Friday bites

Lots going on right now in Columbia’s food world. To wit:

  • Glenn’s Cafe is moving back to downtown Columbia, specifically the Tiger Hotel. I’m excited, because Glenn’s is pretty darn good food. But be on the lookout for fireworks because from what I can tell, the Tiger Hotel folks have ticked off and/or run off just about everyone they’ve come across (Bleu, local chefs, The Oak Room project, SEC football fans, even – at times – True/Falsers), so a pairing with the reportedly (and contrary to my personal experience) prickly folks at Glenn’s Cafe should be interesting.
  • Logboat Brewing is coming along quite well, thank you very much. Really looking forward to these guys coming on-line.
  • Within the next few weeks – at least in theory – International Taphouse, Gunter Hans and Freebird Burrito will be opening their doors for business.
  • Last but certainly not least, today is Food Truck Friday at the Inside Columbia offices on W. Broadway. At least nine mobile food vendors selling awesomeness in the out-of-doors (and Dennis Clay is doing cronuts!). See you there.

Finally, I’ll be on KFRU at 10:15 this morning. Allegedly we’ll be taking about dining in our neighboring big cities to the east and the west (and maybe Denver?!), but who knows. Simon likes to throw curveballs just for fun.
