All right, loyal readers, I'm outta here for a whirlwind 48 hours of last-minute details and then a week of margaritas, more margaritas and, one presumes, something to eat.
I leave you in the more than capable hands of Jeanette Kozlowski, who has been doing a fine job keeping us all up to date on the adventures of Gordon Ramsay. She'll bring you your favorite daily Gut Check features in my absence.
I'll be back the week after next, tanned, rested and ready to take Gut Check into the holiday season.
Have a great week. Eat something good.
