Clean Out the Refrigerator Friday

Fresh Market Renderings: Do we bloggers talk? Of course we do! Had a fun lunch the other day with Cory from Property Lines and, as promised, he's posted the architects drawings of Fresh Market. (This, of course, in lieu of any really Fresh progress over there. So far, they've moved dirt and added curbs.) Parking at the old Atlas was precious, so I'm happy to see that as they've lost space making it pretty, they'll be adding spaces on top of the multi-level building.

Turkeys, Turkeys: Looking for a fresh, local, presumably medication free, bird for the holidays? Going Local offers a few sources for ordering local, fresh turkey, but time is running out. Additionally, Joe's Butcher Shop is taking orders, as is The Goose, but deadlines are fast approaching -- like *tomorrow*. (Using a frozen bird? The rule my mother always used was to thaw 24-hours for every 5 pounds.)

Workout, Then Beer: Not that we're likely to see football players switching to Coors Light anytime soon (even though it *is* the official beer of the NFL), a recent news article touts that beer may be better for your salt and electrolyte-deficient body after a workout than water. Well, duh. While scientists aren't advocating beer after a workout, it makes sense since calories and carbs can be better than water -- sometimes. And, hey, if you're one of those people who unnecessarily drinks sports drinks all the time (with all the sugar and carbs included), beer could be a better option. Study from the UK via Accidental Hedonist.

Hmmm, Thanks. I Think: Hey, I don't mind if you use my stuff, just send some traffic my way (and click on some ads, will ya'?) I'm flattered that columnists like Indy Star's Susan Guyette consider me a must read but a little attribution would be nice. (Check out her "Restaurant Buzz" at the end. I'll leave it to regular readers to decide how familiar it seems. Thanks to a reader for the pointer.) The one new piece of news regarding what's replacing Mo's Loading Dock gives me the fear. Apparently, according to Guyette, "you'll recognize the name of the famous food outlet as soon as the deal is signed, sealed and delivered." "Famous food outlet" is not necessarily good news.

Hey,
Recently discovered Feed Me...I have two blogs about upper Midwest (wisconsin)- I'd love to trade links...

Just checked out the Buzz; appears to have been edited to something impersonal now. Hmmm... too bad a link couldn't have been added pointing to Feed Me/Drink Me instead.

Good call on calling Susan out - I thought the same thing when I read her column...

Congrats on such a great blog - I'm one of the newer unique users you mentioned a few days ago. Am now making your blog a daily stop on my internet browsing...

Have a great weekend!
