Northwest grille has by far the most delicious fried oysters in Gainesville - the best I've had outside of Apalachicola!  They also have a chicken dish called Chicken Caprini, chicken breast with creamy goat cheese on top.  Amazing.

Happy Wednesday!


GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers!  So yesterday morning if you will remember I opined about the venerable traits of a long time BBQ pit stop Bono's.  Thanks to several quick minded GLOBers for letting me know so much for Bob's stick-arounded-ness. It doesn't happen often but Bob's had closed its doors  unknowingly and there the GLOB Master was suggesting the shuttered restaurant for lunch!  Gulp, Groan, Many apologies for that miscue my lunch time pals.  Now,over on the NE side of Hoggetowne . . .




It is Union St Downtown Farmers Market Wednesday and Market Elder is Charlie Lybrand seeing some big green watermelons rolling into the market:

While displays of beautiful bouquets in a myriad array of colors and styles remain available. New potatoes are in season also along with an  abundance of squash. Cool weather lettuces, sugar snap peas, snow peas, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collards and turnips are still being harvested while ever increasing amount and varieties of beans, strawberries and blueberries continue the showcase of warm weather crops.

The Sweet Tea

"Mike and I already know the drill: Order two entrees to share; maximizing every meal experience is what we are all about! As this was lunch, the delicious-sounding 'Oops! I Dropped the Chicken Pot Pie' and the 'Cracker Crumb Fried Chicken,' were sounding divine."

Eating chicken wings correctly

The Serious Eats website has created a video about how to eat chicken wings. It's about how thoroughly you should eat them.  The GLOB Master was with a friend eating chicken wings and she was so impressed with my culinary technique she felt compelled to video taping me eating second and third chicken wing joints! - READ MORE

Over-the-top restaurant gimmicks

There's a fine line between being creative and ridiculous, and these restaurants have passed it. I get it, competition in the food service is high. You need to think outside the box to attract more customers. Bored Panada has found many absurd examples.  - READ MORE




MAGNETIC IMP[LANTS, MEDICAL PUNK, OH MY!  Louis Anderson, a 16-year-old aspiring biotech entrepreneur, eats dinner with an anarchist, a world-renowned tongue splitter and at least 30 people who have implanted themselves with magnets or radio-frequency identification chips, a.k.a. RFID implants.  We're at Grindfest, a meetup of biohackers, and Louis has been planning the trip for two years. They have a lot to talk about.



DAILY GLOB QUOTE OF THE DAY: "My favorite flavor of cake is more."




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 wonderful Wednesday lunch GLOBers and If you see the GLOB Master downtown this afternoon be sure to say hello.  If I miss you this evening I will see ya right here tomorrow.
