A few quick bites of information about food here in Columbia, Missouri…
- The Bleu move: In case you missed the uproar, Bleu is picking up and moving to the Boone Tavern space. We were given the lowdown by an insider and the move wasn’t Bleu’s choice but is probably the best thing since relations with The Tiger were quite strained. Get the scoop on Show Me Eats. Note: Bleu won’t be reopening until April so plan to get your True/False eats elsewhere.
- Penn Station, a popular sub chain, just opened a franchise location in the Gerbes shopping center on Grindstone (next to Hallmark.) The fresh lemonade has gotten high marks from friends.
- Get your tickets now for the Art of Food evening benefiting North Village Arts District Farmers and Artisans Market. For $30 a ticket (or $50 for two) you can enjoy food and beverages. Local chefs from local chefs from Broadway Brewery, Les Bourgeois, Red and Moe’s, Sycamore, and The Wine Cellar & Bistro will be preparing appetizers. The event is March 15th from 6-9 and a limited number of tickets are available at PS Gallery and the Root Cellar.
- The second wave of Bell’s limited release Hopslam is at local outlets like HyVee and Schnucks. Schnucks seems to have the best price, $18.99 a six pack. Here’s what The COMO Collective’s own Zac Early thought of this year’s release.
