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. Feel free to read and/or subscribe over at Substack.

Notes from all over, SpoAP postponement edition


First, SpoAP, our AeroPressing contest, will not happen this Sunday. I know many of you had canceled all kinds of appointments, seminars, weddings, funerals, floggings, etc. to attend this, but sadly a schedule conflict has come in the way. We're looking at rescheduling it for April-ish, and will keep you informed.

From the happier news department, Boots Bakery has a liquor license application in, and is looking at opening in May.

Was Simpler Times recently featured... anywhere? We're seeing a lot of hits from people searching for it. To save you some time: Don't. Drink. It.
