The Daily GLOB


Happy Wednesday!



Good morning GLOBers and happy National Mint Julep Day.  Now there there is something civilized about the idea of lunching out with a mint julep aperitif.  For your information that is coming from a GLOB Master that has never enjoyed a mint julep. Were you aware of the fact that a mint julep is traditionally made with four ingredients: mint leaf, bourbon, sugar, and water.  Did you know GLOBers the mint julep may be considered as one of a loosely associated family of drinks called “smashes” (the brandy smash is another example, as well as the mojito), in which fresh mint and other ingredients are muddled or crushed in preparation for flavoring the finished drink.  I think I will stick to my duly allotted two beers a day regimen for my alcohol constitution thank you very much..



It is Union St. Downtown Farmers Market Wednesday and Market Elder Charlie Lybrand is feeling good about seeing sweet corn at the market:

053018Vendoe"Locali sweet corn is now in season at the market. Another omen of the looming summer heat is yard long beans now beginning to  be harvested. Organic cherry and plum tomatoes are plentiful. Watermelons have joined cantaloupes in increasing quantities. Peaches are still available. While displays of beautiful bouquets in a myriad array of colors and styles can be found. New potatoes are in season also along with an abundance of squash. Cool weather lettuces, snow peas, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collards and turnips are still being harvested while ever increasing amount and varieties of beans and blueberries continue the showcase of warm weather crops. Strawberries are nearing the end of their season.  Grass fed beef and chicken as well as  seafood are offered every Wednesday."

Check the markets products page for a definitive listing of produce. Organic coffee and kombucha are served each week along with a wide variety of prepared foods.

BLACK FILMS MATTER: Tomorrow night at 7:30 the Hipp Cinema presents the first of its Black Films Matter series with the one night only screening of Robert Downey Sr.'s Putney Swope. When its chairman dies, an advertising firm’s executive board must elect someone to fill the position. Each member, unable to vote for himself, casts a secret ballot for Putney Swope (Arnold Johnson), the firm’s only black executive, assuming he wouldn’t receive any votes from the other members. But once in power, Swope makes radical changes to the firm — like keeping only one white employee and refusing to advertise harmful products — all under the firm’s new moniker, “Truth and Soul, Inc.”

BEST BEER CANS EVER: In 2002, Colorado’s Oskar Blues Brewery took advantage of a new, small-batch canning system, becoming the first modern craft brewer to put its product in aluminum.  Now cutting-edge breweries have an unspoken initiative to insure the imagery on the outside of their packaging is as amazing as the liquid inside.
