News from the local dairy:
I mentioned this last week in the dining newsletter but forgot to mention it here: Shatto released its eggnog two weeks early for everyone already looking to get in the holiday spirit. It's available areawide in grocery stores that carry Shatto. My grocery store was already out of the first run, which can mean only one thing: The neighbors are going to be having fun this year!
Also, Shatto's ice cream should be available now in most grocery stores. It's definitely worth trying, if you haven't already. For Noodletown, it seemed to take a couple of seconds to come around. Flavors are chocolate (pretty good) and vanilla (really good!) with some other flavors (such as strawberry) coming out next year.
Finally and most importantly, Shatto has teamed up with Chipotle to give away free burritos Wednesday night, November 19, at the Chipotle on 14th Street in the Power & Light District. There is a catch, though: In order to receive your gratis burrito, you must bring an empty botella from Shatto for an exchange. The event lasts from 5 to 9 p.m. Also, if a meet-and-greet means anything to you, Leroy Shatto and family will be on hand to greet customers and thank them.
I would like to shake the hand of the man who seems more involved in facets of my life and to tell him to keep up the good work!
