I realize Hatch chiles, like Copper River salmon, are backed by massive marketing campaigns and there are many other peppers that deserve equal accolades. That said, I’ve tried a few products from Central Market’s Hatch Chile Festival. The pepper flavored chips and queso are crazy spicy (and great with margaritas). However run, don’t walk, for the chicken sausage with Hatch chiles and CM’s fresh flour tortillas. And Hatch chile pimento cheese, mac and cheese, risotto cakes, and chicken salad. The festival continues through Sunday.15 Comments »
I listen to The Ticket on my drive to and from work. During my commute, I have heard numerous commercials for Twin Peaks, the sort of Hooters ski lodge that started in Lewisville. These feature failed broadcaster/NFL QB Sean Salisbury. The first part is all about Twin Peaks’ cold, cold beer. So that’s fine. But they end with Salisbury going on and on about the “scenic views” — which, given the restaurant is named Twin Peaks, and again, it’s basically a sort of Hooters ski lodge, you can gather what he’s referring to.
I’m not a prude, but isn’t it odd that Twin Peaks would have Salisbury doing these bits, since the rumors why he lost his gig with both ESPN and 105.3 the fan here centered on Salisbury’s various shenanigans with his cellphone (showing female coworkers pics of what he referred to as “Little Sean,” sexting, etc.)? Or maybe that makes him the perfect person to be the ogler in the spots. I don’t know. Not saying the rumors are true — actually, the “Little Sean” party is totally true — but it’s all about perception. Anyway. Give me my $50.14 Comments »
Bing, Microsoft’s search engine, is test driving a “Food Cart Finder” feature to enable people to find local food carts and trucks on the move using their twitter feed. Alas, it’s only in Portland for now.
Hey City of Dallas and Dallas County officials, pay attention to this. Happy Eaters = Happy Voters. And new revenue sources.
Dishers, what do you think? Do you want 250 carts and food trucks in Dallas and a fancy food finder that gives you up to the minute information on what is available and where?6 Comments »
