Find Sub City

Maybe it's my joy of unearthing a hidden treasure, my love of carrying a single vessel of meats, cheeses and vegetables, or my upbringing with Joey Tribbiani- but my love of sub sandwiches is on a steep rise. I'd like to believe that every town has a great sandwich shop, but it's the ones that... Continue Reading →

News: snark and doughnuts

It's Monday! While braving an ice storm, here are a few news worthy goodies I managed to find despite all other conversation covering Jupiter. This article about the unexpected twitter gold you are missing out on. @Wendy's is all the snark you want to say out loud but usually can't if someone else is paying... Continue Reading →

Taste Test: Wilson’s Orchard hard cider

Wilson's Orchard, a gleeful orchard north of Iowa City that provides families with cider donuts and groves of apple-picking from August to October, recently started expanding their offerings.

Hoopla covered the background of it opening. Little Village released the menu. I figured I'd dive right in and drink half the cocktail menu, while I ate multiple selections from the food offerings from Pig & Porter. Last Thursday night, we stopped in for a late supper and to check out the newest place in town.... Continue Reading →

Art You’ll Want to Eat

I was following a trail of donuts the other day, and it led me straight to my second favorite thing next to food, Food Art. Comic artistry meets bright donuts, killer pizza, and rainbow food rain. I immediately considered reaching out to the artist to create a mural in my kitchen. Nothing adds flavor to... Continue Reading →

Weekend Souvenirs: mostly beers

A very important part of a long, holiday weekend is reflection. This eliminates the awkward interaction with coworkers when you see them Tuesday morning and they ask "how was your weekend?"
