What a beautiful day at the races! Today is Kentucky Oaks Day and Churchill Downs is buzzing with Derby excitement. Folks everywhere from the Turf Club to the Paddock are dressed to the nines (and sometimes 11's!) and enjoying the beautiful weather (wait, just felt a little rain!) No worries, the food and drinks are DELICIOUS:)

The Sloppy Joe is a classic sandwich that kids of all ages love to enjoy. Known for it's savory beefy goodness, the Sloppy Joe is not for everyone. "What about vegetarians and vegans" you say? This season we introduced the Sloppy Jane, Joe's fresh and healthy sister. Made with tempeh, fresh tomatoes, peppers, onions, savory spices and a touch of molasses, this new sammy will tempt even the most devout carnivore.
This Sunday is Earth Day, a great time to evaluate your impact on the environment and take steps to protect the world around us.

This weekend, folks around the country will celebrate St. Patrick's Day and, of course, no one does it quite like Boston. At the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, we will serve up the traditional South Boston St. Patrick's Day Breakfast in celebration of the St. Patty's Day Parade, the world's oldest recorded parade for the holiday, first held in 1737!
Here in Chicago, we mark the occasion with a technicolor river and lots of great food and drink! Jake Melnick's kick's off the day with their annual St. Patty's Day "Pre-Soak" starting with breakfast at 8 a.m. for folks getting ready to watch the parade. For front row seats to the traditional dyeing of the Chicago River (no it's not naturally that green!) revelers can get in the spirit at Fulton's on the River and enjoy Guiness topped Bloody Marys.
In the food truck race, our team at LVMS leaves the competition in the dust. This firey wagon will serve up a true Taste of NASCAR this weekend in sunny Las Vegas. On the menu are some seriously sensational hot dogs loaded with taste-tempting toppings. There's the Kentucky Dog, topped with cheddar cheese sauce, bacon and chopped tomato, or the Charlotte Dog, heaped with barbequed pulled pork and red cole slaw. But we can't forget the trackside favorite, the Vegas Buffet Dog, served with smoked prime rib, caramelized onions, giardinere and creamy horseradish sauce. OMG!
