Alrighty.  I still have a little motivation left over and I did promise some local content, so let’s keep the ball rolling.  Today we’ll be talking about a place that I actually visited two months ago (where does the time go) but because I’m a lazy bastard I’m kind of the last person in town […]

I’ve never really written about Flying Pie, but I’ve been there.  Dozens and dozens of times.  I was born in Boise 39 years ago, and have lived in the area for most of my life, so it’s unthinkable that I would somehow have missed out on what’s widely regarded as the best pizza in town. […]

Recently we celebrated my mother’s 60th birthday.  Mama wanted steak, and I decided she was gonna get it.  The question: where?  The last time I tried to take her out for a steak, the place literally served her a slab of raw meat.  She isn’t fond of “stuffy” places, plus we had kids with us, […]

I spent the first couple of years of the new millennium living in Upstate New York.  Unfortunately, I was a much different person then, especially in regards to food.  I was surrounded by options I’d never had before, and as a rule I ignored them while my then-girlfriend and I made the rounds of various […]

Recently, I was contacted with the offer of a couple of free pizzas to come and check out Blaze Pizza, one of the newer fast casual dining options at The Village at Meridian.  Now I love the Village, and I love pizza, so this was a no-brainer.  Little did I know that I would be […]

The Village at Meridian just keeps growing.  I was recently invited to a pre-opening event for Café Zupas, the newest eatery to take up residence.  It’s primarily a sandwich place, so initially it seemed a strange choice to stick it right next door to Which Wich, another sandwich chain that’s been part of the Village for […]

I like burgers.  A lot.  In fact, I’ve taken some ribbing over how many burgers and burger joints I’ve written about on this blog.  I can’t help it, I like options!  And like pizza, sandwiches and salads, the burger is just one of those foods that lends itself to customization.  I’ve driven all the way […]
