If you’re from the Detroit area in particular or Michigan in general, you may have an appreciation for Vernor’s, one of America’s great regional soft drinks. This spicy, hyper-bubbly barrel aged ginger ale has made Michigan kids sneeze for generations. Here’s a look at one of their vintage bottle, all hot-an’-spicy-like.
I’m doing a painting each day this month. 30 paintings in 30 days. Being November, the Month of the Feast, the theme is Things We Love to Eat and Drink.
A painting a day, and yes, they’re for sale. (except this one, which has already been sold) And they’re affordable: $99, which includes free first-class shipping. You can order on my Etsy store by clicking here. Check this blog every day (or the Etsy store) to see the new painting du jour. Each one will be 5″ by 7″ on sturdy illustration board.
I’ll need some content, folks, so if you have any suggestions for good subjects, leave a comment or write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. What goodies would you like to see memorialized as art? What’s your favorite comfort food? Your most-loved childhood treat? The hometown food you miss most? If you moved away tomorrow, what local specialty would you long for? And, looking ahead, what other themes would you suggest?
Tip o’ the day: Check out EatingtheRoad.com. The flow-charts alone are worth the trip.
Coming soon: Wisconsin’s Pride: cheese & summer sausage, a deconstructed Blimpy Burger, Cafe Du Monde beignets & café au lait, and a few holiday favorites.
Thanks, too, to Michael Stern of RoadFood.com for his mention here.
