I'm sensing some sandwich mania. This week's Food News column is about the serious sandwiching going on at bleu and eighty3, and I was recently contacted by a national magazine that's doing a feature on sandwiches from across the country.
Here are two vegetarian takes on the classic club.
There are few things better than enjoying quality craft beer with like-minded drinkers, but the 3rd Annual MS Brew Movement benefiting the Mid South Chapter of the National MS Society allows us such an experience with an extra incentive: the chance to contribute to a great cause.
“This is an event to really bring together to appreciate craft beer and home brew, but mostly to spread awareness about Multiple Sclerosis in one venue,” said Joe Barnes, local homebrewer and organizer of the event.
Barnes and the Memphis Brewers’ Association hosted their 2nd Annual Midtown 5-PubKrawl last Saturday in preparation for next week’s Brew Movement. Participants visited five Overton Square watering holes— Boscos Squared, Bayou Bar & Grill, Blue Monkey, Molly’s La Casita, and Dublin House— in an effort to raise funds for MS.
“I really wanted to do something that stands apart,” said Barnes, “and with Bluff City Brewers having done Art on Tap for years and other events, I said why not do something like that for MS. It took a couple of years of pestering the local MS Society people to say, ‘well, people do wine events, why not a beer event.”
The Brooks' rotunda was jam-packed last night for the Farmer Mixer, an event to kick off the museum's Farmers Market film series beginning Saturday, March 3rd.
The idea for the mixer was to bring farmers, locavores, foodies, etc., together. The draw was the menu prepared by the Brushmark's Wally Joe and Andrew Adams and Justin Fox Burks (pictured at top), the Chubby Vegetarian.
The food ... wow!

Last night, Muddy's Bake Shop hosted its first real birthday party at their Sanderlin location.
Although the locally revered bakery opened in 2008, Muddy's was born on Leap Day, making yesterday their first official birthday. And for such a one-of-a-kind bakery, we expected nothing short of the quirky, fanciful celebration owner Kat Gordon put on.
