Don’t know about you, but I have always thought of popcorn as fun. When we make it at home with the grandchildren, it is to spread the fun and good times. When we attend a movie and order buttery popcorn, it is because we associate that taste with watching a good story on the big screen. When we use popcorn to make delightful balls, squares and bags, it is usually for Halloween or Valentine treats to share with those we love. What’s not to love about popcorn? Especially when you have so many choices — 250 to be exact, with more on the way.

Are your taste buds asking for something different for lunch or dinner? Tired of the same old, same old, day after day, and perhaps really haven’t decided what you’d like to try? Or, maybe you have a special date with someone you’d like to impress? May I suggest that you try Sol Mediterranean Grill at 4230 Calder in Beaumont, owned and managed by long-time food guru Dave Jones.

Zombie Voodoo Fest 2012 invades Southeast Texas July 7-8

 

A mere 43 years after Woodstock, the promoters of a music and culture event to be held in Beaumont are hoping for an influx of mostly young people looking to have a good time. The peace signs and love beads and other relics of the Summer of Love have been consigned to the dustbin of history, replaced by the walking dead.
