I'm sad to start off this post with a closing: Épicerie Brimbelle, the French gourmet shop on Shamrock just west of JTM, is closing. Times are hard for little high-end places, I guess. Hope someone has some worthy openings to submit.
Summer is in full swing, which (hopefully) means trips to the park or the beach. If you’re taking a picnic along, you should know a few food safety rules so you can pack, transport, and eat your meal without the threat of food poisoning. Liz Weinandy
