The Hampton Smoker

What's up wtih what's going down? Does a tree falling on the ocean with no one around make a sound? Barbecue, BBQ, Bar-b-que. It's all in how you sell it.

Friday Night at the Drive-In Bingo: Where does the time go?

My peoples, I'm still out here.

Demolition has begun on the restaurant and I'm still cooking at a restaurant in Union Square. I'm so tired, burned and cut up. This is fun!

I've had the opportunity to learn nearly every facet of running a restaurant-- I've worked at the grill, the saute' station, the deep fryer, the prep kitchen, the butchery station....done the paperwork (not fun, but interesting), calculating the price per plate of a dish, placing and receiving orders for merchandise.....and I'm only in my third week. Wow.

I leave you with a tune from Swedish pop genius, Jens Lekman. His name may not be familiar, but the musical genres he hopscotches will most likely ring a bell. The lyrics are romantic, clever and refreshing.

When does the restaurant open? We need to set up a Brethren road trip.

April, Eric. I don't have an exact date yet. Construction is starting Monday and hopefully not long after we can get into the kitchen and start doing our thing.

Take care!
