but it ain't my fault! One of the links provided for us on an article by Jeremy Iggers, "Longfellow grill is off the chain" doesn't work, or does work, but I'm not subscribing to the startrib online. Anyways, onward towards my very thoughtfilled comments on the readings for the day.
"My time at the times" - Towards the first part of her piece, I was like, "Damn, eight hot dogs?" Anyways the restaurant frequented by the mob kept my interest, and her stories about how far some restaurants would go to please her when she was recognized was funny. It was nice how she didn't "buy" into the hype at some restaurants, though she seemed kind of harsh at times. Of course, she is a food critic.
"Getting the goods" - Another Minnesota article, woo hoo! You know I've always mixed up Murray's and Morton's, as to whose originally from here. Too many fancy steakhouses with names that start with M. Anyways, this Mr. Freeman sounds like a total professional, of course 30 years of experience helps. Hey, an article on the Minneapolis farmer's market! I always get the Minneapolis and St Paul farmer's markets mixed up because I haven't been to either one in a long time. Anyways the complexity that Oceannaire has to go through to get it's fish is crazy. I don't think it's worth all the money and stress but hey, if you have a passion for something, then go for it.
Iggers "A slice of the market" - Galactic Pizza sounded pretty good but that story about how consuming hemp is "good" for the brain sounds kinda bogus. Of course, nothings wrong with hemp or anything =) Jakeeno's sound like more of my thing cause they seem offer more of what I like, the "tradional"..fake Italian pizza.
Iggers "Longfellow grill is off the chain" - Well since I couldn't read the article, I can only go by the title and I must say, Mr. Iggers is "hip" and "with it". Haha, he's got the slang goin on, off da chain! You cool wit me Mr. Iggers, fo sho. holla!Posted by poon0022 at June 19, 2005 11:15 PM
