Happy #foodiefriday!

This past week I had a birthday and I got to celebrate by grabbing a free scoop of ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s! I’m not much into sweets, but ice cream is my one true weakness, especially if it’s chocolate! Of course, I had to get Chocolate Therapy so I could fully indulge myself in birthday bliss.

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

As I was grabbing my daily coffee this morning, I stopped to pick up a copy of this week’s Hippo. Immediately, the giant picture of delectable chicken tenders on the front cover had me dreaming of my favorite comfort foods! I know comfort food preferences vary from person to person, but I doubt there’s a single human on this planet that will deny enjoying a guilty pleasure comfort food now and again. My personal favorite? Just happens to be buffalo chicken tenders, and Stark Brewing Co. is my favorite place to grab them. Next? Chocolate ice cream. I usually stop into Ben & Jerry’s for some Chocolate Therapy when I need a summertime afternoon pick-me-up. The Farm is also great for filling my need for comfort food. There’s nothing like their Pulled Pork Sandwich!

What is your favorite comfort food? Where downtown do you go to get your fix?

We are officially one week away from St. Patrick’s Day! We’ve begun to round up some celebrations happening throughout Downtown in a special blog post here! I look forward to all the fun Irish food every year, and Downtown most certainly does not disappoint.

Some St Patty’s Day #foodie highlights:

  • The Rover serves an amazing traditional Irish breakfast that will be served up starting at 6am and feature giveaways all day long!
  • Stark Brewing Co. will be serving their classic corned beef and featuring two new stouts for St. Patrick’s day only: Raspberry Chocolate and Tirimisu made with cold pressed coffee!
  • The Shaskeen will kick off at 5:30am with breakfast, and of course pints, and feature their Irish Classics for lunch and dinner: The Corned Beef Dinner and Guinness Beef Stew!

Hey, everyone! Trixie here, dishing up your latest #foodiefriday pics!

Julia is currently on her way to Texas (lucky!) and has been raving all week about how much barbecue she plans on eating this weekend. I’ve never had authentic, down-south barbecue, but watching Guy Fieri talk about it on the Food Network drives me crazy! I’m sure its something I’d absolutely love to try.

I went on a search for some barbecue fun facts to share, and here’s what I found:

The most popular food to cook on a grill is a burger.

No one is sure of where the word ‘barbecue’ originated.

And Lyndon B. Johnson hosted the first barbecue at the White House, which featured Texas-style barbecued ribs! (how appropriate!)

Here in the office we’re still recovering from The Taste of Downtown! Held this past Wednesday, the Taste was a huge success–there were almost sixty participating businesses, restaurants, and vendors and twenty stops along the way! There was no shortage of great music either! Alli Beaudry was at the Plaza, Tristan Omand was outside of the Palace, BooBoo Groove was inside the YMCA, an acapella group was at City Hall Plaza, and Manchester Music Mill had a phenomenal band outside their shop!  We hope you enjoyed the night of tasting, shopping, and art! Check out some pictures we took along the trail here. If you have any photos you took at the Taste, please share them with me at jwhitney (at) intownmanchester.com!

I cannot believe this is our 25th #foodiefriday post! Time certainly flies when you’re having fun! There are so many great restaurants downtown and the best part of this blog series is being able to visit new places (and snapping photos!). I had a friend ask me what my favorite restaurants were downtown last weekend…let’s just say my list went on and on and on! There is such a variety, it’s hard to choose! What is your favorite downtown spot?



#foodiefriday — Feb-28-2014

A portion of what I do here at Intown is scroll through Facebook and Twitter and post updates from our downtown businesses. Being the foodie wannabe I am, I am always drawn to pictures of food! A picture of a sushi roll from Mint  has me practically drooling at my desk at 10AM. Completely normal right?

I’ve seen “#foodiefriday” on twitter lately and I figured, why not have an Intown #foodiefriday post every Friday?

If you are a downtown restaurant and have a new special or menu item, email me a picture (jwhitney@intownmanchester.com)  to be featured in a #foodiefriday blog post!
