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.
The GLOB encourages users to analyze, comment on and even challenge Gainesville's Lunch Out Blog articles, reviews and multimedia features.
Thanks again . . . and Bon Lunch!
Mike Sanford, Editor,
Gainesville’s Lunch Out Blog

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-http://www.ers.usda.gov/data/fooddesert) , 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.

My husband and I had burgers at Square 1 the other day. Best burger I've had in a while. Thick, juicy, and cooked just the way I like it. A bit pricey for a burger but well worth it if you've got a craving.

Thank you, Mike Sanford, for organizing such a fun and tasty Whiskey Tasting event! We were privileged to try some rare whiskies and enjoy great company. A BIG thank you to Mr. Sanford for inviting me and a BIG thank you to Mojo's Hogtown Bar-B-Que for picking such delectable liquid treasures and teaching me new things about whisky! Truly a once in a lifetime opportunity!
