Hannibal Season 3

NBC has just cancelled Hannibal. Unless show runner Bryan Fuller can find a new network it will end after this summer's 13 episode run. We still have at least 10 episodes to look forward to.

Olga Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

It's chapter 11 so they still have a chance.

I like their gyros, but every time I eat one I still feel a little bit hungry.

Olga Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Olga's, a chain located largely in Michigan, has filled for chapter 11 bankruptcy. They are known mostly for their gyros, (but they have other items like muffins and salads.)

Hannibal Season 3

Did anyone out there catch the third season premier of Hannibal? This season it seems the episode titles will be named after Italian food reference, (the first two were French and Japanese.)

(I liked the fact that their was a mini X Files Reunion or sorts: David Duchovny on Aquarius and Gillian Anderson on Hannibal. I heard a real X Files reunion is in the works.)

Berea KY

In about a month I'm thinking about making a trip down to Berea KY. After that I'll ramble on eastward. Can anyone recommend a good place in I Berea. I've heard of The Boone Tavern, but that that might get kind of crowded. Actually anywhere east of Berea is good? Thanks in advance.

Jeopardy Winner

Jeopardy Winner

Today seven time jeopardy winner Greg Seroka lost. His total earnings were roughly 180,000$. The announcer said he is a professional chef. Like all professional chefs I assume he going to use the money to open a restaurant, (though I could be wrong.)
I'm just wondering is 180,000$ is enough to open a decent place?

Supermarket music

When I worked at a supermarket more than 20 years ago I remember the Muzak system playing two songs:
Allman Brothers Little Martha
The Theme From Thirtysomething

The other stuff I forgot.

Still Two Howard Johnsons left...who knew?

I was at the one in Bangor Maine almost three years ago. It was a little run down at the heels. The clam sandwich was good though.

Horrible Restaurant Names

This wasn't a restaurant but a gift shop in Walnut Iowa off I80. It was called Sophie's Choice, (maybe they should have seen the movie.)

Today instead of stopping for lunch a regular restaurant I went to place where they well selling bbq on an empty lot, (it was on Auburn near Paddock in Pontiac MI.) I had 2 Polish Sausages and chips. It wasn't bad, a nice change from the your average Coney Island. They also sell ribs and hamburgers. Has anyone out there have any experience with this kind of set up

Burgoo

Strangely enough I've been to Utica, Il. I'd like go to Kentucky Burgoo or no Burgoo. I've never really been to the south and I'd figure Kentucky is a good place to start. It's just I've read about Burgoo in Roadfood for 20 years and It sounded kind of good, (I like lamb or mutton.)

Burgoo

I have a question about Burgoo. Is it found just in Western Kentucky or all over the state? I'm thinking of making a trip to that state and I want to visit Berea and points east, (I'm in Michigan so it's just straight down I75.)

Soiled Kimono

VH1 had a Saturday Night Live marathon that ended last Sunday
One of the episodes with the original cast mentioned a drink called A Soiled Kimono. It was described as 2/3 French Champagne
1/3 Plum Saki, and topped of with a paper butterfly. Has anyone
out there heard of this drink? Maybe it was just made up for the show.
