Meals with Midgi: A Little of This, a Little of That

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 7:25am
July is a hectic month for me. My day job keeps me hopping, managing 130 volunteers who assist the thousands of visitors coming into our welcome centers for information. I also try to help Grant with some of his paperwork for his business and - of course - I'm working on recipes and cooking classes for Meals with Midgi. In the middle of the month I attend Rollercon in Las Vegas, which is an additional layer of hectic. After 10 days of volunteering at an event with more than 6,000 attendees, it is nice to come home.

Doctor Fermento: Sierra Nevada's collaborations poke into Alaska

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 7:24am
Sierra Nevada Brewing Company is generally credited with reintroducing America to beer with flavor. Way back then, in the mid 1980's American beer drinkers only knew bland, insipid mass-produced lagers with few exceptions. Fritz Maytag was preserving a vital piece of brewing history by resurrecting the flailing Anchor Brewing Company in San Francisco and keeping Anchor Steam Beer alive. I shaped my craft brewing palate on that beer. Jack McAuliffe's flash-in-the-pan stab at craft brewing in Sanoma reminded folks that not everyone was happy with beer's half-a-century- long status quo.

Haines Affair

Capital City Weekly - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 7:24am
HAINES - Sitting in the back of an open pickup truck amid shards and strands and stalks and tailings of hay, my feet pressed against one side of the muddy truck bed, my hands and back against the other, bumping down a dirt road, the wind rushing past doing nothing to dilute the smell of some animal that may have ridden where I did ... I was on my way to the fair!
