This video, by Kyle Corley, illustrates how long the car line for the drive thru at the In-N-Out in Allen was around noon today. I wouldn’t wait that long to kiss George Clooney. Or, oh never mind. I’m over In-N-Out. Next trend up. Good work, Kyle.9 Comments »
Sigel’s Craft Beer Festival at the Greenville location on May 18 from 6 to 8 pm. Reps from 19 craft brewers will be on hand handing out samples of 36 craft beers. While you sip, keep an eye out for special guest, Michael Lalli, brewmaster at Choc Beer Co.
Just call Sigel’s at 214-739-4012 to RSVP and reserve your Craft Beer Festival Passport. This will get you tasters of 20 of the 36 Craft brews available. As you sample each beer, the rep will stamp your passport. When you have finished tasting, have your passport validated then turn it in to be entered in a prize drawing.
Oh yeah, and it’s free.

So, we were all set to hit the kick off of Central Market’s Passaporte España this evening from 5-8 for the Paella Kick Off in the parking lot. Clearly, the big sister in the sky has other plans. Thunderstorms and tornado warnings abound. CM’s media person tells me that the tent is up now (2:40 pm) and will stay up as long as the weather holds. Once the weather blows in, all bets are off.
The bottom line: unless you can go now, I’d suggest finding some indoor fun.
UPDATE: The EXPERT PAIRING: SPANISH FOOD & WINE class with Miguel Torres Jr., Quim Marques & Daniel Olivella scheduled for tonight at 6:30 pm will go on inside, in The Central Market Cooking School, as planned.
May is National Barbecue Month. As you limber up your flipping wrist in anticipation of the next few weeks, multitask by reading through these BBQ cooking tips from John McLemore’s book, DADGUM, That’s Good! Kickbutt Recipes for Smoking, Grilling, Frying, Boiling and Steaming and let us know what he left out. (Sure, some are no-brainers, and some are a little cheesy, but I’m willing to bet there’s a little nugget of new information in there for everyone.)2 Comments »

If you have volunteered with your local community garden for at least 2 years and are over 21 years old this could be your day! Robert Mondavi’s Woodbridge wine has partnered with the American Community Gardening Association to create the Giving Through Growing program in which they will award prizes totaling $40,000 to a local ‘Heroes’ who have a passion for gardening and a desire to improve their community while increasing the ability of fresh fruits and veggies in their neighborhoods. Applicants should apply here with their ideas on how to positively impact and enrich their neighborhoods through community gardens. Applications will be accepted until May 22 so don’t delay your submission. I love this idea as we see more and more community gardens popping up all around town with our continued slow food focus on eating locally sourced products and garden fresh ingredients.
Brooks Powell spent some time last night and early this morning at the opening of the first In-N-Out in Texas. Not only did he get to talk to the owner of the company, but he met the first guy in line and the first guy in the drive-thru line. These are serious INO fans (aka freaks).
