Progress continues to be made at Earth Bread + Brewery where they’ve recently posted a photo album that chronicles the construction.

    I have heard that there have been a lot of posts since I made my statement (which I thought was only going to the editor) regarding the proposed menu at Time in which owner Jason basically described the menu concept that I created. Since then a menu has been posted on another site that someone told me about and I reviewed it. I am happy to say that thanks to my sister/attorney and perhaps karma it seems they decided to go back to their steakhouse concept. I heard there were a lot of positive things said about me here and also negative things. I would like to thank those of you that know me or know of me or just think it was wrong and backed me up. I am not going to read any of them. Now it’s important to me that people know it is not my menu …haha what a funny business. The menu is terribly unimaginative and generally boring, which I think shows that they had to scramble when they realized that I would not let them get away with it. At least I hope that is the reason…I wish them all the best of luck.
