TMA Mondays: A Whole Lot


TMA'ed while listening to Either Way by Snakeships

Whole foods is now a whole lot cheaper thanks to the Amazon effect. Monday was Amazon's first official day owning the bougie grocery store and they cut prices by as much as 43%. They say much more is to come, possibly the converting all Whole Foods into Amazon Go?

Speaking of Whole Foods, Next Level Burger a vegan/vegetarian burger joint just opened last Friday in Roosevelt. We got to try it for ourselves at their preview event, and our carnivorous selves thought it was pretty darn good.

Knee High Stocking Co. is a whole lot more than just a speakeasy now. It has expanded the location and the menu to serve Filipino brunch and dinner. The speakeasy vibes will stay the same, now there will just be more delicious foods to go with your prohibition drinks.

There are a whole lot of summer event series ending this labor day weekend, scroll down to see a few you must check out to end summer right.

Meatballs - The most versatile of meat recipes, you can throw them in pasta, subs, pizza, or just about anything. The kitchn blog claims garlic bread is the best vessel for meatball subs, I agree wholeheartedly.


New Sh*t in Town

Kokkaku, Wallingford - Although it's sad that Miyabi 45th is never to return, it's replacement is meaty. The owners describe it as a "Japanese inspired meat house".
