This Week in Gut Check, Regurgitated


Believe it or not, congealed pork blood at the fantastic Vietnamese restaurant Phuc Loi wasn't the most challenging thing I ate this week. That would be Doritos Late Night "Last Call Jalapeño Popper" chips. Talk about regurgitating the week! Then again, maybe we should wait till someone tries the Dive Bar Thanksgiving meal before deciding the absolute most challenging foods...

What else did we do this week?
The Sneak gave us not just one but two reports from the St. Louis International Film Festival.

Throwback of the House discovered the fallacy of weight-loss programs thanks to pumpkin pudding.

The Noble Writ tested himself against California cabernets, while the Beertender recommended brews for your Thanksgiving feast.

Farmers' Market Share enjoyed real maple syrup, and the Novice Foodie enjoyed a trip to Asheville and Atlanta.

Drink of the Week celebrated the Manhattan at Off Broadway, and Chef's Choice celebrated the cooking of Chuck Friedhoff.

The Dive Bomber struck the Black Derby Saloon, while Stuck to My Ribs hit up Dirty Dogz.
That's it for this week. Next week will be short because of the holiday, but packed with goodness. Have a great weekend. Eat something good.
