Shameless self-promotion: A while back, we launched a weekly newsletter, The Awesomeness Digest. Focused on food, restaurants, and culture, we have covered topics like eating Belizean rat; working as a cook in a Viking-themed park; the baffling concepts of Lørdagspizzaen and Fredagstacoen; other oddities.

@mtigas Rumples up in the Kitchen #3


Mike or @mtigas rumples up in the Kitchen with the Prairie Fire shot. The man from the Midwest who is often referred to as The Sustainable Spokane Man, shares his focused energy, mature attitude and wise realizations over his hometown-favorite tequila and Tabasco. That’s right, he keeps it simple with two ingredients. His favorite way to mix it? Just ask and he will say, “it’s just a straight shot of tequila that’s got enough Tabasco in it to give it a kick (and for me, cover the tequila taste)”. Next time you bump into Mike, pour him a Prairie Fire shot and you will find out why Spokane made it on his list of favorite places he has lived.
