Comment of the Day!


After reading your review of Hogan's the other day, I decided to give them a try.  Wow, you did not lie.  What a great sandwich. We saw a couple eating salads, and that sure looks like an good option, too!  Four of us went, and two of us could not finish our food. Really good sandwiches, really great prices, and so many choices!  We started making plans to go there again before we had even left the place.  Thanks, Mike!

Happy Tuesday!


GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers and Happy National World Whiskey Day. Think about this for  a minute.  People all over the world are toasting their favorite adult drink celebrating the fact the number next to the Whiskey’s name refers to the age of the youngest whiskey to produce that specific product.

Two drinks later I had to go get the car and drive the very interesting, sleeping woman home.

Tired of sharing at restaurants

Mass-market restaurants, where entree portions tend to be big enough to feed an N.B.A. starting five, are getting into the sharing craze, too. Sharing, the argument goes, is more communal, lets diners taste more dishes and is more in tune with the way large swaths of the world eat. - READ MORE
