Little Tokyo – A Summer Sushi Sensation

Little Tokyo – A Summer Sushi Sensation

As everyone is making plans for the annual Independence Day celebrations across the area, our heads fill with visions of barbecues, burgers, and brats. Parties will be attended and our plates will be laden with potato salad, pasta salads, and all foods featured in the classic American summer cookbook. By July 5, most of us are content to not see another burger, hot dog, or dish of potato salad until, well… until the next barbecue. July in the Midwest is hot, humid, and muggy. Most of us succumb to the humidity and have the air conditioning turned on if we are lucky enough to have AC. On these hot, lazy days of summer, jumping into the kitchen and turning on the stove is not very appealing. Even grilling can be a tiresome experience when the temperature breaks 90 degrees. Going out to eat is always a lovely option, and we are always looking for a place with something light, refreshing, and different.

Thumser’s 19th Hole – It’s a Hole in One!

Thumser’s 19th Hole – It’s a Hole in One!

June is finally here! The foliage is in bloom, everything is lush and green and, for many, any spare moment is spent outdoors enjoying the warm weather. Many of the golfers out there know that, traditionally, the 19th hole refers to the clubhouse of a golf course. A place to relax and gloat over your brilliant birdie on the 8th hole or drown your over par status at the bar.

The Corner Grill Dubuque

The Corner Grill Dubuque

One of the great perks of living in a larger city is access to a great diversity of eats within a short distance. Everything from Cuban to Polish, Vietnamese to Greek. It is one of the hardest ‘perks’ to give up when you move to a smaller community. There is just not the demand for specific cuisines without the ethnic communities around. Although we would love to see Dubuque’s food scene continue to expand and evolve, we are very lucky to have a passionate few who want to share their nation’s specialties and do it with great pride. The Corner Grill is just one of these places.

Spring is in the air!

Welcome April. We have ever so impatiently been awaiting your arrival. If all has gone as planned, by the time this issue reaches your hands, all of the snow has melted and each and every one of us are doing the happy “Spring has Sprung” dance. As the warmer air drenches us with balmy 60-degree temperatures and flowers and plants break the earth’s surface, we will all know we have survived another winter. April is here and with glorious excitement we look forward to the change. What does this mean for us locally? Time to shake off those cold weather doldrums, call up some friends, and hit the road. Where do you go? How about Rhody’s Food and Spirits?

¡Viva La Mexico!

¡Viva La Mexico!

Hello March, how do you do? We are all hoping you are a month filled with mild temperatures and no snow, but we also know there is very little likelihood of that happening. So for those of us who couldn’t make it to a sunny location with sandy beaches and palm trees, jump in the car and head to Los Aztecas Mexican Restaurant. They have two locations in Dubuque and one in Galena. From the minute you pull up to either of the Dubuque locations, you already feel like you’re being transported. Both buildings are in a rustic terra cotta hacienda style. Galena’s location is in a strip mall, and does lack a bit of curb appeal, but the interior makes up for the exterior.
