GLOB is an acronym for Gainesville’s Lunch Out Blog, an acronym that I’m hoping -- with your help -- will become a staple in the ever-continuing discussion among folks in Gainesville about “What’s for lunch?”  If you don't know where to submit your comment you can include your posting below.

    Alex, you should put this post on fb under "Gainesville Word of Mouth" probably would get the word out better for you. Good luck

    Busy week for ChayaVeda, Yoga class today and every Wednesday, 5:30-6:45pm at the Santa Fe College Center for Innovation, and the ChayaVeda Transformative Wellness Program at UF Health tomorrow at 5:30pm. I hope many people will take advantage of these community group offerings to learn about my unique Ayurvedic approach to healthcare and wellness and stay tuned for information about the opening of The ChayaVeda Integrative Healing Arts Studio, Gainesville's first community Ayurvedic Clinic for an Ayurvedic approach to healthcare and wellness and the art and science of living well.

    I think you should stick to your 3 restaurant rule limit and let Chipotle go... :-)

    Maybe you can add a link to your page for "GLOB" listings in Gainesville Food Deserts. So for instance if there is a new place in areas that are on the USDA map for food deserts (online here- , you will be informing persons in these areas (as well as the larger area, since hopefully the businesses will succeed). Win-win? In fact the new Chipotle location is not shown as a food desert, and the campus location at least does a robust business so may not need GLOB promotion.

    As always, I have enjoyed tremendously from the rain music, the the corn cooking, the sugar recommendations, and the weather underground. You have a fine mind GLOB Master. It is such a pleasure that you offer us this GLOB service. J

    Good morning Glob guy, Mr. Mike Sanford. I think the most beautiful tree in Gainesville is a Southern Red Cedar, located at the corner of SW 3rd Ave. and SW 10th St.., however I may be a little bias because the tree was planted there by the City of Gainesville to honor the volunteers that was awarded the 2016 Albert Massey volunteer award winners, which included my husband. So this will be my pick.

    Hi Mike. The most beautiful tree is the magnolia grandiflora just outside my kitchen window. I bought this tree in 2006 for $5. It was root-bound and sickly looking. I planted it, nurtured it, and this week it bloomed for the first time! Ten years of nurturing this little tree has given me joy! Your pal, Jackie Betz

    I think a most beautiful tree in Gainesville is the oak on the NW corner of the Thomas Center Lawn, with limbs branching out to shade a large area so people can enjoy the area even on a very hot day.

    After reading your review of The Clock, I went to their website. And there began my befuddlement. You say they are open 24 hours daily, heading your article as such, and mentioning it as a place to go after the bars close. However, on The Clock's website, they list closing hours at 10:00 weekdays. 10:30 weekend nights. Which is it? On a personal note, I went by there about 2 months ago at 11 p.m., and found them closed.
