Ever get tired of the same old same old restaurants? A lot of us do, but even if you are not tired stick around for our show because you just may find some new places and fun places to eat.
Monday's show, as you may have already guessed is about unique restaurants. Wouldn’t it be fun to go out to eat and be able to share an unforgettable experience?
Gluten-free expert, author, coach and advocate Jules Shepard hosts a weekly show offering news, interviews with intriguing guests, gluten-free baking tips and otherwise lively conversation.
The ever popular conversation about how to eat out with gluten and other food sensitivities is the topic of this week's show. Joining Jules are two gluten-free dining gurus to discuss how to eat out safely.
Jennifer Harris (gfgotoguide.com and @gfgotoguide) works as a consultant to restaurants wanting to offer gluten-free dishes to their diners. Jennifer is also the Atlanta Gluten Free Food Examiner and has worked as a chef in a corporate kitchen and a gluten-free buyer for a health food store. A gluten-free diner herself, Jennifer brings many perspectives to dining out, gluten free.
Sandi Gaertner (fearlessdining.com @fearlessdining) is a Bay area consumer dining advocate. She and her family share in a gluten-free lifestyle which she blogs about. She has also compiled a database of over 500 Bay Area restaurants which highlights what the restaurants do to practice safe gluten handling practices.
Stephanie Speaks will discuss the topic of kids & restaurants! Some time ago a restaurant decided that no kids would be allowed after a certain time to allow people to have a nice quiet dinner. Some were in a an uproar. Another one decided that no kids were allowed. Again people were in the uproar! The latest situation was where a child threw food on a customer and the parent was asked to leave. The parent was upset and said had the restaurant not taken so long with her food then the kids wouldn't have been unruly. I could tell that she really just wanted to sit and eat her meal but sometimes you can't do that with little ones. How do you feel about the restaurant asking her to leave. The customer pitched a fit about having food thrown on him. Now she claimed that the waitress said something about coming back when the kids were older and under more control. The mom had alot of supporterts but I had mixed feelings about this. Let's talk about it!
We are back and more excited than ever to kick off our winter 2015 show series, which will examine restaurants that have catering arms too. It’s a growing segment of the industry and one that has not been properly explored – how to create a great relationship with a restaurant (for smaller private parties) that also has a catering arm for the larger ones.
“Restaurants, Private Rooms and Catering too!” will cover the small but burgeoning market of restauranteurs that do it all and well. Tune in on Wednesday, January 14th at noon as BOTH the Director of Catering Sales, Sarah Weisman, and in-house Director of Private Events, Jodi Lynn, for Epicurean Events join us. Wondering if you should host your next dinner in a private room or at home? We will answer that question, explore cost structures and private space possibilities in the Epiucrean group, which also owns four restaurants in New York: dell’anima, L’Artusi, L’Apicio and Anfora. The Italian inspired cuisine is driven by seasonal products and high caliber service that focuses on being friendly rather than formal; the Italian seeking guests are driven by the amazing tastes, homemade burrata and exceptional customer service.
After covering everything you ever wanted to know about liquor in our last series, it is time to discover where to find the best food to pair with those cocktails you now know all about!
Do you love to eat out as much as we do? Have you ever gotten sick after eating out? Did you know people are hospitalized and some die every day from food poisoning?
In this episode, we discuss with Dr. Harlan Stueven, a Medical Doctor specializing in Emergency Medicine and Medical Toxicology and Founder of DiningGrades.com, the issue of food poisoning and specific steps you can take to avoid it when eating out.
For those who eat out regularly, we also share how you can become a part of the solution through rating the restaurants you patronize, and in doing so, how you could sometimes eat out for free!
Visit our blog here for the two clips we had to cut from the interview, in the interest of time.
At the beginning of the show, I referenced a previous show about how healthy foods sometimes make us sick if we have food sensitivities. You can listen to the replay of that episode here!
As much as we in Boston and New England consider weather talk a sport, we're tired. In the past 10 days or so, we've had over five feet of snow, with no melting. It's Buffalo/Rochester levels and no longer amusing.
With closed offices and many emergencies, potential guests here have begged off short-term. Expect some activist City Councilors and likely Boston's Mayor...when we stop being Thunder Bay South.
Meanwhile, I'll set the stage with some of the trends and issues.
Of course, there'll be more 2024 Summer Games. We've already had a couple of Olympics shows. More are likely. One Councilor, Josh Zakim, is mirroring United Independent Party head Evan Falchuk calling for a referendum on whether Boston should or may host the games. The UIP wants a statewide vote and Zakim a citywide one. The Boston vote would be nonbinding and would be on the November 2015 ballot, when the whole Council is up for election. That really squeezes Mayor Marty Walsh.
Maybe more fun and only a little less loaded, if you pardon, a topic is the BYOB one from Councilors Steve Murphy and Michelle Wu to allow restaurants without liquor licenses to permit customers to bring their own wine or beer. Sure, that's common in towns around here as well as in much of the country. I'll provide a little background on our Blue Laws, liquor-license caps, and such exotic counterpoints as South Carolina’s mini-bottle and liquor locker games. Culture and greed collude here.
Maybe we can get to the failed (so far) effort to start a city commission to foster the interests of Black and Latino men and boys. The Council passed it unanimously and Walsh vetoed it. It already has something comparable for Black women and girls. This isn't over.
Two special days today. It is National Anthem Day and National Pancake Day.
Written by Francis Scott Key, the Star Spangled Banner officially became the national anthem of the United States of America on March 3rd, 1931 by a congressional resolution signed by President Herbert Hoover.
After watching the bombardment of Fort McHenry from a prison ship, Francis Scott Key wrote the poem titled, “Defence of Fort M’Henry” on September 14, 1814. Thus, 38 years after declaring independence the United States was still at war with England.
In recent history, IHOP restaurants began National Pancake Day in 2006. Since that day, they have raised $16 million for charities. Today, people from around the country will once again celebrate National Pancake Day at IHOP restaurants and enjoy free short stack of pancakes. Guests are asked to consider leaving a donation for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
