Pssst! Got a sec to chat?

We are utterly thrilled when readers want to hang out and talk – whether it's amongst themselves or in response to pieces we've posted. We want Eatocracy to be a cozy, spirited online home for those who find their way here.
Consider the weekly Coffee Klatsch post as your VIP lounge – the primary comments thread for readers who'd like to chat about topics not related to the articles we're running. That way, everyone knows where to find each other, and each post's comments section remains on topic.

You can always find it from the link in the left rail, or by bookmarking http://eatocracy.cnn.com/category/buzz/coffee-klatsch/. If things start to heat back up over the summer, we'll go daily again.

Personally, we've really enjoyed the flow of conversation this past couple of weeks, because conversations have been able to continue for people who don't visit every day – but it's a work in progress and we're always listening.

Your weekend went how?

    Howdy and TGIF....the good folks at CNN iReports finally got back to me on the format issue I was having and it worked! words are the same, just more readible (is that a word?) with paragraph breaks. We are heading back to the triple digits this weekend. Stay cool, stay dry (Turth), stay safe. :)

    49ers forums were hacked on 09/11. Site was down or intermittent for a while. Still under repair and patch.

    Apparently one of thousands of sites that were hacked on that day.

    Originated from Syria, according to web admins.

    Started Brady and had Dobson in the flex last night in fantasy football. Things started out well then went to crap.

    Good morning all from a fairly wet and soggy Denver, CO.
    Not sure if this is getting much national coverage, but Boulder county has been declared a disaster area, we have schools closed all over the place and in some places, bridges and roads are washed out. The Denver metro area usually receives about 15" of rain annually. Some parts of town received 18" just this week (nods to AleeD)

    So if anyone needs me, I will be building an ark in the basement.

          HOOOWWWW! do you think that show would do in the ratings?

          September 10, 2013 at 10:06 am |
        • AleeD®@Sir Biddle

          HOOOWWW timely that you should ask. I was discussing various Mel Brooks movies with a respected friend yesterday. HOOOWWW do you (and all the Klatschers) think those movies would go over if they were newly released to theaters today? Blazing Saddles? History of the World Part 1? I would thoroughly enjoy them today, but the current PC police? Probably not so much.

          Frankly, I think our society has become hyper-sensitive to any and everything. But I'm sure me even saying that fact, has someone up in arms.

          Chappelle Show was awesome. Key and Peele has been helping to fill that void. Watched the 'Best of' episode last night along with Season 3 trailer. Looks like a good upcoming season with several returning characters, such as Substitute Teacher.

    Ha! Good one JD:) But damn, I just read a fan was killed at the Stick yesterday when he fell off an elevated walkway. That just sucks.

    September 9, 2013 at 12:30 pm |
    • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

      Yeah, didn't know about that until this morning. Apparently it was right after kickoff and he was pretty drunk already.

      September 9, 2013 at 1:00 pm |

        Then I read about another less fatal fall in Indy, too.

    Hey-even my Hawks won! Wasn't much of a game though. Now the Niners/Packers-that was a game. I'm sure we'll hear from JDizz before long.

    • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

      Amazing. Seahawks CAN win away from the Linc.

      I knew Mathews was gonna pull something. But I think he got frustrated and cost himself a few thousand dollars.

      Kaep did exactly what I expected. Killed them with his arm.

      September 9, 2013 at 11:15 am |

        Yeah-Rodgers just never seemed to find a groove. Helluva game to watch though.
        BTW-we call it the Clinc.

      • Sir Biddle@Jdizz

        The Packers got taken with the blatant bad call. Even you have to admit that was a game changer in your favor.

          But Mathews gets away with punching him.

        • Sir Biddle@Jdizz

          True but its over with and nothing can be done about it. I know you hate GB because of the ex, so I can't argue with you.

      As I recall, Eili started out this way last year too, you'd think by now he'd be warmed up. Oh well, one down, fifteen to go.

      How was everyone's weekend?
