The Poore Farm

When I lived over in Kenwick, I was introduced to the wonderful delivery of fresh farm eggs, straight to my door. Once every two weeks, like magic, beautiful brown eggs appeared on my porch, waiting patiently to be turned into scrambled eggs, eggs in a basket, cookies, or to help me put a beautiful sheen on top of challah. I was super bummed Continue reading “The Poore Farm”

CTK Oktoberfest

We went last night. If you weren’t there then you were the only one. It was a blast. So many people, so many choices of food. West 6th selling Amber and IPA. Funnel cakes. BHG foods. Brats. Pizza. Gelato. The Kentucky Ale line was too long so I’m not sure which beers they have.

And thick slices of bacon with a peanut butter dipping sauce. That one, I didn’t try. You’ll have to let me know, it’s not a step I’ll be taking anytime soon… that is unless someone swears by it. Then I’ll try it… because really, how bad can it be. It’s bacon.

Gin Blossoms were last night and tonight is Fastball. There are a few live acts before so come early

Bring cash but not too much since you can get sucked into the gambling and BINGO.

Pretty please, carpool. This is in a residential neighborhood so please be good neighbors.

The space at the corner of High Street and Euclid is being prepared for a new restaurant. This spot has had trouble staying filled since Buddy’s moved out. The most recent tenant, Glenn’s Creek Beer Exchange, closed a year ago. The Macho Nacho is expected to open in mid-September 2015. Providing Tex-Mex foods to the local populace isn’t anything new but their promised delivery service is. According to their website, the place will be set up as a sports bar inside with 25-30 tvs. Stay tuned for more pictures as the transformation progresses.
