Re: “Peace & Tofu at Magnolia Grove Monastery

I attended a cooking retreat at Magnolia Grove back in March. We learned many delicious recipes.

Re: “Beer With Me

All so very true. But can someone tell me as to how light/lite beer became so popular? Admittedly they snuck it in during the cocaine flood of the 70's but, now?

Re: “Beer With Me

When the Cash Saver on Madison was Piggly Wiggly, they used to carry Dixie as well as their dark beer variation called Blackened VooDoo. I used to buy it there all the time for sort of the same reason as the author's: it reminded me so much of trips to New Orleans. I wonder with all their craft connections if the Cash Saver folks could get Dixie now?

Re: “The Big S: A Very Memphis Bar

I found a spelling error in the last paragraph.

It's spelled "NashVILLAIN" not "NashvillIAn"

Re: “The Big S: A Very Memphis Bar

If you're a white middle class DB millennial unable to swing that go to India and beg on the streets selfie why not go to a black bar where they serve beer in 40 oz containers! Soon the place will fill up on the weekends with DB white frat boys in boat shoes and khakis looking to appropriate someone's authenticity. Burp!

Re: “The Big S: A Very Memphis Bar

i drive in/around this neighborhood weekly; not the safest part of town to grab a frosty beverage.

Re: “The Big S: A Very Memphis Bar

I like this series. Gives me some places to check out that I've seen of heard of in my 15+ years of Memphis residency. Kudos

Re: “Beer With Me

Steel Reserve 211 is 8%, highest ABV available by law.

Your logic is invalid.

Re: “Beer With Me

Busch Light was my CDB of choice in college. I dated a girl who's dad would always share one of his Hamm's. So I tried to keep a Busch Light six pack in his fridge at all times. Today, PBR is my choice brand and I am neither young nor a hipster. Still, you can beat the clean, refreshing taste of a Miller High Life pony.

Re: “Beer With Me

Lumping Budweiser in with the Nasty Lights, Milwaukee's Best, Schaeffer's and Keystones of the world is insulting. While Budweiser is not a craft level, it's still tiers above those you mentioned and is probably far and away the best mass produced beer in the US. America!

Re: “Upsetting the Food Cart

You're right, it's just too hard to regulate disadvantaged small business entrepreneurs out of the food service industry if they aren't locked inside a building first.

Best to ban the whole mobile food industry. Last thing we need is some pleb bootstrapping himself up to a brick and mortar store and getting ideas above their station.


Keep that wingtipped boot down hard on those scrofulous peasants, that's the best plan. Lord knows if they ever get on they'll be the ones doing the neck stepping, so it's best to get those kicks in while they're down.

/\the above post contains satire.

Re: “Upsetting the Food Cart

Plus inspecting a fixed location is easier since you know where it is and where it will be tomorrow. A food truck or cart is .... MOBILE ! And can be hard to catch when its time for an inspection. And forget about surprise inspections since the HD doesn't know where you will be that day. Maybe food trucks/carts should register with HD and state where they will be operating each day and if they are operating elsewhere there should be a fine?

Re: “Liquor Before Beer …

I always heard the adage as "liquor before beer, never fear; beer before whiskey, mighty risky". And doesn't it sound more pithy? More alliterative? Or even more southern?

I agree it's good advice not to drink on an empty stomach, especially with hard liquor. I find bread is usually available at a bar, so it's a good idea to eat a little to provide a buffer against rapid alcohol absorption (sure recipe for a hangover). And watch the alcohol content in your beer -- there's much more variation these days among brands, especially with craft beers. It started with those "ice" beers, that were about 5 percent alcohol (stronger than the normal 3.5 percent mainstream beers), but now you might order a craft beer that pushes 7 or even 9 percent. I drink beer mostly for the taste, but unfortunately my drinking arm only has one speed setting, so I must avoid the high-alcohol beers!
