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!

Mike Sanford, Editor,

    I have eaten Cuban Sandwiches all over the country and world. Flaco's in Gainesville is one of the best. The Black beans are not that bad either.

    Mike: Just a quick suggestion. On your list of Food A-Z, it would be helpful to add a list of letters at the top of the page where you choose the letter of the alphabet to go to the restaurant you want. Thanks.

    This GLOB-blog gets better every day. I'm getting so much good information on places I've never eaten, and I find myself wanting to try all the new places! Thanks, Mike, for thinking of this great idea and bringing it to the public.

    Hi Mike,
    Your site looks great and I'm excited to watch it evolve as a useful and much-used tool.
    I needed to find a lunch spot near the mall over the weekend and checked out your google map by-location feature. Looking over available options, I was uninspired, then remembered Mr. Han's Gourmet Chinese restaurant. I was sure my mom and her beau, who were traveling through town, would love to meet there, but I was surprised the restaurant wasn't listed on your map. I gave them the address anyway, and lo - I learned that your GLOB is up-to-date. Sadly, since Mr. Han died in a car crash, his delightful restaurant has closed.
    But I guess you knew that.
    Keep up the good work, Mike, and THANK YOU!
    best of luck,

    Really looking good. When I typed in the "find food" box (orange bar below food by type and food by name)nothing happened. I typed in Black Beans. What is the function of that box?

    I've been given the gift of farming. And there's two words, which define success or failure in every seed I plant. 'I think' and 'I know'. When I plant a seed, I don't think it will grow, I know it will grow. Thinking sows doubt, knowing sows success with failure. And each failure provides a lesson for growth.

    I know two things. You're going to be the, 'to go to for good food'. Second, I get real hungry when I visit your site.

    I know this will probably not be possible, but a menu from these places would be a good idea. Might take up too much space, though. Pavlov's dog signing off....
