Geeksboro

This place truly is coffee with a new meaning. Currently serving Krankie’s Coffee from Winston-Salem, located opposite on the same block from Centennial Trading Co. (both equally deserving of their own posts), but back to Geeksboro.

During the holidays, I ventured here for the first and second times, the first merely for some design work and a coffee and the second time with my cousin to see Holy Motors. What a great movie, and something Greensboro has been missing since losing the Janus (Rest In Peace Janus Theatre). Small independent films are exactly what will bring some cinematic culture back to Greensboro, especially since losing Video Review as well. Perhaps writing this really only makes me feel the need to write an article the chronicles the loss of so many goods places in Greensboro and the phoenix-esque rise of so many new places that will eventually become staples in the community to fill the void that was lost in the former.

They serve a great Americano and Cafe Au Lait at this place, sell Krankies Coffee by the bag, among other local items.

Whether you are heading there to check out their barista action or going to catch a flick, it’s worth stopping by.

The Crown & Goose

 

Voted this year yet again the best Cheeses in Knoxville, Tennessee, The Crown & Goose has been mentioned on here before, and has long been a mainstay of mine when visiting the Alma Mater.  I even had my graduation meal there in the patio with family and friends along with the ex and hers.  Their game pies, shoestring french fries, and battered fish and chips as well as bangers and mash are all about as spot-on as a remake of UK favorites can get, when not in the UK.

Made in America

Literally, now you can even make your food quite more literally ‘in’ America.  Jumbalaya in Alaska, Split Fried Hot Dogs in Florida, Stir Fry in Minnesota.. you get the point.   I guess you’d have a lot of rounds of cooking to do if you selected Rhode Island or Delaware, etc.
