Re: “Changes for the crew behind St. Pete's Social

Not surprising, considering it was one of the worst-managed bars in the area. The space was nice and the food was pretty good (after a year of continuous promises), but that's where it ended.

The bar was doomed from the start: unknowledgable yet pompous bar staff, hundreds of year-old bottled beers in the cooler but no list to choose from, a poor liquor selection, and prices that were completely out of whack with the neighborhood. [hint: it's NE St Pete, not Midtown Manhattan. $8 beers and $12 well drinks don't fly here]

I enjoyed the selection of local draft beers, but the condescending service made it uncomfortable. Their days were numbered from the start.

This place is legit. Super cute and great food, and it's affordable even.

Re: “Baking class at the St. Pete Free Skool

When I was broke as hell, learning how to cook was the only way I survived. It's so much cheaper and healthier to bake your own bread and cook your own meals from scratch. Plus the mindful, zen-like experience of it is therapeutic so you cook, and then eat, away your depression from being so damn poor. I never ate better than when I made everything I ate from scratch. Even when it was plain rice with frozen veggies and tobasco drenched scrambled eggs -- that was cheaper and infinitely healthier than cup'o'noodles.

Re: “10 thoughts on Tampa Bay's year in food and drink

There is PLENTY of bad food around Tampa Bay, but don't be so cynical. Some very good dishes are also out there if you seek out the right places. I hope you'll check out some of the restaurants I've had a chance to review in the past 18 months--many are worth your attention.

Looking forward to sinking my brain teeth into this, and then slurping it down my brain gullet. Yes, exactly.

Re: “A brief history of Potlikker, CL's new food & drinks page

I'm not really concerned about spelling -- I was raised on the stuff -- fabulously delicious and I was always told it was very, very good for me (especially with all of that pork fat floating on the top)...but Hey it was made from Collard Greens, so it had to be good, right?

Re: “Squeeze Juice Works brings fresh tastes to St. Petersburg

I've learned tons about this product from the squeezers themselves. I am confident this company is built on integrity and the juice is everything they say it is and more! I have worked as an out patient OT for 15 years and the nutritional benefits of Squeeze can have a great impact on one's health. Definitely worth a try.

Re: “Soup for dummies

This was so delicious. Going into my regular rotation. I had it with some bacon crumbles and gouda cheese.
