This is brilliant!

Not really the point but my favorite paragraph.

"They were made from field corn, the commodity crop that goes into high-fructose corn syrup, cattle troughs and ethanol. It accounts for 99 percent of the nation’s cornfields, and it is the only ingredient used at wastED that I’m convinced humans have no business eating."

We waste so much food. But that field corn is a huge part of the problem.
For wastED, a pop-up restaurant in Greenwich Village, Dan Barber and his crew went on a crosstown hunt for scraps to transform into tasty dishes, and they mostly succeeded.

I don't know if I've ever heard this band on the radio but I've loved every song of theirs that Google has played for me.

GastroFest 2015

Yesterday was the first ever Jacksonville GastroFest! Basically a local food tasting. I love those and I was amazed to find that Jax did not do one at all. But now we do! We have some great local restaurants and food trucks and bakeries, breweries, farmers and general food producers and it was amazing to get so many of them in one place.

I am an event junkie. This is my third event in as many weeks that I'm going to declare my new favorite! I even paid for VIP access for this one which is rare for me; free is my favorite word, cheap is a close second. However, the 4 star pass (5* only added alcohol and I don't drink) was worth every penny. After only visiting a couple tables, I already appreciated the ease of not counting tickets. I definitely ate more than its cost (and regretted it a little). And the VIP port-a-potty was impressively well appointed.

I arrived a few minutes before the event began at 11 AM and left just a few minutes before it ended at 10 PM. And I ate constantly. For 11 hours.

Everything was delicious and it's really hard to choose a favorite. Either the mini chicken waffles from Moxie or grits and sausage fried kitty ball from The Cat's Meow. Or the pork belly over sweet potato mash from Fish Camp. The Bold and Spicy Quinoa from Fresh Jax. Maybe the kale salad with Up in Smoke smoked pork butt by Conscious Eats which was actually the cooking lesson I watched. Fully Loaded's bread pudding. The Ovinte panini. Taverna's Mediterranean braised lamb with Israeli salad and tzatziki sauce... OMW.

Seriously, I can't decide. Then I think of the few (very few) things that I didn't get to try (because I was full, really full or they ran out) like Funkadelic Food Truck's grits and fish that I saw someone else with but missed (their gourmet grilled cheese was pretty awesome instead) or Tres Leches's grilled scallops (they ran out so fast) and I'm going to have to visit places...

And, of course, I attended the event mostly to get a MShack milkshake, which I did. After JSO made them move the truck about 2 feet, causing me to wait nearly 30 minutes in that one line... I think that was the final straw, though, I couldn't eat much after that. And it was a silly reason to attend because I can ride my bike to the Town Center location... But it worked out!

I need them to do this again but not until I'm hungry again. Next year should work.

One thing that I need to mention, though. I watched a homeless man who did not quite understand walk up to one of the vendors and ask for food. They very politely explained he needed tickets and he left. He clearly didn't know what was going on. And some of the other homeless and regulars were pushed off to the side. This park was a sanctuary for them and we're actively taking it away without providing an alternative. It makes me sad.

Way too many pictures of food attached.

I echo what +Jeremy Hodges​ ​said:

There are so many things that call for our attention and our limited resources.  I hope that you find this to be a worth expenditure of either.

If you are able to help financially, then please do so.  If you are only able to share this with others, then that would also be a help.

Several saints who are hard workers in the kingdom have vouched for these loyal disciples.

Thanks for your consideration in advance.
 
If you are able to, please help these good people...

Story
Tagline
Generally boring.
Introduction

My story is not exciting, it’s not impressive, it’s not astounding or captivating… it’s generally boring. But it’s my adventure… at least the beginning of the beginning. As told by me.


Cast of Characters:

God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit above all. Without Him there is no story.

Neko, Trey, Daisy and Cheetos. The cats. They add love and annoyance to my days. And cat pictures to my stream.

Tryst, PT Cruiser, and Free, cruiser bicycle. Transportation. And I talk to them and about them often. Yes, I do.

Quintus, Nexus 5. Companion and chronicler.


Potential plot points:

Reading, hiking, kayaking, geocaching, walking, running, cycling, traveling, gardening, cooking.

Libertarian and conservative politics, food freedom, religious debates, Android, Google and varied technology, surviving the machinations of Daisy.

Inspiration may be derived from Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Firefly, Sherlock, Disney, Dick Van Dyke Show, Bewitched, Gilmore Girls, Castle and Ted Dekker.

Pictures of buildings, Free, stickers, ducks, cats, rubber duckies, trees, clouds, squirrels, Tryst, my breakfast/lunch/dinner and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Real God, real people, real relationships. This is a small, growing church that believes in God's grace for everyone. The services are excellent. Pastor Tub is an excellent teacher who follows God's leading and usually goes verse by verse to apply the Word to our lives. Melissa (PT's wife) is probably the first person you'll meet, friendly and enthusiastic but honest about her life. The music is loud and great, recognizable songs and choruses from modern radio, and everyone is encouraged to stand/sit/dance/sing/pray according to their own preference. Everyone is friendly and approachable but not pushy.

It's about the same as any. The atmosphere is modern with touch screen game units and barstool sections. Clean enough. Free WiFi.

Drove down at Christmas for their Walk Through Bethlehem, it was good but it was the people who were great. Pastor Ron is awesome. After the whole group had am impromptu Bible study /discussion which he mediated wonderfully. Everyone was friendly and welcoming.

Judging by the other reviews, I was little bit hesitant to eat here but it's clean with a good selection of relatively fresh food. Nothing really stands out as tasty for coming back but nothing was horribly over- or undercooked, either. While they say they have a wide variety, everything but the sushi is standard fare with an Asian feel. Basically, I wouldn't recommend it but I was not horrified and if you like sushi, it seems a good choice for the variety and price.

We were here for a friend's birthday party (she used to work here) and so hot special attention and a room to ourselves. Still, service was good and the food was enjoyed by all. My grilled shrimp and scallops are delicious with a fair portion of each. The French fries and green beans are nothing special. They had fried mushrooms and squash that everyone loved. 5% discount for cash (no ATM). Prices are high but it is fresh seafood (hint: do not go here for a burger).

It was fairly empty at 6 pm on a Tuesday so I can't truly judge but service was quick enough and my server, Sarah, was attentive without being annoying. The Cajun Shrimp & Chicken Pasta was a good serving size, spicy and creamy in balance, excellent flavor. It needed a piece of bread or a side salad but didn't include either. A bit expensive. The host just came by and offered me a drink to go. Bonus point.
