No Podcast Today

Hey there fellow foodies, listeners, friends…

Just so you know, I meant to mention this on the podcast last week but my son is graduating from high school today and I decided to take the day off to help him celebrate. That means that Lea and Ray also have the day off, which means that there will be no podcast episode of The Man Who Ate the Town today.

We will be back next week to talk more “food news and views…”
