You didn't even mention who makes the pizza...just the girl who waited on you at the window.  Don't you really think the Italian Gator preparer ought to get a shout out?  They're the one that made that delicious thing!!!



The Daily GLOB


Happy Thursday!


GLOBmaster2017Hello GLOBers and happy Repeal Day!  Today in 1933 was the end of the GREAT EXPERIMENT and we were allowed to drink legally again.
Repeal Day is December 5th, 1933. This was the day that Prohibition, otherwise known as the great experiment, ended and America was free to consume alcohol once again. We want to make this a day that people recognize and appreciate by hosting the best cocktail party of the year! We take our inspiration from the cocktails that were lost to… the great music that came out of… the iconic clothing worn during… and the mixed bar culture that resulted from… Prohibition.  Hmmm this sounds like a good reason the GLOB Master can go have a drink after work this morning . . .




THE CAVE- Tonight at 8:00 there is a free showing of The Cave at the HIPP Cinema but you are asked to call and reserve tickets to make sure everyone has a seat. Oscar nominee Feras Fayyad (Last Men in Aleppo) delivers an unflinching story of the Syrian war with his powerful new documentary, The Cave. For besieged civilians, hope and safety lie underground inside the subterranean hospital known as the Cave, where pediatrician and managing physician Dr. Amani Ballour and her colleagues Samaher and Dr. Alaa have claimed their right to work as equals alongside their male counterparts, doing their jobs in a way that would be unthinkable in the oppressively patriarchal culture that exists above. Following the women as they contend with daily bombardments, chronic supply shortages and the ever-present threat of chemical attacks, The Cave paints a stirring portrait of courage, resilience and female solidarity.


KEG OF LAUGHS - Tonight at 9:00 at the World of Beer, Tioga Town Center, 140 SW 128th St Ste B  “The Gainesville Comedy Writers” presents the finest and brightest comedians. Come prepared to laugh the night away!!  Follow us on Facebook at Keg of Laughs.  Happy Hour pricing during the show!. For any questions please contact us at 352.559.6593 or



UF Carillon Studio Concert Series -  The UF Carillon Studio Concert Series offers listeners the chance to hear the UF Carillon performed in a 50-minute recital. Programs are distributed at the south base of the tower and listeners are encouraged to find a location at least 100 feet from the Century Tower for an optimal listening experience. Bring a blanket or lawn chair. 375 Newell Dr., University of Florida.


What are your lunch plans now that you know this is Repeal Day GLOBer? Tell the GLOB Master where you will be eating and drinking your lunch I can join you for a drink or two . . .  I think.


Today in the GLOB!

Burger Fi

Expectations for a speedy lunch grew dim as the lunch line moved slowly, inch-by-inch, French Fry- by – French Fry until it was my turn to order. The Giant, brightly lit menu boards were handy time killers as I gazed upon the neon-lit menu with lunch options from the Burger Fi Bacon Cheeseburger, to the Burger Fi Breakfast All Day Burger. - READ MORE

Regarding the nut butter fad

Alternative nut butters are certainly having a moment, what with the rise of nut allergies in children, and many schools and airlines going nut-free to avoid any potential health risks or public relations headaches. - READ MORE

Batter, breading basics

Have you ever dropped a naked, skinless chicken breast into the deep fryer? The moment it enters a vat full of 400°F oil, a couple of things start happening. This is when you'll quite rightfully say to yourself, "Ah, I wish I had battered that first."  - READ MORE




Food & Wine Holiday Gifts - The Food & Wine website and magazine is focusing on gifting ceramics, kitchen tools, pantry staples, spirits, and more from our favorite restaurants around the country.  Check it out on this link.




Daily GLOB MUSIC FACTOID: Today in 1987 the Jesus And Mary Chain were banned from appearing on a US music TV show after complaints of blasphemy when the group's name was flashed across the screen. The CBS show asked the band to be called JANC but the group didn't agree.



If you're still hungry and need a good lunch idea FOLLOW THIS LINK to Gainesville's Lunch Out Blog Instagram page.  This is where the GLOB's Image Editor Erica Corbett takes great pleasure in sharing amazingly looking, deliciously yummy images of what we are thinking about, contemplating seriously, and eventually eating for lunch in the Urban GLOB.

Have a Thoroughly therrific Thursday lunch GLOBer and I will see ya right here tomorrow for the best darn day of the week!
