The Votes are In…and Cold Beer in Oxford Wins!
Hard for some to believe, but the Alderman voted, and cold beer and light wine in Oxford (on Sundays, too!) will indeed be a reality in stores starting September 19 according to social media chatter after tonight’s Board of Alderman meeting. Think of all the money you’ll save on ice! Tonight’s vote did not include additional Sunday sales in restaurants beyond the game weekend/designated holiday Sundays.
I’ve got a few pieces of food news to report today since I was running around town distributing Ole Miss football schedule magnets. Yep, it’s that time of year again. Are you ready for it? Let me know if you need a batch of magnets for your business and I’ll bring some over. Otherwise, there’s a list of places you can pick one up for yourself at the bottom of this post.
McEwen’s debuted a new menu today and I just happened to be there to try a couple of items (call it foodie intuition). Pictured here is the grilled shrimp salad with spinach, grilled peaches, roasted pecans, feta cheese and topped with a balsamic drizzle and rosemary dressing. Also pictured is a new Farmer’s Platter. What used to be the vegetable plate is now a plate that has vegetables chosen by Woodson Ridge Farms and prepared by McEwen’s chefs. The photo shows today’s special of fried green tomatoes, string beans and sugared yams.
New Emileigh’s Concept Opens Thursday
I stopped into Emileigh’s today and they say they are ready to open the doors on Thursday as the new concept which they are calling Roasted Food Company. Breakfast and lunch will be available seven days a week. For lunch there will be three meats, which will undergo a brining and roasting process, and will be served alongside a choice of six rotating sides. The market side of the restaurant will be larger than it was before, and you’ll always be able to get your favorite Emileigh’s baked goods from the same spot.
