[eat] Home Grown Kansas: Wichita’s CSA

“It’s like Christmas morning!” I said to my friend Amy back in May, the day before we were to report to the Old Town farmers’ market to pick up our very first CSA share. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. The concept: you pay a local farm a certain amount each week or month, and you get a selection of their produce each week. Rather than buying each item piecemeal from the farmers’ market, you just get a share of whatever the farm has available. It’s a cross between bulk buying and those “mystery grab bags” at the dollar store.

[eat] Where to Find Great French Fries

Like many other people around town, the rain put a damper on my 4th of July plans. When my friends and I found out the Saturday barbecue we were supposed to attend was cancelled, we headed to Oasis Lounge (4121 W. Maple) to indulge in burger and a beer. I had heard the French fries were worth checking out, so I got an order. They were homemade, thick cut, just the right amount of greasy, and hit the spot.

[eat] 10 More Fantastic Wichita Lunch Spots

My first article for verb [ICT] many moons ago was 10 Fantastic Wichita Lunch Spots, highlighting great Wichita dining. Since I had to limit the list to 10, there were several amazing places not mentioned in that article. Readers chimed in with numerous suggestions of other local favorites. Since that post was published in November, some of the great spots have closed and some new spots have sprung up. So, I decided to continue the great 10 list highlighting many reader favorites and some flashy new lunch options.
1. Cinnamon’s Deli (3 locations) – …

[think] The Restaurant Experience

There’s something so nice about a great dining out experience. When the drinks are flowing, the food is hot and delicious and the atmosphere is special, everyone leaves the restaurant feeling good and anxious to return for a second visit.
But, as you and I know, it doesn’t always go like that. Sometimes your water glass stays unexplicably empty for half the meal. The food comes out, and you have a fries instead of the side salad you ordered (or worse, vice versa). You leave feeling frustrated and grumbling, “well, I’ll …
