A Quick Update…

18 Jan


OK, I’ve been out of town for a week, and as usual, the food news didn’t stop while I was away. I’m including a list below of the latest happenings to help keep everyone informed. More to come!

  • After 40 years, Larson’s Big Star will soon become CashSaver Cost Plus Food Outlet (the owners will remain the same)
  • Owner Jason Plunk closed his bar, Taylor’s Pub, this past week
  • According to rumors, a Krystal Burger may be opening in the new Exxon station going up on Hwy 6
  • The third location of Lusa Pastry Cafe, located in the Belk shopping center, is scheduled to open on January 22
  • The 10th Annual Empty Bowls Pantry fundraiser is gearing up for February 7 (more details to come).

Empty Bowls Pantry Fundraiser

11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.


Oxford-University Methodist Church

North 9th St. and University Ave. (parking available in church lot located on Tyler Ave. and 10th St.)

A bowl of soup, bread, and a bottle of water will be served. Attendees will choose their own collector’s bowl, crafted and donated by the Ole Miss Mud Daubers and local potters, as a reminder of the meal’s purpose…that someone’s bowl is always empty.
