Friday Food Tour  5.24.13

Happy 3 day weekend! Hope you have some fun plans for your 'kickstart to summer' long weekend. I plan to enjoy some quality patio time and several tastes of whatever Grant has on the grill! So, on to the food tour for this Friday...

Be sure to read this great article from Cityview's Food Dude on 'Hot Dogs and Nostalgia.' It's a nice piece of hot dog history and some info on the new gourmet hot dog place, 'Hot Shots.'

We love good artisanal bread - in fact, if Grant stops in at Gateway Market and doesn't come home with a loaf of that twisty sesame seed bread, he's in big trouble. Check out this article from the Des Moines Register and you'll find out some excellent places to get your fix.

If you're looking for a tasty sandwich, this post from Slaking Fool on the Manhattan Deli should point you in the right direction. Serious food porn photos will get your stomach growling, too.

Looks like another restaurant featuring burgers has opened in Ames. We really like Oddfellows on the north side of Ames, but will for sure have to check out Wiseguys Burgers in Campustown. Here's a 'First Look' from Metromix Des Moines.

And finally, we should definitely have a cocktail to celebrate the start of summer this weekend. So how about the caipirinha? I had my first caipirinha at Cafe Beaudelaire in Ames and had to buy a bottle of cachaca on the way home! The Daily Meal brings us 'Learn How to Make Summer's Ultimate Cocktail, the Caipirinha.' Enjoy!

Thank a vet this weekend!
