The show in a second, but this was just the best at this past Thursday’s NBA Draft.
Lance, Frank and I talk a little beer, a little Sparrow, and a little Chicago.
Loooooong time Palm Executive Director Jim Martin and Executive Chef Tony Tammero join us to talk all things Palm from the new look to the new menu to what’s up with the portraits. Unfortunately we didn’t get our off-air discussion of what a “pescetarian” is as Tony looked at me like I was an alien. Good stuff with the guys. New look Palm opens July 8th.
Eric Warner and David Graham were cool enough to bring us some Hop Delusion as we discussed Karbach’s little beer empire. Fun conversation with a great background on how their seasonal Love Street got its name.
Sarah Johnston from Fat Cat Creamery was kind enough to bring
me us some Cat’s Meow Mexican Vanilla among other goodies. Sarah is getting ready to open up the brick and mortar at 1901 Shepherd.
–On the heels of Houstonia comes another Houston food magazine, Sugar and Rice. Houston Chronicle with all the details.
–Sandy Witch is ready to be unveiled at Grand Prize and Eater Houston has a pic of the menu. Chex mix. ’Nuff said.
–Did something happen to Paula Deen?
–There are some things in life that are simply worth fighting for. I can’t think of a more appropriate example than fighting over the correct way to make Kool-Aid. Brandon Crossley is our 22-year-old Kool-Aid aficionado. His dad was apparently so bad at making Kool-Aid that Brandon had to slap him upside the head a couple of times. For some reason the cops had a problem with that.
–Twinkies will return in mid-July. Yawn.
Oh, my bad, did you yawn? Sorry. Oh man, did you yawn again? I’ll stop now.
–If breweries released Game of Thrones beers like Iron Throne Blonde Ale and Take the Black Stout then you sure as hell better believe the last season of Breaking Bad is getting in on the action. Heisenberg’s Dark is the offering of Marble Brewery which is, not surprisingly, located in Albuquerque. Personally I’d like a Jesse’s IP-Yo.
–I find Pizza Hut pretty disgusting and I’m thinking a Pizza Hut firebaked style (uh huh) flatbread isn’t going to change that.
–Oh, thank goodness. Another Doritos Locos Taco or Tacos or Loco or some such is on the horizon.
–Honestly I’m not sure what took so long for a national fast food franchise to adopt pretzel buns as part of a burger. Unless I’m forgetting one I think Wendy’s is the first.
–I like my women like I like my tequila. Yep, aged in whiskey barrels. Wait, I’m not sure I like that all.
