Jon Christiansen, Bar Manager, Monsoon East & Ba Bar "The rapid acceleration of time, that I have seriously lollygagged on piano lessons for Junior, and the continuance of John Boehner."
Brian & Jaime Brooks, Chefs/Owners, Hunger "Liquor taxes going through the roof!
Brad Glaberson, Owner/ Executive Chef, Cucina Fresca "My biggest disappointment in 2012 was slipping my L3 disc in my back and being stuck on my couch for months...

Maria Hines, Chef/Owner, Tilth & Agrodolce "Bisato's closing.
Jason Wilson, Chef, Crush "Nobody's dreams disappoint, every independent restaurant represents someone's dream and lifelong investment.
