Best Cuban sandwich in town? I'd vote for La Familia. Service is pretty "no nonsense," but the sandwiches are very good.

Happy Wednesday!



Good morning GLOBers and Happy National Shrimp Day! Yum. I remember as a child shrimping off the coastal bridges, in deep conversation with pals, discussing the idea if you had to eat something from the ocean raw shrimp would be the best answer.  Interesting these young Southern Boys had no ideas about sushi at that time in their lives. Are you aware fi the fact that every shrimp is actually born male, and some develop into females.   Well did you know in the GLOB Master's opinion the best fried shrimp in Gainesville can be found at Harry's Seafood Bar & Grille where they cook up their fried prawns just like my daddy used to do with a light coating of cracker meal. DOUBLE YUM!



It's Union St. Downtown Farmers Market Wednesday and Market Elder Charlie Lybrand is expecting a peach of an afternoon:
