I was on KFRU yesterday morning (you’re welcome about the advance notice) talking about Lucky’s and a few other notable notes. We took an alarming number of calls about “Bubba Burgers,” whatever those are. One thing we didn’t get to because of time was Glenn’s Cafe. I’ll make a few more visits before doing a full review but my initial take is, “Go for lunch.” The 8th Street Burger, fries and cup of gumbo one day had me enthusiastic about their relocation downtown, but a full-on dinner experience last week was comedically poor. So, take it easy, go for lunch and let them work out their dinner kinks.

In other news, the Columbia Area Career Center was named one of the top 100 high school and technical culinary outposts in the country. If you’ve watched them over the years you know this is an honor but not a surprise – and it didn’t come without hard work by both instructors and students. Congrats all around.

A couple of must-reads from The Washington Post this week – this tragedy and this tragedy.

You need to check out 20 historic black and white photographs colorized. And here are some more. And here is what the world looks like to a bird. Michael Pollan explains how we ended up with all of this dishonestly priced food and makes the point that, 

In a sense, cheap food has subsidized the collapse in wages that we’ve seen. Part of repairing the whole system will involve paying people more and internalizing the real cost of producing this food.
