Eat like a 'localvore' for the holidays
Dec 22 2009, 11:41 AM
The relationship between the holidays and food and drink goes back as far as anyone can imagine. Most people can’t remember what gifts they received as children, but we almost always remember what Mom or Grandma served us at the dinner table.
With the current economy fresh on the minds of most Americans, this holiday season will be one to really think about the meaning of the season. We have always put a sense of community and supporting our local neighbors ahead of any other ideal and this year those ideals will really be put to the test. Rather than tell you what we think you should eat and drink, we would rather share our suggestions for a few local gems that can easily grace your holiday tables. For every item you purchase from a local business, you will feed your friends and family and our local economy.

What’s Up rocked the second half of ’09 starting with good, old fashioned gluttony. We paid a visit to downtown Bremerton’s Coffee Club Diner, where we demanded to take part in its 10-pound Burger Challenge.

Jan 06 2010, 10:19 AM
