Quick Bites

  • Starting off this week with a bit of a review. We slugged back our share of Original Schlitz Friday night at Green Mill. Guess what? It isn't that bad. Actually, as far as clean lagers go, we prefer it over Pabst Blue Ribbon (coincidentally, Pabst brews both). At $4 a bottle, it's also priced perfectly (PBR on draft at Green Mill runs $4.50).
  • Louis Glunz Beer Company has formed the "Glunz Beer Culinary Council." This Justice League of culinary greatness includes Paul Kahan, Mindy Segal, Richard Camarota of Custom House, MIke Roper and Ben Sheagren of Hopleaf, Cooper's - A Neighborhood Eatery owner Craig Foss, Siebel Institute of technology faculty member Randy Mosher, author Lucy Saunders, and chariman Jim Javenkoski. Not coincidentally, the restaurants represented also carry Unibroue beers.
  • Mike Nagrant waxes on about "green market dorks" in this week's New City
  • Check out these "family recipes" from John McCain's wife Cindy. turns out these "original" recipes were lifted from the Food Network with no other sourcing than McCain herself. Once news broke, Cindy McCain, like a good Stepford wife, placed the blame where it belonged, on the head of an intern.
