Sweeties Sweets is running the VIP Egift program again to finance the electrical changes that need to be made for the new machine. The new machine needs 3-phase power, which is not unusual, but the service to the building will have to be changed.
You can purchase one for yourself or someone else at this site. If you are going to purchase one for someone else be sure to use their name and email so as not to confuse theirs with yours.
Note when you get to the purchase screen, there is not a 'Promotion Code' and there is a place for a message to the recipient. Be sure to tell the recipient to bring the confirmation email to Sweeties to get a VIP card.
To recap it's free ice cream for life and 50% discount on other Sweeties' products for 5 years. It's for personnel use only. VIP does not reflect and ownership in Sweeties Sweets. Free ice cream is a kids or small cup or cone 1 per card per visit. Any other ice cream size or product would be eligible for the 50% discount. Membership can be revoked for abuse or violation of the spirit of the program.
To all current members: They will start requiring you to present your card at time of purchase so that we can verify the name on the account. They had a mix up where somebody used a card balance that wasn't theirs.
CBC Docs, Dish Pigs tell dishwashers' stories: 'The craziest are always going to be in the dish pit'
In a city known for nightlife and haute cuisine, Dish Pigs tells the untold stories of dishwashers in Montreal. Through intimate first-person accounts and gritty visual storytelling, the film unearths the deeper truths about the working-class economy that lie just beyond the doors of your favourite restaurant kitchens.
Our story focuses on the lives of three eccentric dishwashers, each navigating their own day-to-day struggles while working nights in the dish pit.
34-year-old Shawn began working at Montreal restaurant Le Bremner after a family tragedy left his life in ruins in 2016. Under the guidance of Chef Danny Smiles, Shawn is finally putting his life back together.
We meet 61-year-old Claude, a veteran dishwasher — he’s been working in the restaurant industry for 40 years. Claude spends his free time acting as his neighborhood’s unofficial handyman and helping people in his community with their daily tasks.
Then there’s 26-year-old Ali, a Texas native who came to Montreal to broaden her horizons and introduce Montrealers to a whole style of dancing. Ali has a newfound philosophy on life, thanks to her work in the dish pit.
Performing the tasks no one else wants to do — cleaning nasty messes, scraping remnants of people’s meals into growing garbage, ensuring chefs have what they need to turn ordinary food into extraordinary meals — one has to wonder: who are these restaurant industry underdogs who choose to clean up our mess? And what makes them tick?
Dish Pigs takes viewers past the cultured atmosphere of fine dining into the dish pit, where the wild antics of dishwashers, sous-chefs and chefs are unleashed as life moves to a different rhythm: rinse, wash, repeat.
There's a new foodie magazine in South Carolina and this one has its eyes, noses and taste buds set on Georgetown County.
You may have seen the premiere issue of Southern Flavor Magazine show up in the hands of many business owners around town these past weekends. That's because we went personally to each one and dropped off copies for them to give out to customers for free.
You might be able to find a copy still, if you're lucky. They've flown off the shelves.
Established in late 2018, the magazine's publisher sought to change the landscape and expand outward in culinary journalism. Here's a little about Southern Flavor Magazine from Bert Wood, the publisher.
Southern Flavor Magazine is dedicated to capturing the recipes, flavors, and joys of the Lowcountry. As the only local publication to highlight the entire Lowcountry region, our readers will walk away with a greater understanding and appreciation for the small southern towns they live in and love to visit. Ultimately, it is our goal to educate, inspire and excite our readers to all that the Lowcountry has to offer from a true and Southern culinary perspective.
You'll also see some Georgetown restaurants covered, starting in Fall 2019.
We're excited to see Southern Flavor Magazine be well received in Georgetown and are looking forward to its future on the culinary adventure of Georgetown.

"No bland food allowed!"
If you hear that phrase yelled down the halls of the International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach, you best be seasoning quickly. Renown Chef Tom Mullally isn't too kind to tasteless food.
However, the chef is a charmer. He can warm the hearts and stomachs of people at the same time. His instructional skills are quite impressive and is a culinary asset to the Horry-Georgetown Technical College.
Below, you'll see some of videos, demonstrating his knowledge - and the fun he has while doing so. For if there's no fun, there's no point in doing it.

Danny Smith is not only an awesome dude, but he's a superb chef! If you've dined at Frank's Outback in Pawleys Island, you already know this.
Let's look at the dish he and friend Charles Bardo from R'way Pizza and Family Tavern prepared at the Myrtle Beach Area Hospitality Association's Farm to Table Dinner this year.
Wild Game - Valley Farms Dry Rubbed & Smoked Bison Ranch Brisket with Hulls Island Farms Mushroom Bread Pudding, Millgrove Farms Collard Greens, Duplin Winery Muscadine Wine Reduction & Hulls Island Farms Micro Greens.
I loved The Simpsons when I was growing up. I remember when my uncle took me to see the first full-length movie in theaters. I even had The Simpsons "Sings the Blues" album and played it nonstop.
So, when I heard there was a Kwik-E-Mart being opened at Myrtle Beach's Broadway at the Beach, my family and I just had to be part of the first wave to enjoy it!
But first, take a look at the tour with simEx-Iwers Entertainment Senior Vice President Mark Cornell and WMBF News reporter Meredith Helline.
The interior is as realistic as a Kwik-E-Mart would be. The Heat Lamp Hot Dogs were really awesome. Cornell said they went through various tasting sessions with different hot dogs and buns to get the right combination. And, yes, it was the right combination. Plus, the toppings were great, too. All Heinz products. I chose honey mustard for my topping.
The Buzz Cola is here, in all its glory. So are the Squishers drinks. But the real show stopper was the Lard Lad Doughnuts - yes, Homer's iconic doughnut here in Myrtle Beach!
You can buy regular size doughnuts or the large, 9-inch, 1.2 lb. doughnut! You'll have to see the photos below to believe it.
My family wants to personally thank Cornell for all his hospitality Friday. We enjoyed our visit and recommend any fan of the show (going into its 30th season) to stop by and live the excitement of a replica from a show that is truly run at a professional level at Broadway at the Beach.
For me, it awoke nostalgia. And I loved being a kid again - for just a few minutes.
