Live Tweeting 'Top Chef,' Round 5

After weeks of trying different strategies for my experiments in the live tweeting of "Top Chef: Las Vegas," I think I found the one that works. Tonight at 10, I'll be tweeting my snarkiest best, complete with nicknames old (BroVo = the Brothers Voltaggio; Webelo = Mattin) and new (Perhaps Kevin is Scruffy, Eli is Squiggy and Jennifer is Saucy?). And I'll do it from the comfort of a new Twitter feed, @WaPoFoodLive. That way I can clog the feed and post spoilers to my heart's content, knowing that only the forewarned will be playing along.

As always, follow in the space below or catch up afterward.
