Commenting on/about the GLOB

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.
User reviews and comments that include profanity or personal attacks or other inappropriate comments or material will be removed from the site. Additionally, entries that are unsigned or contain "signatures" by someone other than the actual author will be removed. Finally, we will take steps to block users who violate any of our posting standards, terms of use or privacy policies or any other policies governing this site. Please review the full rules governing commentaries and discussions.

Thanks again . . . and Bon Lunch!

    For Thanksgiving, I made the squash lasagna recipe from Gainesville's Lunch Out Blog and it was awsome. Way more than I expected, the way the flavors and textures melded together. Thanks for the tip!! See you at our holiday party and open house Saturday!

    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.
