Fearing Leaves The Mansion .. Kim Schlegel Whitman Sells RSVP and so much more ... Print E-mail
by Sharon Adams    Mon, Mar 27, 2006, 01:51 AM

* Executive Chef Dean Fearing leaves The Mansion - and they sooo have the renovation spirit and action going in every way ...  Link to Dotty Griffith's, Dallas Morning News Food Critic, interview, background links and more:

This photo by Dana  Driensky at July 2003 BBQ - The Mansion on Turtle Creek - A Rosewood Hotel .  It's The Barbwires ... Dean (far right) and his band of chefs entertained after the 2003 BBQ dinner ...which was fabulous entertainment in itself.



*  Shane Krige, General Manger, The Mansion on Turtle Creek - A Rosewood Hotel - has fire happening on his own:

* Lynae Fearing (Mrs. Dean) and Tracy Rathbun (Mrs. Kent) are set to blast off on their own restaurant venture ...   Again, Dotty Griffith nailed it months ago:


More photos and links:


Why stop there. 

In the google search of tons of keywords, found this totally, um, unrelated story:

SARASOTA, Fla., January 10, 2004: The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota Welcomes Chef Dakota Weiss to The Beach Club Grill ... She worked with Fearing at one time and has been at Ritz-Carlton since 2004.)  We go to Sarasota each summer. Will  arrange an interview:) 

The official release:

More quelling rumors with fact:

* Kim Schlegel Whitman sells RSVP to Gil's Elegant Catering.
  Reporting from the release is fine ... whatever.  Prefer the interview, or rather, interviews ... Neither one has posted the details on their websites. Read the release:

*  Saturday night At the GALT (Greyhound Adoption League of Texas) auction and dinner, athletes showed up buffed, smiling, tall and handsome ... oh, my, in person, it's just really something else ... and chatted about T.O. ... so many sports stars sharing personal stories.    Writing that one as soon as John Hudson can get me the images.  

*  And John Hudson, by the way, has had one of his images accepted as a 2007 background image for Microsoft's  new software.  A regular guy from here ...

Now, that  rocks!

* And now for Something Completely Different ... Thank you, Monty Python and flashback to Robert Hoffman's days at National Lampoon and his "today's words" at TACA's Silver Cup Awards just a couple of weeks ago, delivered most eloquently by Inge-Elise Lange.  

Not a dry eye in the house and rightfully so.  Marguerite Hoffman, also a 2006 Silver Cup Award recipient, his wife and mom to the kids, was on the spot and delivered her message like she was being guided from heaven.  

Imagine (or remember) living with the kick-in-the-stomach hollow pain of the person you so love, watching acute leukemia overtake their smiling, wry, insightful soul and stomp their clear eyes into that little bit of hazy 'so what happens when' happens right now. That's what's happening to Robert. They are both very brave. That bravery and confidence shows in their love and in the spirit of their words to thousands that day. They are not making excuses. They are making truth, embracing family and we get to be there.  It was wonderful.  More to come.

* Lunch Friday the 31st:
For those of you who lunch .. guys and gals ...  don't skip out, so to speak, on Julia Sweeney's Talk Series this Friday at the Park City Club,
