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,

    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.

    Mike I just wanted to thank you for your tireless efforts to keep Gainesville informed and entertained with your Daily GLOB. You consistently remind me of the great events going on in our city and of the many delicious food offerings available in our wide range of eateries.

    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!
