I rarely make it to Harry's Seafood Bar & Grille as I'm vegetarian and Harry's is simply not the first place I think of as veggie-friendly.  However, it seems lately that if I want to see the GLOB Master and Jules Gollner for lunch, it's got to be at Harry's.  We met there yesterday even though I was skeptical that I'd find something filling to eat, but Buz, now deceased Harry's General Manager, was extremely accommodating and my lunch of pasta and veggies was terrific.  I find that the staff at Harry's is always helpful and friendly.  We even had some confusion with the bill, but Buz cleared it up quickly and in a way that will make me want to go back to Harry's again.  That, and the pecan pie with caramel-bourbon sauce!  Truly worth the calories.

Happy Friday!


GLOBmaster2017GO GATORS GLOBers!  The Gator baseball magic continues as the Mighty Gators. freshman starter Jack Leftwich starred for the Gators on the mound. Meanwhile, the offense provided a pair of runs in the third inning and two more in the fifth to blow open a close game. Senior captain JJ Schwarz delivered the big hit, a two-run homer in the top of the sixth to put the Gators in front 5-0.   Making his first career CWS start, Leftwich survived throwing 54 pitches over the first two innings to settle into a rhythm and limit the Red Raiders to two runs over 6 1/3 innings. Florida stays alive and will face Arkansas on Friday night at 8 ET on ESPN. The Razorbacks defeated Texas and Texas Tech in their first two games in Omaha to stay in the winners bracket.

Mission Epicurious: Ice cream birthday

I love ice cream loaded with sprinkles. When my favorite local ice cream shop, Sweet Dreams, was celebrating its birthday on the very weekend of my birthday, I was enthused! I was even more over the moon  this anniversary entailed a "Crazy Flavor Weekend" for three magical nights in a row of 36 magically inventive flavors. - READ MORE

The GLOB Master is taking next week off for a couple special exciting, special projects that I will share upon my return GLOBer.  Have a fabulous Friday lunch, GO GATORS!  If you see the GLOB Master downtown be sure to say hello.  If I miss you this weekend I will see ya right here Monday morning.
