seems to forget about all the rib posts he writes, and all the tail-gating food he describes. Hahaha! Joe appreciates good food. Apparently he's got a little guilt about it and he needs someone to blame.

I may have to wonder over to LCJ's blog to get his side of the story..
