Clean Plate Charlie Night at PL8; Win Ann Burrell's Cook Like a Rock Star

We're doing a little housekeeping on the blog with a one-two punch. The first is a reminder to mark your calendar for October 6, Clean Plate Charlie Night at PL8, during which diners at the restaurant between 6 and 9 p.m. can weigh in on menu items to help shape the final cut.

At the close of the meal,

customers will receive ballots that allow each patron to provide feedback on pluses, minuses, and in-betweens for the newly revamped restaurant.This isn't a limited-seating, communal-table event. It's available to all diners who attend the restaurant during designated hours. 

And two, for those of you looking for free stuff, we've got a copy of the new Ann Burrell cookbook, Cook Like a Rock Star. Burrell is host of Food Network's Secrets of a Restaurant Chef and cohost of a new show with Bobby Flay, Worst Cooks in America, for which she recently held auditions in Miami.

Readers who'd like a copy of the book, the question is this: In the comments, tell us two common mistakes of the inexperienced cook. Be clever. And be sure to include your email address. The winner will be chosen Friday morning.
