Meet Us Monday: dream dinner dates

Dinner, well, really any meal, is a sacred time for us food lovers at rustmedia. Here are the people we'd love to dig into a plate of tacos with.

question: what four individuals (living or dead) would you want to eat dinner with?

Jeff, creative director: Easy. Jim, Pam, Ryan, the mayor, Barack Obama, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt (because at the end of the night, Bradand/or Angelina would have to pick him up, and I would get to meet them), ShiaLaBeouf (because of Disturbia), all the children of the world, Val Kilmer (but he probably wouldn't come, too famous), obviously George Clooney, and Jan, definitely (if there was room).

Jamie, project manager: My mom, Michael J. Fox, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (I think of them as a packaged pair), and Barack and Michelle Obama – it would be rude to invite one and not the other, right?

Mia: My dearest friend and mentor from undergrad, Father Bill Kottenstette, who was a 70-year-old Jesuit priest. Annie Dillard. Rod Kimble. Chris Martin of Coldplay. And if we could all eat together, I think that would be a pretty fun time.
