Thanks Tahiti Tams. It was a short trip report, but then, so was my trip. Sigh, I could of used at least a week there!

Would someone please tell me the point of Marginal Mariela's post? (Exactly to whom is the use of the word "yummo" insulting?).

Hi Dmlove- As the recipient of the comment, I can't really answer your inquiry as I didn't understand what I viewed as an attack on my post and wording. Although, there are a lot of Rachael Ray haters on this forum.

trippin, I agree with you...I don't understand how what you said in your post led to that vitriol.

Thanks for starting a very entertaining thread. We missed the Chelsea Market on our last trip, but will definitely make it on our next one.

Hi iamq- I really liked Chelsea Market, and my 23 year old daughter found it underwhelming. Although she did like her lunch at Hale and Hearty Soups. I just went to their website and see they are all over Manhattan: http://www.haleandhearty.com/

cute..glad you had a good time.
I think Kevin Kline is just Brilliant!! in everything he does.

Just a word on this...because I count some people as friends and hate to see misunderstandings....

Vitriol is in the mind of the beholder LOL...that makes a lot of sense, no?

What some see as an unkind word, is just anothers sense of humour.
We don't all get it all the time but I try not to immediately take offense..

And while I think Yummo ranks right up there with Yummy in my list of words that adults should not use..I mean really, what happened to the Vocabulary when one passes 12 years of age?? I still think you can use the word anytime you want and not care if my friend Thin , I or anyone else dislikes the word

Hi Scarlett- As I already said, I used Yummo as a joke as we were in Chelsea Market where RR films 30 Minute Meals. She also has done several location shots in CM for several of her shows. I don't use Yummo or Yummy as part of my normal vocabulary. So you understand that I hope? Some did, though it seems most didn't.

Oh yes, I understood! I just wanted to say that others probably understood too and just had to say something about the word.

Meanwhile....I forgot to mention that you made me homesick

Maybe a "YUMMO" should be the Fodorville's version of our highest accolade!

Thanks for the trip report -
we also love Ess-a-bagel - because we think they are yummo
next trip we'll have to try the hearty soups to compare on the yummo factor....

hey, you gotta have a sense of humor.

I catch RR maybe once a week, and sometimes I even learn something from her !

I also loved Julia Childs, and even her voice could get to me some days.....

none of us are perfect

RR's "oh my gravy!" is, for me, as annoyiing as nails scraped against a chalkboard are!

trippinkpj, sometimes certain people post in their cups and don't remember it afterwards or are mortified and apologize, just fyi.
